Ben & Jerry's (A Singapore Food Post)

One of the best things about living in a cosmopolitan city like Singapore is the presence of various local and international brands.  From clothes to home furnishings to food -- they're well-represented here.  Our family may not be much of a shopper, but the availability of dining establishments here, whether serving savory or sweet (or both) fare, is something we take true delight in.

The Husband and the Little One loves ice cream for dessert.  And what better place to have a scope than at Ben & Jerry's.

Ben & Jerry's at Vivo City, Singapore

This American ice cream brand has bringing their brand of ice cold sweets to both locals and visitors of the Lion City alike since opening here in 2004.  And while I don't really consider them a part of the artisanal frozen dessert scene, they do sell very imaginative flavors, with highly fun and unusual monickers (think Chunky Monkey which is banana ice cream with fudge chunks and walnuts; or Maple Tree Hugger which is maple ice cream with a maple caramel swirl and brown sugar brownie chunks, among others), that can suit each discerning palate.

Strawberry Cheesecake (front) and Sweet Cream & Cookies (back)

My fave is Strawberry Cheesecake -- creamy strawberry ice cream with a thick crush graham cracker swirl.  It's my go-to flavor whenever we decide to have a scoop at B&J's.  Chocolate Fudge Brownie is a close second.  The name says it all!

So sinful but oh so good...

Price range from S$ 4.90/Php161.70* (small size) to S$12.90/Php425.70* (large serving).  Toppings and other accompaniments (like waffle cones for S$1.50/Php49.50* and waffle dish/bowl for S$1.80/Php59.40*) are also available.

A word of caution, though.  Ben & Jerry's ice creams are extremely sweet so be sure to have lots of water on hand.  We, for one, do not indulge in this sinful dessert often.  One a month suits us just fine.  J 

*S$1 = Php33

Breakfast is an indulgence for me.  Mainly because I am super lazy to have breakfast.  But when I do, there is no better start to your morni...
