Cargills Magic Ice Cream Truck (Colombo City Centre).

If you've been to the basement of Colombo City Centre, you might have noticed the massive Cargills Food City supermarket that lies there – known as the Cargills Food Hall. Not only it's a supermarket, but this one also carries a food boutique of their own – comprised of stations dedicated to whipping up sushi, fried rice, and baked goodies etc.
 
In here, we are going to have a look at the ice cream truck that they've parked right next to their cashier stations. 

The Ice Cream

Featuring 6 – 8 flavours of ice cream, their ice cream range is divided into two – Regular (Rs. 75 per scoop) and Heavenly (Rs. 125 per scoop). They also whip up ice cream kottu here, which we were looking forward to, but, unfortunately, it wasn't functioning during our visit to this place.

Therefore, we decided to opt for four of their flavours – Heavenly Chocolate, Heavenly Blueberries, Heavenly Almond & Nougat and Mango. 

*Pictured above – Heavenly Chocolate (left) and Heavenly Blueberries (right)
  • Embedded with bits of chocolate, the texture of the Heavenly Chocolate was smooth on the spoon, but the flavour could have been a tad richer. It was less chocolaty than we anticipated, and the chocolatiness was mainly coming through the added chocolate bits. 
  • The Heavenly Blueberries was a bit on the sweeter side, and not very blueberry-like. Sure, there was a swirl of fruitiness running through, and we could spot the pieces of blueberry in this, but we really missed the significant tang that we were looking for.

Out of the flavours we tried, these two had to be our favourites – for obvious reasons.

  • With chunks of almond, the Heavenly Almond & Nougat had ripples of kithul treacle running through it, making for a real treat. One might say that this is too sweet for their liking, which we agree, but it won't stop you from indulging in this. 
  • Boasting rich flavour notes and aroma, the Mango one was pure Karthakolomban bliss! It's like diving into a frozen karthakolomban gediyak, which is in a delicate, creamy form. For just Rs. 75, this is a solid one. 

Ambience & Service

This is the ice cream truck. From what we observed, they do not have a dedicated staff to serve the ice cream – it's mostly done by someone in the cashier stations. Quick and helpful, they offer a good service.

You can either get them to take away or sit down and enjoy them. They have laid out a few plastic chairs and tables for this purpose. 

Conclusion

We wish if they had more flavours, and sharp ones at that too. Still, it's a good one if you're at CCC, and looking for a cheaper option to satisfy your ice cream cravings.
