A new shop pledging to offer “some of the best ice cream in the UK” has applied to open in Cambridge.

Spoonstruck has primarily sold its ice cream at markets around Cambridgeshire so far but now wants to take over a shop at 6 King’s Parade, formerly occupied by Inner Space Cambridge, a meditation centre and book shop.

In its application to Cambridge City Council, Spoonstruck’s owners said after trying a lot of “mediocre ice cream”, they started to make their own “proper ice cream”.

They said: “We want to make – and believe most people want to eat – ice creams where flavours are intense and not cluttered with aftertastes from cheap ‘tastes like’ artificial additives.

“Chocolate should be intensely chocolatey, pistachio shouldn’t taste like almonds, subtle flavour combinations should work in tandem without overpowering one another.

“We believe great tasting products can be made from simple, quality ingredients and we care about where they’re sourced.”

The owners want to repaint the outside of the shop pink to match the company’s branding.

In planning documents, they add: “Changes to the internal layout will not impact any of the historic fabric of the building.

“The external fabric of the building is proposed to remain unchanged.”

The council will determine if the plans can proceed.
