It’s that time of year, Christmas parties and drinks followed by work the next day. How many of us will be suffering from a bit of a hangover at some point this month?

Spotted!

Spotted on the supermarket shelves this week is a new flavour from Haagen-Dazs: Honey, Walnut and Cream Ice Cream.  If you haven’t got time to make your own ice cream this weekend, Haagen Dazs is a good alternative for a beautifully creamy and good quality ice cream.  Available at Sainsbury’s and it’s on promotion at £2.50.  Nice flavour combo!  I think we might try some more nice, nutty flavours here at Loveicecream’s HQ over the next few weeks.  More info here.
