Freddo: "Old Classic" Freddo Tip by mircaskirca

Freddo, Buenos Aires: 4 reviews and 12 photos

 
 

One time best ice cream parlor Freddo started as a family business in 1969 with its first shop on Avenida Callao, in the heart of Barrio Norte. It has been serving locals since then. The company was sold in the early nineties and has expanded because of this, but unfortunately it also meant a descent in its quality.

The good news is that Freddo has recently been sold off the corporation and it is again in family hands. Let's hope that this means a better days for Freddo again. The ice cream is still good but their prices don't match the quality, espeially if we compare it with its comopetitiors, Volta (opened in 2002 by original family who started Freddo) and Persicco (www.persicco.com).

Freddo has numerous shops throughout the city and has even expanded into Uruguay and Paraguay. Aside from the modern interiors and brand new flavours, they have also created a line Kosher and gluten-free ice cream and are even served in Aerolineas Argentinas business class in-flight menu. A great variety of flavours is offered, divided in groups as Chocolats, Creams, Dulce de Leche, Creamy Fruits and Natural Fruits. You have to call 0810 33 for home delivery.


Favorite Dish: During my visit of Buenos Aires I tried many flavours and my favourite were Mousse de Chocolate, Dulce de Leche con Almendros (Dulce de Leche with Almonds) and Frutilla a la Crema (Creamy Strawberry). Yummy!
