It is uncommon for many households in Kenya to have dessert after a meal. But this does not mean Kenyans do not gratify their sweet tooth syndrome. Ice cream, in particular, is a guilty pleasure for many. This led to the emergence of ice cream shops dishing out all manner of customised and crafted ice creams. Dessert spots have become an alternative daytime hang-out joint when it is too hot for a cup of tea.
