Take A Time Out At The Naughty Corner

Pei Xia Ang

Quirkily named after childrens’ punishment area, The Naughty Corner is a place for both young and old to take a break and cool off with some gelato.

The Naughty Corner is located in the neighborhood area of Hougang, and their flavors cater to both the young and the young at heart.

Flavours

From sweet to sour, salty to bitter, they have you covered. Some of the crowd favourites include Cocoa (a mixture of bittersweet), Root Beer Float (a creamy delight for the kids), Tim Tam Slam (a nostalgic blast to the past), and Limetta Cheesecake (a mixture of sweet and sour).

For my double scoop gelato, I went with the popular Mango Sorbet and Strawberry fusion, and was pleasantly surprised at how well the flavors complemented each other. Each scoop of mango felt like a bite off the juicy tropical fruit. In contrast, the strawberry was more mellow in flavor. The berry taste was not too artificially overbearing, and it reminded me of the strawberry ice creams I had during my childhood.

Other Offerings

In addition to gelato, The Naughty Corner recently launched the Stuffed Bubblewrap.  Almost like egglets, the ones here are stuffed with flavors like Chocolate, Reese’s Peanut Butter, and Sea Salt Caramel.

For someone too fickle to choose, I went for all 3 flavors. This means that each individual egglet is randomly filled with either of the 3 flavors. From the salty caramel to the sweet chocolate, each bite carried a fresh surprise.

In Conclusion

Sweet or sour, naughty or nice, there is always something for you at The Naughty Corner. The gelato are made in-house, and the flavors change on a rotational basis. This is where one can experience surprises at every corner!

Does Yole Taste the Same as llaollao?

James Chan

Sayonara llaollao!

Froyo dessert giants, llaollao, ceased all operations this morning and made way for another European froyo brand called Yole (It’s pronounced yo-lay).

My heart can’t take this stress. First it was Gong Cha, now llaollao. It seems like just yesterday when I was walking past a llaollao outlet at Plaza Singapura and resisted the urge to get myself a small cup of goodness (wait, it really was just yesterday!). Alas, I won’t be able to have a mental battle with their brand anymore.

The question that begs to be answered is this: “Can Yole live up to the tremendous pressure and expectations?” We had to check them out to be sure.

Tubs

Prices range from $4.90 (for a small cup of froyo with one topping) to $6.90 (for a large cup with three toppings). Sounds vaguely familiar no? Oh, and that blue spoon is very reminiscent of its predecessor even if I do say so myself. They ran out of the original flavored froyo so I was left with the Strawberry froyo.

Tasting Notes

For a small cup, you get to choose one topping and I opted for pumpkin seeds to give the froyo a little added texture. I must say the Straberry Froyo is a little on the sweeter spectrum but nevertheless I felt the seeds gave it a well-needed bitterness. I can’t imagine pairing it with even sweeter toppings…. which brings us to the next thing I ordered.

IBIZA

I have the feeling it’s called Ibiza to link their parfaits to paradise. You have two options to choose from. A mini, $5.50 or a large, $6.95. I ordered the large.

Tasting Notes

The toppings I chose were Kiwi, Strawberry (I have no idea why i chose strawberry for a strawberry froyo), granola chips and an extremely generous amount of mango sauce. There’s one word that could truthfully describe how it tasted, diabetic. It was so sweet. OMG! I couldn’t even finish it and maybe my hands were really warm or something but within less than 7 minutes, the froyo lost all its structural integrity to become this (refer to image below)

To be fair, I have yet to try their Original Froyo and I’m not one who possesses a sweet tooth. If you are, Yole is the place for you my friend. I recommend starting with the Tubs and progress to the Ibiza when you’ve leveled up.

If you want to beat the queue, try going during office hours. It’s a whole lot faster!
