Traditionally, Argentines are known to have the best dulce de leche and Freddo is specialized in ice creams of this flavor. Options range from pure dulce de leche ice cream, with brownie, with flakes, with pieces of Vauquita dulce de leche, not to mention that there is an option that harmonizes with marsala wine. In addition to this classic flavor, the highlight goes to Freddo because it offers more than 30 ice cream flavors 100% handcrafted. Calories are the problem? There are also light and gluten free ice creams. If you want to prove these delicacies, just go to JK Iguatemi Shopping Mall, in the Southern area of the city.

Highlight, medium pot of ice cream in a person's hands. In the pot, on a background drawn with a blue sky and some clouds, in a brown curve band is written "BEN & JERRY`S". Below, "CHOCOLATE FUDGE BROWNIE ICE CREAM".

Ben & Jerry’s, one of the largest ice cream brands in the world, also confirmed its presence in the city. The store, on Oscar Freire Street in Jardins, is the largest unit in the world and clients can sample the flavors Cherry Garcia, Chocolate Chip Cookie, DoughStrawberry Cheesecake, and also milk shakes, ice cream cakes, coffee and waffle cones.

Anyone near Jardim Paulista will find traditional milk shake, with chestnuts, with vanilla and hazelnut cream, besides almond ice cream and banana split on Milk & Mellow Burgers. If you’re hanging out with friends, you can order an ice cream coupe, take a very nice picture and post on Instagram! The suggestion is Sundae Waffle, with ice cream and two toppings of your choice. And there are even more flavors! Check out more options on the website.

¡Arriba, muchacho! Have you tried Mexican paleta? In case you haven’t, the right place to do so is Los Paleteros, offering ice ceam made from natural products, without food dyes or preservatives.  Not to mention the size of the paletas, that seem real fruit on a stick. It’s mouthwatering!

In Moema, in the Southern area, Cold Stone Creamery is the ice cream parlor for adventurers who wish to create their own ice cream flavors. There, the clients are free to mix sprinkles, nuts, syrups, brownie and other tasty treats. In addition to ice cream creations signed by Cold Stone’s master ice cream-maker, the menu also offers ice cream cakes. We will give you some suggestions: for ice cream, ask for the Mud Pie Mojo — a coffee, chocolate fudge, peanut butter and Oreo ice cream —it is really good! Now, for ice cream cake: Cookies & Creamery, an explosion of chocolate cake, vanilla ice cream and sandwich cookies. Download the Cold Stone app on Apple Store and check all options in the menu!
