Who doesn’t love ice cream? We have the perfect weather for it at the moment. When Fiona from Marks Communications invited me to a New Zealand Natural ice cream tasting I immediately said yes. Work was really busy the day of the tasting and I just couldn’t make it. Lucky enough I was asked to pick up a tub of the new flavour.
New Zealand Natural has launched Golden Manuka Honey as a new flavour for 2010.
What is Manuka Honey? Manuka honey is made by bees that feed on the flowers of the Manuka or Kanuka bush in New Zealand. This incredible honey is rich in antioxidants and is frequently used to heal coughs and colds.
Apart from Manuka Honey the ice cream also has a hint of Golden Kiwi fruit. Golden Kiwi fruit is one of my favourite fruits. I like them better than the normal Kiwi fruit which I find to tart.
I paired the ice cream with a spice ginger cookie. It was the perfect match. Rich spicy ginger cookies with a sweet and fruity ice cream.
The ice cream itself only has a subtle flavour of the Golden Kiwi. It had a sweetness that was really unique. Tahlia from work described it as a “Ribbons of Manuka Honey woven through layers of buttery ice cream.
For a limited time, New Zealand Natural are offering customers a FREE scoop with any purchase of a regular ice cream to allow people to try the delicious new flavour. Head on down to a New Zealand Natural near you to taste the new flavour. I'm sure you will love it.
