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!
We 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.
I 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.
The 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!
