Our Story

It began with Pawan Malhotra who loves ice cream and made it a consuming passion. He pursued his passion across continents as he globe trotted in his professional life. Ice cream always consumed him even if he was in freezing Moscow, Copenhagen, London or Rome.

Cut to Oman, when one fine day, the department stores there just stopped stocking his favourite brands of ice cream. It inspired him to experiment on his own for the first time. So began the Ice cream man’s journey to make the most delicious home-made ice cream. Meet the eternal romantic, and perhaps the last gelato poet in the world, Pawan Malhotra.

Tangelo is a product of immense passion. It is a handcrafted artisanal ice cream Pawan began with making it traditionally in a wooden bucket freezer in 1999. He wanted to make a pure, natural ice cream with no additives with the delicious taste of home style ice cream.

There is something deliciously rich and satisfying about ice cream being churned slowly and having the flavour folded in. One of our signature favourites, Fig and Honey is made by very slowly folding the figs in and pouring the honey while the ice cream churns.

Tangelo is a family brand and family is the most important thing about Tangelo Ice creams. Pawan’s biggest supporter and partner in this ice cream story is his better half, Bina. She uses her gourmet skills to create amazing flavour combinations that make Tangelo ice creams exciting, innovative and delicious.

The great taste of every Tangelo ice cream comes from always using the finest ingredients, carefully sourced. We grow our own Tangerines and Lemons. The strawberries are from farms in Mahabaleshwar and North India, Alphonso mangoes from Ratnagiri, Organic honey from an apiary near Chandigarh and chocolate from Belgium.

We add no preservatives, synthetic stabilizers, artificial colours, gelatin or any other additives to create a pure & natural ice cream. Most of our flavours are also available in Vegan, Sugar-free, Gluten free, Lactose-free and low-fat options! All our non-dairy options are also soy free and made with coconut milk. You can choose between Stevia and Splenda for our sugar free range.
