“You could definitely eat more than a spoonful of this” was the verdict of the Judges when they awarded the 2009 New Zealand Ice Cream Supreme Award to Takapuna Beach Café & Store for their Licorice Gelato.

This Gelato, with the highest score overall, was described by the Judges as near to perfect with its delicate aniseed type flavour and smooth creamy texture. Not only did Takapuna Beach Café & Store win the Supreme Award and Gelato Best in Category for their Licorice Gelato, but they also won the Sorbet Best in Category for their Mango Sorbet.


CATEGORY WINNERS
- Standard Vanilla Ice Cream: Tip Top Vanilla Ice Cream 2L

- Standard Ice Cream with Inclusions: Tip Top Good Goody Gum Drops 2L

- Premium Vanilla Ice Cream: Deep South French Vanilla

- Premium Ice Cream: Limonata Cheesecake from Kiwi Ice Cream

- Creative Division: Creamy Chocolate & Raspberry with a Hit of Chilli Ice Cream from Tip Top

- Sorbet: Mango Sorbet from Takapuna Beach Cafe & Store

- Supreme Award: Licorice Gelato from Takapuna Beach Cafe & Store


What a frikkin' sweet(hur hur) idea! Although "licorice gelato" does sound particularly suspect to me. I like the sound of "Creamy Chocolate & Raspberry with a Hit of Chilli" though :p

any judges that give Good Goody Gum Drops an award need to be shot and the whole event needs to be rejudged, cause IMHO Good Goody Gum Drops is a large sign of bad taste.

but they didn't get it all wrong, Killinchy Gold Chocolate Fudge Brownie from Emerald Foods

Tasted a lot better than it sounds - the sweetness of the icecream balances the blue cheese flavour. Bit like mixing blue cheese with fruit paste.

Guess you've got to like stinky cheese first :)
