SALTED CARAMEL Artisan Ice Cream at Upper Thomson

It is ice cream again. And at midnight. I can hear the trainer say “Those calories are going to bed with you!” They have slept with me for a long long time already.

Anyway, this time it’s Salted Caramel… the shop and the flavor.

I really love.. yes LOVE… the Salted Caramel flavor here. Guess they chose the right flavor to name their shop. To accompany my salty friend, I chose a scoop of Peanut Butter. Both were creamy, rich, flavorful, and taken together – as in a teaspoon filled with half Salted Caramel and half Peanut Butter – it was heavenly. That will be my combination from today onwards! My friend had the Earl Grey. It had the same creaminess and the taste was superb. I’m so glad I live 10 minutes (drive) away.

The decor is clean, neat and somewhat chic, and they had some cute posters on the wall.

The competition just heated up a few notches because home-grown home-made ice cream brand Udders just opened BESIDE Salted Caramel.

Salted Caramel vs Udders at Upper Thomson

The disappointing thing is… the staff in Salted Caramel were not smiling and a little unfriendly, and the tables were not cleared with dirty plates and cups lying around. In contrast, when I walked into Udders, the place was full of smiling cheerful happy staff, who seemed to be sincere about serving you. Udders was a lot more crowded than Salted Caramel but that could be because Udders just opened a few days ago.

I’m not a fan of Udders, having tried their ice cream a few times. It’s okay, but not great. For me, in terms of flavor, texture and the “after-taste”, Salted Caramel wins hands-down. After a scoop of Udders, I don’t crave for more. After a scoop of Salted Caramel, I want to buy a tub home. Sadly, if the service at Salted Caramel continues to be how it was tonight, then I think the clear winner will be the cow’s breasts!
