Bangalore is privileged to experience first hand the range of ice creams, sorbets and desserts specially crafted by the Mövenpick Maîtres Glaciers with creativity and attention to detail. Their ice creams for me has always been synonymous with creamy Swiss ice creams I have had overseas and finally Bangalore gets their very own Mövenpick ice cream destination.
Their ice cream flavours are quite the collection with Blueberry cheesecake, Banana, Caramelita, Creme Brulee, Stracciatella being some of the most sought after across the world. If you love coffee then don’t miss my favourite here – Espresso Croquant. For the first time, they also have Coconut ice cream which I am sure is going to please the Indian palate.
The premium ice cream brand is brought in India by Tarun Sikka, Director, Nectar Hospitality who runs it with the same zeal and enthusiasm that goes into the making of each robust flavor in Switzerland. Mr Sikka is charting a steady expansion plan for Mövenpick in India while maintaining the brand’s premium nature and quality.
Speaking about the Bengaluru store, Tarun says,”Mövenpick ice creams embody the Swiss ethos of perfection, creativity and attention to detail. From its inception, Mövenpick brand is committed to use natural ingredients for its range of products like Bourbon vanilla pods from the tropical forests of Madagascar, the finest cocoa beans from the Maracaibo region of Venezuela or Canadian maple syrup from Quebec.
The ice creams starting from Rs.200 per scoop may seem a bit steep, trust me it is worth the price for giving into “temptation”!
