The Saffron Ice Cream Company was commissioned by a Premier League football club to produce dairy ice cream to thank loyal fans.

Watford Football Club, who are currently on course for their highest ever finish in the league, wanted to thank young fans for their support over the season and with the warm spring weather predicted, they decided that ice cream was a great way to give something back.

The Saffron Ice Cream Company produced 5,000 personalised tubs for the Hertfordshire club with a message of ‘Thank you for your support’.

The tubs were given to those in the family section of the Vicarage Road Stand on May 5 as Newcastle United visited for the last home game of the 2017/18 season.

The match finished in a 2-1 victory for the Hornets.

Watford FC decided to impress fans with ‘Finest Vanilla Pod’, which was a gold star winner at the 2016 Great Taste awards, highlighting that it is amongst the best ice cream in the country.

Dominic Parry, managing director at the Saffron Ice Cream Company, said: “We are delighted to have produced the ice cream for Watford FC, being the team I’ve supported from a young age. It has been a really fun project to work on and we all hope the fans enjoy the ice cream we’ve made for them.”
