Whilst I was back in the UK preparing for my wedding I wrote a random list of things I wanted to do when I got back to Singapore, one of these being to sample a typical road side Singaporean treat of an ice cream sandwich. Well technically I still have the sandwich to sample, yes that's right it really is a block of ice cream in-between two pieces of bread! However I did try the ice cream wafer version on a recent afternoon out.
I was perhaps a little unadventurous as I had mango flavour whilst my husband had chocolate. This despite there being the options of both durian and sweetcorn flavour. I've been told sweetcorn flavour is good so perhaps next time. Anyway what we had was really delicious and just what we needed as it was a hot afternoon and we'd done a lot of walking.
What surprised me is how little the ice cream melted, despite us being outside whilst we ate them. Usually when I have an ice cream here it's a race to eat it before it melts and drips everywhere, but not these hearty slabs of deliciousness. By the time I'd finished there was barely a trickle of melted ice cream in the plastic bag we'd been given to hold it in and I didn't gulp it down exceptionally fast. A treat to definitely have again, I just need to try that sweetcorn flavour and sandwich my ice cream in some bread next time.
