Frozen Bottle delivers what its name promises — creamy milkshakes in ice-cold bottles
Ever wondered when the algebra and differential calculus you learnt would come in handy? Well here’s one of the sweetest real-life uses you’ll ever find for mathematics. With each of its ingredients measured, weighed and proportioned to a precise number, Frozen Bottle, the newest milkshake brand to enter the city, promises the same flavour, consistency and creaminess across stores anywhere in the country. “This was what prompted me to bring the brand to Coimbatore,” begins Mohammed Ibrahim Niaz, the franchise owner in the city. As we enter the week-old outlet, we spot the brand’s trademark cowman mascot, along with their signature coloured-glass milk bottles lined up on the shelves.
Currently the Bengaluru-based brand’s largest outlet, this 700 sq-feet joint can easily seat up to 25 people and is centrally located in Race Course. Buzzing with college-goers on a weekday afternoon, most of who are still fascinated with the novelty that its vintage glass bottles offer, the brand has managed to open shop just ahead of one of its biggest competitors yet, Keventers. However, Mohammed isn’t too perturbed about things. “Given that every other café is now serving drinks and shakes in glass bottles, the curiosity will soon die out. I think our edge comes from the desi flavoured milkshakes and ice cream cake jars that we offer.”
Pop goes the milkshake
From Filter Kaapi to Banana Gulkand, the menu extends to 25 options and has something for everyone — chocolate lovers, classic shake drinkers and the adventurous. Daringly we start with the popcorn shake and we’re pleasantly surprised how good it tastes. Looks like we no longer need to be head to a theatre for our popcorn fix! On recommendation, we try Mohammed’s favourite Berry Blast. While it is a little too sweet for our palate, we love the berry flavour, its creamy texture and the way the red fruit-syrup glistens in the light. Next on our list is the Oreo Cheesecake, which is quite the opposite. Balancing out the sweetness of the ice cream, with chocolatey bitterness from the cookies, this luscious drink is our favourite.
We also recommend the Alphonso Mango Cake Jar, a two-layered cake dessert, topped off with a scoop of ice cream, fresh mango Feedback purée, sprinkles and a strawberry stick. With its fresh fruit pulp and sweetness on point, it’s a must try.
