We hope that you all have a lovely Christmas - our ice cream team are now on holiday and the ice cream dairy has closed for a Christmas break. But don't worry we have made lots of stock for you! For example, on their last day this team managed to make over 50,000 litres of Traditional, Raspberry Ripple and Organic flavours. In total we made about 9 million litres of Mackie's ice cream this year. Check out our advert calendar on our facebook page
We’re enjoying some Christmas advent activity over on facebook – come and join in! We have had lots of great ideas on how to re-use Mackie’s ice cream tubs as part of the Christmas celebrations – for example one of our Friends of Mackie’s – Adam, told us that he fills a Mackie’s tub with some little golden treats to create a gift “pot of gold”! That inspired many other lovely ideas – most popular one was to fill with home made treats like tablet and fudge to make a nice teacher’s gift .
We are going to be Country Living Christmas Fair at the SECC Glasgow– starts Thursday 20th through to Sunday 23rd November. Come and see us - It’s a lovely show and a fun day out – and a great chance to start getting into the Christmas spirit! Cathie’s Christmas offer is a selection of our chocolate bars gift wrapped into packs of 4 - a nice little stocking filler! We are looking forward to it -
