Mancs Can Snap Up Free Boozy Ice Cream At MediaCityUK This Weekend

Tuk into one of these delights!

Celebrating the anticipated launch of General Stores brand new MediaCityUK store, new Manchester ice cream tuk-tuk A Few Scoops is hitting up the Salford-based complex, dishing out 100 free ice creams this Saturday.

Specialising in alcohol-infused ice creams, sorbets and ice-pops, the new pretty-in-pink tuk-tuk (called Jolene) will be parked up outside of the new General Stores MediaCityUK site from 12-6pm – dishing out freebies to anyone who attends while stocks last.

There’ll be an array of flavours up for grabs, too, including Espresso Martini, Old Fashioned and a vegan Pina Colada, as well as Peach Bellini and a Mojito sorbet and non-alcoholic coke float ice cream and cherryade sorbet.

Speaking of the boozy ice cream venture, owner and founder of A Few Scoops, Alanna Atkinson said: “When we started A Few Scoops, we knew we didn’t want a standard ice cream van, we wanted something that was different that made everyone whip out their phones to take a photo!

“We think we’ve achieved this with Jolene and we’re so excited to be at the launch of General Store MediaCity offering out 100 free scoops for customers to enjoy.”

The General Stores launch will not only see the complex gain a fantastic new local store, specialising in championing local independents but will also mark the beginning of Jolene the tuk-tuk’s summer journey, which will see A Few Scoops travel around the city serving their delicious ice creams. Check them out from 12-6pm this Saturday, 1st May, and be sure to pop into General Stores to check out their fantastic grocery offering (and great local beers and organic wines!).
