Introduction

Lezzetli is the Turkish word for “tasty” or “delicious,” and this refreshingly exotic take on ice cream is certainly as good as its name suggests. Called “Dondurma” by the people of Turkey, this ice cream is the perfect way to experience a different culture through a new take on a food everyone is familiar with. This chewy and stretchy ice cream has a texture that Best Products.com calls “totally addictive.” Choose from tasty, savory flavors like Chios Vanilla, Chocolate Orange Blossom, Spiced Date and Tart cherry.

About The Food

Lezzetli's ingredients are of the highest quality and completely all-natural, with no unnecessary additives. All flavors have a milk and sugar base, and instead of using eggs in the ice cream, they use all natural plant fibers and gums that don't impact the taste, but are essential to Lezzetli's unique texture. Because there are no eggs, Lezzetli flavors typically have approximately 25-50% less fat and calories than other premium ice creams. Lezzetli ice cream also has a higher melting point, so it isn’t as quick to dissolve on the tongue as traditional ice cream. The result is a uniquely chewy, creamy, and amazingly light ice cream.

A lover of Dondurma ice cream himself, Roberto Escobar was set on bringing this unique dessert to the ice cream-loving people of the United States. After perfecting his recipe for two years, Roberto’s Mediterranean-style ice cream could be found in limited grocery chains in the greater New York City Area, but now you can have this treat shipped anywhere nationwide!
