Boysenberry ice cream scoops award, again!

Written by 

Tip Top’s Boysenberry Ripple has taken out the supreme award at the New Zealand Ice Cream awards for the fourth time.

The Kiwi favourite first hit the freezers in the 1960’s and since then has fast become a regular at ice cream scoop parlours and in dessert bowls.  It has consistently been in one of the top selling tubs of ice cream since then.

It’s jammed packed with fresh fruit, with over 90,000 tonnes of sun ripened boysenberries from Nelson used in Tip Top’s Boysenberry Ripple and Boysenberry Trumpets, every year.

Tip Top Director Kim Ballinger says the combination of a great team and quality ingredients, including NZ fresh milk and cream, is a winning one. 

“We’re proud that Kiwis continue to love Boysenberry Ripple after more than 50 years. We reckon it brings together the best of NZ.

“Our ice cream contains great tasting fresh ingredients, and natural colours and flavours. It’s fantastic to see our efforts being recognised for award-winning taste!”

And while classic flavours like Boysenberry Ripple continue to stand the test of time, the team is working hard to come up with new flavours to tempt Kiwi taste buds. 

“We’re flat out testing a range of new varieties for next summer and we think New Zealanders will be as excited as we are about what’s in store.”

Tip Top also won the Best in Category and Gold for its Creamy Vanilla, and Goody Goody Gum Drops, Vanilla and Hokey Pokey were awarded gold medals

Dairy conversion - Otaki style

Near the Horowhenua town of Otaki, dairy conversion has taken on a whole new meaning. It’s not a case of converting sheep and beef farms to dairy farms, rather it’s a case of just converting old dairy sheds to country style tourist accommodation. Reporter Peter Burke visited two such conversions by two pretty special and creative women.
