IceKraft- Lets paint the town Black

Mumbai based brand has setup three outlets in Pune. IceKraft, crafting happiness is known for their Gothic black ice cream. The goth culture is now reflected in the ice creams as well. So all the black lovers Ice Kraft is where you would definitely like to visit. Know that when you have the black charcoal ice cream you’re in for a surprise because the ice cream is black but has a hint of the orange flavour which only works in the favour of it.

IceKraft’s Black magic is spreading fast among the foodies and the youngsters. This is one of the very unique ice-cream which has activated edible charcoal in it. Along with Ice-cream they have lot many thing to offer, like Nutella Freaky shake, waffles, pancakes, fries, different types of corn based dishes, some healthy salads and sandwiches. So its a one stop destination for the all the age group.

The B Team was invited for the tasting some of their Snacks and the of-course the Black Ice Cream.

The Hurricane Fries: Its a Twisted/tornado Potato fried and drizzled with flavour of your liking which are mentioned in the menu. It was nice and crisp till the end.

Zucchini Fries: Crunchy with soft steamed zucchini inside sprinkled with their secret spices. Something really hard to find in a regular cafes.

Sweet Potato Fries: It had sweet and spicy taste to it which made this stand out from the regular masala fries.

Crinkle Cut Fries: Nice big chunky pieces with the similar masala sprinkled on it which was on the sweet potato fries, this made bit difficult to differentiate between the both. Although you have different option of sprinkles to choose from like Herbed, Paprika, Cheesy, Chaat and Pepper.

Steamed Corn with Pepper: This was the taste changer dish from the course which was served till now. Hot and spiced up with Pepper golden corns tossed with butter.

Desserts:

Coffee based Absolute Chocolate Freak Shake: This had a coffee base, Oreo, Nutella, brownies, choco-chips and hot fudge, it was one of the messy shake I have ever eaten. Once it is placed on your table you should stop counting your calories intake. This was really nice in taste, but mind it, you will have to share it!!! Its huge!!

Chocolate Pancake: Moving on to a much decent and well plated item from the menu was this Pancake. Nice hot pancake is soaked in Chocolate syrup.

Waffle with Black Ice Cream: This was out of the menu. generally they serve it with the regular waffle but just for us the owner wanted us to try it out and give the feedback. As the waffle was hot the Ice cream was melting and it got messy by the time we tried to capture some amazing pictures.

Black Monster: This was as usual the star of the evening, Black Waffle cone with steel grey with Activated Charcoal Ice-cream with some shredded Choco-chips sprinkled on it. Wow this the first expression come in when the ice-cream was served. There was bee line for capturing the best picture of it. It altogether a different experience to have it. It was perfectly sweetened and had a very earthy taste to it.

A big shout out to Ishita for inviting us and Mohit and Team Icekraft for hosting us.

Oh So Stoned KP- Alcoholic Anonymous Collection Ice-Cream. 


Oh So Stoned is a renowned Ice Cream chain in Delhi and Hyderabad and has finally made its way to Pune.

Oh So Stoned! , a venture of Meghna Group of Companies, is a popular & innovative ice cream brand based on the glacial stone concept. Launched in 2012, Oh So Stoned! Offers a wide variety of glacial stone creations, thick shakes, gooey chocolate brownies, Munchies – range of quick bites.


I was Invited to taste their signature Alcoholic Flavoured Ice-Creams, and they call it Alcoholic Anonymous.


The first thing we tried was the Rum Baba Ice Cream. On hearing about an alcoholic flavoured ice cream. Let me clear some facts of it, this Ice-Cream, it’s not alcoholic. That’s because all the spirit has been cooked off and is reduced to only flavour. The ice cream has all the punch on Rum and is topped with a Rum ball. They also have a fantastic topping sauce.

Next in the line was the Drunken Nuts about Toffee: It was the most nuttiest Ice-Cream. Nice crunchy with the very first bite. Almond praline toffee fused with Chocolate Ice-Cream topped with Roasted Almonds pieces with Signature Rum Sauce. #MustHave.

Next one was some desi style Drunken Chikki: This was a blend of Vanilla and Butter Scotch ice-cream with Small Chikki pieces sprinkled on top with their Special Whiskey Caramel Sauce. Crunchy and sticky flavor of the ice-cream.


Last one was Boozy Banoffee: The Indulgent Banana and Toffee Dessert infused with Vanilla Ice-cream topped with Chocolate shaving along with Whiskey Caramel Sauce, Choco Chips and Banana Slice. The cup cone becomes bit soggy if you don’t finish it soon. If you like the flavor of banana in your ice cream then this is for you.



Oh So Stoned has seasonal menu to look forward especially the Mango Special, where they have Mango based ice-cream and Shakes.
Thank you Maneesh Manral (Go. Pune) for the invite  and Oh So Stoned Koregaon Park for Hosting us. 

Creamicals 

Date of visit 6 July 2025…. Are you wondering why did I mentioned the year wrong …. It should be 2015 and not 2025 …!!! Yeah this was the same feeling came in to my mind when I was watching my ice cream getting dressed up and decorated….

When I visited this place on 6th July 2015 it was not even listed on the Zomato, I still have the bill kept all these months safely and I was waiting to review it. I tried twice sending the request to add the venue but failed to get it listed….
Recently I was searching for an another ice cream joint where in I came across this place…. So finally it was listed with many lovely reviews from the fellow foodie’s….

Unique way of preparing the ice cream right in front of you, without adding any kind of preservatives, colouring or food essence or for that matter sugar to make this spoonful of magic.
They don’t use stabilisers to make the ice creams, so the ice cream starts melting within 10-15 minutes so it’s no point taking it home.

We tried KIWI KICK ₹150/- and BROWNIE BUZZING ₹150/-

Both the ice creams were just heaven, mouth melting, it was so quickly melted before we could catch the taste and the sweetness of the flavour it was vanished from the taste buds…. So end up having one more spoonful of magic and try to catch the same… Then again…. It goes on…. It’s just Magical….

Overall…..

Ice Creams: Amazingly Magical….. That’s what I call…. Excellent variety, freshly made in front of you, without any guilt you can have more as they have natural sugar in it. The ice creams are delectably smooth without any lumps or ice crystals.
Service: Superb, nicely done and served with smile.
Staff: Super clean and they handle everything very carefully, not in a hurry they take they time to prepare.
Ambience: Single shutter shop but very colourful and lively.
Value for money: Its a magic with a technology so prices gonna be on higher side but mind it, it’s not roadside kulfi wala or for that matter any multinational ice cream brand… The price you pay is for the innovation, freshness, tenderness, and the most important is its the consistency of quality. It’s really worth paying for the goodness of magic…..
