The good folk behind The Ice Cream & Cookie Company — the Singapore-based boutique confectioner of creamy concoctions for connoisseurs (say that 10 times fast) — definitely know a thing or two about irresistible pairings; just take a bite into one of their signature ice cream sandwiches. Our personal favourite? Milk & Cookies, a decadent combination of vanilla bean ice cream and 74% chocolate chip cookies.
To further sweeten the deal, The Ice Cream & Cookie Company have partnered with 50 for 50 to become one of the 50 independent projects to raise funds for Singapore charities in celebration of SG50. I know, there's a whole bunch of 50s in there, but what you need to know is this: For every ice cream sandwich purchased, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Guide Dogs Association of the Blind. These proceeds will then be matched dollar-for-dollar by corporates working with 50 for 50, which will then be matched again, dollar-for-dollar, under the government-led CARE-AND-SHARE movement. This results in a four-fold multiplication of the initial amount raised by The Ice Cream & Cookie Company.
In summary, everyone is a winner. We get to chow down on delicious ice cream sandwiches, and the Guide Dogs Association gets much needed funding to help vision-impaired people lead more independent lives. Now that's a #SundayFunday.
Ice Cream & Cookie Company is currently taking part in the Orchard Central Dessert Fair which runs every weekend till Sunday 9 August. Visit them on the ground floor atrium from 12 to 6pm.
