Anna may want to build a snowman in Frozen on Sunday, 6 December, at 19:00, but the chances of ever seeing a white Christmas in South Africa seem to be about the same as Leonardo DiCaprio winning an Oscar. Fortunately for us, that just means there are plenty of ways to cool off this summer.
I mean, how cool would it be to win one of 40 R1000 takealot.com vouchers in the Animania Dubsmash competition? This week’s theme is “Frozen”, so why not find an appropriate clip and give your lip-syncing skills a go?
Alternatively, it’s hard to beat an ice-cold drink on a sweltering summer day or a dip in the frigid ocean when the beating African sun gets too much. However, still the most pleasurable way to cool down, whether it’s at a party, on the beach or simply at home on the couch watching Sunday’s Animania Festival feature, Frozen, is ice cream.
Cone, cup or bowl, ice cream is one of those things that never gets old. From the youngest toddler to the oldest great-grandparent, everyone likes ice cream. But why is this?
Well, aside from the fact that there are an inconceivable number of flavours to choose from, there are also many different types of ice cream or ice cream equivalents.
While the history of ice-cream is as messy as a toddler with a three-scoop waffle cone, forms of iced desserts can be traced back to the Roman Emperor Nero, who would send slaves into the mountains to mix with nectar, fruit pulp and honey.
These days, there are many different types of ice cream, from traditional hard ice cream to soft-serve, Italian style Gelato, French ice cream, gluten-free ice cream and the recently resurgent frozen yoghurt or FroYo.
Any way you scoop it, there’s a frozen delight out there for everyone and a flavour to suit.
The Animania festival runs from 4 December – 12 January on M-Net Movies Family with all your animated favourites airing all day, every day.
