Australian Ice-Cream??? You'll also find the 'Australian Homemade Icecream' (& chocolates) chain of stores all over NL, but chats to their staff and a perusal of their website seem to indicate that they have nothing to do with Australia. In fact, the websites makes the startlingly hilarious claim that 'Australian Homemade ice cream and chocolates come from traditional recipes prepared in the outback'!! Yeah, right... in a traditional outback airconditioned room, with milk from traditional outback dairy cows, I presume!!
