There are many things we wish to see back in our lives: McDonald’s Sausage McGriddles, A & W, Wendy’s & Steven Lim are just a few of the necessities we desperately need and deserve.
But none, none, triggers our childhood quite like Mr Softee’s Chendol Soft-serve ice-cream. Now that shit was totally dope.
Just look at it. JUST LOOK AT IT. GEEZ.
Unfortunately, like local actor Xie Shao Guang, it kinda disappeared on us long ago (in 2000) and never seemed to be coming back.
Or at least that’s what we thought until this appeared in front of our eyes.
Mr Softee’s back, and it’s bigger and better
That’s right, you’re not seeing wrong; Mr Softee is back for another adventure in our tummies.
First launched in 7-Eleven stores in the early 1980s, this popular soft-serve dessert was a hot favourite among Mr Softee fans for almost two decades before it was discontinued in 2000.
But it seems that this year’s the year, as customers can take a walk down memory lane when they purchase a helping of this classic soft serve.
Made with the same recipe that was served in the early 1980s to 2000, each cup comes at only $1.50, a steal for such exhilarating soft-serve.
But it seems that the soft-serve isn’t the only nostalgia thing here, as Mr Softee has really gone all out to ensure a truly nostalgia experience.
Introducing the soft-serve machine, a gadget that was designed with all the retro feels in mind.
Taking on the design and colours of the 80s popular arcade game Space Invaders, the machine will even emanate a tune remniscent of the old-school video game with every push of the ‘Start’ button. Way to make our childhood complete, Mr Softee.
Mr Softee Chendol is currently available at 10 7-Eleven locations island-wide, and it will progressively extend to 37 stores by September 2018.
Listed below are the 10 7-Eleven stores that have been blessed with this holy food grail:

So what are you waiting for?
Mr Softee’s Chendol soft-serve will be available for a limited time only, while stocks last. And seeing how it was such a fan-favourite, I really don’t see it lasting very long.
As such, if you’re truly a Mr Softee fan, I would advise that you head down to your nearest outlet (with Mr Softee).
Because we’ve no idea when it will ride off into the sunset, breaking out hearts yet again.
