Early birds like us caught a taste of Chinese New Year fever at Sangkaya amidst the whirl of Yuletide festivities recently. The homegrown brand, famed for its signature Coconut Ice Cream, launched two NEW products - Opulence Bowl and Fortune Shake for the coming Year of the Rooster in 2017.
The evening took on a decidedly CNY feel when thunderous beats of drums and clashing cymbals roused a pair of prancing lions to conquer the Sangkaya premise.
From 15 December 2016 to 28 February 2017, Sangkaya will entice ice cream and dessert lovers with their Opulence Bowl creations: Orange Tang (left) and Pineapple Zest (right). Each of the delightful treat is priced at RM8.40.
Behold the Orange Tang in which orange infused Sangkaya Signature Coconut Ice Cream comes prettily presented in a floral waffle cup, with a wedge of fresh lime and dried orange peel dices. A dash of freshly squeezed lime juice gave the ice cream a nice zesty tang and stirred up the appetite for this enticing treat. A fortune cookie lent it a fortuitous CNY touch.
The Pineapple Zest fought for our attention too with equal fervour. Here, pineapple infused coconut ice cream came topped with fresh chunks of pineapple, served in a floral waffle bowl together with a crunchy fortune cookie. We found the pineapple nuance subtler but just as pleasing.
You can even pack these two new Sangkaya ice cream flavours home with the specially designed Sangkaya cooler bag. Limited edition angpow packets will also be given away with any two purchase of the new products. Do check with the friendly Sangkaya team for more information.
Based on past weather patterns, the CNY period tends to be hot so nothing beats a cooling drink like Sangkaya's Fortune Shake. We recommend Orange Sunrise (RM7.40) - a splendid thirst-quencher of orange ice cream shake infused with coconut water and dried orange peel. One sip and you'd be slurping the drink down!
Alternatively, there's the captivating appeal of Pineapple Breeze (RM7.40) - an irresistibly chilled drink of pineapple ice cream shaken and stirred with coconut water and pineapple chunks. Now, this thirst-quencher is worth raving about too.
In case you're wondering if Sangkaya has all but forgotten about Christmas, the festive spirit can be found in the Christmas Glee creation. Pairing a crimson red velvet cupcake swirled with cream cheese frosting, it is crowned with a scoop of luscious Sangkaya Coconut Ice Cream, toasted grated coconut and a pretzel. Yummilicious!
