SINGAPORE - Rojak can now be added to the long list of novel ice cream flavours.
A team from Serangoon Gardens Secondary School has emerged top in the Nanyang Polytechnic (NYP)-Swensens Ice Cream Competition on Saturday for their "Rojak Lah" creation.
The competition is jointly organised annually by NYP's School of Chemical and Life Sciences and Swensen's Singapore. It challenges students to use innovative ingredients and interesting flavours to represent this year's theme of 'Truly Singapore'.
The competition also aims to give secondary school students the opportunity to learn about food science through exciting hands-on experiences in making ice-cream.
With their rojak-flavoured creation, the winning team, who called themselves "The V Flyers", walked away with $200 Swensen's vouchers.
There were 10 teams from various secondary schools around Singapore that took part in the competition.
Other ice cream creations that other teams came up with include flavours like roti teh tarik and kaya, laksa, and soy milk and grass jelly.
