We've Got The Scoop On Chennai's First Single-Origin Chocolate Ice Cream Festival

Shruti posted on 16 May

What’s unique about this festival is that the chocolate used is made from Indian cocoa beans! It’s 100 percent organic, preservative-free and made using liquid nitrogen.

Loco Over Cocoa

196 Degrees Below is a dessert lab popular for its ice cream that uses liquid nitrogen… Combine that with the chocolate makers at Cocoatraits and it really is a match made in heaven. Their latest venture is the Ice Cream Festival that features the Indian single-origin chocolate ice cream. They tell us that it actually is the first of its kind in India! Instead of imported cocoa beans from places like Africa, these are grown here in our very own South India! Get a variety of interesting combinations of ice creams with rosemary, Indian spices, peanut butter and even raw chocolate.

Choco-Licious

We think this festival comes at the perfect time now that it’s summer. So keep calm and slurp on. They use liquid nitrogen to quickly freeze all the ingredients { you can even have a look at how they make this}, perfect for Boomerang/ Insta stories. For comfort flavours we recommend Organic Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream and Organic Coffee+ Vanilla Dark Chocolate Ice Cream.

Feel like experimenting? Try the one with rosemary { they use bits of the herb!} or Dark Chocolate Thandai Ice Cream { with cardamom, pepper and cinnamon for a spicy kick}. The ice cream featuring raw chocolate is a bit more acidic than the rest and has quite an interesting flavour. Oh vegans, you can ask for some of these scoops where they use soy milk instead of regular milk. And fitness enthusiasts you can dig into their sugar free Keto- Friendly Dark Chocolate Ice cream. Each scoop costs about INR 199 and come in cups specially designed for this particular kind of ice cream! So “cool” no?

The festival is on till June 30.
