Today’s Superb waffle: I couldn’t make my mind up: Bakewell Pudding or Blackcurrant Cheesecake….so I had a scoop of each!

This link was sent to a car chat group I am on (NBC)…
It in the top 20 places in victoria

Some of you may know I like the occasional ice cream…. Here are some I have enjoyed over the years…..
The FIRST of 2020….a magnificent large 99 waffle,generously dribbled with choc sauce, and bought from a van as we walked around the Longshaw Estate. Only £3, which was a good deal. Pictured are the cone before starting to lick, and the last mouthful.I wish I had recorded the time taken to scoff it.

and me scoffing!
At Another Place:

Over the last few days, mainly at Chatsworth Country Fair…

this is one of my favourites: at Curborough, a choc nut dipped waffle with flake..

At Oundle, though one was in Peterborough, over the last few days.:
At Chesterfield car Fest, one from local Ice Cream experts Fredericks, a waffle, generously filled, with a dollop of choc sauce and a flake.

Sunday 7th July, at Ridgeway Car Show, two Whippies, first with marshamallow dip (£2) next a whippy with an Oreo dip. Only £1.50.
Saturday 6th July at Coal Aston, two single cones with flakes, £3 EACH!

At the Sheffield Steam Gala, a mega 3 or 4 scoop waffle, with nut dip, choc sauce and a flake. Only £2 too!

At the Hope Car Show, 24th June:

Today, at Curborough..

Today, at the Glossop Car Show, a £2.20 Whippy waffle, and later, a £1.20 Flake cone bought from the park shop.



A home-made invention…tub cone, with ice cream topped with assorted mixed nuts and fruit.

At the Curburgring today, thanks to Rob Heap for taking the pic of me and a waffle cone with flake and sprinkles.

In Oundle at the weekend….

Two in Lincoln today, one waffle was a Unicorn waffle!

At Oundle today, a Pistachio waffle cone. 10 out of 10 for this one!

At the MSCC Taster Day at the Curburgring…a superb waffle cone, with a flake, nut dip and chocolate sauce. Brill!

And here it is again, along with future daughter in law Rach, with her choice of waffle cone.

Enjoyed at the December Tormog noggin:

Went to Crich Tramway Museum before it closed for winter, and enjoyed a two scoop rhubarb and custard in a waffle.

Later, at the Tormog Noggin at the Crispin, I had a superb toffee and caramel ice cream for pudding!

Just the one ice cream at the Yorkshire Wildlife Park: a medium cornet, with flake and choc sauce. SatNag had the same, minus the cornet, but in a tub. Sad to say, but fairly typical of cornets, leaked when I was only halfway down it.

Ice creams over the three days of the Chatsworth weekend, including one at Curborough:
First: a Banoffee Waffle

followed by a Rum and Raisin waffle

Then, a Whippy, though in a leaky cone

Double Vanilla

Whippy Cone, being handed over by the maker!

Whippy, with choc sauce, nut dip and flake at Curborough

finishing the 3 day event, back at Chatsworth with a whippy and flake.

This was a vanilla and chocolate medium waffle bought for 5 euros at Le Mans. It was very nice.

So sad to see: a fallen ice cream, this one melting slowy away at the Penistone showground. Very sad.

a Whippy plus flake at Clumber Park

Second: two scoop Bradwells, from Sheffield Winter Gardens, one scoop banana and toffee, the other scoop chocolate.

At the Crispin, Great Longstone only yesterday…

May 13th, Cannock Chase, a rather nice single scoop chocolate waffle cone. With Jane, James and Rach.

This is a new journalistic idea: the Life of a Cone. The cone in question was a single scoop waffle, filled with Eton Mess ice cream,( a first for me.) The story shows how the cone was devoured while walking around the exhibits at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park today. Enjoy.

At Barrow Hill Roundhouse, I have to admit to having three today, all waffles, small though, not large. First, a chocolate, then a plain, but with a flake, then another chocolate.I had parked my Mog quite close to the van…


This weekend’s ice creams: a waffle cone with flake and nut sprinkle bought from a van by Formby bowling green was a leaker, despite wedging the pointy bit against my fimger, but boy, did the choc dipped waffle cone, with flake and choc sauce bought from the van at ‘Another Place’ make up for it….

The weekend before, we had been to Chatsworth Country Fair, where a single cone bought from a van was, at £2.50 on the expensive side, especially for a small single cone. However, those bought from Chatsworth’s own outlet were waffle cones, and over the couple of days, I enjoyed toffee, banana and chocolate ones.

Wandering around Sheffield city centre the other day, bought this from a van on Fargate. Waffle, whippy, flake and choc sauce.

sorry about the sideways pic

At Carsington Water, I enjoyed a superb waffle cone, a two scooper, one generous butterscotch, the other rocky road. You really cannot better a two scoop waffle cone. Unless it is a three scoop, of course.

We went recently on Scotland’s NC500, and I have enjoyed some rather nice ones… they are the last ones in the gallery… silly website did not work how I wanted it to. Scroll down!

Drive it Day, I enjoyed a chocolate waffle cone filled with malteser and rum ‘n raisin.

However, the first of two Cornettos today broke as I unwrapped it, however the subsequent one was fine.

At Curborough Sprint Course, for the MSCC  Taster day, a rather nice waffle cone,with chocolate sauce, and nut sprinkles. Lovely!

And just a week later, at a private track session..

And at Bromyard Speed Festival… a bubble gum flavoured cone, then a caramel cornetto…

At Nottingam University’s Lakeside, I had this little beauty… a chocolate waffle cone, with chocolate squirty, and a nut sprinkle. Best ice cream of the week.


This was today’s, 22nd March, a Cornetto, at Wollaton Hall:

And in Nottingham city centre, today 24th March, a bargain 50p cornetto.

Here are some more, though not all eaten at the same time. See if you can guess where the pics were taken.

I hope you have enjoyed looking at the photos. My favourite, should you want to buy one for me, is in a chocolate-dipped waffle cone, as long as the pointy bit does not drip melted ice cream over me.
