10 Reasons Why You'll Scream For Some Ice Cream

Temperatures in the city are soaring and we’re left all hot and bothered. Thankfully though, there’s ice cream! And by ice cream, we don’t mean those synthetic tasting, congealed vegetable fat nasties that are sold in supermarkets. We mean real, good ice cream churned out of milk, and made with natural ingredients. Old and new ice cream points are serving up scoops, sundaes, sorbets and cones. And we suggest you get in line if you want to breeze through summer. LBB suggests that you keep cool and try these ice cream parlours in Bangalore.

Corner House

Bangalore’s favourite dessert hangout also does a range of ice creams. Scoop up classic flavours like Vanilla Chocolate Chip, Rum & Raisin, Fig & Honey, Black Currant and Butterscotch and you won’t even notice the summer heat. They even have a green campaign going on where you can bring your own bowl.

Naturals

The popular Mumbai brand has made its mark in Bangalore since it set up shop a few years ago. Their lineup of creamy ice creams include customer favourites like roasted almond, walnut, mango and custard apple. Do look out for their seasonal and festival specials, like the Malai Khurma they have for Eid, they are worth a try. Or summer specials such as the Strawberries and Cream, or the Alphonso (we recommend you lug a tub back home just for yourself).

Cream Stone

For patrons, this place bags top spot in rankings of the best ice cream joint. Yes, it is set in (cream) stone, they say. On a trip here, do try fan favourites like Choco Almond Fudge, Tiramisu and a chocoholic’s favourite – Willy Wonka, that’s made with scoops of chocolate ice cream, choco chips, pastry and fudge (sounds like the chocolate factory in itself).
