Invent a flavour of ice cream

Invent a flavour of ice cream to celebrate our 15th birthday!

Summer is here! The sun is shining in the sky, and we have the perfect competition for you…

To commemorate our 15th birthday, we’re inviting you to create a delicious flavour of the nation’s favourite dessert, ice cream! This ice cream will be extra special though, as we would like it to be reflective of The Real Mary King’s Close. We’re not looking for anything inedible, so no “gardy loo” – think traditional Scottish tastes, a flavour you associate with Edinburgh, or even the plague doctor’s herbs.

Our panel of judges will select the best flavour, with the winning ice cream produced by S Luca Dairy Ice Cream, and served at The Real Mary King’s Close.

The lucky winner will get:

  • A private tour of The Real Mary King’s Close
  • A tour of the S Luca Dairy Ice Cream factory in Musselburgh to see their flavour being made
  • A year’s supply of free ice cream
