10 unique ice cream flavors you must try!
Ice creams are like the perfect companion. Be it a moody day or a chill day, icecreams can easily bring a smile to your face. And with its ‘n’ number of flavours, ice cream tops the list of desserts. While vanilla and chocolate are considered as the supreme flavours, there are some flavours that have become popular over time. Here’s a list of icecreams that have become fan favourites over the years:
1. Mint Chocolate
An ice cream that was exclusively invented for the Royal Family, it was initially named Mint Royale. This flavour consists of chocolate chips and peppermint. A perfect blend of sweetness and freshness, this green beauty can definitely lighten your mood.
2. Chocolate Chip Cookie dough
Another fan favourite, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough is a revamped version of vanilla ice cream. It is a combination of chocolate, chocolate chips and vanilla. The smoothness of chocolate and vanilla mix with the crunchiness of chocolate chips makes for a delightful treat.
An Italian dessert, Neapolitan ice cream has three flavours in it: chocolate, vanilla and strawberry. The dessert’s origin dates back to the 19th century and was initially made using strawberry, vanilla and pistachio, to represent the flag of Italy. The flavours were arranged side by side in a container. But today Neapolitan ice cream comes as a single scoop, with all three flavours blended together.
4. Pumpkin Spice
This ice cream flavour is for everyone who relishes the taste of vegetable ice creams. Made with pumpkin puree, condensed milk and aromatic spices, Pumpkin Spice is a desi flavour that can be made easily at home.
Mango ice cream is the perfect summer delight. On a particularly sunny day, a scoop of mango ice cream is all you need to make you feel refreshed. This nice, creamy ice cream can also remind you of all the happy times you have had.
Also known as Green Tea ice cream, this is one of the healthiest ice creams out there. Matcha ice cream is a Japanese dessert, laced with caramelized pecans. It is a well-balanced flavour with the sweetness of sugar and bitterness of Matcha powder (made from Green Tea leaves).
7. Pralines n Cream
Yet another version of vanilla ice cream, praline and cream consists of vanilla, pralines (a sugar candy made from sugar syrup) and pecans. The sweetness of praline with the crunchiness of pecans balances out the flavour well.
Coffee ice cream can be made easily at home using coffee powder, condensed milk and double cream. This ice cream has the bitterness of coffee and the sweetness of cream. Traditionally a European dessert, this ice cream is a fan favourite in the rest of the world as well.
9. Rocky Road
Who would have thought that chocolate, marshmallows and walnuts would’ve made a killer combo? Well, in 1929, William Dreyers did, and thus came Rocky Road. The ice cream has the velvety texture of chocolate, sweetness of marshmallows and crispiness of nuts.
10. Salted Caramel
A flavour much similar to butterscotch, in terms of its texture, ingredients and appeal, salted caramel takes a detour from the traditional butterscotch by adding salt. This is one flavour where sweetness and saltiness are interwoven, giving it a unique taste.
