Trends come and go, but the unicorn mania is still going strong. Bringing these magical creatures to life in the most delicious way yet, Wall’s has unleashed their latest unicorn-themed Cornettos – and it looks straight out of a fairytale!

Housed in a gorgeous pink cone, the pastel-hued treat comes topped with strawberry jam and multi-coloured chocolate balls – all wrapped in a holographic packaging with a sparkly rainbow unicorn on the front. Oh, and it tastes like dreams, marshmallows and cotton candy – kinda like a paddle pop ice cream.

Have you seen our new arrival in Thailand: #UniCornetto #unicornicecream #unicorn #ยูนิคอร์นเนตโต

A post shared by Cornetto (@cornetto) on

Previously only available in Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia, the clever-named Unicornetto has now made its way to Singapore – but bear in mind that these bad boys can play a lil’ hard to get. For now, it’s only stocked at selected 7-Eleven stores islandwide, so be sure to pop by your neighbourhood outlet to hunt ’em down!

And in case you were wondering, no unicorns were harmed during the production of these mystical treats.

What’s a trip to Taiwan without visiting the largest and most famous night market in town? But here’s the good news: local foodies don’t have to fly all the way there for a taste of Taiwanese eats, as the iconic Shilin Night Market (士林夜市) will be opening its first concept pop-up market in Singapore this April!

Brought to you by the good people behind Artbox, Singapore’s version of Shilin Night Market will be taking on its romanised form of Shilin Ye Shi and will be held at the Singapore Turf Club across two weekends. But before you get overly excited about the event, one thing to note is that you probably won’t be getting the entirety of the real deal.

Shilin Night Market in Taipei City

In a Facebook post by event planner Invade, it’s said that one can expect a variety of authentic street snacks with a local twist, so there will most likely be a good mix of homegrown crafters alongside Taiwanese vendors. Although there’s no word on the exact F&B list yet, we’re crossing our fingers for at least some good ol’ fried chicken cutlet, oyster mee sua, stinky tofu and of course, everyone’s favourite bubble tea to satisfy our cravings.

Besides the grub, there will also be artisan stores, arcade games and even movie screenings to keep you occupied throughout the whole shindig.

Can our very own Shilin Ye Shi live up to the hype? We’ll just have to wait and find out.

Shilin Ye Shi Singapore runs from 19 to 21 April and 26 to 28 April 2019 (3pm to 11pm) at The Grounds @ Kranji, Singapore Turf Club.
