One lucky Chester Zoo competition winner and her family travelled over 150 miles last week to see her very own Cheshire Farm Ice Cream flavour being sold at the zoo.
Isobel Stevens from Barry in South Wales entered the competition, which invited children of all ages to step into the role of flavour guru. Each entrant was in with a chance to have their own zoo themed ice cream flavour made into Real Dairy Ice Cream and sold in the brand new Fountain Ice Cream Parlour at Chester Zoo, which stocks Cheshire Farm Ice Cream.
Judged by Ice Cream Farm director, Jonathan Fell, and Chester Zoo catering general manager, Sue Clews, Isobel fought off tough competition from hundreds of entries, with her winning flavour ‘Tiger Temptation’. The ice cream consisted of a mixture of vanilla, chocolate and honeycomb pieces that successfully resembled tiger stripes.
Isobel and her family visited the zoo last week for a fantastic day out. Her father Mark commented: “Isobel had a lovely time. It wouldn’t have been a zoo we would have normally had the chance to visit due to the distance to travel but with the added excitement of Isobel’s ice cream creation it made the trip extra special. The ice cream was delicious and Isobel was beaming, amazed at how similar it was to her original design. Hats off to Cheshire Farm Ice Cream!”
