Pakistani food is spicy and savoury. It’s one that makes you want to have double and triple servings despite your face getting red and ears burning. What can make this better though, is a chilled, tasty, sweet dessert! Even if your food isn’t spicy, no meal is complete without dessert. And no dessert is better than chilled ice cream in the summers. Even in winters, ice cream lovers gravitate towards ice cream! I am one of those people who believes that there is no specific time for ice cream! You can have it whenever you want (in moderation, of course). And therefore, I wasn’t surprised to learn that howmuch, an online grocery store in Lahore, Islamabad and Rawalpindi, receives the most ice cream orders past midnight!
