Ice cream is one of the most beloved desserts. Almost everyone loves ice creams. The cold scoops of sweetness melt in your mouth as soon as you take a bite, or if you lick it. Ice creams are famous world over, but there are many variations of ice cream available in different countries. Today we will take a look at famous ice creams from around the world.
1. Mochi from Japan
Mochi ice cream is made from pounded rice (mochi) that has an ice cream filling. The mochi ice cream is a small round ball of the rice and ice cream, which is dusted with corn starch, which keeps it from being sticky. Although having its origins in Japan, Mochi is now popular in America, Europe, and Africa.
2. Spaghettieis from Germany
Spaghettieis is a German ice cream preparation made to look like spaghetti. Vanilla ice cream is extruded through a spaetzle press, which gives it an appearance of spaghetti. This is then placed over whipped cream, and then topped with strawberry sauce to give an appearance of tomato sauce. Grated coconut or almond flakes, or white chocolate is used to give an appearance of Parmesan cheese. It was created in 1960 by Dario Fontanella in Mannheim, Germany.
3. Dondruma from Turkey
Dondruma literally means freezing in Turkish. Dondruma originated in the city of Maras. Dondruma is unlike any other ice cream, that is because it is very thick and chewy. It owes this characteristic to two natural ingredients – Salec and Mastic. It is generally available at street vendors and in stores. Vendors tease the customers by serving it on a cone on a stick and then taking away the Dondruma by rotating it around, before giving it to the customer. If you visit a Dondruma vendor keep this in mind, it’s done playfully.
