My brother Hamad told me about the KDD ice cream machine, and he kept raving about how good it’s ice-cream is, how smooth the vanilla and how sweet the chocolate is. I didn’t give it much thought till the he brought it up for, like, the 17th time. I decided that I need to try it out and that I would probably need my camera to report it back in here. I’m happy to say that I wasn’t disappointed, at all.
The shop is a KDD shop, never knew such shops existed. Heard about the one in shuwaikh but somehow it did not register, I mean a KDD shop? Why?
I went in and there were a couple of guys in there paying for their cons and were about to leave. I knew I had to take pictures, and I wanted the shop all to myself, I had many questions for the seller too, so I waited. As soon as those guys exited another couple came in and asked for 2 ice-cream cons. And this kept going for a while. I asked for permission to take pictures while I wait for my turn and the seller was just too nice.
After awhile I finally was alone in the shop and I asked the guy for a mixed ice-cream con, chocolate and vanilla, but asked him to slow down the process so I could take pictures of the whole thing.
The ice-cream was delicious. Very smooth, light, and Sweeet! The vanilla, as described by my brother was creamy and light, while the chocolate was sweet and compensated for the lack of sweetness in the vanilla. The flavors complimented each others in a nice way. I loved it.
^I finished it while talking to the seller.
I asked the seller about the secret behind the ice-cream, and how come all the customers were grownups. Men with long beards, young, middle aged, and even an old man entered and asked for ice-cream cons while I was there. I mean it was delicious and I’d definitely go back again and ask for the same mixed con, but come on, it’s nothing fancy!
He said “it’s the best soft ice-cream in the world. Thats why. Other brands taste like artificial stuff, sometimes even like medicine, and some other brands feel like flavored ice, none tastes like KDD.” I don’t have any comment about what he said, but I think he was being too loyal.
^They sell their ice cream mix incase you have an ice cream machine, all you have to do is pour the mix in the machine and you’re all set.
The shop has all kinds of KDD products, everything actually. And the guy was a delight to talk to. He told me that KDD is planning to open more than 4 shops in just a few months. One in Salmiya, one in Maidan Hawally, and a couple of other places.
The ice-cream con costs 250 fils. The cup is for 300 fils. Flavors are chocolate, vanilla or a mix of the two.
