Scroll Ice Cream in Adelaide is part of a chain of shops first opened in Windsor, Victoria that produces ice cream presented in a unique scroll-like shape. Inspired by Thai street vendors, the process involves mixing the ingredients for your chosen flavour on a cold plate machine before spreading it out into a thin layer and rolling up the ice cream into the distinctive scroll shape. The plates are noted to achieve temperatures of around -20 degrees Celsius which helps to give their ice creams the smooth and creamy texture that everyone likes.

A great choice for those who like Asian flavours, the Coco Lovin Ice Cream had the right amount of coconut flavour highlighted by the addition of blueberries and blackberries. The topping of a lychee helps to add an element of freshness. This flavour is ideal for vegans as the main ingredient is coconut cream.

Based on the chocolate of the same name, the Ferro Rocher tastes quite similar to its namesake with the streaks of Nutella giving the ice cream a delectable choc-hazelnut flavour with a bit of crunch provided by the rice bubbles. The topping of a Ferro Rocher and two chocolate Pocky biscuits helped to complete the dish.

Their Perfect Matcha was very eye-catching, with the perfect amount of matcha to give the ice cream the green tea flavour that we expected. The fresh taste of the lychee and blueberries acted as a good contrast to the slightly bitter taste of the matcha with some strawberry Pocky biscuits providing a bit of sweetness.

Tasting similar to the dessert known as New York Cheesecake, the flavour of their Say Cheeese Ice Cream was not too cheesy. A scattering of biscuit crumb gives it the texture somewhat similar to the dessert it took its inspiration from. The sweet, fresh taste of the strawberries helped to cut through the rich taste of the ice cream.

The café has a relaxed casual atmosphere. There was even Uno cards provided at our table. Apart from ice creams, the café will be serving waffles and coffee in the near future.

That's fascinating, seeing ice cream rolled up like that. It's amazing what science can do.
