An ice cream business from Bedminster, Bristol has found an ingenious and delicious way to extend their menu for the autumn and winter months.
Vee Double Moo has been selling delicious softserve ice cream, sundaes and dairy-free options at Brandon Hill Park since July. Owner Bridget Pilkington loves trading at the pitch and so is reluctant to pack up for the winter – “I have done homemade hot chocolate, cupcakes and chocolate dipped pretzels at Christmas fairs for a couple of years but I wanted to find something different to add to Daisy the Van’s repertoire”. Bridget used her foodie contacts and having met with Churros Garcia is now proud to serve steaming hot churros with hot dipping chocolate.
Churros Garcia have been serving the festival and London market scene for a long time and owner Lesley is (at least!) a second generation churros maker. The Spanish doughnuts are now served by Vee Double Moo with original Spanish Valor chocolate, with or without cinnamon.
Says Bridget, “I’m so proud to be serving such a delicious and warming treat at the foot of Cabot Tower – it is an amazing place to work in the summer but also stunning in the autumn; just in time for lots of new visitors to Bristol to come and enjoy the views from Cabot Tower – and people who have lived here for years of course who often say they had forgotten what a great space it is.”
She goes on to say “It is a slight departure from the dairy nature of Moo’s usual menu but the hot dipping chocolate relies on good quality organic milk, and churros compliment all the other frozen treats and hot drinks on offer from the van”.
