Eton mess is a dessert of English origin consisting of a mixture of strawberries, pieces of meringue and cream – traditionally served at Eton College’s annual prize-giving celebration picnic on the "Fourth of June". One story reports that the dessert was invented when a Labrador Retriever accidentally sat on a picnic basket in the back of a car on the way to a picnic. In our delicious new take on a classic, ice cream replaces the cream.
