ICONIC Laura ice cream company Golden North has beaten out 12 big-name competitors to be rated the number one ice cream for the fifth consecutive year.
The number one Canstar Blue rating acknowledges Golden North for having the most satisfied customers for their ice cream tubs.
The SA company pipped well-known brands like Cadbury, Peters, Bulla, Sara Lee, Woolworths, Coles, Haagen-Dazs and Ben & Jerry's to take out the award.
Golden North have been making ice cream in the regional town of Laura since 1923 in the same modest factory.
Originally owned by the Bowker family, Golden North is still locally-owned and are best known for their popular Giant Twins and Simply Indulge tub range.
"For a relatively small and local producer, it really is fantastic to see us beat out larger brands on a national scale," said Golden North Marketing and Export Sales director Trevor Pomery.
"To do it five years in a row now is just incredible, and a great tribute to our rich South Australian heritage.
"These awards stand as an endorsement to our commitment to continue to produce top quality local product for the people of Australia."
Canstar Blue's Megan Birot said Golden North had done a stellar job to continue the winning streak.
"Golden North has rated best ice cream tubs for the fifth consecutive year which is an outstanding achievement for a regional brand hailing from SA," she said.
"Consumers have given this iconic Aussie brand five-star reviews for taste, value for money and overall satisfaction.
"The market for frozen desserts is very competitive and the fact that Golden North has outperformed a whopping 12 other big-name brands and conglomerates on these important drivers of satisfaction is a sweet victory."
