Halloween treats on offer from Mackies
Visitors to a north-east ice-cream manufacturers store can get their hands on some chilling treats this spooky season.
Mackie’s of Scotland’s flagship ice cream parlour, Mackie’s 19.2, has revamped its menu this Halloween to serve up pumpkin waffles, black ice cream and some very creepy crepes.
The parlour is also making a seasonal pumpkin spiced latte – a cosy winter treat topped with whipped cream.
The black ice cream is a one-off blackcurrant and liquorice flavour, which is being made alongside another haunting flavour, blood orange sorbet.
Parlour manager at Mackie’s 19.2, Yvette Harrison, said: “Not only are these limited edition desserts incredibly tasty, they’re very visual too, making them a fun way to celebrate Halloween and take a picture.
“We love making fun recipes throughout the year and Halloween is another perfect occasion to get creative with the looks and flavours of our plates and scoops”
Mackie’s is well-known for its unique parlour creations, having created weird and wonderful flavours such as Haggis ice cream for Burn’s Night and Brussel Sprout ice cream for Christmas, for example.
The parlour is named 19.2 because it is located in the city’s Marischal Square - exactly 19.2 miles away from the family farm, near Inverurie, where all of Mackie’s ice cream and chocolate is made.
Their fourth generation family farm, Westertown, started producing ice cream in 1986 and still produce it all using fresh milk and cream from their own herds.
