London’s Newest Dessert Trend Has Arrived in Shoreditch


● T’s Fried Scoop, fried ice cream desserts, arrived in Brick Lane, East London on 25th July
● The dessert craze is unlike anything tasted before in the UK
● T’s Fried Scoop is fried ice cream, inspired by a blend of Mexican and Japanese desserts

On Saturday 25th July, the UK’s newest dessert craze arrived to the Truman Brewery Upmarket, Shoreditch. (91 Brick Lane, E1 6QL)
The dessert trend is fried ice cream but it’s unlike anything England has ever seen before. The ice cream is inspired by a blend of Mexican and Japanese desserts. The ‘fried scoop’ is a combination of hot and cold desserts in one. The deep fried ice cream has an outer cookie-dough shell that is rolled in breadcrumbs that form a crispy layer but can also be covered in either cornflakes or Oreos. The founder describes it as “a hot, fried crust, coated in breadcrumbs, cornflakes or Oreos, wrapped around a decadent ice cream”.

The fried ice cream enthusiast and founder, Natasha, commented, “When I first tried fried ice cream, I was amazed! It was unlike anything I’d had before. I became so obsessed that I began practising and practising, using lots of methods from various cultures. This is why T’s Fried Scoop is so unique, because we’re a blend of so many different methods!”
The dessert maker is committed to making sure their desserts are inclusive, which is why T’s Fried Scoop has plenty of options, with their Matcha Ice cream being Vegan, and some toppings being Gluten free, there is something for everyone. The desserts are entirely vegetarian and
kosher, and Natasha is busy working on an entirely Vegan and Gluten free menu.

T’s Fried Scoop T’s Fried Scoop are located in the Truman Brewery Upmarket every Saturday from 11am-6pm and every Sunday from 10am-6pm. The fried ice cream is inspired by similar South Indian, Mexican and Japanese desserts but this is a totally unique recipe, and experience.

PURE OATY // NEW PRODUCT

Thank you to Rawlingson Lane for the following content

Family owned, Family run, British manufacturer –
Gluten Free oat milk for ethical consumers

With many consumers now actively investigating not only how products are made, but increasingly, who owns the brand themselves, the focus on family owned, family run companies has never been greater. Glebe Farm Foods has been in the Rayner family for over 50 years, and is currently run by sister and brother Rebecca and Phil. This year, heavy investment by the
family itself has seen the creation of a purpose-built gluten free oat milk plant, located on the same farm at which the oats themselves are grown. This plant has been the catalyst for the launch of PureOaty, the only oat drink on the market that is produced using exclusively British gluten free oats.

Lovingly created in the UK using just 4 natural ingredients: British
gluten free oats, water, sunflower oil and salt, PureOaty contains no
added sugars, sweeteners or preservatives and never, ever comes from
concentrate (unlike many similar products).

Low in sugar and calories, PureOaty is an excellent milk alternative in
delicious barista style coffees, whilst being perfect on cereals, or in
smoothies. In addition, it excels as the base for many sauces, soups and
desserts or as a key ingredient in baking, from gluten free brownies to delicious cakes and bakes.

When steamed through a domestic coffee machine, PureOaty creates a luxurious, velvety barista style foam which is ideal for a morning cappuccino, mid-afternoon latte or an indulgent hot chocolate.

Following the huge demand for plant-based milks in 2020, PureOaty provides a fantastic gluten and dairy-free option for those who are integrating free-from products into their daily lifestyle in 2020.

Suitable for both vegetarians and vegans alike, PureOaty also offers an excellent plant-based option for consumers with a number of dietary requirements including lactose intolerance, coeliac disease and nut allergies.

The Rayner family is delighted with the initial launch of this gluten free oat milk option and are already receiving a great response from consumers following a dairy free diet, as well as those who are choosing it as a lifestyle option.

PureOaty is currently stocked in Holland & Barrett, Central England Co-Op’s and Amazon an retails for around £1.99.

COCONUTS ORGANIC VEGAN ICE CREAM // NEW PRODUCT

Thank you to Tremplin Marketing for the following content

Coconuts Organic is a fabulous vegan ice cream that genuinely tastes as good as the dairy! Made with coconut cream and unrefined coconut sugar and just a few other natural ingredients to this base, It’s certified organic, officially vegan, and probably the best non-dairy ice cream you’ll taste!

With Christmas and Veganuary coming up, they have loads of delicious flavours; Mint Choc; Creamy Coconut; Rum ‘n Raisin…..and lots more!

Coconuts Organic (formerly Coconuts Naturally), the vegan ice cream made famous on BBC Dragon’s Den, announce a significant step in the growth of the business as they secure Tesco listing. From June 17th , Coconuts Organic will be available in more than 600 Tesco stores around the UK, with two brand new flavours (Choc Orange Swirl and Double Caramel) exclusive to Tesco. The timing of the store listing will coincide with the official rebrand when Coconuts Naturally will become Coconuts Organic – the same award-winning, all-natural ice cream, but with a new name and striking packaging! Launched in 2015 by entrepreneur Cecily Mills, the Cornwall-based business has achieved more than 100% sales growth every year in its first three years (partly thanks to the ever-growing customer appetite for vegan products) and has firmly established itself as a dominant player in the free-from category. Commenting on the announcement; CEO and Founder, Cecily Mills said; “Securing a listing with Tesco UK is a real milestone for the business, and we are so excited to share our two new flavours with Tesco shoppers. This has been a huge year for us – starting out with a successful crowdfunding campaign, and now the rebrand, new product launch and coming on board with Tesco. For me personally, it feels like a huge achievement to have Coconuts Organic in supermarket freezers across the country.” In addition to the Tesco listing, Coconuts Organic is currently available UK-wide, via Ocado and in independent stores and cafes via two national distributors. Internationally, the product is available in Dubai. The brand is also developing its international expansion plans, with a particular focus on the Middle East and Asia.
