#Blogtober16 Day 19 - Favourite Foods



Today's prompt was favourite foods, and as you might be able to tell from the picture, my favourite food is ice cream! There's the Cheshire Ice Cream Farm not far from me and they sell the most tantalising flavours! They sell over 50 different flavours, including sorbets. My recommended combination is Cointreau and Baileys but don't have one if you are driving, there's a fair old punch of alcohol in there! Another personal favourite is the liquorice and blackcurrent flavour. However liquorice is like marmite - you either love it or hate it.

Some more popular flavours include peanut, Ferrero Rocher, rhubarb and custard, stem ginger and turkish delight.

Not only do they sell the most yummy ice cream ever (and at this time of year sometimes that includes mince pie flavour), there is a great range of activities for kids. One activity that is fantastic for younger kids and those with sensory needs is the Honeycomb Canyon. It's a massive indoor sand and water pit. But don't forget to bring a change of clothes!


There's lots of other activities to explore as well, including a small farm with lots of different animals to meet! Although my children much prefer sitting on the old tractors and pretending to drive them.

The highlight of the Ice Cream Farm is the Ice Cream tree which sprays 'snow' at hourly intervals - great fun!

Entrance is free but some of the activities have a cost, which is currently £3.50 per child. However they sell play passes which are great value and can bring the cost of each activity down to £1.

It does get busy and for some of the activities, like the JCB diggers, it is better to book a slot in advance. However it's a great afternoon out and sometimes we sneak off without the children just for the ice cream!!!!

So that's my favourite food and my favourite place to get it from - what's yours?
