Caroline’s Dairy Icecream


LOCAL ICECREAM PRODUCER scoops up even more Awards! Caroline’s Dairy is based in Sidlesham.

Gold winners in the 2016 National Ice Cream Competition and have gone on to get many awards and accolades.

We are all celebrating here after scooping a top award at this year’s National Ice Cream Competition in Harrogate for the
second year in a row!
We were awarded Gold in the Toffee Class for our Toffee & Honeycomb Ice Cream, which meant we once again took home
the much-coveted Silver Challenge Cup. On top of this, we also won a Diploma of Merit in the Dairy Ice Cream Artisan Class for our popular Double Dairy flavour, a Diploma of Merit in the Chocolate Class, a Diploma of Merit for our new Lime Cheesecake summer flavour and a merit for our Blackberry Fool in the Open Flavour Class.

The National Ice Cream Competition is run by The Ice Cream Alliance and is the only one of its kind in the UK judged by professionals in the industry so winning an award is a huge accolade!
The dairy itself produces its own milk for Marks and Spencers and the icecream side of the business was started by Caroline as almost more of a hobby to start with.
Although they take a tiny percentage of the milk which is produced each day the quality and variety of the flavours are unique in many cases and superb quality.
It is also great to know that it is locally produced with excellent husbandry for the animals too. It’s almost a guiltless pleasure! Plus, it has almost no added air and no unwanted ingredients – so it is more dense, more creamy, more luscious and better for you than other icecreams – it really does make you feel better!
The farm also opens up for OpenFarmWeekend – usually in June – so keep an eye out for that if you are staying with us at that time.

Scrumptious Summer Menu

The Summer Menu for the year which includes some exciting new flavours as well as a return of some of our favourites. The menu officially launches in April and will be available in restaurants and shops across the South East. Keep an eye open for our new adverts which will soon announce what we have on offer…
If you can’t wait until then, why not pop along to your nearest
Caroline’s Dairy stockist and get a tub of our award winning
Toffee and Honeycomb or Blackberry Fool Ice Cream –just to
tide you over!
The biggest challenge is what flavours you should try…
Some are seasonal –  as the icecream is handmade from ingredients which are as local as possible; others you can buy from various stockists locally.
Gayle’s favourite is currently Amarana Cherry!

The icecream isn’t cheap – but its organic, hand-made with love and care and come with local ingredients where possible. When you taste the quality you will agree it’s worth it and so much better for you than the airy dry-powder icecreams which are usually on offer.

Where to buy it!

All the local Southern Co-ops stock it – Selsey, East Wittering, Stockbridge, plus smaller distributers – eg the little shop at Hunston. Restaurants also stock many more flavours too – and turn them into delicious desserts too so keep an eye out if you are eating out! PLUS – there are icecream vans at Marine Gardens car park, Selsey – straight down the High Street and also by the Chichester Canal turn at Hunston.

Try, love, enjoy!
