If you’ve asked me a few years ago, I would have told you that my idea of soft ice cream was the soft ice cream served at McDonalds. I’ve had my fair share of McFlurries as a kid. Soft ice cream and candy will always have it’s own charm (it’s ice cream and candy – so what’s not to like?), but last summer I realized that soft ice cream can be so much more than the cheap version served at fast food chains.
The soft ice cream that made me change my mind was the one served at Something Frozen, a rather new ice cream shop in Copenhagen. Jane, the girl behind the counter and the owner of Something Frozen, has decided that gourmet soft ice cream definitely should be a thing in Copenhagen. And her soft ice cream is nothing like the one you’ve tried before.
There are always two soft ice cream combinations on the menu, that changes twice a week. Last week you could order a ”cheesecake soft ice cream” with soft ice cream, cookie crumbles and cherry sauce. And this week one of the alternatives are ”koldskål soft ice cream” – which is an ice cream version of the traditional Danish dessert ”koldskål”.
There’s a single bench waiting to be used outside Jane’s ice cream shop, but I would always suggest you to take your ice cream with you and walk the 50 meters down to the lakes in Copenhagen. That’s a perfect place to both enjoy your ice cream and the view!
