FLAVORS OF SINGAPORE
A NEW ICE CREAM COLLECTION FROM MORGENSTERN'S
In partnership with the Singapore Tourism Board, Morgenstern’s has created 4 ice cream flavors which feature interesting and unique elements of the Singaporean pantry. Each flavor highlights a different element typical of Singaporean ingredients: SAVORY, SWEET, SPICY, -- and of course -- BOOZY!
We have teamed up with tattoo artist moo.inks from Singapore who created original artwork for the package design of all 3 pints and 1 special popsicle. Growing up in Singapore, Moo.inks has always been attracted to the vibrant colours and fascinating sights of the island. Her unique art style brings odd, cute and occasionally funny into unholy matrimony. As explained by Moo, "I just want to make people smile— and also not be the only one laughing at my own joke."
Moo.inks is very awesome!
EDDIE'S EGGY CUSTARD ICE CREAM PINT
Sweet Corn Ice Cream, Salted Caramel Swirl with Salted Egg Yolk Granola
Salted Egg Yolk has become one of the favorite flavors of Singapore. Its rich umami profile lends itself to potato chips and sauces, but it is especially well suited for making custard and ice cream. Sweet corn is a traditional ingredient in Singaporean desserts and this rich corn ice cream is loaded with corn, caramel and salted egg yolk.
Moo: The design features a classic Singaporean bus and bus stop, and is largely inspired by our kanchiong (kahn-chi-ong, hasty or urgent) attitudes. On the pint, Eddie has missed the bus and is very salty about it– an experience Singaporeans are all too familiar with. The rim of the lid was made to resemble corn cobs.
PERCY'S PANDAN PLAYGROUND ICE CREAM PINT
Coconut Ice Cream, Pandan Jelly Swirl, Gula Melaka Marshmallow, Gula Melaka Syrup
Inspired by the flavors of the popular street drink Chendol which combines Pandan flavored Rice Jelly, Coconut Ice Cream and Gula Melaka Palm Sugar Syrup with Pandan Jelly from the palm leaf which has a flavor similar to vanilla. The Gula Melaka is a very rich brown sugar, with intense flavors of molasses and caramel. This Flavor is rich, satisfying and refreshing all at once!
Moo: Percy's Pandan Playground is a big nod to my childhood. I remember buying chendol popsicles right after school, and enjoying it at a playground with my friends. The bag seen on the pint pays homage to the number one must-have for any Singaporean kid from my time in school. You were definitely a cool kid if you had a Zinc bag.
TERRY'S TEH TIME ICE CREAM PINT
Ginger Tea Ice Cream, Black Pepper Candied Ginger
Ginger Milk Tea is a staple of traditional coffee shops in Singapore, a mix of Black Tea, Ginger and Condensed milk is poured from cup to cup to give it a frothy texture. We have created a spicy version of this classic beverage with Ginger Tea Ice Cream loaded with Spicy Black Pepper Candied Ginger. A super refreshing treat!
Moo: A spicy flavour deserves a spicy mascot, therefore Terry was birthed from the depths of my mind. He's seen laying seductively on the top of a coffee shop table, where Teh Halia is commonly served! In Singapore, tissue packets are used to chope (ch-owp, reserve or secure) tables and seats at hawker centres or coffee shops. It's an age old tradition, I thought it'd only be right to include one.
KATHY'S CALAMANSI GIN POPSICLE
Gin and Calamansi Citrus Sorbet, Candied Citrus, Condensed Milk Marshmallow
With the Singapore Sling representing the importance of gin to the cocktail culture of Singapore, it was only right that we created a gin pop! Made with the famously tart Calamansi Lime Juice, Tanglin Gin, Candied Citrus and a Condensed Milk Marshmallow.
Moo: In the 1800s, many of the Chinese in Singapore moved to Tanglin. It used to be crawling with tigers! But after settling in, the people started to cultivate herbs and spices like sireh (see-reh, betel leaves) which adorn the side of the box. I wanted to do something fun and funky with this lovely history of Tanglin!
