An adult ice cream truck tours Greater Manchester this summer, serving alcoholic ice cream, sherbets and popsicles.

A Few Scoops toured the region this weekend, just in time for the spring heat wave Manchester is enjoying.

Boozy ice creams and sorbets are served from a pink tuk tuk known as Jolene, or a pink push bike called Dolly.

Flavors on offer range from sophisticated, old-fashioned espresso martinis to refreshing summer cocktails like pina coladas, peach bellinis and mojitos.

Flavors include pina colada and espresso martini

While the offering focuses on frozen drinks, there are also non-alcoholic flavors on offer, including floating coke ice cream and cherry sorbet.

Many flavors are vegan too.

A Few Scoops will be visiting sites across Trafford, Salford and Cheshire over the next few weeks.

One of his residences will be at Not So Secret Garden in Stamford Square in Atrincham, a new community center with outdoor seating, lounge chairs and a flower wall.

The company was founded in June 2019 by Manchester local Alanna Atkinson.

She said: “When we started A Few Scoops we knew we didn’t want a standard ice cream truck, we wanted something different that required everyone to pull out their phones to take a picture!

“We believe we achieved that goal with Jolene.”
