It’s been getting extremely hot in Singapore lately, and many of us have been struggling to find ways to escape the heat.

Air-conditioning? Not enough.

An iced drink? Not enough.

Ice cream? Hell yeah.

I scream, you scream, no one gets ice cream.

On 30 April 2019, a food blogger by the name Eden Lin X posted this on his Instagram. And it has the internet shook.

The banana really is peelable, and lest you’re wondering, the banana “skin” is actually made from jelly. So not only can you have fun peeling it, you can eat it after that.

The best thing about this is the fact that it contains no artificial-coloring. It is also low in fat and sugar, so it’s considered quite healthy.

It’s worth going bananas for.

Not Available Here

If you’re curious to know how this tastes like, this isn’t available in Singapore. Unfortunately for us, it’s only available in Taiwan and Malaysia.

In Taiwan, this banana ice cream sold by Nestle is sold in a pack of eight. They can be found at 7-Eleven and costs NT$199. In Singapore dollars, that’s $8.81.

Which means that one stick of ice cream would cost $1.10.

There are rumours that they could be found in Malaysia, but that’s not confirmed.

Whacky Ice Cream Flavours

Recently, there has been a wave of whacky flavours. Here are some of them which you can find around the world.

If you thought that the bubble tea craze would die down, you’re wrong. From bubble tea hotpots, tarts, ice-cream, the world sure is getting more innovative with their bubble tea creations.

They were released in March of this year in Japan, and it contains black tea ice-cream, milk sauce, and tapioca style mochi. Each bar is sold for S$1.82, which is actually quite affordable.

Now, the only question remains is this: if the banana ice-cream bar gets viral here in Singapore, which company would bring it over to Singapore?

7-Eleven, you reading this?
