Chocolates, strawberry or vanilla flavours… These are nothing compared to unique ice cream flavours you can try in Singapore. Our home-grown ice cream artisans have fused together local flavours and the ice cold treat to concoct the most unique composition around the island.Here are some flavours that we have gathered!Chilli Crab/Black Pepper Crab
Photo Credit: Burpple/Shawn LohYes, we are talking about Chilli Crab and Black Pepper Crab ice cream here. Such unthinkable flavours as ice-creams can be quite mind-blowing. As they are considered novelty food, they are very popular amongst young daredevils! Despite being novelty, the quality of the ice cream is high!Where can you find this?

Made with natural Greek yoghurt and the popular grape-flavoured Yakult drink (probiotic cultured milk drink), this sorbet is light and refreshing, much like your frozen yoghurt, which is a great treat in this humidity.Where can you find this?

With a consistency like Kaya spread, I wouldn’t mind replacing my morning jam spread with this if given a choice!Where can you find this?

With the taste of soy beancurd, a local dessert, as the main note of the ice cream, the addition of ginger-infused gula melaka (palm sugar) sauce makes it more wholesome and oddly-satisfying!Where can you find this?

Photo Credit: Instagram|iamnotrachelSoy Sauce, an everyday condiment that you find in your kitchen is no longer a supplement to your mains, but the star of this unique ice cream. The colour of the sauce gives off a brown hue to the ice cream. Looking a little like your typical chocolate ice cream, you will find the ice cream as much a delight, with a soy sauce caramel base sprinkled with bits of salted chocolate bark and sesame seeds.Where can you find this?

The melon flavour is unique to this particular cart. Remember to have tissues ready as eating these can be quite a messy situation, but the experience is definitely worth it!
