In Iran, most ice cream parlors deal with the traditional two items. One of them is Saffron flavored Ice cream, and the other is Persian Dessert Faloodeh.

Because of the rose water and lime flavor, Faloodeh has been my favorite since my childhood.

Most of the time, I buy Faloodeh with my pocket money.


Now I prefer it with some fresh lemon juice and Rosewater on top.

It is super refreshing.

Faloodeh is a frozen dessert with semi-frozen rice noodles on top. There is a unique combination of sweet and sour flavors between Faloodeh and Rice noodles.

In Iran, you can find Faloodeh at every domestic shop (ice cream parlor).

But it is more admired in the hot summer season, because of its refreshing and cooling tendency.

If you are trying Faloodeh for the first time, I guarantee you will not go back to the regular ice cream.
