Ice creams are not just any kind of desserts. They are nine-letter words that give you an unexplainable euphoric rush.
For us Malaysians, there’s a few unique ice creams that only we can identify with and have been a great part of our childhood.
So, let’s reminisce the good times when we were in carefree days and our only worry is if we ate too much ice cream.
Here are seven ice creams we’ve had and still love until today!
1. Ice Cream Potong
This ice cream is probably a staple in almost every Malaysian household. No ice cream could beat the classic flavours of red bean, durian, corn, and cendol.
Sometimes, if you go to weddings, you’ll even be treated to these wonderful frozen desserts. You can’t deny the fact that you might tapau some of it from weddings.
2. Ice Cream Pong
The childhood favourite of most school-going children in Malaysia, the colourful ice lollies are widely sold at sundry shops and ice-cream sellers on their motorcycles, who wait eagerly in front of the schools every time the period’s over.
The best part about this ice cream is, it’s shareable. It’s also the cheapest ice cream and available here, like the one by Wang Wang.
3. Ice Cream Malaysia
This is where Malaysians’ creativity soar. You can make any ice cream your heart desires – just mix up the concoction and fill it up in plastic tubes and boom!
Frozen custom made ice creams. Breaking the ice cream into two and hearing that snapping sound gives you some sort of satisfaction nothing can replace.
The most common flavours would obviously be milo, assam boi, limau, sirap, bandung, sarsi and blackcurrant.
4. Ice Cream Calong
The ice cream normally comes in a cone, but in Penang, it’s served with Bengali bread. It tastes the best with some crushed peanuts as toppings.
The treat comes in many popular flavours, including strawberry, chocolate, vanilla, durian and corn. You should try chocolate and durian, its the best combo ever!
5. Mat Kool Icecream
Mat Kool! Mat Kool Kawanku! You’d be lying if you said that this jingle doesn’t make your heart beat faster.
The Mat Kool ice cream motorcycle offers a wide variety of ice creams that are made of your sweet, velvety dreams.
Just thinking of their traffic light flavoured ice cream comes with a surprise jelly filling in the middle are making us salivate!
6. Roti Ice Cream
Do you know what’s good on a hot, sunny day? A nice soft, fluffy bun complimented with three generous scoops of ice creams. It’s simple but delicious.
Because less is more. The beautiful marriage of yam, corn, vanilla, chocolate and strawberry will put a smile on anyone’s face.
Frequently sold on motorcycles, this ice cream is so cheap that you can literally treat the whole village.
7. Walls Vienetta
This ice cream was very popular back in the 90s. Plus, the ad made it look so tempting. The Vienetta looks really expensive with its sexy ice cream folds and layers.
Although it looked luxurious, you didn’t really have to break the bank to buy one and you can share it with the whole family!
Your childhood wouldn’t be complete if you didn’t eat your heart out to these frozen confectionaries.
