Vuelta a Espana trophy ... looks familiar

Hi

Recognise it? :) Is it an ice cream or a trophy?

The new Vuelta a Espana trophy that will be awarded to the winner of this year’s race has gained a bit more attention than organisers anticipated after Twitter users pointed out its uncanny resemblance to the logo used by consumer goods giant Unilever on its ice cream products throughout the world. It may also seem familiar to anyone in the UK who follows the BBC’s Masterchef programme.

From the picture you posted I'm almost 100% sure it's a trophy, you can see that it has a base, I don't think they would be able to make icecream stand up like that, or be see through.

Maybe Heston could but not sure anyone else could.

So based on that, I'm pretty sure it's a trophy.

Close but no cigar...

The clear bit is ice and the red bit is Spanish beef sausage[-2% fat free].

Edible trophies! Without the display stand just think how many of those suckers you could fit into an esky 8)
