EKSELENCE: New European gourmet ice-cream range
What we enjoyed:
- The combination of the milk and fruity flavours
- The texture of the different components (e.g. coconut and almonds)
- The natural taste of the fruits used
- The generous portions for the sorbet’s price point
What we did not enjoy:
- The sweetness of the wild berries
- Not enough portion for the price point of the individual sticks
Be it rain or shine, ice cream is always a choice. To add on to the many choices of ice cream out there, Europe’s most splendid range of ice-cream by EKSELENCE® has joined the spread as well.
EKSELENCE® is made from the richest of all creams, fresh whole milk and egg yolk, combined with carefully selected local ingredients sourced from the finest purveyors throughout Europe, and is crafted in the heart of the lush green country of Latvia.
With every bite into the different ice cream flavours, you will be able to notice that special attention has been paid to every detail.
Mostly priced from $12.90, EKSELENCE has a range of Mini Classic pack which contains Chocolate coated and Almond chocolate coated sticks.
The ice cream has a good balance of Chocolate and vanilla and with the Almond bits, there is a crunch with every bite which tastes like genuine Almonds rather than processed ones.
Other flavours include White Chocolate & Raspberry, Pistachio, Coconut & Almonds, Raspberry Pomegranate, Caramel, Mango Sorbet with Vanilla and Wild Berries with Vanilla.
For those who like the earthy tones of Pistachio or the bite of Coconut flakes, you would enjoy those ice cream choices as the EKSELENCE ones have a good mix of the Latvian cream and milk, along with the ingredients, which ensures that the ice cream sticks are not too sweet.
A personal favourite would be the Mango Sorbet as the tangy sour and sweet notes of the rich Mango, goes perfectly well with the Vanilla flavour. True to their description, you can taste the natural flavours of the Mango and Vanilla portions.
The Wild Berries sorbet, on the other hand, has a sharp sweet taste that pairs well with the Vanilla. But when devoured by itself, it could be a little too much to handle.
The fruity and natural notes of the Mango with Vanilla sorbet goes well. Many fruit flavoured ice cream scoops has a thick gimmicky taste which does not go down smoothly after a few bites.
However, because of the natural ingredients used the line of EKSELENCE ice creams, the ice cream does not leave the consumer feeling surfeited.
Due to the light taste, unique textures to the different ingredients and pop of colours, the ice cream scoops are worth the price points.
While all of the ice cream choices can be found at major supermarkets and hypermarkets, the Raspberry Pomegranate and Caramel Double-layer Chocolate ones are only exclusive to Cold Storage. They are priced from $13.90.
