"The best Ice Cream I've ever tasted"

Jean Christophe Novelli

"If there's an Ice Cream heaven - we found it in Hadley's"

Judging panel 2011 Essex Food & Drink Awards

 

Another great year as Handmade by Hadley's ice cream wins another 12 great taste awards, including a three star award for our Raspberry icecream

The Great Taste Awards are billed as the Oscars by Foodies. We've managed to scoop a few more this year!

One gold star is classed as "close to perfect".  Two gold stars "faultless" and three  stars "wow, you must taste this!"

The Great Taste Awards are organised each year by the Guild of Fine Food, and this year there were 10,000 entries.  Each category is 'blind tasted' by a panel 16 judges who follow a strict marking criteria.

Of all the UK’s food award schemes, the Great Taste Awards is the most important. Completely independent and uncompromisingly rigorous, it is trusted by retailers, buyers and consumers. Great Taste success is to speciality food and drink what Michelin is to fine dining.
