To mark its second year as Edinburgh International Film Festival’s official ice cream sponsor, Graham’s the Family Dairy has concocted a quirky range of ice cream flavours inspired by classic cinema snacks.

The trio of flavours will be taste-tested by members of the public with the favourite being made available to filmgoers at screenings and events during the festival.

Sampling of the winning, limited edition ice cream will take place during the free outdoor Film Fest in the City event at St Andrews Square Gardens from 10-12th June.

Graham’s marketing director Carol Graham says they wanted to do ‘something a bit different’.

“My personal favourite is the popcorn ice cream and I look forward to enjoying it alongside a fantastic line-up of festival films this summer,” she said.
