Kurimu Nama Chocolate
Kurīmu outdoes themselves with this incredible ice cream. A perfect balance of flavors, the Nama Chocolate is 100% plant-based.
TASTING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR
Nama is a type of ganache popular in Japan, made with cream and melted cacao. The mixture solidifies into soft blocks, and they are cut into squares and covered in cocoa powder. Kurīmu Ice Cream has taken this amazing Japanese confection, and turned it into one of their best flavors yet.
Infused with Yardstick Coffee’s Switch Blend, the Nama Chocolate has the delicious dark chocolate flavor, balanced with the classic bitterness of Italian dark roast coffee. This ice cream is made with oat milk, so it’s 100% plant-based. It’s also gluten-free, nut-free, and soy-free.
PREPARATION AND PAIRINGS
Honestly, the Kurīmu Nama Chocolate needs no additional frill. And we wouldn’t blame you if you ate it out of the tub on your own—it’s very good! Pair it with some cold brew coffee to highlight that coffee flavor, or drizzle a little bit of chocolate sauce to make it more decadent.
SIMPLE THINGS WITH GREAT QUALITY
Kurīmu only uses the best ingredients, and each tub of ice cream is carefully crafted. They toast and hand-pound black sesame seeds for their Black Sesame Ice Cream, and meticulously cook caramel and soy sauce together for their Shoyu Caramel. It’s a company that prides itself in the quality and care that they put into each pint. Doing simple things well is a motto they adapted from Japanese culture, one that seeps into their work, creating incredible flavors that will keep you wanting more.
Kurīmu Ice Cream is freshly churned daily, and contains no preservatives. Keep it fresh by storing it at the back of your freezer (where it is coldest), and making sure the lid is tightly shut, to prevent moisture and other contaminants from getting in. It is best consumed within 2-3 months.
