2000 New Zealand Ice Cream Awards

The fourth NEW ZEALAND ICE CREAM AWARDS were held in Auckland on Friday, June 23rd, 2000.

110 entries were submitted by 13 ice cream manufacturers for judging by two international expert judges, Dr Alan Smyth of Melbourne and Mr Garry Baker from Sydney.

International judging guidelines were followed with each ice cream starting off with 100 points from which points are deducted due to various imperfections such as appearance defects, body and texture, flavour defects and melting defects.

Entries were in 7 categories, including "Kids Choice" judged by three ten year old Howick school children (two boys and a girl).

The Supreme Award is given to the most outstanding ice cream across all categories and this year it was impossible for the judges to separate two entries which each attained the maximum of 100 points.

The two joint Supreme Award winners were Kapiti Cheeses Ltd - 'Fig and Honey' and New Zealand Natural Pty Ltd - 'Mango Sorbet'.

The kids were unanimous in their selection of 'Teletroubles' made by Deep South Ice Cream Co Ltd, of lnvercargill.

Dr Smyth, who has over 20 years experience judging at ice cream competitions and has judged all previous New Zealand Ice Cream Awards, states that he has seen a significant improvement in the quality of entries, but this year the quality of vanilla ice cream had slipped and there were no gold awards in this category.

Entries 110; Silver Awards 38; Gold Awards 38
