Gooseberry and Elderflower, Blackberry, Lemon, Raspberry and Strawberry flavours.  The Lemon and Blackberry were tart and refreshing, ideal with a crumble I think.

The other flavours were smooth and creamy but without the cream.  These were tasty on their own but would be good for a smoothie.

The ices went down very well with even the cats having a sniff (they love the smell of real strawberries), so cat approved too!

 The Story behind the development

Belhaven Fruit Farm blended home-grown Scottish fruit with an authentic Italian recipe to create a unique, luxuriously creamy dessert as healthy and tasty as real fruit.

The IceDelight story began back in 2007, when a spectacular summer left Belhaven Fruit Farm with bumper crops of fruit. They froze some of the berries and later, during the quiet winter months,  set out to produce something new and unique with this surplus.  A fruit ice was perfected after visiting Tuscany, and in 2010 the brand; ‘IceDelight’ was launched , the fruity, fat-free iced dessert.

Researchers from Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh asked us if they could study the health benefits to be had from eating IceDelight. The results were startling – the product kept all the vitamin and antioxidant properties of the real fruit and could even be counted as one of your ‘five-a-day’.
