When my husband and I were in England several years ago we had vanilla ice cream cones at a lovely city park in Statford on Avon. It was soooo rich and creamy. I’ve never tasted any ice cream in the US that comes close to it. It must have been made with heavy cream only. Also, I don’t thing there is such a thing as 2% milk, much less skim milk in England. We had a breakfast buffet at our hotel and they had heavy, heavy cream(it almost would not pour out of the pitcher) and whole milk which was like half and half.
