Get your sugar rush!
The Museum of Ice Cream is set to launch Singapore’s first ever official guidebook for desserts.
Dessert fiends rejoice! For far too long, the spotlight has only been shone upon Singapore’s savoury dishes like chicken rice, char kway teow, and chilli crab. No more. The Museum of Ice Cream (MOIC) is set to launch Singapore’s first ever official guidebook for desserts as part of Singapore Tourism Board’s SingapoReimagine Marketing Programme (SMP).
Sweet Spots will show that Singapore has so much more to offer by not only showcasing the very best spots for ice cream, but also featuring desserts like chendol, orh Nee, and even ice kacang. Highlighting the best spots for dessert across the island, Sweet Spots will feature everyone’s favourite traditional hawkers, cafés, patisseries, and even fine dining establishments.
Sweet Spots is an initiative brought about by MOIC’s drive to spread and celebrate the universal and borderless joy of sweet treats, to foster everlasting cone-nections between people, and for everyone to embrace their inner child in the enjoyment of delicious desserts.
As of presstime, no further information such as the publishing date of the guidebook, cost and where to get it was provided.
Nominate your favourite dessert spot
Upon the launch of the Sweet Spots site, locals may nominate their favourite dessert spots for consideration at www.sweetspotsguide.com along with their favourite menu items. Once a comprehensive list has been compiled, a group of esteemed judges, selected from different fields across the culinary world, will then travel upon the rocky road of desserts to sample everyone’s favourite sweet treats. With evaluations complete, selected establishments will be ranked in three tiers to receive the coveted SPOONS award, with three SPOONS awards given to 10 establishments, two SPOONS awards given to 15 establishments, and one SPOON award given to 25 establishments at the Sweet Spots Gala Party and Award Ceremony held in September. Selected establishments that receive the prized SPOONS award will then be invited to take over all of the treat stations at Museum of Ice Cream on October 14, 2023 to showcase their delightful delicacies to the public.
To further incentivise nominations, 50 pairs of tickets to the Museum of Ice Cream will be given to lucky winners to have them join in the festivities and try the scrumptious creations of SPOONS awardees on National Desserts Day.
Nominations will end by May 10, 2023, with everyone invited to nominate and vote for desserts close to their heart.
