HUNDREDS of tubs of ice cream created for whacky TV chef Heston Blumenthal's latest show are being given away to Citizen readers, charities and community groups.
Unilever Gloucester, home of world-famous Walls, helped the zany kitchen chemist build the record-breaking one-tonne ice cream for a Channel Four programme, shown on Tuesday night.
The ice cream was created from a special secret recipe by Heston and his team and frozen at the Walls factory in Barnwood using dry ice and cold air at -90C.
Dave Baker, Walls technology project manager, helped with the production.
"It was quite something to work with Heston, the programme certainly gave Walls and Gloucester a good show," he said. "You're never sure how these things will be edited but it showed the full story of how difficult it was to create."
Five hundred tubs will be handed over to ice-cream lovers who purchase The Citizen from 10am tomorrow at the Asda store in Metz Way.
