These 6 Rose-Flavoured Foods Are The Perfect Way To Celebrate Your Love Of Millennial Pink

With the rising popularity of millennial pink, it seems rose-flavoured things have come into trend in the world of F&B. The humble ingredient has come a long way since our first taste of it in Bandung. Now, it’s found its way into mooncakes, crepes and even fried chicken!

Not only does it smell great, rose has many health benefits, including antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and moisturising properties.

If you’re a fan of the floral flavour, here’s a list of 6 foods and drinks that put rose front and centre!

1. Rose Mille Crepes

The little rose petals inside each cookie add beauty and elegance to the entire tin. The cookie is not too flaky, while still remaining nicely crumbly.

Because each batch of cookies is made without eggs, milks, preservative, they are also low in sugar – definitely a big plus by us!

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll know Cha Tra Mue has been making waves in Singapore with the launch of their rose tea, which comes in three flavours: Rose Milk Tea, Honey Rose Tea and Lychee Rose Tea.

Their cups are all very Instagram-worthy, and we think they deserve the title of “Bangkok’s prettiest tea”.

Of the three drinks, the hot favourite is the Rose Milk Tea ($4.50) – a cup of  fragrant Thai milk tea that has a faint taste of rose and a whiff of floral fragrance. For those who are slightly lactose-intolerant, try the Honey Rose Tea and Lychee Rose Tea. These refreshing drinks will keep you going for the rest of the day!

Antoinette serves an exquisite Superlova ($10.70) – Rose finger sponge cake with raspberry jelly, raspberry caviar & crumble, which is delectably lifted by a yuzu cream. They gel seamlessly together into a pleasantly creamy treat with light floral notes. The taste is neither overpowering nor elusive – truly a rose creation that’s deserving of admiration.

The ornate pastry is served with a Rose macaron on top, which consists of two light and crisp cookie shells sandwiching a delicate rose buttercream filling. While great with the rest of the cake, you’ll love it on its own too!

These rose creations are not only easy on the eyes, they also play well with the taste buds.

The great thing about rose is that because it’s light, it doesn’t overpower the other flavours it’s brought together with. If you love your millennial pink and love a light, floral flavour to go with your food or drink, these are a must-try.
