These are the best ice creams at Lake Balaton this year!
The Balatonalmádi Amaretto ice cream parlour won the competition with an exotic mango-buckthorn flavour. That was the 10th time the Balaton Tourism Association announced the contest in search of the top Balaton ice cream flavours.
According to rtl.hu, the competition’s aim is to popularise traditional handcraft ice creams. Confectioneries and ice cream parlours could take part and submit two of their best flavours. This time, contestants had to prepare their ice creams at the venue of the competition in 35 minutes.
The jury considered the harmony of the flavours, the aesthetics, the condition of the cream, creativity and innovation with new ingredients when deciding about the best flavours. Fruits, wines, dairy products, and herbs common around Lake Balaton were a priority. This year, the venue was Balatongyörök, from where the Somogyi Fagylalt Műhely did not compete.
