Kulfi is a popular frozen dessert in the Indian subcontinent. It is a dairy-based frozen treat, denser and creamier than regular ice creams. It is made with cooked milk, cane sugar and natural ingredient flavors. I was pleasantly surprised to see my local Costco carry these delicious treats in a snack size variety pack with 3 different flavors, cardamom, mango and almond pistachio. Each box contains 4 sticks of each flavor of kulfi and i am quite partial to the cardamom cream flavor. Each 1.6 oz kulfi has 80 calories and 7 grams of sugar and will sufficiently take care of your dessert cravings. They also have other flavors like strawberry, chikoo (sapodilla) and coconut. I can’t wait to taste the chikoo flavor someday. These kulfis are very authentic in terms of taste and texture and they are all natural and do not contain preservatives, eggs, artificial colors and are gluten-free.
The company has a very interesting story, what started as a home-based operation in Texas for Ms. Jas Singh became a full-fledged manufacturing outfit and i am so glad it did, because these kulfis are truly delicious. The company does party catering and offers taste-testing in Dallas, Texas. Kaurina’s tagline is “Deliciously different” and i can’t agree more. There is no information whether the milk and cream is from dairy farms that have pledged not to use rBST.
With less than 5 ingredients in each variety, these Indian Popsicles ooze with timeless goodness in each bite. I hope you can find them at a store close to you, you are sure to get hooked. They are priced at $9.89 for a box of 12 at Costco. Currently it is available in Costco warehouses across Texas and in Seattle, Issaquah, Tukwila and Kirkland in Washington state. Follow their facebook page for more updates on availability at stores close to you. It’s definitely worth the wait.
