Food Review: Salted Caramel Artisan Ice Cream

By Gladys Wee, Year 1, Diploma in Business Management 

Been studying the whole day at NYP? What to chill out off campus? Then head to Salted Caramel Artisan Ice Cream!

With a variety of popular flavours, there’s something for everyone. ‘Must Try’ flavours include: Cookies and Cream, Horlicks Tim Tam,  Earl Grey  and the signature Salted Caramel.

Fruit lovers can enjoy Mango, Avocado, Strawberry and Lychee flavours, all made from real fruits! If you like a little buzz in your ice cream, try the alcoholic flavours like Rum and Raisin, Kahlua, Stout & Chocolate and Baileys (but only if you are 18 and above please!).

If you’ve got a sweet tooth, popular flavours like Nutella, Chocolate Sorbet, Peanut Butter and Vanilla will make a lasting impression on your tasebuds.

The ice-cream is affordably priced at $3 for a single scoop, $5 for a double scoop and $7 for a triple scoop.

Bernice Ong, the 26-year-old owner said, “At Salted Caramel, the ice creams are made daily in small batches so as to ensure that the ice cream is of the freshest quality, with no artificial flavourings.”

For the ultimate indulgence, add some waffles and brownies at $3.50 each. The waffles are served with icing sugar and either maple or chocolate syrup, while the brownies are presented with icing sugar topped off with chocolate syrup.

If you want the classic pairing of ice-cream and cake, check out their Hazelnut Cake or a wide variety of chocolate and cheese-based cakes at $4 a slice. Pecan and apple pies are also available at $4.50 a slice.

Rounding off the experience is the delightful service that will smile its way into your hearts.  Part-time Supervisor Willius Koh said, “Ice Cream is happy food. Happy food with happy customers equate to happy staffs.” (How much nicer can they get?)

Going in a group of 4? Consider ordering a waffle with 4 scoops of ice cream. At $12.60, each person pays an ultra-affordable $3.15! That is almost as cheap as a single scoop of ice cream ($3)!

To get to Salted Caramel Artisan Ice Cream take a 15-minute ride on bus 162 towards 246F Upper Thomson Road from the Yio Chu Kang Bus Terminal near NYP.

Gladys is a first year Business Management student who loves participating in sports or watching it with an excited crowd. She enjoys hanging out with close friends and taking long naps when she is free.

Her dream is to visit every homemade ice cream shop there is in Singapore and try their waffles/brownies with ice cream! :D
