Share Happy! Have an Ola ice cream!

Taste the fun side of life

Mention ice cream and most people think of the OLA. The brand with the big red heart logo is behind many of the much loved ice cream classics, - from indulgent treats like Magnum, Cornetto and Gino Ginelli, to the refreshing fruit tastes of Solero and and Fruttare, the fun and excitement of Paddlepop, and the family favourite Rich n Creamy.

Making you happy

Few foods are guaranteed to put a smile on your face like ice cream. And now we have proof that eating ice cream actually makes you happy by lighting up the "pleasure zones" in the brain. (This was proven in a study conducted in April 2005 by Unilever at the Centre for Neuroimaging Sciences, Institute of Psychiatry London).
Whist ice cream should always be fun, we aware that people are becoming a lot more health conscious and as a result we have lowered sugar and fat levels, increased fruit content and offer smaller sizes for smaller appetites, as well as maintaining old favourites. All our ice cream now offer full nutritional information - energy, fat, protein, and carbohydrate levels – so you can be the judge of how and when to indulge.
