Here are some swell solutions for the sweltering weather.

Get your chilly fix at Density Frozen Custard–the first-ever store serving the U.S.A. dessert here. Enjoy its velvety texture but rest assured–it’s lower in calories and sugar. From $4/scoop. 4 Short St. Tel: 6268 7918


Reap the health benefits of Frutee’s Premium Cranberry Juice Cocktail. Each compact 975ml bottle is 27 percent cranberry juice and Halal-certified. $3.95 from all major supermarkets.


All hail JWEL‘s latest gems: The Baroness of Chocolate Orange, The Marquis of Peanut Butter, and Her Highness of Honey ($2.70-$2.95/stick, $10.90 for multipack of six). We dig the crunchy almond flecks in the chocolate coating, the luscious dairy, and the fleur-de-lis motifs on each wrapper.


Choc lovers, bite into the new Magnum Infinity, which contains double the cocoa intensity of a Magnum Classic. The secret? A rare source of naturally-rich beans from Tanzania that’s said to be pleasure enhancing. The proof’s in Chocolate Mini ($10.90/box of six)–dark throughout with cocoa nibs. A sweeter one would be Classic-sized chocolate and caramel ($3.90/stick), less
dark but equally fragrant.
