Mackie’s 19.2 aren’t disappointing quirky ice cream fans this year with four handcrafted festive options to choose from. Following last year’s Christmas Tree flavour, the latest offering will see Aberdonians getting the choice of turkey and cranberry for their main meal and a selection of gingerbread crunch, after- dinner mint or Malteser reindeer for dessert.
The festive flavours – made on the Mackie’s of Scotland Aberdeenshire farm – have now launched – and will be available until stock runs out.
Yvette Harrison, Parlour Manager at Mackie’s 19.2, said: “Our flavours are extra special this year to help get people into the festive mood and lift spirits.
“What better way to do that than combining two of the public’s favourite things, Christmas dinner and ice cream, we think that they will all be interesting but some may be a one-off!
“We wanted to give people an early taste of Christmas and our flavours are perfect for those who can’t wait to tuck in to Christmas dinner – there’s nothing better if you’re trying to get in the spirit as early as possible.
“All four flavours are hand-made limited editions so we would encourage those eager to try, to visit over the next few days to avoid disappointment!”
Mackie’s parlour is Mackie’s first and only ice cream parlour, called 19.2 because it’s located exactly 19.2 miles away from Mackie’s Westertown family farm, as the crow flies. The parlour is celebrating its third year of business this December.
As well as a wide range of ice cream, 19.2 serves coffee from local Aberdeen-based Caber Coffee and features two centrepiece chocolate taps – one white and one milk – an ever-flowing source of Mackie’s chocolate, melted for serving over its desserts.
