We know, that place is dangerous territory — where temptations flow like no tomorrow and any remnants of self-control we thought we had fade into oblivion. But, some days just call for an ice cream treat.

To place an order, you must have a minimum order of $50 for delivery. Free delivery is offered for orders above S$80.
Ever felt left out when your group of friends decide to pick the latest and hippest ice-cream café as their new favourite hangout spot?

At its heart, ice cream is merely a composition of milk and cream but what sets a good one apart from a great one is the quality of the ingredients used and the careful manipulation of sweetness and richness. A brand that never fails to exceed expectations, presenting an intensely pleasurable experience with every lick, is Häagen-Dazs.
In the spirit of Christmas, the colossal brand has released two limited edition flavours—Cream Cheese Mochi and Tiramisu Mochi. An extraordinary marriage between traditional Asian mochi and European desserts, each and every soft, pillowy morsel presents a flavour and textural profile that far surpasses the common ice cream dessert. For an amplified experience, head on down to one of their stores to enjoy full-on crafted desserts featuring the two seasonal offerings such as the So Mochi Together Fondu and the oh-so-gorgeous Gondola Tiramisu.
A duo that aims to bring joy and sheer decadence to both the young and the old, what better way to soak up the festive Yule, than to cosy up around your loved ones, sharing and indulging in top-quality ice cream?
