If somebody could bring back that fantastic Grimwoods ice cream, they would certainly clean up in the ice cream wars.
Thanks to Garth Hanson!

I have exchanged words with family members about the ice cream formula and although it is still available it is not cost effective anymore. The ingredients used back then make it too expensive for manufacture and to compete with the products available today.
Thanks to David Smith!

David, cost effective doesn't count when quality is main aim, I've seen ice cream in small tubs,enough for one portion at a cost of ?9 plus and it doesn't have that once in a lifetime taste of the Grimwoods ice cream,if marketed correctly it would cooker the ice cream World, and my fridge !!!
Thanks to Garth Hanson!

It would be nice if somebody could confirm if a couple of my old friends were still alive and kicking, Susan Lightfoot and Roy Fearnley, both would be in their mid 70's now.

Hi Barry, I grew up with this pair, I lived at 8 Chassen Rd, there was also Geoff Whittle, Bob Clarke, Les Lightfoot, Tony Pearson and loads more, cheers.
