Rum 'n' Raisin
Today I was so desperate for strawberry ice cream, that when I found Waitrose had none, I bought some Neapolitan, and scooped out the strawberry block. Despite the proliferation in ice cream brands over the last decade or so, it seems to me that the range of flavours available in the shops is still pretty poor. People in England seem to think that raspberry ripple amounts to an exotic flavour. Whenever I went on holiday as a kid to Devon or Cornwall, I would look forward to a Rum 'n' Raisin scoop. So why can't you get Rum 'n' Raisin ice cream from a Tesco or Waitrose now?
