Who would have thought sweet potato and ikan bilis would taste good together as ice cream?

Three students from NUS High School of Mathematics and Science did and apparently so did the judges of a contest to create an ice cream with the best contrasting flavours.

NUS High’s Belle Sow and her friends beat nine other school teams on Saturday to win this year’s Ice Cream Innovation Competition organised by Nanyang Polytechnic (NYP) and Swensen’s.

Other entries included Assumption Pathway School’s “Warm Harmony”, a sweet and spicy mix of ginger and sesame, Bedok South Secondary’s wasabi with caramel ice cream and New Town Secondary’s “Cheesy ala Thai”, a salty-sour-spicy combination of cream cheese, mandarin orange and candied ginger. — The Straits Times/ Asia News Network
