Sweet treats – with a sprinkling of sugar and chocolate of course!

Sometimes there is nothing quite like a real dessert, a dessert that fills you up and every bite of every mouthful is just filled with total satisfaction. I know you must be sitting there imagining the taste of your favourite food. Maybe the tummy has even started to rumble slightly? Well when I imagine that special dessert I think of Belgian waffles and warm churros dipped in a fresh hot chocolate sauce. Who doesn’t love chocolate right?

Churros are just one of those desserts that aren’t enjoyed nearly as much as they should be, instead doughnuts are the preferred choice of many that love to indulge in a sugary treat. But why is that? The first thing that pops into my mind is the texture. When made correctly however there should be very little difference, apart from the crispy outside, along with the rich doughy centre. Another misconception is that churros are dry and lack any real taste – but that’s what the chocolate sauce is for. The rich sauce soaks into the churros softening the outside, but still leaving that crunch many have come to relish.

Here at Ideas Box we have both a doughnuts and churros tricycle, with both being extremely popular, especially for private events. The churros is prepared to order so you will only receive the highest quality for your event. Fresh and crisp and warm to the insides, the churros will leave you feeling satisfied inside, I can guarantee that!

The doughnuts tricycle is another guest favourite and with multiple toppings every doughnut can be something to behold. Again we make them fresh to order and serve in bamboo boats, so that none of the sauce is lost! With sauces including white and dark chocolate, caramel and strawberry they could be mixed together – I have no idea what it would taste like, but it would be a lot of fun right?

There’s more photos on our Instagram and Facebook pages so feel free to check them out!

But my all-time favourite dessert has to be Belgian waffles and I would always smother them in white or milk chocolate at home and ‘stuff my face’ (my mum’s words) on a Sunday in front of a film. So working on the other side, actually making waffles and helping to organise events so that others can experience and fall in love with the unique taste, is really amazing.

Our Gold tricycle hosts our waffle machines and the waffles can of course be personalised with a whole host of toppings. Including strawberries and cream, banana and of course chocolate sauces. But of course we work for you, so if you ever fancy a different topping all you have to do is ask and we will try our best to make it happen.

With a busy bank holiday weekend for us we cannot wait to serve more guests and provide some excellent food and drink.

Enjoy the long weekend.

POPS and Ice Cream – summer delights

Why is it that summer always goes so fast and winter seems to drag on for the majority of the year? Some of you reading this may really enjoy winter. Fresh morning jogs, strolls in the park with leaves around your ankles wrapped in bulky clothing to keep out the cold. And of course the magic that is Christmas and the New Year. But me, I am all about the summer and the weather (hopefully good) that comes with it. Chillaxing in a beer garden, beach walks where you lose yourself in your surroundings, music festivals and more, I’m sure everyone has their own definition of summer.

But of course there’s the refreshments – the ice cold taste of ice cream and popsicles. Here at Ideas Box we do both and both are always in such high demand throughout the summer. Both tricycles definitely have done the rounds this summer and with more events to follow, more and more guests will get to experience the wonders these tricycles hold.

We have teamed up with POPS to provide outstanding ice popsicles that all can enjoy. With a range of flavours including classic champagne and Moscow Mule off their ‘naughty’ variety. Along with ‘nice’ flavours non-alcoholic apple and elderflower and my favourite strawberry and mint. They are refreshing and full of flavour and a huge hit with all that try them. With an pedigreed clientele as highlighted in a recent Daily Mail article, is it really any surprise that they are a company destined for continued success? We are proud to have a POPS tricycle.

At a recent event they were so popular they were all gone only a few hours into service. All the guests marvelled at them, so much so that many had multiple popsicles. All of us here at Ideas Box love the pops and sales and marketing assistant Emma said:

‘They taste great, look great and I couldn’t hand them out quick enough’.

We look forward to many continued events serving POPS.

Enquire about the POPS tricycles availability through this blog. You can also check them out on Twitter and Instagram here!

Our ice cream tricycles is one of our most popular and no wonder with the hot even humid weather we’ve been experiencing. Well we have waited long enough! We have four different ice cream tricycles to choose from, three 1930’s style and one 1960’s style. Both styles equally as special as the other. From the photos below you can probably tell that as well! Colourful and full of life they really do add real character to events.

And well of course they wouldn’t be popular if the ice cream was awful now would it. The ice cream is far from awful, it is in fact it’s amazing and truly delicious. I’ve tried it and all I can say is wow and we get zero negative responses from clients. They all pretty much say the same thing, ‘can I have some more’.

To top it off today (19th August) is national soft ice cream day. First thought to have originated from Tom Carvel in 1934, he sold his newly discovered ice cream to holidaymakers in New York. You can read the full story here.

Maybe we owe the ice cream we have come to love today all to that man?!

Introductory Post – Pick N Mix and Pimm’s

Here at Ideas Box we are always looking to provide unique and creative ideas for every single type of event. From weddings to corporate we do it all. No event is too challenging and every single member of our staff is willing to go that extra mile to make your event so memorable that it’ll live long into distant memory.

We are well into the summer party season and wow have they been memorable this year. I recall serving guests on the Pick N Mix tricycle and watching their faces light up at a long lost past time – sweets and a seemingly endless supply of them!

Our Pick N Mix tricycle contains 48kg of sweets and up to 15 different varieties at a time – enough to keep all of your guests happy I am sure of it. Sweets and events are a beautiful combination, a marriage made in heaven so to speak. The drinks are flowing, the guests are laughing and the music is playing softly in the background, the sweets could just add that extra level to your event. Perhaps turning it from spectacular to outright perfection?

Pick and Mix Tricycle

Imagine seeing your guests gleefully milling around a Pick N Mix tricycle, tucking into their childhood memories of penny sweets, now wouldn’t that be something? That’s the power these magnificent tricycles have on people, they recreate memories and help to establish new ones. But it isn’t just the Pick N Mix tricycle that has that effect.

Guests enjoying the Pick N Mix

Our Pimm’s tricycle is extremely popular with guests, so much so that we usually run out of servings way before the end the end of events. Made with fresh fruit, hand prepared on site so that we can offer you the full Pimm’s experience. Just know we never cut corners.

Pimm’s Tricycle

But if you’re sitting here reading this and your summer party or corporate event has been and gone and you’d have to wait a whole year to experience the perfection that is Pimm’s, well think again. We offer a winter Pimm’s service just as special and popular as its summer counterpart. Mulled wine tickle your taste buds? We do that as well, we are the complete package. Warm up with our excellent drinks service and escape those winter chills.
