Its not everyday that you get to taste the best ice creams in the world, but I am one lucky girl. I was invited for a unique tasting experience hosted exclusively for the bloggers before the official launch Mövenpick Ice Cream Boutique in Lavelle Road, Bangalore. This is their third outlet in India, with one being in Delhi and another one in Chennai.
Mövenpick Ice Creams was founded in 1948, starting off as a restaurant with a vision to serve only the best. Now “Mövenpick” is a well known brand worldwide. Started by Ueli Prager, with a philosophy that – “We are not doing anything extraordinary, we are just doing simple things in an extraordinary way”. Originally, in the 1960s, the ice cream was produced for restaurant sales only. The plant in Bursins was built in 1972, however production later was shifted to a larger state of the art unit in Rorschach, Switzerland. Mövenpick is now available in over 40 countries and has more than 300 boutiques worldwide.
Going with the tagline “The Art Of Swiss Ice Cream“, Mövenpick stands its business on three strong pillars;
- BORN OF A PASSION FOR GASTRONOMY – Mövenpick Ice Creams are made for the menus of ‘Haute Cuisine’. Each flavour is a masterpiece of culinary inspiration, a work of gastronomic art, sure to delight any discerning gourmet and the most demanding chefs.
- ONLY THE BEST THAT NATURE CAN PROVIDE – All Mövenpick flavours, textures and colours are sourced from the very best, searched out with great care from the best sources that the world can offer. No artificial flavours or colours. The reward is a subtlety that no ordinary ingredients can match.
- FASHIONED WITH SWISS PERFECTION – It takes special care to bring forth the subtle delicacy in a Mövenpick recipe – more time in the making and extra attention to detail. Mövenpick Ice Creams are a tribute to the loving carefulness for which the Swiss are famous.

We started off the exclusive tasting evening with some hot coffee. I chose to try out their most recommended Spiced Viennese Coffee. With a strong hint of cinnamon, it’s surely is a spice lover’s favorite.
Another fellow blogger tried out Affogato – Shot of espresso served with a scoop of Movenpick Ice Cream of your choice. He chose vanilla. I digged into the vanilla ice cream. It looked so pretty as you could see the tiny vanilla beans.
Next came in a series of ice cream desserts. Caramelita – Two scoops of Caramelita Ice Cream on the base with caramel sauce topped with caramel pieces garnished with wafer biscuit and whipped cream.
We then tried out Peach Melba – Vanilla ice cream placed on poached peaches drizzled with raspberry sauce garnished with whipped cream and peaches.
If you are a chocoholic like me, you have to try out their Swiss Chocolate Obsession – Freshly baked hot Belgian waffles served with Movenpick Swiss Chocolate Ice Cream and Stracciatella ice cream garnished with chocolate sauce and shavings. The chocolate ice creams are out of the world. Must try!!!!
Gourmet Chocolate Addiction – Piccolo hot chocolate served with three tasting scoops of Chocolate flavoured ice creams: Swiss Chocolate, White Chocolate and Stracciatella, sprinkled with rich chocolate shavings.
With a choice of over 20 delicious shakes, there is something for every taste bud. Strawberry Shake & Iced Mocha below.
You can also relish some delicious refreshments which are 99% Fat Free. I tried their Raspberry Sparkling Sorbet. It was a little tart, since they use fresh Raspberries. I loved it!!!
There is a reason why it’s the best and the most expensive ice cream in the world. Mövenpick Ice Cream applied a ‘Natural Policy’ to its range of ice creams. As a consequence, all Mövenpick products are made without artificial additives, artificial flavourings or artificial colours.
Head over to the boutique for this rich experience.
