Waka Waka Gelato In KL Creates Actual Haw Flakes Ice Cream After White Rabbit Candy Craze

You may recall peeling open the wrappers of a tiny stack of haw flakes as a kid, or digging into an ice-cold cup of gelato on a swelteringly humid day.

Now you can do both thanks to Waka Waka Gelato’s efforts in creating a nostalgic flavour that will speak to most 90s kids — legit Haw Flake ice cream.

The flavour will be around for 2 weeks, starting Monday (18 Mar). Waka Waka Gelato also teased other “childhood flavours” to come, in a cryptic Facebook post.

Tastes like haw flakes, says Malaysians

If you almost dropped your phone in excitement while reading this, here are more deets about the gelato flavour that will get you salivating.

Haw Haw Tatayo is the official name and the base flavour is vanilla gelato. Crumbled candied haw flakes are spread evenly throughout each scoop.

Add to that a special sauce created by distilling and concentrating haw flake candy into a thick gooey caramelised syrup that will be lovingly drizzled over your serving.

SAYS Makan’s independent review of the flavour was that it really tastes legitimate, which is more than we can ask for since we’re close to eating the pictures now.

Prices:

Mini Scoop – S$1.99 (6 RM)
Single Scoop – S$2.99 (9 RM)
Double Scoop – S$4.98 (15 RM)

At these price points, we think getting a small cup for a taste test is definitely worth a shot.

Worthy successor to White Rabbit gelato

After the White Rabbit candy craze swept most of the gelato scene in US and Canada, spawning fresh spin-offs like secret Starbucks frappuccino recipes, we will welcome haw flakes to the gelato world with open arms.

Waka Waka Gelato also brought an authentic version of White Rabbit ice cream – complete with edible rice paper – to KL earlier this month, as pictured above.
