Bespoke and Event Ices
Originally called ‘Mr.Frosty’ and parked in a roughshod parking lot close to Land’s End, our vintage Lola’s on Ice van was rescued from neglect in 2005 and driven back to London where it was hand painted in the psychedelic tradition of its era and given a thoroughly deserved make over.
Lola’s on Ice is a van with attitude! Why should it serve whipped-up palm oil substitutes when it can offer home made ice creams, sorbets and sherbets using primarily organic and seasonal ingredients? Why shouldn’t it challenge taste buds and expectations by offering, for example, beetroot and cassis sorbet, or the ‘hot’ and ‘cold’ experience of horseradish ice cream? How about some other eclectic examples….. caramel flavoured with cumin, miso ice cream or the ever popular Gin and tonic sorbet? Did you know that chefs have been experimenting with whacky flavour combinations for some time (bacon and egg ice cream is a surprise hit at The Fat Duck!) ? Lola’s on Ice has been busy experimenting too!
Our psychedelic ice cream van is probably the most famous ice cream van in the country! It has featured on BBC2’s ’Sweet baby James’ UK TV'S 'Food uncut', entertained at Jamie Oliver’s birthday party and at the UK Music Hall of Fame awards in Crystal Palace, been a regular item at the Big Brother closing parties in Elstree studios and served up ‘Eton Mess’ at Eton College parents day, along with many other high profile events, civil partnership celebrations, weddings and birthday parties.
Our dairy products come from an organically reared Friesian herd in Dorset; our eggs are Soil Association certified organic and our fruit is sourced from Farmers Markets and from high quality fruit purees. As well as experimental flavours, Lola’s on Ice prides itself on its classics - bourbon vanilla ice cream, Valhrona chocolate sorbet and fresh mint ice cream with chocolate brownie, along with kids’ favourites - hokey pokey ice cream, red summer fruit ice cream and mango sorbet. Our website displays a full list of flavours.
