Rush Munro's - A Summer Institution

When the mercury rises as it's sure to do in Hawke's Bay over summer, it's only natural to reach for an ice cream to cool down.

Rush Munro has been a summer institution in Hawke's Bay since they first opened their doors in 1926, offering hand crafted, 100% natural ice cream.

To help you navigate the flavour station of Rush Munro ice cream (there's 24 different flavours to choose from), we've kindly done some research for you and put together a list of the top five flavours you need to try!

1. Maple Walnut
One of the great all-time ice cream match ups – maple and walnut. Made using real maple extract, not that fake syrup, and wholesome walnut pieces, here's an ice cream with rich, smoky flavours and a chunky texture. A combo made in heaven, it’ll drive you nuts.

2. Feijoa
Rush Munro’s are the only ice cream manufacturer making this Kiwi favourite. Fresh, ripe local Hawke’s Bay feijoas are blended into a lusciously creamy ice cream to give you a unique flavour and texture. Enjoy this classic autumn fruit all year round.

3. Green Tea
This ice-cream flavour was created to help you find you zen when needing that moment of calm. Easy to savour and packed with antioxidants (so it's healthy...), this is an ice-cream enjoyable for all.

4. Manuka Honey
For the ice cream connoisseur. Made using Arataki Honey manuka honey, churned constantly into Rush Munro's special dairy mix. Smooth and refined in every mouthful – sweet but not sickly. This double gold award-winning favourite captures the aromatic essence of manuka wild flowers from New Zealand’s native bush

5. Strawberries & Cream
What could be better than strawberries and cream? Bringing them together in a 100% natural ice cream of course! Tons of whole Hawke’s Bay strawberries churned constantly into Rush Munro's special diary mix to create a smooth and flavourful berry ice cream for that forever taste of summer.
