14 Reasons that will make you scream for some Ice Cream

Navya posted on 11 March

Summer’s here,  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.
