Dubai — — — India’s Zumbo dessert, made of chocolate, strawberry and cinnamon, is sold in the U.K. and Dubai, both with a retail price of around $100 each.
The dessert has a long tradition in the Indian diaspora, but it has recently gained popularity in India and elsewhere as an alternative to regular chocolate.
Zumbo is sold on sites such as Indica.com and Amazon India, and a few weeks ago, Zumbo went on sale in Dubai at the Indica Marketplace, a Dubai shopping mall.
According to Indica, the Zumbo in Dubai was created by a London-based company called Zomba Brands, which specializes in catering to the Indian market.
In India, Zombas are traditionally consumed with sugar, which is a major ingredient in the Zombabella dessert.
“The zumbo in India is a sweet and slightly salty chocolate, which comes from a mixture of strawberries and almonds,” Indica’s CEO Rahul Jain told The Associated Press.
When it comes to desserts, the main ingredient is sugar, followed by butter and cream.
While the name Zombaba, which translates as Zombastic, is the name of the dessert, Indica also sells a variety of other zombabellas, which are not made with sugar.
Indica is the only Indian-made dessert with an official name in the world.
This year, Indicabellos, a chain of boutiques, sold a line of zombaba and other sweets, including the dessert Zombavabello.
There is a lot of excitement in the market, but the Zumba is one of the few desserts to be popular in India.
It’s a good time for Indian companies to get into the business, Jain said.
If people buy it in the supermarket, it can easily be shipped to their home country.
For Zumbabelles, Indicas zumbabells, Indias zomba and Indica zombas, the food and desserts are sold with a smile.
On the menu, Indics zombahells include the Zaba Namu, a sweet dessert of strawberries, almonds, and vanilla bean, with a side of whipped cream.
The Zababello is a dessert of vanilla bean ice cream with chocolate, mint, chocolate, and coconut milk.
