A new pop-up in Croyde is hoping a new food trend of ‘stir fried ice-cream’ will take off in North Devon.
The sweet treat – otherwise known as ice-cream rolls – is rolled-up ice-cream made on the spot, and originates from Thailand.
The food craze is big in cities and now Harry Simpson, from Barnstaple and Scott Burgess, from Braunton, have decided to bring it to North Devon.
The entrepreneurial pair saw the idea on Instagram and decided to give it a go – and so far it’s had a great response.
Little Spoon Ice Cream Co now has a pop-up running every day outside of The Stores in Croyde this summer.
They will also be exhibiting at North Devon Food Fest and are offering catering for weddings.
Harry said: “Basically the plate is -20’C and you pour the ice-cream mix onto it as well as the fresh ingredients.”
The pair use paddles to dice the ingredients into the cream as it freezes, spreading it out thinly before rolling it up.
Harry added: “We saw the idea on Instagram; I was in a job I didn’t like that much and Scott had just finished uni so we thought screw it, let’s do it and see what happens.”
Find Little Spoon Ice Cream Co outside The Stores in Croyde village, daily during the summer holidays.
