[Tokyo] Some claim that Cremia is the BEST soft serve ice cream you can have, in the world.
The Japanese are already known to make high quality soft serve, and this takes it a level up.
Here’s a breakdown of its parts: 25% Hokkaido fresh cream is used to that rich deep flavour and full-bodied milk feel; 12.5% high milk fat content for a well-rounded flavour; langue de chat us for the cone; and its form is a silky, wavy shape said to look more graceful.
I have to agree that barring no fast melting, there would be that moment of surprise when you see how different it looks from other ordinary soft serves – pointed tip, wavy form and all.
Mine melted in about a minute, though I was already very fast with photos.
If you like your soft serves tasting pure and unadulterated, Cremia is probably for you.
The texture was velvety-smooth and creamy, almost like tasting milk in another form. (I wished there was some serviettes provided as it kept dripping. Oh, and this is Japan… no serviettes?!)
The best part for me was its cone, made out of wafer-like thin cookies twisted into shape. Not airy, complimented the softserve to a T.
This could be one of the most worthy ¥500 (SGD$6.40, USD$4.60) spent in Japan.
You can find Cremia at the main Silkream store, or various kiosks around.
