It’s been a long time since I looked at their page for updates on seasonal flavours, so I was super duper stoked to see they’ve got this Peanut Butter & Jelly one when I popped by couple of days back! I’ve always loved Brother Bird’s softserve creations, but I gotta say they’ve really done my childhood favourite a huge justice here. The peanut butter shines right through from the first lick, intense enough for me yet still palatable for the impartial. And, call me a child if you will, but I love how the jam’s unevenly incorporated through the soft serve, so there’s that element of surprise every time I get a little jam in my teaspoon😍

Anyone who’d bother listening to tales of my short stay in France would’ve heard me wax lyrical about Jeff de Bruge’s gobsmacking salted caramel soft serve; and as I stood over Geometry’s display tasting the little teaspoon of Salted Caramel, the first thing that came to mind was “oh my god this is Jeff de f*cking Bruges.” It’s smooth, creamy, aggressive, with its sharp edge just lightly tempered down by the nutty caramel. Like I really can’t describe it better than it’s my fave and I love it to bits. The nondescript-looking Black Sesame Soy Milk isn’t to be missed either. They’ve somehow managed to bring across the intense roastiness of the black sesame together with that mellow, earthy fragrance unique to soy milk, resulting in a flavour that’s oddly familiar yet utterly distinct.

Genmaicha + the geniuses behind Matchaya = take my money. Take it, take it all. It’s roasty, earthy, nutty, with that distinctive popped rice fragrant lingering at the back that clearly sets it apart from the other Japanese tea flavours. Everyone knows creations from these folks will never disappoint, but I can’t say I’m not always surprised by each and every new flavour they churn out. This seasonal flavour’s only available at ICON Village, and no matter how many times I’ve said this imma say it again: haul ass down, pronto.

Available in 2 flavours, both Lunar’s Earl Grey & Milky Way soft serves blew my mind and were so much more impressive than I expected. They’re not your traditional soft serves in that they aren’t entirely smooth or creamy, in fact oddly a little icy — but don’t let that fool you, the flavour’s undeniably rich and intense. And once you get past that it’s actually icy and let that teaspoon of soft serve just sit and melt in your mouth, what you get instead is a paradoxically creamy and silky treat.

Couldn’t resist getting one since I was near the area, especially since hearing it’s barely just arrived on our shores - 2 days in fact! Cheese tarts, Hokkaido cheesecakes, cheese foam even; these I’ve heard of, but a cheese cone?? Everyone’s been getting their sundaes but no I just HAD to try these cone for myself! And guess what, totally #noragrats. Flavour was so distinct and discernible, strong and quite in-your-face I may say, though pairing very nicely with their soft serve without being overwhelming. To say I was pleasantly surprised is a total understatement. Some would prolly like to pair it with the milk soft serve for the flavours to complement one another, though I’d personally totally go for the cheese soft serve (which is honestly fairly mild) with the cone for a totally yummy cheese dessert 😋

I must admit feeling a little confused first seeing this, like am I supposed to eat them together? One after another? But when you think about it it kinda makes sense. We’ve been pairing grapes with cheese all along, be it as wine with cheese or a regular fruit and cheese platter; so this isn’t really all that strange. The soft serve on its own was smooth as usual, though perhaps a tad too sweet for some and highly reminiscent of our childhood QOO drink. Definitely would recommend having a little bit of that nutty brie in each bite to balance it all!

Saying that I’ve been here twice in 2 weeks doesn’t sound much, till you realise I’ve only got the weekends to food hop...so that’s twice in 4 days? 😱 Can’t help myself when they’ve got such fantastic gelato! We got the Pistachio, Mango Alfonso, Piedmont Hazelnut, and Tiramisu this time and I must say every flavour was so on point 👌🏻 I’ve never been the biggest fan of fruity gelato flavours (I mean I can have a teaspoon or two but I’d never get a cup of it) but holy their Mango is so damn good there’s just no resisting it.

I took literally 10minutes to decide what to get cause everything looked so damn friggin yummy, and ended up with this Kinako Kuromitsu bowl with Houjicha soft serve. Needless to say their soft serve’s nailed it as usual, the roasty nutty aroma of the houjicha distinct and well balanced with a rich, creamy body, and just the right amount of sweetness. What surprised me though was how great the other ingredients were! Loved the soft tender bite of the warabi mochi against the bouncy shiratama dangos 😍

Yet another round of softserves that has me craving for more. In line with Midautumn Festival (wooo my favourite time of the year!), Brother Bird's latest flavours are their D24 Durian and Mooncake. No I didn't say that wrong; it's a mooncake softserve. A light yet distinctive lotus base, that goes perfectly with their salted egg mochi donut bursts. Quite possibly the best deconstructed mooncake I've had. My picture of that sucks so you're gonna have to settle for the D24 instead, which honestly is a fab option too. Not too sweet, with globs of durian flesh and it's characteristic bitterness cutting through the dessert.

Wanted to be a kiasu Singaporean and just have a few samples to taste, but damn I was sold after the first teaspoon. Trust me it was a battle within myself to choose between all those fab flavours, so when I finally did settle on 3 I was adamant no one ate any bit of it lolol. I got the Mascarpone & Fig (light and creamy, with specks of jammy figs, and a distinct underlying hint of the cheese), Pistachio (roasty, earthy, and rich), and Hazelnut (possibly one of the best renditions I've tried) — all were so friggin' delish. If you're a fan of sorbets, their Strawberry one's pretty tasty as well, though perhaps a tad sweet for some.

Major sore throat that's been going on for a week, but that's not gonna stop me from coming for their August special flavours — Syrup Limau and Horlicks Dinosaur. The first's basically a rose syrup and lime juice kopitiam drink now soft serve-ified. Just in case the colour's not enough of a persuasion to order it, it's actually really yummy with the rose fragrance hitting you strong while still staying pleasant. I'd say it's more akin to bandung than syrup limau, but hey no complaints there. Imma huge fan of malt though so not gonna deny that my favourite's the Horlicks Dinosaur. The familiar creaminess and maltiness of our childhood drink comes on strong enough to please hardcore fans like me, without being too intense and overpowering. And with that drizzle of milo sauce and crunch? C'est parfait.

You can kinda tell if the texture of frozen desserts are spot on just by trudging a spoon through them; so when my spoon didn't exactly slide effortlessly through this Earl Grey Soft Serve, instead meeting a wee resistance before lopping off a chunk, I readied myself for a mouthful of icy soft serve. Oh but lo and behold, what I tasted instead was paradoxically the exact opposite. Melting in my mouth so quickly it had to be an obvious sign of an icy dessert, but with a flavour so creamy and well-rounded it was confounding. Now texture aside fans of the floral tea would find its flavour exceedingly prominent here, though I'd personally have liked it a little less sweet.
