Joanne grew up in the 1970s and 80s, a time when a 1 litre block of Neapolitan was considered a cutting edge dessert. A childhood of ice cream indifference was consigned to history after a year in America introduced her to a new world of flavours and cones that didn’t taste like cardboard. A few years and a small ice cream machine later and she was experimenting with recipes and finding out that vanilla isn’t the same colour as margarine and is actually very tasty. More years passed and a year in Belgium provided more inspiration. Then a sudden spur of the moment decision resulted in a trip to Ulverston and an eBay purchase of a black and orange ice cream van. Two weeks of auto-beautification later and Nellie the van was born.
Livvy the greyhound inspired the name. She is also partial to the large helping of peanut butter and banana dog ice cream.
