    I must say the weirdest icecream I have eaten was a azuki flavor in Japan. It's not so much the taste than the texture. Since it still had some of the bean skin.

    Re: The Frozen Dessert Thread!

    Ahh, yes~ I actually quite like azuki flavour. I think the bean in the ice cream gives it a bit more flavour, and the added texture makes it a bit more special. I normally don't like red bean paste, but I like the ice cream, since it's not too sweet compared to the paste.

    Hmm... yesterday I tried lychee rose flavoured ice cream from Passionflower! It was quite unique and the flavours went well together. Apart from the flavour, I think the texture made my tongue go weird... I'm quite fond of the Asian flavours such as green tea (yum~ ) and black sesame as well! I want to try pumpkin, taro, sticky rice and pandan one day...

    That sounds yum, icey! <3 Never tried that before, but I do loooove a good green tea ice cream.

    My recent frozen treat obsession: Magnum bars. These finally made their way over to the states and I must say that they're pretty damn good. The double caramel and the almond are my favorites.

    Aaa, Magnum~
    Magnum are so delicious, even the classic one (a simple combination of vanilla ice cream + chocolate) is awesome. The size is big and the price is quite expensive, but it has a nice quality. My mom loves almond, I like everyone of them except the cappucino one (the latest one, that is).

    I also like McDonald's McFlurry ice cream. My most favorite flavors are the caramel and chocolate. For chocolate you're only given a chocolate milk powder with a vanilla ice cream, though, but it's still awesome. >__<

    Re: The Frozen Dessert Thread!

    I know, right? It's all about the Belgian chocolate on the outside. I'd love to try the cappuccino flavor, but sadly we don't have it here.

    And speaking of McDonalds, right now they're offering a Rolo McFlurry. Anyone tried this yet? I haven't had a chance, but it does sound pretty good. Rolo was one of my favorite candies growing up, but I don't really see them around too much anymore (but of course that could be just because I'm not really looking for them )

    Re: The Frozen Dessert Thread!

    and I thought magnum was an american brand !
    Actually I prefer sorbet to cream, although when I was student in Toulouse, I loved the dark chocolate flavour from Octave shop. That's one of the best ice cream I have ever eaten.
    As for brand, the frozen desserts from Picard are usually really good and for a reasonable price

    Hmm, I think so? Where is Walls' HQ anyway? But Magnum are using Belgian chocolate indeed. Made it simply perfect. :3
    I wonder if you guys have this place called "Magnum Cafe" in your country. There you'll get to choose the topping for your Magnum ice cream. Expensive, true, but the price was worth the pleasure. XD

    Oh, right! I tried this before. It tasted kinda weird personally, but it's actually delicious. My mom also likes green beans ice cream. XD

    Re: The Frozen Dessert Thread!

    I've got to say, my favorite frozen desert is an Indian one called Kulfi. My mom made it for me all the time when I was a kid, and recently I've been getting it from some local Indian grocery stores. I love it



    depending what kind you have though you may not enjoy it.

    Wooo!! Green tea ice cream is LOOOVE~

    I have recently discovered the wonders of snowy moon cakes!! When you let them melt a bit, the skin is kinda like mochi... and the inside is solid, but then it's powdery when you bite into it. I'm so addicted to these, I've been eating at least one a day!
    Has anyone else tried one?

    Re: The Frozen Dessert Thread!

    I am ashamed to say that I am very conventional when it comes to ice cream. I usually have the normal flavors, rarely try anything unusual with that.... I tried a dark chocolate one that was pretty good though. I also tried one (suspiro limeno) which I have no idea into what it would translate too. Too sweet for my taste though. Still, 99% of the time I order either chocolate or vanilla. As much as I do think mcdonalds serves the world food among the mainstream fast food restaurants (burger king and wendys are far better although perhaps still not quite actually delicious) I admit I LOVE their ice cream to a fault. Sundays, mcflurries... awesome stuff, there one redeemable feature mcdonalds has. Wendy's frosties are pretty close too (although I have only tried the chocolate one). I also remember going to a place where they served ice cream mixed with chocolate bars and things of the sort but I never thought the actual ice cream was good. I guess they tried to cover mediocre ice cream with cookie crumbles and chocolate bar pieces lol.

    Froyo. It's become quite a big thing over here around last couple of years. Now there are froyo places popping up everywhere. I'm quite fond of the traditional fruity flavours such as mango and strawberry. I've tried the more unconventional flavours such as green tea and taro, but frankly I'm not too big of a fan, since the yoghurt part makes it a bit sour and it just doesn't go too well with the green tea or taro, in my opinion. I like how froyo places has a huge variety of toppings as well~ Every time, I would get the fruity pop balls.
