One lucky person is going to win their very own liquid nitrogen ice cream parlour this Christmas. Award winning ice cream entrepreneur Charlie Francis has created the UK’s first portable nitro ice cream parlour and he’s giving himself, his parlour and mega loads of ice cream away for free for one incredible day of ice cream indulgent deliciousness this Christmas. Yum.
To enter, simply follow @lickdelicious on twitter and tweet with the hashtag #LickMeImDelicious. Charlie will then travel to the winner’s house on a day of their choice and make incredible ice cream for them and 20 of their friends. The competition winner will be announced at midnight on Friday, December 23rd.
Charlie says, “Basically I’ll turn up in the morning, set up my machine and make you ice cream all day until you explode. I’ll make Christmas pudding ice cream, praline pecan pie, dark port and Stilton, raspberry mojito ice cream and lots of other tasty things. Then we’ll experiment with what you’ve got in your kitchen cupboards. The competition is open to the whole of the UK. Please don’t win if you live in Scotland – that’s a long way away.”
Charlie’s business, Lick Me I’m Delicious, was the South West Winner of Barclays Take One Small Step award earlier this year. His ice cream contraption uses a liquid nitrogen injection system to churn two custom flavours for up to 500 guests fresh in front of their eyes. The machine is set up in an hour by ninja ice cream warriors and makes fresh ice cream in under a minute
“I grew up on an ice cream farm in South Wales, my father is an ice cream maker and my mother is a fantastic baker. I wanted a way of combining these two skills to create delicious frozen creations, mixing ice cream with home made tasty confectionary bakery goodness and churning the whole thing with liquid nitrogen. So the ice cream contraption was born.”
Charlie’s Ice Cream contraption can be booked for events, weddings and cool parties via his website;
