We are delighted that Mackie's Traditional ice cream has been awarded not one, but two gold stars in this year's Great Taste Awards. The unmistakable black & gold Great Taste label is a signpost to the best tasting products, carefully assessed in an independent judging process. It's not about smart packaging or clever marketing - it's all about taste - and great taste is surely what's most important!
We started with Traditional ice cream over 30 years ago - and we still use our original recipe - using fresh whole milk & cream to create a deliciously smooth & creamy ice cream - with no added flavour - not ever vanilla. Here's an example of what the judges had to say..."On tasting, it is velvety & creamy. The simplicity is gorgeous" and "We love the way this melts on the palate and leaves simply creamy milk". We cannot ask for much better, and hope you'll agree when you get your next tub of Traditional!
