No matter where you are in the world, nothing beats a warm sunny day with a refreshing soft serve ice cream, or a frozen yoghurt. In Brisbane, Australia we don't get many really cold days over winter, and our cold season only lasts a few months. But parts of Australia can get quite chilly, with snow and low temperatures right through until September. It really is a land of extremes. If you're down under and reading this stay warm until spring!
New Zealand is known for its sheep, but have you ever wondered how many cows there are as well? As we source our dairy from both New Zealand and Australia it certainly is of interest to us. We want to know that we are getting the best product from fully audited farms and compliant facilities. New Zealand is beautiful place, clean and green for both cows and people - we highly recommend a visit to see for yourself.

With cooler weather beginning to take hold down under, there is nothing nicer than being able to get yourself a great winter warmer. For comfort food you can't go past a cheesey fondue. Our cheese sauce mix makes a wonderful fondue base. Add a dash of white wine, a little paprika or some herbs, and you have the perfect night in or out. Great for entertaining friends or something more cosy.
When it comes to great tastes we think Asia is a great place for inspiration. We are head over heels in love with our new Milk Tea soft serve ice cream flavour. Just the thing to keep the heat away, and treat yourself at the same time.
There's nothing like a long, ice-cold drink on a steaming hot day. Here in Brisbane, Australia we know all about long, hot summers, and this one has been a scorcher so far.
Did you know that our soft serve ice-cream and frozen yoghurt powder can be used to create thick shakes and flurries? And that's fine if you have an ice cream machine. But if you don't it can still be used as a base to make iced coffees and chocolates, slushies and all manner of great summer cool downs. Ask us how today!
We want to give a big shout out to the wonderful team at Bloom Asia who train and empower girls to break free from the past, and have hope for the future.
We are proud to be supporters of their wonderful work and hope you will look them up some time to encourage them in their work, at bloomasia.org/.
Loaded shakes are the latest food trend that we heartily approve of. Take some of our soft serve ice cream mix, a dash of milk, some thick gooey syrup and your favourite flavouring, and let the fun begin! We are amazed at how creative people can be, although we're not sure the doctor would approve. Well, perhaps just this one time!

We are totally in love with this new instant dessert range, that looks like panna cotta, tastes like a dream, and can be presented in a thousand and one ways. It can be layered, combined, used in cakes and tarts, and can make the filling of cheese cakes. The only limit is your creativity and imagination.
