2001 New Zealand Ice Cream Awards

The fifth NEW ZEALAND ICE CREAM AWARDS were held in Greymouth on Friday, 6 July 2001.

117 entries were submitted by 15 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 which includes Kids Choice judged by three ten year old local primary school children (two boys and a girl).

The Supreme Award was given to the most outstanding ice cream across all categories, this year awarded to the winner of the Export Category, with a maximum score of 100 points.

The Supreme Award winner is Chateau Creme Delight Ice Cream Co Ltd for their 'Almond Caramel'

The kids were unanimous in their selection of 'Marshmallow Magic' made by Chateau Creme Delight Ice Cream Co Ltd of Auckland.

The winner of the Open Creative Category was Wendy's Supa Sundaes with their 'White Chocolate Heaven'. This needs to be mentioned as they also scored the maximum of 100 points. Entries in this category are not eligible for the Supreme Award as the products do not have to be marketed. This is to try and encourage entries from hotels and restaurants.

In his summing up, Dr Smyth said that he has seen a significant improvement in the quality of entries. The quality of the vanilla ice cream had improved as there were four Gold Awards in this category compared to none last year.
