It doesn’t matter if it’s a hot day or a cold day. When it comes to ice cream, every day is a good day to have them. Nowadays, with thorough researches in the way to improve our quality of life, we are indeed spoilt to have better things in life and this applies even to our ice creams too. No kidding! Kindori is such example, and compared to many other brands of ice creams, it is one of the brand that has the most varieties of ice cream imaginable. Kindori has even gone as far as to Malaysianized its flavours to suit our tastebuds. Why do we say that, you ask? Well, whoever have heard of a Teh Tarik ice cream for instance?
Kindori ice cream boasts of more than 40 different varieties of ice cream, more centralised towards fruity flavours such as grape, kiwi, cempedak (yes, cempedak), durian, blueberry, mango, rock melon, water melon raspberry, strawberry, papaya, banana and more. Yep, even the fruits sound very Malaysian indeed.
However, Kindori ice cream uses a cutting-edge ice cream technology that was developed in Japan some 10 – 15 years ago to ‘blast-freeze’ carefully selected, fresh seasonal fruits which is then blended with a secret fresh-milk base to deliver these varieties of healthy, natural ice cream.
Yep, that also means that these ice creams are actually good for you so you don’t have to feel guilty when you indulge on these lovely flavours. Even the American Cancer Society acknowledges that ‘frozen food can often be more nutritious than fresh foods because they are often picked ripe and quickly frozen whereas fresh food may lose some of their nutrients in the time between harvesting and consumption.
What this means for Kindori is that the ice creams there are frozen solid within minutes, thus, preserving all enzymes, vitamins and nutrients in the ice creams and also make it impossible for bacteria, yeasts and molds to grow. Phew! Who knows that ice cream making would involve so much of thought? No wonder these ice creams have been quite a hit in both Japan and Taiwan. Aren’t we lucky that they decided to come by.
Okay, all those mumbo-jumbo probably don’t matter if they are not yummy. So, how do we like the Kindori ice cream? Yep, and so we took a bite off Kindori’s mango-flavoured ice cream. And loved it. You will love it if you like your ice cream to be extremely milky because that’s what stood out most when we tried the mango flavour ice cream. We like how the fruitiness of the ice cream blends in so well with the milky texture. As we have more bites further, we realised that the milky texture seem to slightly overpower the fruit but because we love milk, so we enjoyed it.
Another thing we realised was this – the ice cream didn’t really melt. You know after awhile, the cream will usually leak down the cone and over your fingers? That did not happen to our Kindori ice cream and if we didn’t understand what ‘blast-freeze’ meant, we did now… and appreciate it a lot. Also, if we didn’t know anything about this ‘blast-freeze’ technology, chances are, we might freak out, wondering why our ice cream didn’t melt…
Overall, yum! Yum! Yum! We wanna have them again and hopefully try every single flavours they have at Kindori just because they have soooooooooooooooo veryyyyyyyyyyy manyyyyyyyyyyy. Kindori Ice Cream is at a more premiere price though so you may want to save it for a special occasion – like a getting a job promotion, or getting first in class, ya’know, that sort of thing. So work hard. Play hard. Eat more ice creams!
P/S: If you’ve been wondering about the saying that goes – if it’s healthy, then it’s not yummy? Kindori Ice Cream failed in this test so we believe that perhaps, this saying must be a myth. What we love most is how Kindori have put a lot of thoughts in creating the products. By some people’s standard, it may be a little strange, but we give it to them for being adventurous and daring to try different things and most importantly, although the brand originated from Japan, it adapted to the Malaysian culture to provide local flavours such as cempedak and durian. Very well done, we’d like to say.
And as for you, how would you usually like your ice cream? Did you enjoy the Kindori Ice Cream? We like to know.
