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.

    Yes I remember the disgusting slop that was Gino Ginelli ice cream. The same foul tasting muck you can still rely on Walls to produce, and the most blatant rip off ever seen, of Grinellis, the finest tasting Ice Cream you can buy, still trading in Macclesfield if you're interested.

    I remember it! The Toffee Fudge was my favourite. What happened to it?

    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.
