Oh My God!!!
Im really lucky as we only live 10 minutes away from Snugburys Ice Cream farm, which was very handy when I was pregnant and just HAD to have a tub of honeycomb, which is gorgeous!!
Or Yum Yum! flavour which is vanilla ice cream swirled with homemade toffee sauce, chopped pecan nuts, chocolate chunks, biscuit and toffee pieces.... phew!!
They also make a diabetic ice cream which is very popular.
Its quite good vale for money too, about £2 - £2.50 for a huge sugar cone with 2 scoops of ice cream of your choice.
They also sell the tubs of all their flavoured ice creams and sorbets for you to take home.
There are some goats and pot bellied pigs there in a small field for the children to pet.
Every summer they build massive straw sculptures in their field which attracts loads of attention. This year it is a huge windmill. This and the ones from previous years can be seen on their website.
I used to come here as a child with my parent or grandparents as a special treat. I now enjoy bringing my own children here as it brings back some lovely memories for me.
The ice cream shop is open every day of the year apart from christmas day and boxing day!
And yes, I have been there in the middle of January sat in the car with the heater on full, freezing cold, just to have one of my fave ice creams ever!!
I had never heard of Snugburys until about 18 months ago when I was dating a guy who asked me if I had ever had a Snugburys ice cream and when i replied no, I was told that I had never lived. Surely ice cream isn't the best thing in the entire world to comment I hadn't lived, however when I had the Snugbury's experience I can understand why people rave over it and they do.
Snugbury's is located in Nantwich, probably around 25 minutes away from my home town of SToke on Trent and is a much deserved drive for an extremely tasty ice cream. Its an ideal stop off for passers by and gets very busy during the summer with passers by wanting to sample the delights of their ice cream. I have queued for 45 minutes during the summer to get served, its that good. Surprisingly during the winter also, people always stop off, queues are never as long, however whilst you may sit in your car eating your ice cream, numerous cars come and go and thats when you realise that the reputation of their icecream is so good. It is signposted from the road a mile or so before you actually get there and to be honest I have never noticed it before or I have thought to have stopped. SOmething I will never forget to do from now on.
The business began in 1986, in a farmhouse kitchen where the family made ice cream for friends and family. It progressed on from there and they decided to start to make their own Jersey Ice Cream. Now within the premises they have their own shop within there home where they sell some of the best great tasting flavours that have ever been made.
The best ice cream I had ever had before was from Torquay, Cornish ice cream, now I don't have to travel that far. The amount of flavours that they make is great and there is something available for everyone, it doesn't matter whatflavours you like or don't, you are sure to find something you like. Flavours consist of some of the following:
Death by Chocolate
Mint Choc Chip
These are just a short variation of the different flavours that they make. Prices are very good value too, you can have a cornet with three ample scoops of various flavours for just over £2.00. Within the farm you can also purchase the tubs to take home with you, which I always make sure that I have a little room in my freezer to accommodate these whenever I go.
The flavour is too die for, extremely creamy, however the flavours are great and the combination of both the flavour and creamy does make it a taste sensation that makes you want to keep going back for more. My favourites have got to be Cherry Blizzard, Honey Comb and English Toffee. I have tried different flavour however always go back to these. The toffee and the honeycomb blend in together and it doesn't really put you off that you have various flavours within the ice cream. Its delicious.
For those of you that have a sweeter taste and like something tangy, they also do their own range of fruit sorbet. I have never got around to having this, but surely one day soon I will as I am a little partial to sorbet. They also have every aspect covered, anyone diabetic, they have made ice cream to accommodate people who are not able to eat the original ice cream which I think is fantastic that everyone can experience the Snugbury's fantastic ice cream.
Its definitely worth a stop, whether summer or winter, try it for yourself and i'm sure you will like it as much as I do.
