Ice Creams from Yesterday and Today

Many ice cream manufactures each year look to cash in on latest trends and fashions, some endure the test of time while some ice creams are seen just for one summer season.

The Fab lolly has to be one of the outstanding iconic named brands to endure.Introduced in 1967 now holds the title as longest running continuous ice lolly on the UK market.

Below are some ice lollies that have come and gone due to fashion changes

Who remembers Steve Austin the Six Million Dollar Man and the bionic lolly.Or the Dalek’s Death Ray popularised by DR Who.

The haunted House lolly was a milk flavoured lolly and many a child used to unwrap as quickly as possible to see what ghostly print was on their lolly.

The Zoom lolly has been around nearly as long as the Fab and has had an image update so as to look to the future.

Today the favourite lollies chosen by children from their ice cream vans in Kent are split between the branded items such as Chocolate or Mint Feast,Twister,Knobbly Bobbly and non branded favourites such as The Bubblegum lolly and Strawberry lolly.

By far the most popular lolly which outsells all others is the Smartie pop up

A New Product introduced by Markes Ice Cream vans for 2012 season is the much loved by all who try one The Ben and Jerrys Wich sandwich.

A combination of ice cream and chocolate chip cookie is proving very popular with young and old.

By far the the main reason for choosing to visit one of Kent’s favourite ice cream vans is to sample the delicious soft whip ice cream and the vast array of ways to sample it.

Of course the best known is the 99 style ice cream with the extra delight of an added Cadbury Flake. Markes Ices are always looking to bring new and exciting ways to add to the experience and for the 2012 season introduced the marshmallow cone,soft whip ice cream cone then rolled in multi coloured marshmallows with a topping sauce of choice.

Company spokesman Robert Ellinor said “For the first time we have seen the new marshmallow cone outselling the flake 99 with children”.

Add to this old favourites such as the Popeye, Oyster, and sherbet cones the biggest problem is which to choose today.

Ice Cream Van Hire In Faversham - Ice Cream vans In Faversham

Faversham is a market town and civil parish in the Swale borough of Kent, England. The parish of Faversham (Feversham) grew up around an ancient sea port on Faversham Creek and was the birthplace of the explosives industry in England.Faversham was the cradle of the UK’s explosives industry: it was also to become one of its main centres. The first gunpowder plant was established in the 16th century, possibly at the instigation of Faversham Abbey. With their estates andendowments monasteries were keen to invest in promising technology.The town was well-placed for the industry. It had a stream which could be dammed at intervals to provide power for watermills. On its outskirts were low-lying areas ideal for the culture of alder and willow to provide charcoal — one of the three key gunpowder ingredients. The stream fed into a tidal Creek where sulphur, another key ingredient, could be imported, and the finished product loaded for dispatch to Thames-side magazines. The port was also near the Continent where in warfare demand for the product was brisk.

Although Faversham Abbey was dissolved by Henry VIII the nearby St Mary of Charity, Faversham Parish Church remains. It has an unusual 18th-century flying spire, known as a crown or corona spire, which is visible for long distances. The interior was restored and transformed by Sir George Gilbert Scott, known for St Pancras Station, the Foreign Office and many college and cathedral buildings, in 1874. Notable features of the church include the reputed tomb of King Stephen (the church is thus one of only a few churches outside London where an English king was interred), nationally important misericords in the quire, a rare medieval painted pillar and a recently installed altar dedicated to Saints Crispin and Crispinian. The church supports a strong choral tradition with a choir of adults and children who sing Anglican matins, evensong and communion.

Today Faversham is a lively town with many visitors and popular with visitors to the Town Carnival and ever growing Hop and Beer festival. Markes Ices with their bright yellow and purple livery add that extra wow factor to many events in and around Faversham.

Sittingbourne is an industrial town about eight miles (12.9 km) east of Gillingham in England, beside the Roman Watling Street off a creek in the Swale, a channel separating the Isle of Sheppey from mainland Kent.

By the time of the Norman invasion in 1086, Sittingbourne was not recorded as part of the Domesday book, merely a note attached to Milton with a population of 309. However, after the murder of the Archbishop of Canterbury, Thomas Becket in 1170, pilgrims began to make the journey to Canterbury Cathedral and Sittingbourne became a useful hostelry for many travellers. Sittingbourne is mentioned as a stopping point in The Canterbury Tales.

Sittingbourne owes its name to a modernised version of an observation on its location. The town’s name came from the fact that there is a small stream or “bourne” running underground in part of the town. Hasted writing in the 1790s in his History of Kent states that Sittingbourne was anciently written Sedingbourne,in Saxon,Saedingburga the hamlet by the bourne or small stream.
