Ice cream of the year: „Szőke Zserbó” in Balatonfüred
Location: 4 Zákonyi Ferenc Str, Balatonfüred
The aim of the Hungarian Ice Cream of the Year competition is to promote traditional, high-quality artisanal ice cream, so that the Hungarian confectionery industry can offer its customers better and better quality ice cream, thus creating a demand for healthy and high-quality artisanal products. Along this principle, this year 74 ice creams competed for first place in four categories. The category of Confectioners, Artisanal Ice Cream Makers was open to artisanal ice creams made with natural base and by-products, and homemade toppings, pastes and decorations, following the traditional technological sequence – reported by Turizmus.com. The gold medal winner in this category in 2022 is „Szőke Zserbó” (Blonde Gerbaud) by Dobó Norbert, which also begged the Ice Cream of the Year award. It is available in Füredi Fagyizó, Balatonfüred.
In addition, confectioners could also create their specialties in the “free” category, with ice creams that cannot contain added sugar, gluten, lactose or milk protein. This year’s winner in this category is „Szilvás Fekete Tea” (Plum Black Tea) by Wilheim Dávid, available in Pingvin Ice Cream Shop and Confectionery, Balatonmáriafürdő. Based on the jury’s decision, both are worth tasting this summer.
Location: 3 Saint Stephen’s Square, Budapest 1051
