IKEA Bangna In Bangkok Has Cotton Candy & Butterscotch Soft Serve For Just S$1.24 Per Cone
When IKEA outlets low-key converted all their vanilla soft-serve to a vegan-appropriate soy-milk based variant, Singaporeans were pretty mixed about the decision.
Since everything happens for a reason, we think this could be a pre-cursor to vegan-friendly flavours in the near future.
At least, that seems to be the direction of where IKEA Bangkok is heading — crazy millennial ice cream flavours in every colour of the rainbow imaginable.
Oh yes, they have BBT too. Brb, booking our one-way flight there now.
Butterscotch & Cotton Candy soft serve
From the looks of pictures flooding social media, IKEA Bangna outlet in Bangkok – located halfway between the airport and the city centre – is home to a brand new ice cream parlour.
The most iconic flavour Butterscotch & Cotton Candy is an aptly coloured yellow and blue swirl sitting pretty upon a cone, with an adorable little IKEA flag.
Locals share that it only costs S$1.24 (29 Baht) per cone. You’ll also get to select from an assortment of toppings if you so desire, from fresh fruits to crispy biscuits.
Think Llaollao, but for a fraction of the price. A vegan strawberry flavour is drawing the lines too.
BBT and iced cappuccinos
SHOUT.sg reports that a cup of bubble tea goes at just S$1.92 (45 baht).
The pictures also do tease at a full blown IKEA cafe with a functioning espresso machine, since Iced Cappuccinos are also on the menu for S$2.13 (50 baht).
See the full drinks menu here.
Cheese fries bouquet
We also spotted a sinful looking cheese fries bouquet, generously topped with scallions.
No word on the price for this yet, but here’s the link to their full menu for a good estimate on the range. Regular fries costs only S$1.28 (30 baht), so we’d expect just a slight top-up to afford a heaping dollop of drizzled cheese.
How to get there
IKEA Bangna is within a 30-min taxi ride from Suvarnabhumi International Airport.

- Big C Supermarket
