Sparkling Scoops: Savour The Season With Bonfire-Inspired Ice Cream
Bonfire Night is one of the most traditional and quintessentially British celebrations of the year, remembering a foiled plot to blow up the Houses of Parliament from way back in 1605, over 400 years ago. The celebration usually takes the form of a huge bonfire and fireworks display, and it is an essential part of the British cultural calendar. Families and friends get together, all huddled around the bonfire (it is November in the UK so usually on the nippy side) and watch the pyrotechnic displays going off all around.
Go Big On Toppings
Just like you’re piling firewood on a bonfire, stack up the toppings on top of your ice cream offerings. Think indulgent and seasonal, such as toasted marshmallows, crumbled biscuits and chocolate drizzles. A big range of toppings helps to broaden your menu offerings and lets customers personalise their orders. And with that in mind…
You could even take this one step further and create a DIY toppings station for your customers to get creative with their own choices. Offer a big choice of topping options, including toffee sauce, caramelised nuts, chocolate shavings and more, for a fun and interactive way to engage customers.
Hot And Cold
As mentioned above, November evenings in the UK are often chilly affairs and may not seem suited to ice cream. But this is no ordinary November evening, with the warmth of the bonfire enough to mean ice creams can be the perfect treat. For older customers (or with parent's permission), you might even want to think about adding some fireworks to the order with a sparkler or two safely placed in the ice cream. This is a great visual spectacle and a suitable way to mark the occasion.
The combination of real dairy ice cream, a choice of delicious and seasonal toppings, and some family-friendly options can be enough to turn Bonfire Night into the perfect time for an indulgent treat.
