Yee Kwan Ice Cream

Yee Kwan credits her parents for her passion for ice cream and after travelling with her husband, on returning to England, she set up a business making ice creams, inspired by her Chinese heritage and flavours.  Yee Kwan was a participant on Dragon's Den and won, getting investment from Debra Meaden, who continues to be her mentor.

Yee Kwan recently invested in a range of vegan ice creams and sorbets and sent me samples, but sadly I cannot eat most of them as they contain soya.   However Steven stepped up to the mark, being happy to try them on my behalf and gave his honest opinion

Chocolate Miso 

Salted Caramel



Yuzu Sorbet

Pink Guava & Passionfruit Sorbet

The ice creams are delicious, though edging more towards a sorbet not a creamy ice cream, which was a surprise, as they contain coconut cream.   The flavours are good, but need more punch, with Steven's favourites being toasted coconut, mango, then chocolate miso, with matcha in last place, although matcha fans will love it.   I like my sorbets with tongue tickling fruit flavours and these were a little subtle for me, a tad grainy and not as smooth as expected.

However compared to other brands on the market, Yee Kwan certainly hold their own against fierce competition and certainly do not disappointment and can be found in Harvey Nichols, Wholefood Market, Wing Yip and independents.
