The childhood delicacy you forgot about
I totally forgot about those colourful sticks of potong ice cream until I saw them again at NTUC. I used to eat them so often as a kid, but the habit died when more “hip” ice cream brands such as Ben and Jerry’s became popular.
The potong ice cream comes in many flavours such as red bean, durian, coconut and mango. My favourite is the durian potong ice cream. It really tastes like durian! It has a smooth, icy texture which can be quite hard to bite into it’s frozen solid. I prefer my potong ice creams to be a little melted so it’s soft and creamy. The ice cream is sweet and flavourful, and the durian taste is not overpowering. One thing I don’t like about these potong ice creams is their wooden stick which can have several splinters on it. It’s just a personal fear of swallowing the splinters and hurting my throat.
Every Singaporean has to have a taste of potong ice cream at least once . It is a thing of our past. The unique flavour and creamy texture is worth a try.
