A little nostalgia

Do you have nostalgic feelings about your youth? Days of riding bicycles with the wind blowing through your hair and eating ice cream without a care in the world, when simply blowing bubbles and the sight of balloons made you happy? Ah the good old days!

Well something that’s sure to tug on your sense of nostalgia and make you happy if you’re an ice cream fan is The Soft Machine.  It was launched at the Design Indaba last week and has now bagged a spot at the Biscuit Mill! It will be there tomorrow so make sure you get down there and try one of their exciting soft serve flavours from their super cool renovated 60’s caravan. They aim to make fresh soft serve with quality natural ingredients with innovative recipes being developed by Kobus van der Merwe of Paternoster’s Oep ve Koep.

The concept was put together by ideas agency Cow Africa, with caravan design by Thingking and illustrations by Radio. What a creative team and venture, I’m definitely looking forward to trying their soft serve… do I go with the Milk tart or Honey Bush Tea served with a cinnamon spice shortbread biscuit? Sounds good! Have a happy and fun weekend friends!
