British cuisine has made great strides over recent years. The rationing-blighted food memories that GIs brought home to the States in the forties might still dominate popular culture's references to Brit-grub, but as anyone who has eaten in Blighty recently can tell you most dishes are delicious (if a bit on the starchy, waterproofing side of the ledger).
So it is with a mixture of both trepidation and excitement that I offer up the bangers-and-mash cone. As described in the press release:
"It may look like a 99 Flake* from afar, but it’s just the latest sign of the British adapting eating habits due to increasingly cold summers. Aunt Bessie’s is breathing new life into the fortunes of the ice cream van by offering cones filled with creamy mashed potatoes and a banger (sausage) topped with gravy and a sprinkling of garden peas."
