Stick ARTS Ice Cream @ 1st Avenue Mall, Penang.

I was rather amused by the colorful ice cream when I first passed by the place, as well as the kiosk's name- Stick ARTS. Out of curiosity, I've decided to check it out, so this kiosk was opened at 8th floor of 1st Avenue Mall earlier ago, it sells hand-made ice cream serve with wood stick and come with 3 base of Yogurt, Gelato and Sorbets (ingredients imported from Italy and no artificial coloring used). My overall verdict on their ice cream will be: Prices on the slightly steeper side and the taste wasn't too unique to me, nothing much worth of mentioning. I was told that there will be 2 sizes available but there was only 1 size available during my visit, which was the Large ones, priced at Rm 6.90 each.



Rum and Raisins with Hazelnuts Gelato (Rm 6.90- Large). I thought it was kinda cute and it triggers my cravings for ice cream. The green part was apparently chocolate and covered with bites of Hazelnuts. The flavor inherited from the Rum was rather strong but I find this too sweet for my taste buds, especially with the sweetened Raisins around, it adds more sweetness to the ice cream. Moreover, it doesn't possess the texture uniquely owned by Gelato, cute but the taste wasn't too appealing to me.


My friend had this Lime Sorbet (Rm 6.90- Large) and he told me this ice cream wasn't too sweet (I would presume that this wasn't as sweet as mine), with an agreeable balance of sourness. His only complaint was that this ice cream was too small for the price and I reckon that mine was much cuter than his.
