NEW TRENDS

First UHT Chocolate Soft Serve Arrives to the UK, UK

A collaboration between dairy company Jersey Dairy, and ingredients supplier Henley Bridge has resulted in the UK’s first-of-its-kind UHT chocolate soft serve. Combining Jersey Dairy’s original Vanilla Luxury Softmix with a special blend of Belcolade cocoa mass and deZaan cocoa powder, the pair have created an ultra creamy and rich chocolate soft serve blend with a longer-shelf life, thanks to the UHT recipe used.

The extra creaminess and richness comes from the higher butterfat content than other milks, says Steve Carrigan, Henley Bridge’s ice cream and gelato technician to Dairy Industries. Available exclusively from Henley Bridge at a price point of £40.57 (€47.11 / $49.76 USD) for 12 x 1L tetrapak packs, the soft serve requires no mixing or measuring making it easier for hospitality businesses to incorporate into their portfolio.
