The Prince of Wales concluded a tour of Wales with a visit to Frank’s ice cream factory.
A special flavour ice cream was created to tempt His Royal Highness’s taste buds during the final visit in the week-long summer tour.
Joe Dallavalle, 85, who headed the firm for 40 years, said:
“We didn’t know even if he likes ice cream but everyone knows he likes bara brith so we created a new flavour,” he said.
His Royal Highness said:
“Before I go I just want to say how thrilled I have been to have this brief opportunity to visit Frank’s ice cream emporium. I shall leave here now having discovered a brand new experience which is clotted cream ice-cream, I think that that deserves an award”, he added.
The prince also unveiled a commemorative plaque and signed the visitors book.
As he left The Prince was presented with a solid silver ice cream scoop specially made by jeweller Mari Thomas. “Fantastic,” said the Prince, as he took it out of the presentation box. “It will also double as a tie-pin,” he joked, holding it up in front of his shirt.
