Was sorely deprived of my favourite ice creams during the circuit breaker, so I promptly made an order for Denzy when they resumed operations after a temporary closure. Their selection of flavours was trimmed down to optimise production - but even then, I had trouble selecting which to purchase!! Ended up with hojicha ($12), mixed berries ($16), dark chocolate ($16) and whiskey with salted pecan ($16) - snagged these at a 15% discount and with free delivery. They were very well received by the family!!

It’s impossible to narrow your selection down to one flavour, so we always end up with a double scoop ($8.40) 😋 the first cup featured hojicha with cereal milk. The slightly bitter tang of roasted tea was balanced by a sweeter finish. The second cup had dark chocolate with burnt rice! The rich, intense flavour is complemented by hints of bitterness & saltiness. I particularly liked that the burnt rice had lots of texture to it!

Been a couple of years since I’ve had BOP, and they’ve certainly grown in popularity since! Was surprised to find that they’ve retained largely the same selection.. But I suppose that is testament to how well loved these flavours are. We opted for a single scoop on cone($6). The mango sorbet was refreshing, syrupy thick with just the right amount of sweetness. The white chrysanthemum featured a milky base with floral notes, complemented by bitter cacao nibs. Made fresh, their thyme cones are a must-order!

Had a double scoop with 2 premium flavours ($7.40)! Had earl grey on the bottom, which the servers proudly proclaimed to be the best in Singapore. I found it a little too icy for my liking, but it definitely hits all the right flavour notes! Paired it with apple yakult yogurt, which tastes exactly as its name suggests.

Merely is always my ice cream parlour of choice when in town! Opted for a double scoop with 2 premium flavours ($7.40). Had valrhona chocolate on the bottom, intense in flavour and with a sticky consistency. Paired it with hazelnut, nutty with chunks of Kit Kat. The crowd in the afternoon is a lot more manageable than after dinner!

Was once again spoilt by choice! Tom’s Palette always features a spread, each unique. We got two 4 oz cups ($5) with 2 flavours each - ovaltine, mocha, rum & raisin and yuzu. I’m not the biggest fan of ovaltine but ended up picking it for its rich malt flavour, pairing it with a hint of coffee to balance the sweetness. The other cup held a tangy citrus, and the rum sure packed a punch!

Dropped by to purchase a chocolate pie, and spontaneously jumped on the band wagon to try their sweet potato ice cream ($2.20)! I’ve had my fair share of dismal experiences with their flavoured ice cream, but this one definitely ranks amongst the best. The saccharine sweetness hits you immediately and mellows out for the sweet potato to come through! My favourite part was definitely the cocoa cone.

Bit the bullet and finally tried Godiva’s highly acclaimed soft serve ($9) during their one for one promotion! Perhaps my expectations were too high, but the portion was painfully small for its price and quite sloppily made. Only the twist was available for redemption - it features dark chocolate and vanilla white chocolate! The soft serve is certainly decadent, and we enjoyed the chocolate crust on the cone. Probably would wait for their next promotion to repurchase!

Bread & Butterfly is a new kid on the block! They offer a variety of innovative flavours, with unique elements - cucumber, pumpkin and tomato; just to name a few. We opted for a single scoop ($5, +$1 per premium flavour) on a cone (+$1)! We tried their salted chocolate & almond brittle - the milk base was smooth and creamy, with the bulk of the flavour coming from the sweet almond brittle. While enjoyable, this was a little of a letdown as it melted quickly, and I doubt that the brittle is made in-house! Our second flavour was strawberry tomato - the sorbet has a distinctive strawberry taste and the tomato is not immediately evident, but I enjoyed it. There were also some herbs mixed in, adding another dimension. Their cone is flavoured with lavender and made fresh in-stores - I really liked its taste!! However, it’s not the crispiest and gets soggy from the melted ice cream.

Back for another round of double scoops ($6.40, + $1 per premium flavour)! Denzy has a large array of flavours, each made from superb ingredients. We paired dark chocolate with cereal milk in one, and elderflower mojito with mango blood orange & kombucha in the other. The first cup was rich and decadent, the intense cacao giving way to a sweeter finish. The second was much lighter and refreshing on the palate with bright bursts of flavour and a tart end!

It says a lot when my previous review here was less than a month ago :p got our usual double scoop ($5.40) (+$0.70 per premium flavour) with both old favourites and new flavours of the month 🥳 of note is Gianduia, a rich chocolate with hazelnuts - I thought it’d be like all other Nutella-esque flavours but this one really impressed me with its smooth nuttiness!! Bliss, their pink guava flavour, also won me over with its refreshing zest. Pistachio and rum & raisin were good as usual!

The team behind Geometry is always innovating and improving their ice cream, which makes it a joy to return! Got a double scoop ($5.40) as usual. Was surprised to find that they had zhnged their strawberry cheesecake (+$0.70) by adding peach to it - definitely made it more fragrant! Hojicha was super satisfying with its earthly roasted flavour.
