Frederick's Ice Cream

Ice cream is my favourite thing to eat.  I think I could live on it.  Well that's a slight exaggeration maybe, but it is definitely one of my all time favourite foods.

Just recently my daughter, Caroline, introduced me to a fantastic ice cream parlour called Frederick's.  Their ice cream is to die for!  They even have my favourite flavour, Turkish Delight, which I've only found before in the Lake District.  Inside that refrigerated glass display counter is goodness knows how many flavours of ice cream.  That's Caroline and Charlie sitting outside. There's also a seating area inside.

Charlie is like me, he loves ice cream too.

That cone is nearly as big as him!

In fact all three of my little treasures love ice cream.  This is George and Nicholas last summer, that's Charlie in the background.

William doesn't like ice cream as much as I do, it gives him a headache, but on Sunday last we needed to go to the Trafford Centre and Frederick's is right on its doorstep at the Chill Factore.  Needless to say we made a visit.  I tried marshmallow flavour this time, it was good too.  Happily Frederick's does a good latte so we had one of those as well.

So my simple pleasure this week has been the discovery of Frederick's and it has pleased me no end.

Linking to Dayle at A collection of This and That to see what others have found pleasure in this week.

TTFN,

Kathleen.

Turkish Delight 'anything' would make me happy !!
That looks like a terrific ice-cream parlour :-)
I usually choose Rum'n'Raisin when hubby buys me a cone, but I'd definitely try Turkish Delight!

I love ice cream when it is on top of apple pie or a brownie! :) But if I have to do a straight up cone, then definitely coffee or mint chocolate chip. yum! Best wishes, Tammy

I'm not a big fan of ice cream but that looks good. :) Looks like the kiddos were enjoying theirs.

Thanks for sharing.

Love icecream but there is no Frederics in Southern California!

A lovely post. I adore ice-cream, but mostly in winter months, which always sounds strange to some folks. I find it melts way too easily in summer.

Some of those cones are as big as the one eating it!

(thank you for the nice comment you left on my blog!)

Glass är gott! De strutarna ser verkligen goda ut! Fina bilder på dina barn. Önskar dig en skön dag!

I love ice cream. I'm not sure if it's the taste alone or the memory that I have of being taken to the ice cream stands when I was little. My dad loved the stuff so it was his idea of family outing, even though we lived on a tight budget.

You know, I don't think I realized that THAT was one of the reasons I love it so much until this post. When I saw your husband eating his cone, I had a memory of Dad.

Hmmm.

Thank you, friend. You just gave me an unexpected memory pleasure!!

People always look happy when eating ice cream. My kids are here for Mother's Day and last night we went to the local custard place for a treat...we had the heat blasting in the car to stay warm! Crazy!
