The Lux­ury Ice Cream Com­pany (LICC) of­fers a Willy Wonka-grade 150 dif­fer­ent flavoured ice creams from its fan­tas­ti­cal premises in York’s city cen­tre. A team of ‘flavourol­o­gists’ spend days work­ing on new flavours, blend­ing all man­ner of weird and won­der­ful in­gre­di­ents, like the ever-pop­u­lar tiger’s tail, which pairs liquorice and orange, or co-owner Dawn Ar­gyle’s per­sonal favourite, Bakewell tart. The shop gets through 60 litres of lo­cal York­shire milk a day, such is its pop­u­lar­ity, and also serves old school-style sweets and choco­late bars. The shop launched in 2010 af­ter the own­ers ex­pe­ri­enced their first taste of gelato on hol­i­day in Barcelona. ‘We use Ital­ian ma­chin­ery, but ev­ery­thing else is lo­cal,’ says Ar­gyle. ‘We call it York­shire gelato.’
