One of the best things about traveling to a new place is checking out the food in supermarkets and grocery stores. Discovering local brands and flavors you’ve never heard of or even considered! For a westerner coming to Singapore, the food scene delivers big time on this point.
This post is about a specific area of discovery, namely my mission to taste and review all the flavors of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream that Singapore has but that I can’t find at home. This is one thing I love about Ben & Jerry’s – their ability to experiment with delicious and unexpected combos. In my opinion, they blow all of the competitors completely out of the water.
Here in Singapore, Ben & Jerry’s even have an online delivery service! Just go online and choose your flavor. I don’t know what delivery costs though, but I’m guessing you’ve probably have to be pretty loaded, since one pint of B&J here in Singapore costs about 16$! Yes, I’m not joking. It’s insane..
So what are the candidates that I’ll hunt down during my 4 month stay here? Let’s line em’ up! Which one would you like to try?
