We made our own biscoff and caramel ice cream.
We also tasted a raspberry ripple ice cream in an oyster waffle that we had made earlier that day.
Everyone enjoyed mixing, whipping, and crunching up the ingredients.
We spoke about our favourite flavoured ice-creams, how times have changed and how there are so many more flavours to choose from these days.
