F&B retailers are happily slapping the word “Hokkaido” left and right on their products these days.

But Naganuma Ice Co., a popular soft serve brand from Hokkaido, actually looks pretty legit.

Probably because it’s actually from Hokkaido.

The brand uses 100 per cent raw Hokkaido milk, which is apparently creamier and more intense than regular milk.

Here are some highlights from their menu.

Variety of flavours

The Creme Brulee Rich Milk Soft Serve (S$8) is made with rich milk soft serve beneath a layer of crème brulee:

The custard, sprinkled with sugar and torched, makes it a hot and cold dessert.

The cone for this is an eggier option than the usual wafer cone.

The Red Wine Soft Serve (S$6, additional 50 cents for cone) is made from Japanese red wine.

Naganuma Ice, Hokkaido's best-selling and most popular soft serve has opened its first store in Singapore on 1 December 2018 at Carlton City Hotel. Touted to draw queues of up to an hour at its several Japan and Taiwan outlets, Singaporeans may well have a new place to queue up at in search of good eats! The store is named Naganuma Ice no ie, serving a total range of 6 soft serve and 12 gelato flavours at any time, with new flavours rotated in on a regular basis. Certified as using 100% Hokkaido raw milk, one can really taste the freshness and difference in the gelato here, with the cheese and raw milk flavours letting one taste the unique qualities of Hokkaido raw milk in its most unadulterated form. In frame: My personal favourite red wine soft serve which is surprisingly understated, give it a try, you won’t regret it! Also, don’t forget to try the picture-worthy Crème Brûlée Soft serve ($8), now with an opening promo price of $6 from 1 to 6 December 2018. Prices for Gelato start at $5.50 (single flavour cup), $6.50 (double flavour cup), add $0.50 for cone ? ~ #sgdesserts #naganumaiceco #carltoncityhotel ~ #sgfoodsteps #sgfood #sgfoodie #sgfoodiary #sgeats #foodsg #sgcafe #sgcafefood #sgcafehopping #instafood_sg #openricesg #burpple

Despite not having any alcohol content, this flavour has been a hit among customers.

Parfaits (S$8.50) are also available:

. 1️⃣Softserve parfait [$8.50] 2️⃣ Creme brûlée softserve [$8] . . Apart from the wide range of Hokkaido gelato and softserve flavours, these 2 items featured here are exclusively available only in the soon-to-be opening Singapore outlet! ✨ The Softserve parfait comes with Hokkaido milk flavour by default, which I requested for a change to Red wine (my personal favourite flavour among all I tried), along with MATCHA sauce ?! Served with a base of fresh whipped cream, mango jelly, crispy biscuit crumbs and lastly topped off with a stick of dark chocolate crunch, the softserve is smooth with a lighter body, less creamy and thick as compared to the gelato, which makes it more refreshing to the palate. The Red Wine softserve featured comes without alcohol, hence it’s safe for kids to consume as well! ?? Flavour is tangy and slightly fizzy, resembling a Kyoho grape flavoured calpis instead of an alcohol. Matcha sauce was unfortunately overshadowed by its tangy note ?. Nevertheless, the other components – typically the dark chocolate crunch and sugar biscuit crumbles serve as a pleasant crunch factor to the smooth, icy delight! ?? Next up, the creme brûlée cone comes with a base of Hokkaido milk gelato, one that carries off a hint of dairy aroma albeit not too overwhelming, less milky as compared to the gelato, along with a middle layer of creamy, curd-like custard and lastly topped off with a layer of caramelised sugar that’s torched to an ideal crisp perfection (swipe to end to view)! ? Imagine that sharp crackling sound as you nibble onto it!?? I like how it wasn’t too overwhelming in sweetness intensity unlike what it seems to be, one that my tooth would gladly indulge in comfortably, with no regrets!? Do stay tune to my next post on the gelato flavours that’s offered here as well ??! . . [PS: Although the stall is not officially open yet (tentatively in the first week of December), you can still visit them at their pop-up store at @isetansg scotts from 23rd Nov-6 Dec] . . Thanks @naganumaiceco for satisfying my sweet tooth greatly with an ice cream buffet ??and @tastytested for extending the invite! ??‍♀️ ? . . . . #burpple #sgfoodie #naganumaiceco

Otherwise, fall back on their classic Rich Milk Soft Serve (S$6, additional 50 cents for cone):

They also have gelatos from S$5.50 for a single flavour cup, such as the Yubari Melon Gelato (a.k.a the well-known cantaloupe from Japan) and Matcha Gelato.

. 1️⃣Double flavour Gelato [$6.50/ cup, $7/cone] 2️⃣Yame matcha [$7.50 single flavour cup, $8.50 double flavour] 3️⃣Softserve [$6/cup, $6.50/cone] . Flavours of gelato includes: Yame Matcha?, Fresh Milk?, Double Cheese, Strawberry Milk, Yubari Melon, Mango Yogurt, Haskap Yogurt❤️, Pumpkin, Chocolate, Banana, Azuki Beans. Among all that I’ve sampled, my top 3 personal favorite would be Yame Matcha, Fresh Milk and Haskap (honeyberry)Yogurt. Using a premium grade of Yame Matcha, I love how the characteristic earthy note is distinct, lingering albeit mellow here, coming with a subtle bitter undertone as well. Of course as a hardcore matchaholic I would prefer it to be more intense but I am glad that the flavour is still distinct and not too milky! ✨ I paired it with the Haskap yogurt which’s pretty similar to a mixed berry yogurt, coming with a tangy, refreshing note. The fresh milk here is definitely stronger in its dairy flavour as compared to the softserve, creamier and more lasting to the palate with a heavier body. Using fresh 100% pure Hokkaido milk, the characteristic dairy aroma was also more prominent and lingering here, one that I surprisingly enjoyed especially since I wasn’t a huge fan of milk gelato in the first place. The chocolate flavourwas not bad as well, semi-dark and not too sweet, embedded with cocoa nibs within that added a pleasant crisp mouthfeel. Texture of these freshly churned gelato are smooth, creamy but beware that it melts rather fast as compared to the softserve! ? Softserve flavours that we tried the other day includes: Red Wine❤️, Rich Milk, Strawberry and Ebisu Pumpkin. Featured here is the Red Wine that’s without alcohol hence suitable for all ages! ? . . ?: @naganumaiceco @tastytested 2️⃣?: @tastytested . [PS: In case you are eagerly waiting to try these softserve and gelato flavours before the official opening, they are available now from 23rd Nov-6th Dec at @isetansg scotts] . . . . #burpple #naganumaiceco #sgfoodie
