We all love to eat ice cream, but every now and then, you get sick of eating the same old flavours. Ever been stuck in a predicament like this? We have, and we’ve got the perfect solution: make your own!
Make it extra nutty, extra fruity, extra chocolate-y, or cook up a crazy, wacky creation! Throw out the rule book and create whatever it is your heart so desires.
We’ve compiled a list of 5 places you can go to create your own ice cream, and from the start to the end, we’re sure you’ll enjoy every bit of the process.
1. Cold Rock Ice Creamery
Born out of the state of Queensland in the land down under, Cold Rock Ice Creamery has a catchy 4 step slogan: Choose it, Mix it, Smash it, Love it! That basically sums up what happens at this ice cream joint.
Cold Rock boasts an impressive range of ice cream, gelato and sorbet flavours.
Mix in toppings like chocolates, candies, cakes, fruits, nuts–just do your thing with it! After taking your pick, watch your ice cream creation come together on their ‘Cold Rock’. Gobble it all up in the store or bring home a pack! If you’re feeling thirsty, they also have a yummy selection of Shakes and Smoothies for you to choose from.
2. Ice Cream Chefs
Opened over 10 years ago in 2007, Ice Cream Chefs is Singapore’s very own ice cream mixologist! They offer unique local ice cream flavours like kaya lotee, milo peng, and horlicks, alongside other cannot-go-wrong flavours like oreo cheesecake, peanut butter and jelly!
Armed with an array of mix-ins, watch as your creation takes shape on their frost-top, better known as the ‘chef’s rock’. For a taste of Singapore in ice cream-form, this is definitely an ice cream shop worth traveling for.
