Cool off: 5 x spectacular ice creams from all over the world

Must Try

Nothing wrong with a rocket or a pear ice cream, but there are also a lot of spectacular ice creams made in this world. From Halo-Halo from the Philippines to Booza from the Middle East: we list the coolest.

5 x spectacular ice creams

Booza from the Middle East

Chances are you’ve never heard of booza . It is elastic (!) ice, originating from the Middle East and getting its elasticity from mastic , resin that comes from the mastic tree.

The traditional taste of booza is Kashta (or Ashta) . It is a mix of  orange blossom water and rose water. It is said to be the oldest type of ice in the world. Old or not, the stretchy ice cream has now reached Brooklyn, where it’s served at the hip Republic of Booza ice cream parlor . Biggest plus: it melts less quickly than regular ice cream. And of course you can play with it endlessly.

Kakigõri: Japanese shaved ice

We don’t really know whether to think Kakigõri is beautiful or ugly, but the fact is that we keep staring at this ice cream. Kakigõri is Japanese shaved ice, which is served in a special high tower. Syrups of  sakura leaves (cherry blossom) and toppings such as  red bean paste ,  matcha  and cream are poured over it. But also  mochi and shiratama dango (sweet rice dumplings).

In any case, they serve the most beautiful specimens at Kakiyuki in Kuala Lumpur. In the Netherlands you can sometimes find it at Restaurant Taiko in the Conservatorium Hotel. And the ladies of Neko Jusu serve lemonade at festivals. Their version is made from – of course! – their own lemonade, topped off with coconut milk, matcha cream, fresh fruit and condensed milk.


Halo-Halo from the Philippines

No, that Beyoncé record didn’t stick: Halo-Halo is the official name of a dessert from the Philippines. It consists of several layers: canned fruit, beans or even sweet potato (purple or orange), shaved ice, a scoop of ice cream and condensed milk. And then stir: Halo-Halo does not mean ‘mix-mix’ for nothing…

Soft ice cream with cotton candy in London

At Milk Train Café in London they know how to make an Instagrammable ice cream. Their ice creams look like a unicorn and cotton candy clash, just as a rainbow appears in the sky. If that makes any sense . Whether this big bite is really tasty or especially very desirable among young girls, we dare not say.

Watermelon ice cream from Dominique Ansel

Pastry chef Dominique Ansel is not only the inventor of the world famous Cronut , cookie shot glasses and the DKA , he also makes spectacular ice creams. His best ice cream creation is the What-A-Melon Soft Serve . It consists of a perfect slice of watermelon, filled with watermelon soft ice cream. There are even black seeds on the melon, made of chocolate.

The ice cream is for sale at Dominique Ansel Bakery in New York.
