Tip Top Causes a Ripple: Boysenberry Ripple wins national gold for fifth year running

Ice cream lovers have even more reason to indulge in their favourite Tip Top treats after they scooped a number of prestigious awards at last night’s annual New Zealand Ice Cream Awards in Blenheim.

The award wins are the first since Tip Top announced it was replacing all artificial colours and flavours with natural alternatives in July last year.

Tip Top took home five golds and eight silvers at the awards. The stand out win of the night was the gold for Tip Top’s Boysenberry Ripple Ice Cream, which won the ‘Best in Category’ for 'Standard Ice Cream’ for the fifth year running!

Best in Categories were awarded for ‘Standard Vanilla Ice Cream’; the ‘Low Fat category’ with Tip Top Creamy Yoghurt Ice Cream Strawberry; the ‘Kids Choice Category’ with its Candy Floss Ice Cream and the 'Standard Ice Cream’ with Boysenberry Ripple Ice Cream.

Minna Reinikkala, Tip Top Group Marketing Manager commented, “It’s fantastic to have Tip Top’s superior taste and quality recognised with these award wins.”

“Tip Top has always prided itself on using fresh, quality ingredients such as fresh cream and milk that reflect our New Zealandness. We also use local ingredients wherever possible, for example the boysenberries in the Boysenberry Ripple Ice Cream are sourced from Nelson.”

“Now Kiwis can enjoy our ice-creams which are not only award-winning but contain only natural colours and flavours, helping them feel Tip Top!”

The national awards aim to raise the standards and promote the quality of New Zealand ice cream, with key judging criteria focusing on texture, taste and flavour and melting properties. Gold Awards were given to entries with more than 95 points and Silver Awards to those between 90 and 95 points.

Tip Top’s award-winning ice creams are available at all leading supermarkets and dairies.

Last year, Tip Top took out the Supreme Award for a Large Manufacturer for its Boysenberry Ripple ice cream, and Best in Categories for ‘Standard Vanilla Ice Cream’, ‘Best of Cookies & Cream’ and the ‘Low Fat category’ for Creamy Yoghurt Ice Cream Strawberry.

There were over 300 entrants this year.

Tip Top has been making ice cream in New Zealand since the 1930s.
