Fans of Ben & Jerry’s are in for a double treat – with the opening of their new Flagship Scoop Store at 313 Somerset Discovery Walk, one can enjoy no less than 18 exciting ice cream flavours, along with new shakes, sundaes, ice cream cakes and merchandise in the heart of Singapore.
What’s more, with baked goods and herbs being supplied by SCORE Bakery and Edible Garden City, a rehabilitation outlet for inmates and urban farming group respectively, who’s to say you can’t indulge your sweet tooth without doing a little good to society? 😀
On top of that, the Flagship Scoop Store will also host a new Benefit Tuesday Night programme for local welfare organizations to engage the public; the first of which was tonight’s preview of the Peace, Love & Commoonity Sundae, courtesy of international food artist (and my personal favourite food Instagrammer of all time), Samantha Lee.
With Free Cone Day in full swing, Samantha’s demonstration took place in the Community Action Hub, a gorgeous alfresco area furnished with cow-themed and wooden furniture, alongside a display cabinet of merchandise.
After following her on Instagram for the longest time, I was completely in awe of how she put her sundae together, topping off chunky chocolate brownies and vanilla ice cream with fresh fruit, raisins and even chocolate ears and syrup of the cow’s facial features! Talk about details.
With the demo done, it was time to try our hands at food art:
Here’s mine and the guys of Ranting Panda’s attempt to get creative. 😛 Didn’t realise why they chose a panda till they introduced themselves after!
If you wanna try Samantha’s creation (and you should!), it’s available at the Flagship Scoop Store till 31 Aug 2015 for $17.90. All profits will be donated to the Benefit Tuesday Night partners, so really, dessert and a good cause, why not? 😀
