New Ice-Cream Parlour Opens in Portswood
Goodbye Gannaways, hello Sprinkles Gelato.
I went along to the new ice-cream parlour, Sprinkles Gelato, in Portswood High Street, to check out what delights they have on offer.
Not quite the usual kebab-shop style designs we’re accustomed to in Portswood, Sprinkles is nicely decorated pink inside, with a tasty array of ice cream flavours. You can also pick extra sweet toppings, crepes, chocolate-covered fruit and waffles. It’s open ‘til midnight seven days a week, and there’s even a TV playing music channels to chill out to whilst you eat.
I spoke to manager, Sharif, about its opening:
We opened the Friday just gone. It was really good, we’ve had a good response even up to today; it’s still going really well!
With tons of ice-cream flavours to choose from, I had to ask what his favourite was:
Pino Pinguino – it’s like nutella, but it’s layered so you have a layer of nutella, a layer of ice-cream, layer of nutella. I also like the strawberry cheesecake! Ferrero Rocher is definitely the best-seller.
And the weirdest flavour?
Chocolate sorbet seems to be quite unusual, and we do an apple pie flavour as well.
He also hinted there may be more Sprinkles Gelato’s popping up elsewhere:
We’ve geared up to be a chain; we’ve trademarked ourselves with our own logo and we’re hoping to start from Portswood and [go] probably to the South Coast and Southampton area, but we haven’t got a limit.
Sprinkles Gelato offers a range of ice creams, sundaes, crepes, waffles and other deserts to the fine denizens of Portswood. Check out their menus here.
