Los Angeles's Little Damage is coming to Singapore bearing charcoal soft serves at Wheelock Place
Emo’s not dead
Oh ice cream. Typically, a sugary dessert of frozen cow's milk served at sub-zero temperatures, otherwise known to many as the silver lining to any bad day. Now, of course, the other alternative to accompany a dour mood is blasting punk rock in your bedroom, but it's 2019 – even if you're not battling any demons, there are other delicious ways to embrace your inner goth. Little Damage provides a stellar option; their charcoal soft-serves come in matching black cones, so you can really commit to the lifestyle and feed the darkness of your soul – we mean, mood.
Based off the goth-inspired concept borne out of Jenny Damage's personal love of black and ice cream, Little Damage became a cult favourite among the people of Los Angeles in no time – and we expect no different from the crowds of Singapore now that they're here. Offering four flavours of soft-serve that rotate monthly (because we all love a little mystery in our lives), the signature black is accompanied by other colours of soft-serve to add a pop to the monochrome, and the theme is tied together by their hand-rolled activated charcoal waffle cones. August sees the flavours coffee caramel, Unicorn Tears, white chocolate, and chocolate and peanut butter banana (the last of which is the vegan option). A word of warning, though: their range of toppings, which includes rainbow sprinkles and crunchy chocolate pearls, may leave you with that conundrum of send-help-I-want-everything.
Whether it's the classic soft-serve made daily with fresh milk or the vegan one substituted with rich soy or nut milk substitutes, every cone embodies "cute but psycho...but cute" – a catchphrase of the brand. Black matches everything, after all; and with the in-store photobooth and catchy neon signs contributing to a #bigmood, your visit to Little Damage will be both a mid-day dessert treat and a nifty photoshoot for the 'Gram.
