Cold Rock Ice Creamery was the first of three food places for my special birthday celebration for Daphne, the other two being Barnacles Restaurant at Rasa Sentosa Shangri-La and PS Cafe at Orchard Palais. It's all part of this "event" that I planned and it is called Project Cookie Love!
I chose Cold Rock because I know they have very good ice-cream here, and also because I only wanted us to have something light before dinner. And since it was so scorching hot outside, you can imagine how heavenly it felt having the smooth cold ice-cream sliding down our throats. Simple lovely =)
Like all the "boutique" ice-cream parlours springing up across the island, Cold Rock is no different in having its very own set of unique or house flavours, ranging from Ferrero chocolate to honeycomb to bubblegum. Cold rock ice-cream is really just a way of mixing the different selected flavours of ice-cream with the chosen toppings on a cold slab of rock (although it looks pretty metallic to me) so that you get a real mix of taste rather than eating separate scoops of ice-cream.
Mix One: Dark Chocolate + Honeycomb + Maltesers + Mini M&Ms
I think we got exactly what we wanted on try number one. Real chocolatey taste mixed with the sweet milkiness of honeycomb ice-cream, further enhanced with crispy maltesers and sweet M&Ms. A delightful combination that made us decide on getting another cup to share!
Mix Two: Cookies and Cream + Honeycomb + Violet Crumble
Of course, we wanted to try something a little different, but I was extremely convinced that it was the honeycomb that contributed to the smooth sweetness to our previous mix. This time I chose Violet Crumble chocolate as our topping, which Daphne approved very much.
So, which Mix was our favourite???
The winner is none other than...
Mix One: Dark Chocolate + Honeycomb + Maltesers + Mini M&Ms with a fantastic score of 9.5/10!
This simply trashes the disappointing Marvelous Cream ice creamery at Raffles City Link. I think I will only eat ice-cream either from Cold Rock Ice-Creamery or Ben & Jerry's from now on hahaha. Oh gee, although I'm typing this at such a late hour, I'm so having an ice-cream craving now heh!
Of course, our mix is our personal favourite but feel free to try out as many flavours and combinations as you like, especially since there's so much to choose from, both ice-cream and toppings.
