Croatian ice cream Lino Lada has been named the best ice cream in the world by the International Ice Cream Consortium (IICC) at an award ceremony held in Sweden, reports Croatia Week. The frozen dessert is produced by the largest Croatian ice cream manufacturer Ledo.
Lino Lada has been a popular spread in Croatia, and it was transformed into an ice cream for the first time this year. The dessert was created in cooperation with Podravka and was launched on the market in April.
The jury of experts were said to have appreciated the unique shape of the Lino Lada ice cream, as well as its soft coating. Overall, the awards celebrates the efforts that were put into turning the Lino Lada spread into a frozen dessert.
Podravka developed the two-color cream spread in 1998, which is now available in five flavors in more than 20 countries across the world.
