Blur are set to launch their very own brand of ice cream, coinciding with the release of their new album ‘The Magic Whip’ and their upcoming tour.
The band, who went straight to Number One in the UK last week with their first album in 12 years, will be selling their ‘Magic Whip’ ice cream at their upcoming UK dates, as well as at selected Co-Operative stores, from June.
The product was created in conjunction with dairy specialist The Licktators and has been described as “a dairy vanilla custard ice cream rippled with raspberry sauce”. See pictures below.
The company have previously released music-themed flavours such as Jiggy Pop (popcorn flavour) and John Lemon (Lemon curd). They also made headlines recently by producing breast milk ice cream to mark the birth of royal baby, Princess Charlotte.
Blur have been previewing their new ice cream recently with a special ‘Magic Whip’ ice cream van. Also see photos of that beneath.
