Review: King's Grand Green Tea Ice Cream

>> Thursday, May 30, 2013

Overall comment: Quite smooth, but the taste of green tea is not evident enough. It has more "cream" & sugar than green tea, which made the ice-cream disappointing in my opinion (for the price to pay per 1-liter tub). This is just my personal opinion, so you may actually like this ice-cream ;)
Halal: Certainly!

My box of ice-cream for sampling :D Nicely wrapped!

Early this month, King's Grand introduced a new, improved, "GRAND" look plus a brand new Green Tea ice-cream variant! This new baby joins its other cousins i.e. Tin Roof Brownie, Cappuccino Chips, Tiramisu, Caramel Almond Fudge & Triple Chocolate, to bring all ice-cream lovers an enjoyable treat for all occasions.

King's Grand aims to bring all its supporters an intense & soothing experience of a green tea flavored ice-cream that will be great on a hot afternoon, in the all-new elegant red tub that reflects its premium positioning.

Available in 2 pack sizes: 115ml cup (RM0.99/cup) & 1-liter tub (RM9.90/tub)
The ice-cream is available at all leading hypermarkets, supermarkets, & even your nearest grocery outlets.

So what's my review & opinion?

Upon scooping out the ice-cream, it felt pretty smooth, but the ice-cream melted quite fast, so I had to scoop it out quickly & not spend time taking photos!

Texture-wise, it is quite smooth, but not the satisfying-smooth. The flavor, as I have mentioned earlier is also not strong enough for my liking as I prefer green tea ice-creams that are really pungent in green tea flavor 'til it's sometimes slightly bitter (bitter-sweet). I personally find it too sweet as well 'til it "stings" the tongue & leaves a not-very-pleasant feeling. My housemate felt the same.

The taste of the green tea comes only when you let the ice-cream "sit in your mouth a little longer". I couldn't really taste the green tea on my 1st mouthful & I had to eat it up really quick instead of enjoying/savoring every bit of it since it melts too fast. Weather & temperature certainly play a part in the ice cream's melting-speed, but I guess this ice-cream isn't as "solid" as the really premium ones like Haagen Dazs, where you can really enjoy each scoop without having the fear that it will become "milk shake" all too soon....

To be fair, King's have come quite a long way in the ice-cream industry. They have certainly improved with this variant from its predecessors, but I guess there's still much room for improvement if they want to be the top of the list for "affordable premium ice-cream".

It's so hot I need ice-cream,

wahhhh got ice cream for review some more... hahah... i think king's has improve a lot but of course there's a need to improve more. I guess their premium ice cream is considered as the better basic range ice cream

@HenRy LeE: Yeah, 2nd time having ice-cream for review :P Quite fun...hahaha...and yes, King's have improved much, but they certainly have quite some way to go if they wanna be top choice for affordable premium ice-cream :)

Hey, sorry to bother but just wanted a quick response from anyone in general. my mum just bought the cappuccino chips ice cream. both my sis and my mom had sample them and they claimed that there is a weird slight stinging sensation on the lips after eating it. I'm not sure is this the same stinging sensation mentioned. so for those who had tried it or any other King's Grand ice cream, do you guys/girls get the same feeling or should I just toss away the ice cream? thank you in advance.

@Lyle Connie: Hi Lyle, no I didn't have that stinging sensation when I had the Green Tea ice-cream. Ask someone else to try that same ice-cream & see if the same happens? You can write-in to King's to submit your concerns/complaints.
