The cherry on top of the Soft Swirl experience – the price! I remember the moment I glanced at the menu, expecting to see a hefty price tag next to these delightful treats. But to my joyous surprise, Soft Swirl was far more economical than other ice cream parlors in Karachi!
I quickly did a double-take, thinking I had somehow stumbled upon a misprint or a generous ice cream fairy had blessed this stand with magical discounts. But no, it was real. As I handed over the money, a sense of satisfaction washed over me. I knew that I was getting not only delicious ice cream but also a great bang for my buck!
