In breaking Rugby World Cup news: the All Blacks are vegan! Or at least their Giapo alter-ego is: the always-wonderful cocoa sorbet has been rebranded as All Black just in time to celebrate the team’s first victory last night.
I had this instead, yesterday: a cup of kiwifruit and pistachio sorbet. Both were lovely; the pistachio is much improved since the first time it appeared: creamier and with a more complex flavour.
I don’t actually watch rugby, but the enthusiasm in Auckland right now is infectious. The weather has been beautiful, too – perfect for frozen treats. As well as Giapo, the boys from Nice Blocks have been making appearances around town – follow their Facebook page for tips on where to find them.
