Together, we are strong! So goes the philosophy behind our new Topped range. But do you eat the ice cream first, or the topping? Or do you blend them both up into a deliciously gooey mélange? Ultimately, that’s something only you can decide, but in the meantime, check out these solid approaches to tackling this most mouthwatering of questions...
Item number 1
Exacting and rigorous, the Perfectionist knows just what they like. For this person, the ratio of ice cream to topping is crucial, and no spoonful will pass their lips without the perfect balance having been painstakingly achieved with surgical precision.
Item number 2
Slow and steadfast, the Tortoise plays the long game, working their way through their pint secure in the knowledge that the finish line will still be there tomorrow. Steadily they go, scoop by delicious scoop, until the spoon touches bottom. It’s a tough job, but somebody has to do it.
Item number 3
For the Hare, dispatching a pint of Topped ice cream is a challenge too tempting to resist. Overcome with excitement, this person ploughs in with impressive gusto, quickly becoming full. Although pipped to the post by the lumbering and dependable Tortoise, the Hare walks away with something leftover for later. It’s not all bad, being a Hare.
Item number 4
Like that person who has to eat all the icing before they tackle the cake, the Separatist polishes off that delectably fudgy topping first. Once that’s done, it’s full steam ahead with phase 2: ice cream!
Item number 5
You did a great job at work, but for some reason your boss just wouldn’t show you any love. All your efforts passed by without so much as a ‘thank you’ or a nod of encouragement – well forget your boss. Congratulate yourself with a tub of Topped!
The Master of Self-Restraint
The Master of Self-Restraint’s patience is the stuff of legend – marvel at the restraint as they wait for their pint of Topped to soften! Only when the consistency is just so will the Master of Self-Restraint take up their spoon and set out to claim their hard-won reward.
For some people, one extra layer of love just isn’t enough. After all, why make do with one delicious Topped flavour when you can have two? That's a principle the Doubler lives by, and their only problem is deciding which Topped flavours to combine next.
