If you love your chocolate bars and ice creams, we are sure you must have heard of the Naturals Ice Cream for now. For the longest time, I was inquisitive about this brand of ice creams bars and was fascinated to see the images of the flavours in their advertisements. One fine day, while on a brunch date with my girly BFFs, I saw their ad on one of the billboards. And that was it. I decided that no matter what, I am not returning home today till I try out a scoop of one of their flavours I had been so longing to have.
GPS to the rescue and we figured out a Naturals Ice Cream outlet that was about a 20-minute drive from where we were. All excited, we hopped into the car and went on to try out our favourite colourful scoops from their assortment of ice cream flavours. What a day it was. And, there has been no looking back since then. Naturals Ice Cream remains our favourite ice cream brand to relish and devour some luxurious melting scoops of ice cream whenever we are in the mood for dessert. Read on as we share with you some of the most delicious flavours to try out.
8 ‘Must Try-Out’ Flavours from Naturals Ice Cream
1. Sitaphal Ice Cream
If you have not tried Sitaphal ice cream, you haven’t eaten good enough desserts in your lifetime. Sitaphal is the Custard Apple in English and its ice cream form tastes amazing. These days a lot of ice cream brands have come up with their own Sitaphal ice creams but Naturals ice cream does it the best. This flavour deserves a special trip planned to the Naturals ice cream outlet just to devour this ice cream.
2. Tender Coconut Ice Cream
Coconut water is passé. These are the times for some Coconut Ice Cream. The Naturals tender coconut ice cream tastes exactly the same way a fresh layer of coconut malai from a coconut vendor tastes, just a lot more tasteful and creamier. The ice cream just melts into your mouth and leaves a lingering taste of coconut to relish for long.
3. Chikoo Ice Cream
We all have peeled a chikoo fruit and nibbled it like a squirrel. Well, the flavour now comes in ice cream. Naturals’ chikoo ice cream tastes exactly like the fruit and is rich with mouth-watering chikoo taste.
4. Roasted Almond Ice Cream
A lot of ice cream brands like Amul, Gianis, Coco berry make Almond Ice Creams but none tastes like Naturals Roasted Almond Ice Cream. It is loaded with roasted nuts and a strong flavour that melts in the mouth. The cream is thick and flavourful and is going to satiate your taste buds craving some nutty flavours, with every bite.
5. Mango Ice Cream
We all have eaten a mango ice cream a zillion times in our life but Naturals Mango ice cream is a refreshing change. They use premium mangoes for the ice cream, hence the real and exquisite taste. If you have a weakness for the fruit, you are going to love their natural mango ice cream to bits.
6. Chocolate Ice Cream
It is exactly what the name suggests – a mouthful of chocolate in every bite. One can easily have an entire tub of this ice cream without feeling too chocolaty. It is a light, mushy chocolate flavour that is not going to just fulfill your heart and tummy but all your receptive senses.
7. Kesar Pista Ice Cream
Again Kesar Pista is no rarity of an ice cream flavour, but with Naturals, it just happens to taste differently. Bursting with nutritious pistachios, this ice cream tastes luxurious and brings about an old world of flavours with each bite.
8. Malai Ice Cream
This is an innovative flavour option for an ice cream. It has a thick consistency and you actually feel like you are taking in thick chunks of malai into your mouth while eating it; hats off to the one who came up with this ice cream flavour.
Naturals Ice Cream – Things to Know About the Brand
This is one of the leading, healthiest and the most authentic ice cream brands in India. It is an Indian Ice Cream brand and currently operates through 129 outlets all across India.
The brand is owned by Mangalore-based Raghunandan Srinivas Kamath, who first opened an ice cream parlour in Juju, Mumbai in 1984. He has always stressed upon the unsurpassed quality benchmarks and artisanal flavour options for his range of ice creams.
For those unaware, Naturals ice creams are made from only fruits, milk and sugar. The brand is particular about the premium quality of the buffalo milk that they use in manufacturing their ice creams. The fruits are absolutely freshly and ethically sourced. There is no use of artificial sweeteners or preservatives in their ice creams. Hence, the shelf life is quite low too. The ice creams can be stored for only 45 days, so it is better to just gulp down large scoops of it as soon as you get some home.
Do not confuse Naturals with any of the other ice cream brands that have the use of the word nature or natural in them; it is just a generic usage. The original Naturals Ice Cream is a real treat and you would only know the difference once you experience their experience.
