This week marks the sad loss of my most favourite ice cream. Goody Goody Gum Drops! Yes, it will still be available in rolling shops but the 2 ltr has been removed from the shelves.

So who invented GGGD? The flavour was apparently invented 25 years ago by Murray Taylor, Tip Tops’ technical general manager. The iconic bubblegum-flavoured ice cream with those Gumdrop candies makes for a sweet treat. Vanilla Ice-cream

So this week I will show you all how to make a basic vanilla ice cream without a churn. And then you can add in maybe a touch of green / blue food colouring and drop in some wine gums for a chewy little sweet treat.

I will miss you Goody Goody Gum Drops.

Whilst this is happening, beat egg yolks in a mixer till pale. Carefully and slowly! pour in the sugar mixer when it hits 120 degrees.

Continue to beat until the mixture cools down slightly.

Whisk the cream to VERY soft peaks before folding through the vanilla paste and then the egg yolk mixture.
