Hello Kitty 45th anniversary @ Crème De La Crème, Damansara Uptown
Ice cream has always been the sinful choice of many human beings since its wonderful creation probably 2500 years ago. It will bring a smile to your frown face after a bad day at work or a bonus ending to a wonderful meal.
So, you got the hint here that ice cream will brings joy.
Imagine the broad smile on a simple foodie like me if you marry artisan ice cream with the world cutest kitty (psst.. she’s older than me but way way way cuter). The 40 over years of Hello Kitty never wane and the below photos illustrate it well.
I went back to Crème De La Crème at Damansara Uptown a couple of weeks ago to try out their latest pretty creations which is a collaboration with Sanrio in conjunction of Hello Kitty’s 45th birthday celebration.
Specially handpicked by Sanrio to celebrate the 45th birthday of the iconic Hello
Kitty for her Malaysian fans and friends, CDLC has transformed into a Hello Kitty Land with the Instagrammable murals and various of props to let the fans capture their magical moment.
Apart from the sensory treat for the eyes and Instagram feeds, CDLC has upped the ante at what they do best and crafted a tantalising set of Hello Kitty themed ice-cream, petits gâteaux, and “Bloop! Bloop! Bloop!” (CDLC-famed beverages) befitting of the greatest anniversary bash to be thrown for the ultra-lovable icon.
Friendship Ring (RM25.00)
Celebrating Hello Kitty’s favourite word “friendship”! Underneath the chocolate and strawberry coating, the lip-smacking combination of cream-cheese ice cream, strawberry ice cream, strawberry jam, peach sorbet and citrus crumble had me singing at pleasure with every bite. I adored the tangy berries note which really tickled my taste bud.
Kitty White (RM25.00)
Fondly named after Hello Kitty herself, and molded into the cutest ever face of herself, we really reluctant to destroy this achingly pretty creation. It’s an indulgent combination of white chocolate crust filled with Madagascar vanilla ice cream, strawberry passion fruit sorbet, passion fruit crème and crumble. The filling was so refreshing to the palate, love it!
Named after Hello Kitty’s pet hamster, this is one of the special concoction whipped up by the team for this special collaboration. Made from of fresh strawberries, fresh
sweet basil leaves, freshly squeezed lemonade and raspberry sorbet (in cute Hello Kitty and her iconic bow shape). It was refreshingly sour with subtle hint of basil, a combination that works well enough to leave a positive impression.
Another special drink is Charmmy Kitty (RM18.00) which is named after Hello Kitty’s pet cat. It’s a delightful serving of fresh milk blended with strawberries, topped with strawberry ice cream and peach chunks.
Other than the special drinks and petits gâteaux, the collaboration also showcasing two new created Hello Kitty themed ice-cream, namely Apple Pie Crumble and Strawberry Fantasy.
If you’re an ultimate strawberry fan, this is the ice cream that you shouldn’t miss! The intense flavoured strawberry ice cream with homemade strawberry jam and fresh strawberry bits will definitely provide you a sense of sublime satisfaction when enjoying this.
Apple Pie Crumble
Interpreting Hello Kitty’s favourite dessert ~ apple pie, the ice cream is made from Madagascar vanilla goodness swirled with homemade fresh apple compote, cinnamon and crumble. I like it not cloyingly sweet but efficiently offered that distinctive sweetness and flavour of an apple pie.
Special crafted menu featuring Hello Kitty x Crème De La Crème is only available from 15 November to 31 December 2019.
