Chase away the extension of Circuit Breaker (CB) blues with traditional comfort food – ice cream sandwiches! These treats of happiness are made with an ice cream block sandwiched between biscuit or bread, and are sold by ice cream vendors from their iconic ice cream vehicle.
Typically, these vendors rely on the flow of human traffic for sales but can no longer do so with the CB in place. Thankfully, we can still support these businesses as they are offering to sell and deliver their ice cream blocks to our homes.
Quite a few vendors withdrew their delivery services after the CB measures were tightened. So here’s a current list of the vendors that are still in operation during this CB period.
1. Tan Lye Huat 陳爺爺 Traditional Ice Cream
Tan Lye Huat Traditional Ice Cream offers free next day delivery islandwide with every order of three tubs and above. Two tubs and below incurs a reasonable delivery fee of $5. The wafer biscuits are sold for $2/pack and each pack contains 32 pieces. The rainbow bread is $3 per loaf. You’ll find flavours such as vanilla, coffee, sweet corn, chocolate and more. Flavours like lime ripple are only available while stocks last.
