Hassan Rukab recently developed a unique type of ice cream that boasts an elastic texture. In recent years, many companies have tried to reimagine ice cream with unique flavors and unexpected ingredients. However, Rukab is the first to completely change the texture of ice cream itself.
Rukab's stretchy ice cream is available from his shop in downtown Ramallah. Unlike traditional frozen treats, Rukab's ice cream features a unique elastic texture. The stretchy quality of the dessert allows servers to pull the ice cream into taffy-like strands that can span over a foot long. The distinct texture is the result of a unique combination of ingredients, which include salep and mastic gum. Beyond the unique texture, the ice cream also has a slower melt time.
Rukab's stretchy ice cream puts a fun twist on a classic frozen dessert.
