New Forest Ice Cream has introduced a new Honey & Fig flavour just in time for summer menus.
The new flavour comprises of a honey dairy base that is interlaced with real pieces of fig for a “sweet yet sophisticated” take on the classic pairing.
According to the company, Honey & Fig can be served alone or with a number of different desserts, including a French tarte au citron infused with blood orange.
Like the rest of the New Forest range of ice cream and sorbets, which includes over 40 flavours, the Honey & Fig variant is free from artificial colours and flavours and is produced in a nut-free facility. It is available in 4ltr/4.75ltr catering tubs.
New Forest Ice Cream’s director Christina Veal said: “When it comes to developing new flavours for our foodservice range, we love experimenting with new and exciting combinations that we know will really add something special to a final dish.
“Our Honey & Fig ice cream is sweet and creamy with a lovely texture from the chewy fig and is perfect for anyone who is creative in the kitchen. It can be served alongside desserts to add a new flavour dimension and bring the whole dish together!”
