SINGAPORE: Icecream sandwich

Hellooo ladles and jelly spoons :D

Joke time(got it off the net):

The young man entered the Ice Cream Shop at the amusement park and asked, "What kinds of ice cream do you have?"

"Vanilla, chocolate, strawberry," the girl wheezed as she spoke, patted her chest and seemed unable to continue.

"Do you have laryngitis?" the young man asked sympathetically.

"Nope," she whispered, "just vanilla, chocolate and strawberry."

This post's topic is ice-cream sandwiches. I know, doesn't seem like an actual thing but it totally is! You can probably find it in some cafes in Singapore too but most often its found on the street in a busy area in a cart and an umbrella over it. (Song here. Most often found frequently along Orchard Road if you all don't want to go hunting for this)

Bro queuing. was a hot day so everyone was in line haha

It seems you can order up to 20 sandwiches, or perhaps more but on the paper the largest amount I saw was 20 (But honestly who on Earth would order 20 sandwiches, unless its for a party obviously. I mean, they're really good but..20??) It can come in between biscuit or bread, and it's $1.20 SGD for one. The line seemed pretty long at first, but over time it got shorter. I suppose people got many sandwiches at once, since the owner is actually quite efficient for an old man, and our sandwich was done in less than 3 minutes. (Okay I disagree with this. 3 minutes is considered efficient for an ice cream sandwich? It's literally chopping a block of ice cream and putting it between two slices of bread or biscuit.. Let's face it it's not fine dining haha)

Songie being greedy with his two sandwiches. Jk he shared the vanilla with me.
 It's a childhood treat for me and Songie, and I think it could be the same guy with his wife that I had my first one from years ago, also on Orchard. Totally possible since people seem to retire pretty late around here. There's a range of flavours like classic vanilla, mint, chocolate and stuff like mango, yam and durian. The bread they use is the usual Asian bread, which if you guys haven't tried its softer and has a hint of sweetness in it even without any spread.



Overall this is a delectable treat that is so refreshing(not to mention super affordable) on a hot day(which is pretty much everyday) in Singapore.

A selfie just cos'.
