Having read an article about a New York ice cream parlour launching a black Ice Cream, Matt Davis, our very own Operations Manager, took it upon himself to make Rossi the first known UK Ice Cream manufacturers to produce the extraordinary creation. What followed was not only the creation of an astonishing jet black ice cream but a jet black ice cream that kept our wonderful vanilla taste.
Not only did it get the people of Southend and Essex talking, but the country! With the European Dairy Reporter even covering the story:
On Saturday 30th July, the limited edition ice cream was available in 4 selected outlets along Southend sea front, including Mandy’s Ices, Rossi at The Arches, Rossi Parlour and Rossi Pier Hill. The Rossi Team, along with Rossi Bear himself, hit to the streets to capture the incredible reactions of anyone eager enough to try it, with many trying to get their heads around the contrast of the jet-black appearance but the creamy vanilla taste of our classic Rossi Ice Cream.
The day was a huge success leaving many black tongues wandering the sea front of Southend. We may have said we won’t be producing any more in the future but you never know what other wonderful creations we may have up our sleeves.
