The New Zealand Icecream Awards took place this week and there were a few surprises!

With the weather heating up as we head into summer, this might give you a good list of new icecreams to try out over thenext few months.

"One of the objectives of the Awards is to raise the overall industry standard and New Zealand made ice cream has been of world-class quality for many years. This year the gelato and sorbet were excellent, and also truly world-class." a spokesperson for the awards said.

"Another trend was the increase in savoury flavours this year.... Also noticeable was an increase in plant-based and low-fat options over last year’s entries."
