KFC’s getting Kreamy
You can beat the heat with KFC’s new Kream Ball. For all ice cream fans out there, the Kream Ball is a delightful combination of rich creamy vanilla soft serve, layered over crunchy cookie crumble and topped with oodles of flavourful chocolate, mango or strawberry sauce. The dessert also looks irresistible in a see-through spherical bowl. And, we think it’s pretty reasonably priced at `49. Speaking about the newly introduced dessert range, Dhruv Kaul, director of marketing for KFC India, says, “This summer, we are delighted to bring our bestselling international dessert, the Kream Ball, to our Indian consumers. Innovation is at the very core of our brand and it is our constant endeavour to provide our consumers with a new and exciting range of products. With summer approaching, we are confident that the consumers will love the new offering.” In addition to the introduction of the new dessert range, KFC is also offering an exciting meal combo — you can swap the KFC Kream Ball with the dessert in your Zing Kong Box at an additional cost of `29 only.

If one sees all three worlds and the impact of their deeds, they will be full of love."
