New Forest Ice Cream production facilities were handed over to eight BBC South Today presenters on Saturday, as they took part in a Pudsey Challenge.
After being split into two teams by Sally Taylor (South Today’s very own Alan Sugar), the eight presenters along with film crews, spent all of Saturday at the New Forest facilities working with production manager Dave Bishop and his team, to create two delicious Pudsey inspired flavours.
Sunday saw the two teams go in separate directions as Reham Khan, Joe Campbell, Sarah Farmer and Tom Hepworth spent the day at West Quays Shopping Centre in Southampton and Playzone in Portsmouth, whilst Peter Henley, Laura Trant, Catharina Moh and Roger Finn took a similar approach as they visited Gun Wharf Quays in Portsmouth.
Christina Veal, Director at New Forest Ice Cream, was extremely impressed with both teams’ creations:
“The standard of both teams special Pudsey ice cream was very high indeed and was unsurprisingly popular with shoppers at both locations. Who knows, we may even get some of the presenters back in to help with our flavour development process!”
To discover which team was victorious in the boardroom, and which was fired to the local café, make sure you watch South Today on the 16th, 17th and 18th November when all will be revealed.

As British Summer time gets into full swing and the school holidays approach, New Forest Ice Cream has launched a brand new addition to their already extensive range. Bubble Gum flavour ice cream is set to be the hit of the summer with both children, and those of a slightly older generation, enjoying the great taste and reminiscing about those 'good old days'.
As with all New Forest Ice Cream, the new Bubble Gum flavour has been developed in-house to exacting standards with every ingredient carefully chosen to get the very best flavour.
Christina Veal, Director at New Forest Ice Cream is delighted by the success so far: “We are extremely proud of our recipe development process and this new bubble gum flavour is certainly no exception. It is a great flavour and perfect for this time of year. We are delighted with its success already, even though we have only been selling the product for a few weeks. It is a flavour that will brighten up any ice cream menu and not only because it is blue! It is very popular with the children due to its colour and sweet taste, but it also makes a great addition to any ice cream menu.”
New Forest Ice Cream is also supporting it latest flavour by introducing its very own character to accompany the flavour. Jack the 'Bubble Gum Kid’ will support the sales of the ice cream and can be found on the website and on Point of Sale.
Perfect Peter would NOT approve. Six year-old Max Sadiku has created a simply horrid ice-cream flavour for New Forest Ice Cream – and what’s more, Max thinks it is rather delicious!
Max from Twickenham is the proud winner of a nationwide competition held by New Forest Ice Cream, based in Lymington. The competition was promoted on the Ice Cream Dream Horrid Henry DVD and asked children to come up with a flavour that Horrid Henry would enjoy.
The winning flavour was suitably obnoxious – Max’s dream of a Roast Dinner ice cream was created by Sue Jenman and her team at New Forest Ice Cream and consisted of a large Yorkshire pudding base filled with carrots, broccoli, peas, roast potatoes and sprouts. “It’s a bit strange,” said Max when he tasted it. “But I’ll have some more please!”
Luckily, part of Max’s prize was to have a tour of the ice cream factory and then create his own, more conventional ice cream using sweets, sauces and choc chips which was packed and delivered to his house a couple of days later.
Christina Veal, Director at New Forest Ice Cream, was delighted to be part of such a fun project, whilst helping to make a six year olds dream come true:
“Our team of developers and tasters are continually looking at new flavours and creations, but even they had never thought about mixing the delights of ice cream with the flavours and ingredients of a roast dinner,” she said. “ It does appear to be an acquired taste – I’m not sure it is going to catch on but it is interesting, and luckily Max thought it was good!”
In addition to overseeing his own creation and visiting the production site, Max also received a selection of Horrid Henry goodies, had a walk around the large freezers and sat in a lorry for the first time. Max will also receive a delivery of ice cream each month, for the next year.
The contest was run in association with New Forest Ice Cream, Abbey Media and Novel Entertainment, creators of the Horrid Henry series.
