A friend of mine moved quite recently only to discover, to her mutual despair and delight, an ice cream parlour within far too easy walking distance of her new abode. As ice cream is her ultimate weakness she knew she was doomed and recently decided that if she was going down I was going with her.
I entered the shop expecting nothing too exciting; after 25 years on this earth how could there be ice cream flavours I have yet to try? Somehow, ShliX have an abundance of flavours that had never even occurred to me. For instance I tried Marshmallow, which of course is only for the bravest sweet-tooth. It was amazing, with several real marshmallows hiding within. I have dreamt of it every day since.
As well as being scrumptious, ShliX is good for you (as far as ice cream goes). They use no artificial ingredients or preservatives as well as using only real, fresh Dairy Farmers 3.5% fat milk. According to their website ShliX ice cream boasts only 0-6% fat while regular ice cream generally offers you around 30-60%. SchiX also has only 3-15% Air Content compared to the 50% regular ice cream has.
The perfect place to indulge without an accompanying guilt trip.
