For a Fruity Ice-Cream Experience
This review is also available on burrp!
A new icecream outlet in Bangalore, having almost 8 branches already claims to use 100% natural fruit and not a trace of any synthetic ingredients and preservatives.
Have been postponing the visit to this place, me and my friend finally made an ad-hoc decision to try it out. We tried the one in Jayanagar 4th block.. Not a big one though, looked like a house converted to the ice cream parlor.
It’s a small place having around 4-5 tables, walls painted in green (not all that striking and appealing) and a big screen TV on the opposite wall.
They let us taste the ice creams like how they do in a gelato outlet. Found a few new varieties like gulkand, custard apple, tender coconut flavors. Apart from those new flavors, we also noticed they had the kulfi kinda flavors like kaju draksh, khajoor badaam and kesar pista.
Tru Frut classifies their category of ice creams into classic, cool country and connoisseur. I tried strawberry and the fig flavor. Initially tasted good, but, later I kinda found some powdery stuff in the ice cream which made not relish it much. And yeah, I did find small pieces of strawberry and fig.
The ice cream is priced higher – one scoop of vanilla will cost 40 bucks!!! And guess what?? It doesn’t end there. We also get to pay 12.5% extra VAT!!!
In the small chat that we had franchise owner, he said, the ice cream is imported from Sharjah. Its not the powder they get n mix it with milk here… they import the ice cream as it is from UAE.
All in all, an ok experience. A tryable place during the summer. One could hop in here to try the new flavors which is generally not found in other ice cream parlors.
Tru Frut is located @ 616/2, 31st Cross, 10th 'A' Main Road, 4th Block, Jayanagar, Bangalore
