Gino Ginelli

This Memory is looking a little short on nostalgia! Have you got anything you could add?

Gino Ginelli was a range of ice-creams popular in the late 80s, early 90s. The best flavour was toffee fudge (pronounced 'toffee-fooogee' in the adverts), that had toffee pieces in it. There was also a tutti fruitti flavour and mint choc chip, or 'minty choccy chip' as the authentic Italian on the advert told us.

    Gino, I think that you are an incredibly wonderful person, albeit from what I have seen on TV so here goes, ...... I would really really appreciate your help, since watching a programme made with Rachel Allen with you, your family, in your garden, I have wanted your outdoor kitchen, I have saved and saved and now, hopefully, have enough to build one just like it, only trouble is I don't know where to start, please contact me and let me know what to do. Thankyou so much Gino, God Bless, Yvonne x

    It had the similar 'superiority' complex that Vienetta did at the time, and many people found it rather overpriced.

    I'm amazed nobody has mentioned my favourite, the choc & nut one that had whole hazelnuts in it. Bootiful. I could quite easily eat a whole (1 litre round tub) to my lard-arse self.

    Robejn713 - I remember that frozen cream!! It was called 'Superwhip' and my Mum used to buy it in Iceland. My brother and I used to fight over it at the dinner table! I miss Superwhip :o(
