PEPERO Ice Bar by LOTTE
Think of chocolate-covered biscuit sticks, and LOTTE PEPERO inevitably springs to mind. Most, if not all, of our childhoods will have involved these South Korean biscuit sticks at some point or another, so it’s safe to say that their latest spin-off as the PEPERO Ice Bar is surely a cause for celebration.
If you didn’t know, the PEPERO snack is older than most of us━LOTTE has been making these chocolate-dipped biscuit sticks since 1983! Today, there are more than 30 variations, including ones coated in strawberry, green tea, cheddar cheese and more.
Others still come with chocolate speckled with crushed chocolate cookies, almonds, and even peanuts━bringing us to the two PEPERO ice cream bars that have just launched here.
Chocolate, vanilla, and nuts are a match made in heaven: the PEPERO Ice Bar is that exact trinity in your choice of Almond, or Peanut.
It isn’t PEPERO if it didn’t feature that recognisable chocolate shell━if you’ve ever felt that there was too little of it on a single PEPERO stick, you might consider your wish granted now.
You get a generous coating of chocolate shell, and lots of chunky nut bits studded in it, providing a pleasant crunch and nutty flavour as you bite into the ice cream stick.
Where the biscuit stick used to be is now a chunky centre of sweet and creamy vanilla ice cream.
You could even pretend you’re eating a chonky version of the OG stick, with a thin band of the vanilla ice cream visible at the bottom of each ice bar, mimicking the plain biscuit stick.
I’d even go so far as to say this is more satisfying━but perhaps messier━to have on a hot afternoon.
Retailing exclusively at major FairPrice outlets, the ice cream bars are sold in Multipacks of six for $11.50. There’s more good news: from 19 May to 25 May 2022, you can get two Multipacks for $19.50!
Otherwise, you can also get them delivered when you order the ice cream bars on FairPrice Online, and stock up ahead of PEPERO Day this November.
