What Melts in Your Mouth and on Your Hands?

Don’t know? Unless you are living in Alaska or Greenland or Northern Russia or anywhere the temperature is freezing cold, you will very likely know. Yes, it’s Ice-Cream! And who makes the best Ice-cream? Häagen-Dazs! Me love them. In Singapore where the weather is very warm, nothing beats an cold ice-cream in the blazing afternoon heat. Very refreshing. Just thinking of eating a Baileys Irish Cream ice-cream makes me all fuzzy inside. Ahh…simple pleasures. It’s just too bad that in Singapore, we seem to enjoy the sewer-reject slop they call “ice-cream” made by Walls. I don’t even think Walls is making ice-cream, more likely low quality ice-crap. Worse for all ice-cream lovers, Walls have invaded nearly every household in Singapore and gotten hold of a huge portion of the ice-cream market because of marketing.

Next time you think of buying ice-cream , don’t visit your friendly neighbourhood shop that sells Walls, try the bigger supermarkets and look for Häagen-Dazs stuff. Taste real ice cream for a change. Try the Butter Pecan or the Macadamia Brittle (I don’t think you can find this in Singapore, perhaps in selected stores only). Or you can visit the Häagen-Dazs stores to get a scope or two. You will come back for more.

Here are some of the other great makers of ice cream – Dreyer’s, Ciao Bella Gelatino, Cold Stone Creamery and Baskin Robbins.
