Return of the Arctic Roll
« on: November 18, 2009, 22:57 »
Production of Arctic Roll, the retro ice cream dessert, was halted in 1997, but in 2008, Birds Eye chose to revive the brand because the recession is fuelling a demand for comfort food.

Business Correspondent Ian Reeve went to the north Yorkshire factory that is making nine million of them a year.

Not I. Mrs Clive has made Baked Alaska which I think is very clever.

Nor I.  Cakes and sweet stuff are an absolute rarity chez nous because they go stale before we can eat them.  Mind, if you portion Arctic roll and freeze it... hmmm... food for thought.

I do have an ice cream making machine. My favourite flavour has to be whisky & ginger, served with Creole bread pudding.

My Tefal Actifry finally arrived today, so I can have decent chips again.   :woot:

I feel like throwing Blancmange at them:

You keep me running round and round
Well, that's alright with me
Up and down, I'm up the wall, I'm up the bloody tree
