Primary school children from across Brighton & Hove have been getting creative and inventing an all-new ice cream flavour for the summer.
The Great Brighton Ice Cream Contest launched in January 2014 and over 260 young people participated by drawing their perfect ice concoction.
A panel of judges including Seb Cole of Boho Gelato, Andrew Kay from the food festival, Analiese Doctrove from Rockinghorse, Shoshana Plail from ChildFriendlyBrighton.co.uk, Katharine Hale from South Downs National Park and Hanna Neter from Juice FM spent the afternoon at Hotel du Vin carefully considered the entries to choose five finalists that demonstrated imaginative flavours that would be popular with the public.
• Spicy White Whirl: white chocolate, lime and crushed chilli (Rowan Kingston of Balfour Primary)
• Chocolate Biscuit Caramel Crunch (Jack Tollerfield of Westdene Primary)
• Mango and Rhubarb (Celare Humma of Bilingual Primary School)
• Vanilla, Pretzel and Caramel Swirl (Gabriel Amicucci – Brown of St Bernadettes)
• Vanilla, Strawberry Jam, Peanut Butter and Toasted Breadcrumbs (Gabriel Winter of Middle Street)
The five flavours are now on-sale at Boho Gelato in Pool Valley, Brighton, and you can sample and buy until Thursday 17 April. The winning flavour will be the ice cream that sells most in that period, and the winner will be announced on the food festival’s free entry Live Food Show stage on Hove Lawns at 10.45am on Good Friday 18 April. Over the summer months you’ll be able to purchase the winning flavour from Boho Gelato with proceeds donated to Rockinghorse children’s charity.
