Di Meo’s Delaval Ices, Whitley Bay

image

Make no mistake, we love ice cream! It doesn’t appear that a week goes by without a trip to the beach or a visit to a new dessert parlour graces the Canny Food pages. Recently we reviewed the newly opened Creams in Newcastle and I sampled their fantastic Bubblegum Sundae. I was doing a bit of blog research and found out there was a local business that had recently scooped an award for their version of my favourite flavour – Di Meo’s in Whitley Bay. I knew we had to visit!

imageWe didn’t sit inside as it was super busy on the day we ventured to Whitley Bay. It was lovely and sunny, so typically the whole of the North East had decamped to the seaside! It was so hard to choose as there were so many lovely flavours.

imageMr. Canny had Salted Caramel in a sugar cone. He used to be a cornet man, but I’ve converted him.

imageI chose a tub so I could try a couple of different flavours. I eschewed my beloved Bubblegum and decided upon a scoop of their Toblerone, and chose the Pooh Bear honeycomb to go with it. I thought the two flavours would work well together and I wasn’t wrong. At £5 for the 2 it was more than reasonable for such good quality ice cream.

imageThe little branded wafer that each and every ice cream is served with is so cute and delicious. The array of flavours available should please everyone, and I only wished I had more of an appetite for second helpings. With over 100 years of history and a shelf full of trophies it’s easy to see why Di Meo’s is so popular. The cafe offers crepes and other American style desserts, alongside Italian treats like Cannoli. You can read about their Nutella Waffles here. We’ll be taking Jnr back on our return visit!

Thanks for reading,

    I tried their pistachio flavour at Boiler shop steamer and it was incredible! Have you tried Cresecent Cafe in Seaton Deleval’s original ice cream (where Di Meo’s originated from)? It’s heavenly!

      It would be a bit of a trek for us, but probably worth it 🙂

      Not great for my waistline, but that’s the perils of food blogging 🙂

    Di Meos is nice but you have to try Arrighi’s at the Crescent Cafe in Seaton Deleval, that’s the proper stuff! Doubt you’ll find bubblegum as its all natural flavours but everything I’ve tried there is incredible.

    We’re lucky enough to live on the same road as this lush ice cream parlour… the queues for this place on a sunny day are insane but worth it. They’ve just opened up in the little wooden hut on the beach in front of Spanish City so you can get your fix down there too now 🙂

    I love their salted caramel. We found them at the Jesmond Food festival and when we went to the bus rally in Whitley Bay I dragged hubby and son along to try and ice cream. They loved them as well
