If a chocolate soft serve is good and creamy and ticks all the boxes of what a soft serve should be, words are superfluous.

I have a terrible sweet tooth but I try to find “healthier” alternatives most of the time. Like dairy-free ice cream, or agave-sweetened desserts. They make me feel better about inhaling sugar haha.

Pariya is also the supplier of salads at Cityshop Deli, +++ points because I’m a fan!
