Scottish artisan ice cream maker, Equi’s, and top confectionery manufacturer, Lees of Scotland, have teamed up to create the ultimate Scottish desserts to mark national ice cream month (July).
Featuring their most loved products, the iconic foodie brands have created a duo of indulgent puddings in this one-off collaboration and are inviting punters to give their creations a go.
Those with a sweet tooth will love their ‘Scottish Summer Piece’ featuring Equi’s multi-award-winning Double Vanilla ice cream sandwiched between two of Lees of Scotland’s famous melt-in-your-mouth Strawberry and White Chocolate Dipped Meringues, fresh locally-sourced Scottish strawberries and a sprinkle of freeze-dried raspberries.
The ‘Strawberry Bomb’ is a berry explosion with luxurious Equi’s Strictly Strawberry vegan ice cream, Lees of Scotland creamy Snowballs, and their sensational mini Jam Teacakes for added texture and bite, along with a drizzle of raspberry sauce.
The Scottish brands are also offering up a prize on their social media where you can win these two special desserts on their Instagram or Facebook - follow @equisicecream and @leesofscot, to mark National Ice Cream Day on 18th July. Simply follow both brands for your chance to win ice cream goodies and sweet treats.
Equi’s, the current UK ice cream champions, are known for creating irresistible artisan ice cream using high-quality ingredients from local Scottish dairy farms, and secret family recipes that have been passed down through four generations.
Chris Law, head of marketing at Equi’s Ice Cream explains:
“We love Lees’ products and as we’re all spending more time at home we thought we’d create some recipes for people to get behind this summer.
“You can’t beat a jammy teacake and we’ve elevated that snack to create the ultimate Scottish dessert with our award-winning ice cream. The proof is in the pudding. Give it a try at home - you won’t be disappointed!”
Lees of Scotland CEO, Clive Miquel, said:
“With temperatures soaring it’s great to partner with a Scottish ice cream favourite like Equi’s and showcase the many ways you can enjoy a Lees of Scotland Snowball, Teacake or Meringue.
“We hope families come together this summer and try these tasty desserts.”
