Answering Your Questions

Got a burning question? We might have answered it below.

What is the difference between Equi’s and other ice cream?

Where do we start? Our lovingly prepared ice cream is a unique blend of the finest ingredients and lashings of fresh Scottish milk and double cream. And unlike other folk, we don’t pump our ice cream full of air, cheap vegetable fat or unnecessary artificial additives. The result is an unrivalled range of deliciously quirky flavours that keep the awards flooding in.

What size of tubs do you sell?

If you wish to pick and choose your own flavours from our awesome cabinet display then
we have 3 different sized tubs for you to choose from – 2 scoop, 3 scoop and 5 scoop. We also offer prepacked flavours in larger sizes ranging from 500ml to 4 litres for that special family treat.

Is Equi’s an independent business?

Yes, we are! Our Managing Director, David Equi, is now the third generation of the Equi family to manage the business.

What’s your best selling ice cream flavour?

Double cream vanilla of course!

Who exactly is Sophie of Sophie’s Crunch fame?

When David Equi’s first daughter, Sophie, was born he named an exciting new honeycomb ice cream after her – she’s now 23!

Are your ice creams suitable for vegetarians?
