Stickhouse - Italian Handcrafted Gelato

Not being a dessert person, I didn't know there's any differences between a gelato and sorbet. Things changed when tried the Stickhouse healthy gelato concept originated from Italy. Stickhouse is probably the pioneer introducing gelato on a stick to bring back the good old time when we had our ice cream during school time.
Before I continue, let me give you a crash course on the difference between gelato and sorbet.

  • Gelato is an healthier option compare to ice-cream because it had more milk than cream where ice-cream had more cream than milk
  • Sorbet on the other hand contain no milk at all thus there's no fat in it and everything in it is pure fruits
With that being said, Stickhouse gelatos are produced using only 100% natural and genuine ingredients with no added artificial flavouring, colouring, or preservative. The base includes
  • Inulin - A vegetable fibre extracted from chicory aid in increasing the absorption of calcium, digestion, and reduces cholesterol
  • Fructose - Log glycemic index natural product contained in fruits, honey and some vegetables and plants
  • Carob Bean Flour - Act as natural stabilizer, good for digestive disorders.
  • Sodium Caseinate - High quality protein product obtained by fresh pasteurized skimmed milk
  • Egg White - Pure protein source with high biological value and is fat free.
Since most Malaysian had sweet tooth, you can opt to go for add-on dipping with a selection of White Chocolate, Chocolate, and Black Chocolate where they were all pure chocolate. If the dipping doesn't satisfy your craving, you can also go for topping from Almonds, Hazelnuts, Pistachios, and Chocolate Rice. You might notice their dipping and topping is pretty limited compare to others and that's because Stickhouse is still looking for alternative way to come out with more option without using 'nonsense' in it.
Stickhouse had a very strong fan base in mostly Europe country as this point of time and is now venturing into Asian country like Seoul, Manila, Jakarta, Singapore, Thailand, China, and now Malaysia. I was told that Stickhouse produced an accumulate total of 24 flavours so far but not every outlet / region had the same flavour. Even here in Malaysia, only Citta Mall had lychee flavour whereby other outlet might have different type of exclusive flavour. Stickhouse Malaysia is also the first and only to have Gelato on a Stick with Durian flavour and guess what they only use D24 Durian to make it, didn't I told you Stickhouse use only the best ingredient?
Stickhouse's Gelato has NO added air in it making it denser and creamier in its texture and offered a rich and strong taste to every bite. The Sorbet on the other side is best describe with 2 words - fruitilicious delightful! It taste exactly like your ordinary fruits minus the mess / effort to peel. It is indeed a dessert that you can enjoy to the fullest without guilt. Personally I love the Gelato for its rich flavour and smooth texture, I would however prefer the dark chocolate that I dip in be less sweet and slightly more bitter. The Sorbet is good all by itself without dipping and/or topping. It has the fruit fragrance and natural sweetness in it.

Price wise some might find it pricey but it could be justify by its tip top ingredient and process of making assurance that each bite is a blast. The mini stick is sold at RM5.80 where the Regular at RM9.80. Separate charges on the dipping and topping with RM3 for full dip / topping and RM1.50 for half dip / topping.
