Move over florals - ice cream is the new summer fashion trend and of course, we had to get involved! We have spotted a few great options, if like us, you fancy rocking the ice cream prints and making a real statement this season.

Very reminiscent of the retro 50’s and taking pastels to a whole new level, ice cream has been making its way into fashion quite  a lot recently. The cute illustrations and fun colours are perfect for summer and sure to brighten up the day whether the sun is shining or not!

Muted and dusted colours go hand in hand with ice cream so if you’re a fan of pastels, this trend will be right up your street. Baby pinks, blues, mint and yellows all work really well with ice cream patterns and prints, instantly adding a dash of the 50’s vintage scene. What could be better than looking like you’ve just come from a diner full of bubble gum dresses, milkshakes and sundaes topped with glacé cherries?

There are many different designs on the high street to suit everyone’s individual style; the pale blue off the shoulder dress from ASOS is colourful and vibrant choice. Alternatively, the navy blouses from River Island & Zara are a little bit more sophisticated and work appropriate, incorporating the trend in a more subtle manner.

With it being the peak of summer and ice cream being more fashionable than ever, we have picked a few of our favourite pieces that feature the ice cream trend! Let’s face it; wearing ice cream is almost as good as eating it…

Wishing you a very happy National Ice Cream Month from all of the team here at New Forest Ice Cream! It probably isn’t a surprise that this is our favourite time of year and of course our favourite month. The summer is the perfect opportunity to indulge in the delicious frozen delight even more than usual. It makes us very happy that there is an entire month dedicated to doing just that.

In 1984 President Ronald Reagan designated July as National Ice Cream Month and the third Sunday of the month as National Ice Cream Day. This means that National Ice Cream Day will be celebrated on 16th July this year, not long to wait!  What better way to celebrate than to treat yourself to a scoop or two of your favourite New Forest Ice Cream?

As its National Ice Cream month, we thought we would share some interesting facts about New Forest Ice Cream. After 37 years in the industry we certainly have some to share…

·    New Forest Ice Cream was founded in Lymington in 1983. 34 years of making delic ious ice cream and sorbet!

·    We remain a family run business, with directors Christina Veal and Nicola Jenman being twin daughters of the founders, Sue & Lawrie Jenman, along with cousin, David Bishop who is Production Director.

·    Our ice creams and sorbets have won exclusive ‘Great Taste Award Gold Stars’ every year since 2012!

·    Our Vanilla stays at No.1 position even after 34 years with Salted Caramel coming in close behind.

·    During a sunny National Ice Cream month we can produce 4000 litres of ice cream every hour!

Every day is National Ice Cream day for us, so make the most of the sunshine this weekend and head down to the New Forest Ice Cream parlour to get in plenty of practice before the 16th! We have over 20 flavours of ice cream and sorbets to pick and choose from, so you’re sure to be a connoisseur by the end of the month.
