Like self-completing homework, commuting by jetpack or traffic wardens being exiled to a desert island, mankind has always strived towards seemingly impossible dreams.
While the abolition of parking tickets and nipping down the shops at the speed of sound are still some way off, Joe Jackson’s Milkshake Bar and Homemade Ice Cream company has already achieved one of mankind’s most important steps: the creation of ice cream cake; an ingenious device which cunningly melds two of man’s favourite food stuffs.
Two layers of soft vanilla sponge combined with a choice of two different flavours of ice cream from the hundred-strong Joe Jackson range of ice creams, the ice cream cake is a double whammy of deliciousness that our ancestors could only have dreamt of.
They are made on the premises by Joe Jackson’s, who make and sell American style ice cream in Foyleside Shopping Centre, Derry and at the Courtyard Shopping Centre in Letterkenny.
Freshly made on site, their shakes, ice cream, coffee and, of course, their ice cream cakes have won them numerous fans.
Joe Jackson’s have developed a signature range of ten different ice cream cakes.
These range from the chocolate inferno of the Alabama Mud Pie to the sweet crunch of the Hunnycomb Heaven: two layers of soft vanilla sponge, layered with honeycomb chunks, sandwiched between two layers of JJ’s Hunnycomb Ice Cream, finished and topped with even more honeycomb chunks.
Alternatively, you can freestyle your cake-making skills and custom build your own ice cream cake.
Both choices can be personalised with a message and there are sponge free options available for people with specific food requirements.
