- THE BREAKFAST
Inspired by his childhood breakfast favorite, Ronald created this gelato that consists of milk and cream but added with a generous dollop of Nutella to give that richer taste. Additionally the ice cream is also showered with cornflakes, thus resembling our favorite cereal breakfast.
- ULTIMATE DARK VADER
Not wanting his customers to just experience the stereotypical taste found in other chocolate ice creams, Ronald uses 70% local
dark chocolate mixed with Valrhona for this flavor. By that, he wanted to give a hint of elegance but something that everyone could also afford.
- RED VELVET
As one of the most famous flavors at Ron’s Laboratory, Ronald has given this formulation special attention since the beginning. He specifically uses medium roast chocolate powder he acquired from a chocolate supplier for the basic ingredient and presents the ice cream with a syringe fully loaded with cream cheese, as inspired from hawker’s ketchup bottles.
LIN ARTISAN ICE CREAM
LIN will always be known as the first liquid nitrogen ice cream parlor in Indonesia and has a relaxing ambiance to spend your weekend having an ice cream treat. Their latest ice cream creations that involve chocolate as we featured here are definitely not to be missed.

- MILO DINOSAUR
While it is more known as a much-loved beverage for both children and adults, LIN also adapts it in the form of ice cream and features it as one of their latest creations. As for the rest, LIN relies upon the richness of the milk and cream to make it wholesomely delicious.
The luscious hazelnut chocolate flavor from Nutella is successfully adapted by LIN and it became a wonderful addition for the rich array of LIN’s finest ice creams. Not only that, this flavor is also combined with crushed Marie Regal biscuit to give the crunchy texture.
The duo of best friends, Gupta and Primo, started their home ice cream business for delivery just last year but they’ve quickly amassed popularity and already distribute their products to as far as Bandung. Currently, Eskimomo is only serving online order and ready for delivery around Jakarta.

- CHOCO MINT COOKIES
The delicate taste coming out from this particular flavor comes from an inspirational combination of dark chocolate with a hint of
fresh mint alongside cookie crumbs. Therefore, the flavor of the ice cream feels elegant while also refreshing and colorful.
- CHOCO ORANGE
The invigorating orange tang from this milky chocolate
ice cream comes from a great combination of citrus and candied orange peel. With a combo like that, surely you can imagine that chocolate ice cream alone will never put you in a state of boredom anymore.
