July market – updates!

June 27, 2016

We are delighted to announce that Creamed Pops are launching at July’s Stirchley Community Market – with their outdoor ice cream cart! (Fingers and toes crossed for good weather!)

IMG_7755

Creamed make British, small-batch artisan ice cream on a stick, or as we like to call them, pops.

Natural ingredients, no artificial preservatives and fresh produce combine to create a delicious treat. Our pops are fast frozen, meaning our ice cream stays silky smooth, creamy and icicle-free. Some of our pops are then dipped in UK produced Pure Origin dark, milk or white chocolate and rolled in toppings such as salted crushed pistachio, freeze-dried strawberry, toasted almonds and nut brittle powder.

Based in Birmingham, Creamed use as many local producers as possible, and are always on the look-out for the best ingredients the West Midlands has to offer. You can find us at street food events, in local cafes and bars, as well as independent shops and delis across the city.

More info on their website at www.creamedpops.co.uk
