Ice, ice baby – Eating ice cream really does make you smile
Is there any greater symbol of summer (now it’s arrived) than ice cream in a cone, sundae or tub?
It’s such an easy, simple joy shared by children and adults and now comes in so many flavours there’s something for everyone.

Good luck with your competition entry.
