Tasty licks and Jedi mind tricks

We make Stew ‘n’ Drew’s ice cream with a variety of small-batch freezers, but the one we have a real soft spot for is the Giusti (pictured above). Small and reliable, it is the R2-D2 of ice cream machines.

Just yesterday we powered it up to create a fresh batch of our Traditional Vanilla. Then, out of the blue, it bleeped and projected a flickering hologram of a tiny Princess.

There she was, standing on the freshly-scrubbed floor of our ice cream factory, clasping her hands together and saying repeatedly: ‘Help me Stew ‘n’ Drew, you’re my only hope’.

Two seconds later, there was a knock on the door. Drew went and answered it – Stew was busy chatting to the Princess – and was met by the equally surprising sight of a wee green guy in robes, licking a cone.

‘Great ice cream you make,’ said the wee green guy, introducing himself as Yoda.

‘Cheers Yoda,’ replied Drew.

Things then got really weird when the milk lorry turned up but instead of the usual driver it was an intergalactic smuggler who went by the name of Han Solo.

In the passenger seat was what can only be described as a Wookiee. Chewbacca let out a yowl so we fed him some ice cream.

We then jumped in the back of the milk lorry – number plate M1LNM FLCN – and spent the rest of the day driving around Moray and much of the galaxy battling the Empire.

By tea-time, we’d triumphed.

Turns out the Force is strong in Stew ‘n’ Drew and that we’re ice cream Jedis. Who’d have thought it?

May the Force be with you too, people of impeccable taste.

The Coke Float

Grab a tall glass and fill it with coke (we recommend Bon Accord Bona-Cola but other brands will do). Now add a couple of scoops of Stew ‘n’ Drew’s ice cream.

Congratulations, you have in your hands a Coke Float. They used to be all the rage, you know. Now that you’ve just played a small but vital role in their long-overdue comeback, celebrate the revival of the Coke Float by downing it in a one-er. Cheers!

Ice cream cavalcade

To us north-east boys, STV was always Grampian. We didn’t have Glen Michael’s Cartoon Cavalcade, like Central Belt viewers. But we did have Kennedy Thomson introducing Chartburn, Frank Gilfeather reading the sports news on North Tonight and adverts for the Bon Accord Centre.

Anyway, where were we? Oh yes, STV recently interviewed Stew ‘n’ Drew. We talked about our journey so far and our aims for 2015. There are mentions too of our forthcoming appearance at the North Hop festival in Aberdeen and ‘beer ice cream’.

STV call us the ‘Ice Boys’ and we like that. Makes us sound like rappers. Nice rappers, mind.

Sign of things to come

Ice cream a-hoy! The Stew ‘n’ Drew’s website is GO.

Above is our sign. We’re thinking of treating it like the Bat-signal. The idea is that your town would receive one of our distress signal devices, which you would project on the sky whenever you were in need of Stew ‘n’ Drew’s ice cream. Then we’d ride to the rescue on our ice cream bike and save the day with a timely cone.

The world needs ice cream superheroes. That’s the plan anyway.
