Once upon a time, there came a message from Richard: “Ben & Jerry’s are opening a store in Manly and there’s FREE icecream!” which led to a callout on Twitter for foodbloggers to join us in the beauty of free icecream. Rocking up to the store (25-27 South Steyne, Manly) and eager for ice cream were Yas, Jacq, Mark, Rose and Shez.
The queue that started across the road. The waiting time wasn’t too bad- about 10-15mins and we were kept entertained by staff doing competitions for cooler bags, stickers and spoons.
These cows were kinda scary… they were like 2D cows without heads!
Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield were there to mark the grand opening of the Manly Scoop Shop complete with camera crew

Round 4. Berry Berry Extraordinary, Lemonade Stand Sorbet, Chocolate Therapy, Chocolate Macadamia, Peanut Butter Cookie Dough
A break from the sweetness was needed and so fish and chips to the rescue! I kinda negated the need for no sweetness by drinking Mother
Chilling out at Manly beach where Jacq and i watch Yas and Richard start off by building sand boobies before doing the foodbloggers proud and making sand wontons and sand sushi. Note the beginnings of Yas’ sunburn.
