Omg, are you talking about those traditional rainbow ice cream bread we grew up eating?

Yes. This one.

But if rainbow bread isn’t your thing, you could also choose to have ice cream with wafer.

 

Why so good got free ice cream?

It’s a collaboration between F&N Creameries and Klook to help preserve the traditional hawker cart ice cream. May this Singaporean heritage live on!

 

You sure anot. So how do I get it?

Very easy.

Download the Klook app to “book” the ice cream. Here’s the link for Apple users, and here’s the link for Android users. Remember to use the promo code “HELLOUNCLE” upon checkout to get it for free.

Also, please present the voucher on the Klook app to redeem it. It looks like this.

There is a QR code in the voucher (mine’s hidden behind that red box so you guys won’t steal it, hee hee) and a ‘Redeem Now’ button for the uncle to click on (ownself click not counted ah).

Woah… buy ice-cream need app ah?

Yes, even ice cream uncles are going digital now. In fact, this event is to help launch the cashless system for the three uncles.

 

So I just have to collect the ice cream on the date I booked? And from the specific ice cream cart?

That’s right. Please don’t pangseh the uncle. He will be sad.

 

Can I choose the flavour?

You can choose it on the day of collection. There’ll be old-school favourites like chocolate, raspberry ripple, peppermint, durian, and more. Sure beats all the newfangled fancy schmancy flavours.

What if it’s all sold out?

Don’t worry, each uncle will have 300 ice cream sandwiches to give out per day for three days, so there’s plenty to go around. But to avoid disappointment, book the ice cream in advance.
