A Benefit Tuesday Night programme is also being launched, exclusively in the flagship scoop store. It will run on a Tuesday every month, allowing various local welfare organisations to engage the public on their causes. 20% of Ben & Jerry's sales during the 7pm-9pm event will also be donated to the featured mission partners.
And this is not all! On this opening night, the international renowned food artist, Samantha Lee from Malaysia, is also here to share her scooptacular Sundae creation.
We had a chance to create our own versions of Sundae. Through this simple activity, I realised for food art, from conceptualizing to putting the ideas into action, isn't as simple as we thought.
Here's our take! Are you able to guess what's the design? Leave a comment and share your thoughts, thanks!
The Peace, Love, Commoonity Sundae (SGD $17.90) specially designed by Samantha Lee, is available exclusively to the Flagship Scoop Shop until 31 August 2015. All profits go to Ben & Jerry's Benefit Tuesday Night partners, therfore, start scooping and share some love!
BTW, if you would like to catch a glimpse of Samantha Lee, tomorrow (8 Apr 2015), Samantha will be serving the Peace, Love, Commoonity Sundae at the 313 Somerset Flagship store from 11:30am to 12:30pm, with all profits to Ben's Jerry social mission partners. Head down and support for a good cause!
