    why rock??

  2. Blackdiamond says:

    which rock-stone or rockstar one

  3. SaSi says:

    Sorry @Blackdiamond, it is a typo.. You actually need rock salt

  4. Rahul Bhardwaj says:

    Dear Blackdiamond – thank you so much for your question. It’s an excellent question. We need rock salt as it balances the taste of ice cream. The majority of popular icecreams use rock salt in their preparations. Hope this helps.

  5. Rahul Bhardwaj says:

    Dear @Blackdiamond, you seem to be a rockstar posting interesting questions. You don’t need to add any rock-stone 🙂

  6. Rahul Bhardwaj says:

    Thank you @SaSi for your response. You get a 100% for your correct response.
