Soft serve ice cream is softer than regular ice cream as it is stored at a temperature slightly higher than regular ice cream. Another reason why it is so soft is the inclusion of air in it by beating while freezing. Usually sold in edible biscuit or wafer cones or in paper cups, softies are a favorite among kids. They’re quite easy to make at home too.
