Imagine sitting at a little cafe away from the cityscape. The rain just stopped and you were just looking out of the window at the drops trickling down. Lovers and small families sat around square white tables, just enjoying the quiet moment and a scoop of their favourite flavours of ice cream.
You wondered at your two scoops of ice cream – Lychee Martini and Strawberry Shortcake – White, pink, sweet and childlike yet with a tinge of mischief.
The bite of Lychee Martini was sorbet-y and creamy with bits of lychee lingering in your tongue. It reminded you of childhood days when you were scooping canned lychees with syrup, and also the partying days when you did not want to get too drunk.
You also watched the ice cream being churned in front of your very eyes. Cherry Brandy, Passion Pinada, Banana Fantasy, Unusually Apple, Kahlua Krunch and Bailey’s Choc Chip all wanted to make you fall in love with them.
It just made you enjoy the simplest things in life. So what if your best friends Ben & Jerry were not around. This smooth goodness made you proud enough to want to introduce this to your friends overseas.
There were some words on the wall which said “Men cannot live on ice cream alone but woman surely can” You smiled and thought to yourself, “What utter rubbish, yet how true”
It did not matter. The Daily Scoop indeed lived up to name – you can have one every day.
