A brand-new ice cream shop, A Few Scoops, has confirmed that it will officially open the doors at General Store’s new MediaCity venue – and it’s giving away 100 free scoops of ice cream in celebration.

A Few Scoops specialises in alcohol infused ice-cream, sorbets and ice-pops and will bring Joleen – its little pink tuk tuk – to the launch. You’ll be able to find Joleen outside General Store MediaCity on Saturday 1 May from noon until 6pm, where you can pick up your free ice cream scoop.

Limited to one scoop per person, while stocks last – A Few Scoops’ flavours include Espresso Martini, Old Fashioned and a vegan Pina Colada. Meanwhile, their sorbet offering includes vegan Peach Bellini and Mojito and there’s even coke floats flavour ice cream and cherryade sorbet for the non-booze drinkers.

Launching in 2019, this Manchester business is the brain child of Alanna Atkinson who wanted to create a way to blend her love of ice cream with her favourite tipples – and the addition of Jolene set Alanna on her way to serving the ice cream of dreams to the city. Available for private hire and parties, you can learn more about A Few Scoops – and Saturday’s launch – by visiting their website.
