Minghella ice cream has the competition licked

MINGHELLA ice cream made on the Isle of Wight has scooped a spot in a national newspaper's top ten of Britain's best.

The award-winning family business, based in Wootton, had the competition licked when it was named at Number 2 by the Daily Telegraph, for its use of Isle of Wight milk, natural flavours and colours and ranges including dairy free, egg free and special ices for slimmers and people with diabetes.

The cool gourmet business, founded in 1950 by Eddie and Gloria Minghella, — the parents of Oscar-winning film director Anthony Minghella — is still run by the family today, with the addition of the couple's daughter Gioia Minghella.

In celebration of the being named a top ice cream maker, Gioia has named her personal favourite family ice cream flavours — Salty Caramel Fudge she described as 'indulgent', Strawberry Tart as 'scrummily retro' and the more sophisticated Chase the Lady, as an 'utterly delicious sorbet cocktail of mandarin, marmalade and vodka'.
