That is made of Win. Brilliant. Do they sell the good stuff (the main brands) or is it the kind of ice creams you would get in a supermarket own range, branded to look like the good stuff but not quite as tasty?

If by main brands, you mean brands like Ben & Jerrys, Baskin Robbins, Hersheys, Oreo, or the like, those brands don’t exist here anyway. I’ve seen some specialty brands on occasion, like Cadburys, but that’s inconsistent at best.
The best local brands of ice cream are Elephant House (which also has the best ginger beer) and Cargills (which is a grocery store chain), and honestly, the chocolate ice cream by those companies exceeds most chocolate ice creams I’ve had in Canada. Plus they have flavours like fruit & nut, mango, and other local flavours that include jaggery, cashews, and other local ingredients. Those are full of Teh Yum. 🙂
So yes, they would sell the good stuff, but different good stuff than Americans or Canadians are used to. 🙂 Ice cream is a big deal here. Fully 1/3 of the freezer section, which is small anyway, is devoted to ice cream.
Ice cream is the win. So the fruit ice creams are those actually ice creams or are they sorbets?
.-= Lyra´s last blog ..Friday Finds =-.
No, they’re ice creams.
I think sorbets might be available at a place called Le Gelato or something like that, which has an outlet at Odel, but otherwise, sorbets don’t exist here.
And the fruit ice creams here, by the way? The Yum. 🙂
I’m addicted to 99’s (scroll to bottom of page here for the alleged naming of the 99. It’s wrong, but it’s a great story) – so, so simple… A cone, some soft white vanilla ice cream and half a flake stuck in the top.
The plastic football things which everyone was buying a while back don’t taste the same… Uh, yeah – this thing. Just add ingredients, kick the thing around and voila instant ice-cream-that-tastes-like-ice-cream-but-isn’t-real-ice-cream. I’ve had one for about five years, and never managed to get the mixture right.
I am, of course, completely incompetent when it comes to following recipes. Other peoples’ results will probably be better…

Is there homemade ice-cream too? And do they sell that there at the card?
.-= Ana Goncalves´s last blog ..Blossoming wisdom =-.
No, no homemade ice cream that I know of or heard of. Just the stuff you buy from grocery stores or ice cream trishaws. 🙂
It would be quite wonderful if they did, don’t you think?
Does Sri Lanka have its own brand of ice cream or at least make their own in places?

Most of the ice cream sold here is locally made. The two best brands are Elephant House (which also makes soda pop) and Cargills, which is a grocery store chain. There are other brands, of course, but they aren’t as good. 🙂
I don’t know of any shops or cafes or restaurants or whatever that make their own ice creams.
I hadn’t even heard of that plastic football ice cream making thing until you mentioned it. I guess I left Canada soon enough to not be poisoned by that kind of rubbish. 😛
Years and years and years ago, my brother bought an ice cream maker. Nothing complicated. A liner thing that you froze before you wanted to make ice cream, and then you took it out of the freezer, inserted a paddle and the to-be-ice-cream mixture, and stirred until it was frozen and smooth. It worked very well.
