The best ice-cream in Helsinki!
The past few days in Helsinki have been sunny and warm! Summer is here!
On Saturday I was shopping in Forum and I stopped by Helsingin Jäätelötehdas kiosk located on the ground floor to enjoy a maraschino flavoured ice-cream. Great flavour with raisins and only organic colours! Delicious! Its 18 flavours are prepared in Helsinki on Mäkelänkatu street and sold the very next day.
Helsingin Jäätelötehdas (Helsinki Ice Cream Factory) is the oldest still operating ice-cream factory in Finland. This year, the company celebrates its 90th anniversary. It is a family business ran by the third generation of the Italian Magi family.
In Forum’s Helsinki Ice Cream Factory kiosk you will find friendly Rebecca and Andrea serving you lip-smacking ice-cream! Take your kids or treat yourself with delightful ice-cream flavour all year round!
The legendary ice-cream company has countless loyal customers who have enjoyed the same flavours since childhood as well as international visitors who stop by to grab a little piece of heaven in a summer day.
If you have font memories of Helsinki Ice Cream Factory, you can vote it for the Best Family Fun entry in a competition organised by the City of Helsinki. Participants will have a chance to win a “Key to the City”, which includes exclusive experiences in Helsinki during 2013! For more information, go to: http://www.bestofhelsinki.fi/en/family-fun
