Mackie's of Scotland are set to serve up some chilling treats this Halloween, with pumpkin waffles and black ice cream on offer at their Aberdeen ice cream parlour. 

Mackie’s 19.2, has revamped its menu this Halloween to serve up pumpkin waffles, black ice cream and some ‘creepy crepes’, as well as a seasonal pumpkin spiced latte.

The black ice cream is a one-off blackcurrant and liquorice flavour, which is being made alongside another Halloween themed treat, blood orange sorbet.

Parlour manager at Mackie’s 19.2, Yvette Harrison, said: “Not only are these limited edition
desserts incredibly tasty, they’re very visual too, making them a fun way to celebrate Halloween
and take a picture.

“We love making fun recipes throughout the year and Halloween is another perfect occasion to
get creative with the looks and flavours of our plates and scoops”

Mackie’s is well-known for its unique parlour creations, having created weird and wonderful
flavours such as Haggis ice cream for Burn’s Night and Brussel Sprout ice cream for Christmas.

The parlour is named 19.2 because it is located in the city’s Marischal Square – exactly 19.2
miles away from the family farm, near Inverurie, where all of Mackie’s ice cream and chocolate
is made.

Yvette added: “Make sure you pop in to get a taste of our scary additions to the menu as the nights draw in and let us know what you think.”
