The combination seemed an obvious one to try, strawberries have long been linked to Valentine’s Day, with perfect little red heart shaped forms, they were said to be the symbol of Venus, the Goddess of love. And chocolate has been used as an aphrodisiac for thousands of years and has more recently been proven to make us feel happier. When the two are put together the flavour is heavenly and the texture really interesting and complex.
“This delicately flavoured ice cream is made using strawberries grown locally in Kent and rich, dark Belgian chocolate. Chocolate and Strawberry Ice Cream has a rich indulgent creamy texture with chunks of real strawberry pieces and chips of chocolate to give a really luxurious taste sensation for your Valentine.” Says Sally Newall, Managing Director of Simply Ice Cream.
