Gallones was great

Gallones, July 16-w500-h500Twenty two members thoroughly enjoyed their visit to Gallones in Adam & Eve Street last night.  We enjoyed a short talk on the history of the company which dates back to 1895, through to its recent, successful venture into franchising, of which the Market Harborough parlour was its pilot.

We found out about how ice cream is made and the amazing range of flavours, before getting to try some.  The salted caramel, their most popular flavour, was delicious.
