Holiday memory

The first joy is a glimpse of the menu, when you realise there are so many different flavours to choose from. What will it be today: chocolate, raspberry ripple, toffee banana or something more unusual like blackberry and apple crumble or liquorice?  Hard to pick - they all look so delectable.
Even when you know the one you want there is still the decision of how to have it served. Will it be an old-fashioned cornet, chocolate-covered cone, wafer, or an oyster? Decisions decisions! It used to be so simple. It was vanilla in a cone: the only difficulty was whether to have a flake in it, and that was usually determined by the cost. Ice cream is much more fun now.
I’ll have Turkish delight, please, in a tub.

PS. I'd like to give an honourable mention to Cadwalader's liquorice and blackcurrant flavour. It's just that I didn't take a photo of that! This is Glaslyn ices at Beddgelert
