It is such a shame that the ice cream is very expensive in this shop and would not recommend it for this reason. Also it is quite often closed.

I'm so sorry that you weren't overly impressed with what we offer. With all due respect, my partner and I run 2 ice cream parlours, and work 7 days a week (except in bad weather), so I am a little confused as to why you mention that we are often closed. We are certainly not lazy! I can only think you have passed us early in the morning, as we don't open until 10:30.

As for being expensive, I can only say that when we set up, we decided that we wanted to offer something special to our customers. We could have just gone for the cheapest ice cream, and in turn sold it on very cheap. But we wanted to sell something fantastic! We chose to sell Minghella ice creams and sorbets because it is of a very high quality, doesn't use all the artificial ingredients that many of the cheaper brands do, and is made here on our very Island. We are aware that we cannot compete price-wise with things like Walls, Mr. Whippy and other cheap brands. Being cheap is not our selling point, and we feel there is already more than enough 'cheap' ice cream available in the area. That is not our ethos. We wanted to offer something different, and something we could be proud of. Luckily, most of our customers are delighted that we are selling Minghella, and are more than happy to pay marginally more to taste something special.
