Milca Hokkaido Soft Ice Cream

Small cone, S$2.00 (promotional price)

My friend Vincent – who’s also a fervent foodie – has, on numerous occasions, raved and raved about the fabulous milk ice cream he had while holidaying in Hokkaido. So when Milca opened at the new ION Orchard, he was one of the early birds who went to check it out. His report: Not as good as, but close to the real deal.

That was nearly 7 months ago. I’ve been wanting to try it too, but hesitated because of its S$5.00 price tag. Five bucks for soft serve ice cream? Hmm….

But two weeks ago, I passed by the stall, and it was going for an easy S$2.00, albeit downsized. Of course I bought one right away!

Mmm…now I know why Vincent couldn’t stop raving about it. It’s truly divine!

It’s silky smooth, slightly airy, and not too sweet. It also feels creamy, but doesn’t leave a rich after-taste.

Even more surprising was how delectable the waffle cone was. It’s really thin, light, and crispy!

In no time, I gobbled up the entire cone. This is seriously addictive stuff!

Ice cream, "frozen" for eternity

Various toppings are available, should you prefer to spice things up. But in my mind, Milca ice cream+cone is already a marriage made in heaven, and needs no third party to wreck this perfect union.
