Concept of Icecream

Icecream is one thingI can’t resist! Can you? But do you know the ice creams which you have everyday have different names altogether we speculate under the same category but they do have a difference

I have brought to you some of the popular rolled ice cream from around the world.

Rolled Icecream

A fascinating concept to most, rolled-up strips of ice cream is actually a very common street food in Thailand, Malaysia, Cambodia, and the Philippines. Even more surprising is that the entire process — pouring the ice cream mixture, chopping, mixing add-ins (like strawberries and Oreos), and perfectly spiraling the ice cream — only takes about two minutes. Isn’t it amazing?

Soft Serve

A summertime classic in the U.S., soft-serve was first created way back in the 1930s. It gets its super-smooth texture from air that’s introduced as the ingredients are frozen.It has only just two flavours ;chocolate and vanilla, it’s most often served in a cone and then dipped in chocolate or rainbow sprinkles.  

Frozen Yogurt

More popular in the U.S. especially, frozen yogurt got its mainstream debut in 1981. It’s based on the model of soft-serve but is lower in fat and offers a tangy taste. 

Snow Cream

When you order ice cream in Taiwan and you’ll get a dish of heavenly, fluffy sweets. After freezing a giant cube of milk and water, ice cream makers shaping it into insanely thin strips and then top it with boba, fresh fruit, sweetened condensed milk, chocolate, and more. 

Gelato

Italian gelato ripples and forms imperfect scoops because it is so much denser than standard American ice cream. That’s because it contains a higher volume of milk than cream, and it’s churned at a slower rate, which means less air is incorporated. There also tends to be no egg involved, so that the flavor is more intense and pure.

Kulfi

Ice cream in India is more like custard than anything else. It’s thick and dense and takes longer to melt, which makes it perfect for serving on a stick. Flavors are more on the savory side, with options like saffron, cardamom, and rose.

Sorbet

There’s no dairy in this fruit-forward frozen treat, making it denser and much richer in taste than traditional ice cream. Sometimes there’s even alcohol in the recipe to lower the freezing temperature and create its popular, soft-yet-icy texture. While it’s become popular in the U.S., it’s been around in the U.K., France, and Australia for even longer.

Falooda

While this looks like a savory noodle dish, it is, in fact, ice cream from Iran. Blended with a mixture of rose water, sugar, and lime juice, these rice noodles are a perfect frozen treat. 

Dondurma

Turkish ice cream is like nothing you’ve had before. The mixture includes salep flour and mastic, which make it thick and chewy, almost like taffy. But it’s still malleable. It just has to be consistently churned and pulled. 

Granita


Born in Sicily, this icy treat is a blend of sugar, water, and various flavorings from fruit, nuts, and herbs — like strawberry, almond, and mint. Its crystalized texture makes it best for eating with a spoon from a cup or bowl. 

Mochi

In Japan, dollops of ice cream are wrapped in sweet and sticky rice dough so you can eat it with your hands. Believe us when we say these cute bites — most often available in green tea, red bean, vanilla, and strawberry — are totally addictive.
