The Cream & Fudge Factory

The Cream & Fudge Factory's signboard has been up at Fahrenheit 88 since September, teasing us for months with the promise of super-smooth ice cream. When this surprisingly small outlet (with five tables) finally opened, we wasted no time securing our sweet scoops.

The concept at this Thai-founded franchise is fun and creative: choose a few ice cream flavors, then roll them up with nuts, fruits, candy & fudge over a frozen marble stone. It takes mere minutes to triumphantly serve everything on a crisp waffle bowl.

This "Chocolate Truffle Sensation," comprising cookie dough & chocolate ice cream with Ferrero Rocher & hazelnuts, delivered a marvelously milky taste and velvety texture for RM12.90. The Cream & Fudge Factory's boast that it whips up the world's creamiest ice cream is debatable, but we'll still rank this with Ben & Jerry's best.

Customers can concoct their own combinations; we happily indulged in a threesome of French vanilla, peanut butter & caramel ice cream, thrown together with Mars candy bars, brownies & marshmallows (all for RM22.50). There's endless room for experimentation; we'd love to try the other ice cream flavors _ including cheesecake, green apple & rum raisin _ and mix-ins like Maltesers, blueberry pie & caramel fudge.

Ice cream shakes are also available, though prices for these are kinda high at RM16.50 a pop. The Bubble Gum and Sweet Cream flavors were not too thick, not too thin; not too sugary, not too bland. Just right? Almost.

  2. Baby sumo: yaaaa, I like how it has a messy, out-of-shape and unconventional look, unlike the sundaes at baskin-robbins, swensens and those other outlets :D

  6. Cream & Fudge is here? In KL?! I remember actually licking my fingers from my mess of a massive sundae in Bangkok a few years ago, lamenting why KL trails behind every other city in the region. This I MUST visit!

  7. tng: yep, fairly reasonable, though the portion sizes are not really large enough to share :D
    lfb: ramen followed by ice cream? sounds too sinful for a weekday lunch! u should consider a bowl of chicken porridge and an apple instead =)
    michelle: not near enough! about a 15-minute drive, if the traffic gods are kind :D
    min: i've never managed to have it at bangkok! i'm wondering whether the ice cream tastes even better in thailand! =)

  9. We like to call this Teppanyaki ice cream. ^_^ The guys here sometimes rap too to the beat of their kic-kocking utensils.

  10. porch: i guess many countries have their own homegrown stores that specialize in ice cream? malaysia has the last polka, for example! :D
    gfad: oooh, i assume they rap to their own original rhymes! though i bet it'd be nice to hear them do dj jazzy jeff & the fresh prince's "summertime" while whipping up that ice cream =)
