Made it back to try this month’s flavours! Geometry hits all the right notes as usual. This double cup ($5.40) features strawberry earl grey (+ $0.70, strong tea flavour with the lingering sweetness of jam) and mango pomelo (+ $0.70, perfectly smooth and richly flavoured mango sorbet, with bursts of bitterness from the pomelo) 👍🏼🌟

Finally tried the gelato here! Got the double scoop ($6.50 + $0.70 per premium flavour) + drink (~$5 + $1 for ice) set under burpple beyond. The pistachio was nutty but rather sweet. Interestingly, the cereal milk tasted exactly like fruit loops with small bits of cereal inside - I liked that it different from usual renditions! The peanut butter & jelly tasted like Reese, but the jam was a little odd. Our favourite was actually the coffee caramel - which had no hint of caramel, but a strong coffee flavour with lingering bitterness. I wasn’t a big fan as I found the ice cream too sweet, and was disappointed because it melted very quickly (we had 1/3 cup full of melted ice cream at the end, that none of us who stomach finishing). The drinks weren’t anything to shout about either!

This definitely caught my attention while scouring for burpple deals at Jewel! The creme brûlée soft serve ($8) boasts of 100% raw milk soft serve in a waffle cone, topped with custard and caramelised sugar. Turned out to be a very good choice!! The ice cream was rich in texture and flavour, without being overly sweet, and helped to balance the creme brûlée. The top was a wave of sweetness and had a nice crispy bite. Surprisingly, the custard was my favourite part! Saved it to the very last to finish off.

Finally made a trip down to the highly raved creamery! The ice cream is stored in traditional pozzetti to ensure its freshness. We went for a double scoop ($7.60) - the first had pistachio (+$0.70) and green tea with roasted rice (+$0.70) whilst the other had pistachio (+$0.70) and coconut with pandan. Also had them served on a waffle cone (+$1)! The pistachio was rich in flavour and I particularly enjoyed the small bits of nuts. The green tea with roasted rice tasted exactly like the Korean rice tea I love, especially with its smokey taste. The coconut pandan was reminiscent of kaya and extremely rich, but I found the sweetness cloying after a while. Serving only 8 flavours daily, I was a little disappointed that there wasn’t a chocolate-based flavour on rotation that day. In addition, the price is rather steep ($10 for one cone alone after all the additional surcharges!) so I’m glad for the burpple beyond deal! But with its name inspired by the neurotransmitter, Dopa Dopa sure brings happiness :-)

Headed down specially over the long weekend to try their $5.40 special - 2 scoops of gelato on every Singaporean’s favourite rainbow bread! This time, I tried the chrysanthemum (distinct flavour that was a tad sweet, but I liked the surprise bits of goji berries) and kopi gu you (was amazed at the intense and rich flavour). The bread is no longer available, but be sure to catch the local flavours before they get switched out next month!

aRoma is a fixture during meals in Bugis - the gelato is rich, creamy and very flavourful. The new burpple beyond deals did away with the double scoops and now have the single scoop on a cone as an option. We got our favourite pistachio, and decided to try the lemon liquor! It was surprisingly refreshing and textured with some lemon rind.
