ice cream overload.

I'm suffering from an overdose on ice cream. I know it seems boring that I'm writing about ice cream again but I thought I have to share the ice cream experience I had over the week.

To cut to the chase, my family were in the area and thus decided to pop by Island Creamery to ease the heat we were feeling under the hot sun. I guess we were going to The Daily Scoop too often so we just wanted a bit of a change. So when we were choosing our flavours, something came over me to be adventurous so I chose the Tiger Beer sorbet. It's supposed to be their specialty or something. If you think it's a novelty already, I think they've outdone themselves by having a Guinness Stout ice cream on their menu.














Tiger Beer Sorbet

So yes, I made my choice and I tell you, it is by far the weirdest sorbet/ice cream I've ever had in my life. I'm not saying that it's not good. In fact, it's not too bad cos you really feel like you're drinking the beer. It's just that it's in a semi-solid form. The smell and the taste is all there but it's still too weird for me. Maybe it's cos I've never been big on alcohol (save for my lychee martini ice cream). Having said that though, I do encourage for those who see it on the menu to try it. In fact, I going to have a go at the Guinness Stout flavour when I see it; just to see if it can top the Tiger Beer flavour.

Other than that, rest of the family had familiar flavours like Soursop, Kahlua Coffee and another of their local specialty, Teh Tarik. It's pretty good cos of the creaminess and the burnt taste from the soaked tea leaves. Again, like drinking the actual thing but only that it's frozen.

All in all, I think it puts out a good fight with The Daily Scoop although I do have my own preference for one over the other. For those who've been to both places, what do you think?


Update: I think I've found a winner. The Pulot Hitam flavour is an absolute must try! Ok. maybe I SHOULD stop now.
