Two weekends ago, we were invited to Swensen's on a early Sunday morning, for a great start to our day! Seriously before this, I didn't know that Swensons serve breakfast too. Do you know? The breakfast menu is available on weekends and Public Holidays from 8am to 11am, and is available at all Swensen's outlets except Bukit Panjang Plaza, City Square Mall, ION and Plaza Singapura outlets.

Psst! In addition to the awesome and new breakfast menu, we were even more ecstatic to learn that Swensen's has already launched their much-anticipated SG50 Moon Gems ice-cream mooncakes!!

We were told it can last for around 2 hours so our ice cream will get home safely! ;p
That's not all! The icecream mooncakes are packed with dry ice (that can lasts for 2 hours outside) and placed into a exquisite packing, which is actually a lantern box that comes with LED lights! It is a great hit with my children!
|Doesn't this packaging looks so cool? It can actually be converted into a lantern or for display!|
