Best Butterscotch Ice Cream Bricks in India – Mishry (2024)

Not just fresh but creamy, not just milky but with the highest butterscotch content- Havmor featured the best taste and texture.

Summer nights, some family time and MASSIVE bowls of ice creams – this is what heaven feels like.

Butterscotch ice cream, just like chocolate and vanilla, is a classic flavor that is relished across the globe. In an attempt to find the tastiest, the creamiest, we reviewed four contenders in our best butterscotch ice cream brick brands. Why bricks? Butterscotch isn’t a flavor you would pick to have as is on a stick anyway. Bricks define gatherings, which is why we chose to review this in large family-packs.

Of the 4 brands we reviewed, Havmor was unanimously chosen as a Top Pick. Details down below.

Key details on the contenders have been mentioned in the table below.

Our Review Process

The process of reviewing was quite practical. We compared the ingredients of the contenders, followed by a visual assessment to check the formation of icy surfaces, if any, and ended this with a taste test.

Our review initially included contenders like Vadilal and Amul, but after days of searching for the ice cream cart/flavor in different parts of Delhi NCR, we had to drop them due to unavailability. Though we do not rate contenders on this aspect, it is crucial when viewed with a macro vision. 

Our Review Factors

How did we form the best butterscotch ice cream brick review? What were we looking for, what were our parameters, other similar questions have been answered. 

Taste and texture, being the primary review-forming parameters, we also took into account certain nutritional facts. 

1. Taste

Many are of the opinion that butterscotch is essentially the same flavor as toffee or caramel. While the ingredients used are similar, it’s the heating process and proportions that give these three a distinct flavor.

Despite being used interchangeably, butterscotch has a salty edge that mellows out the sugar-butter combination while eliminating any bitterness. 

For this review, we looked for ice cream devoid of synthetic flavors and rancid aftertastes. With a rounded sweetness, we looked for an intense butterscotch flavor. 

2. Texture

Any well-churned ice cream is rich, creamy, and has a uniform texture. An absence of an icy layer is key. We’d appreciate that contender with a substantial quantity of butterscotch bits, instead of being completely smooth. 

3. Non Taste-Based Parameters

Here, the price, packaging, shelf life, ingredients, overall quality were assessed.

Do note that while we appreciate clean labels, butterscotch ice creams usually contain food color and artificial flavorings. Which is why we did not consider them as negative markers. We did look at the main ingredients, percentage of vegetable fat/milk solids used and if they are labeled correctly as frozen desserts/ice creams.

Our Experience

This butterscotch ice cream had the best flavor. The sweetness was well-balanced with a desirable flavor of butterscotch. We also tasted a pleasing, fresh milky flavor.

Next, the texture and mouthfeel. It was smooth with the maximum quantity of butterscotch bits. We appreciate how there was no icy layer formed at the top.

2. Mother Dairy

Our Experience

With a comparable sweetness to that of our Top Pick, the butterscotch flavor intensity in Mother Dairy was slightly lower. This is to say that the vanilla-like floral sweetness was more pronounced here. The milky flavor and freshness were on point.

The texture was almost as good as Havmor, there was no layer of ice formed and it had a premium mouthfeel. There was no grittiness.

3. Cream Bell

Our Experience

This product by Cream Bell is not labeled an ice cream, it is a frozen dessert. 

The classic butterscotch flavor was barely present. This was primarily only sweet and the creamy texture was average. 

Are frozen desserts and ice creams not the same? How?

To be classified as ice cream, the product must contain a minimum of 10% milk fat. Anything less and it is a frozen dessert. Typically, milk or milk solids would be one of the top three ingredients in ice cream. ‘Water, sugar, palm oil (or some fat)’ is how the ingredient list of a frozen dessert would look like.

4. Kwality Wall’s

Our Experience

Owing to the fact that this is made using 10.2% vegetable oil, this is a frozen dessert as well, not ice cream. While the texture was fairly decent, the taste was a big thumbs down. 

Sadly, the sandy flavor of the carton had seeped into the froze dessert, diminishing the flavor notes. Eventually, this was sweet with a box-like taste. 

As for the texture, the creaminess was okay, not too extraordinary in comaprison.
