... a savoury, sour, and spicy flavoured Asam Laksa popsicle! :D

Yapp Khin Enn, together with her brother, Yapp Shin Enn, and their friend Jude Limus are the founders behind Pops and Pints, an up-and-coming ice cream company that was launched in August last year.

Based in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, the trio make these bizarre ice cream creations at home and deliver them to various cafes and events throughout the city

"Desserts don't always have to be sweet, so that was how we kinda got started with experimenting with the Asam Laksa flavour," they told SAYS.

If you're wondering, yes, those are real chillis in the popsicle!

It all started when Khin Enn, who was previously studying in Australia, began experimenting by cooking different food. 

"There were so many things I wanted to eat but it was too expensive to eat out, so I started experimenting and making my own food.

"Then when I got back to Malaysia, the weather was so hot that I couldn't stand it, so I tried turning all those ideas into cold food," she told NSTP.

Drawing inspiration from Malaysian food and ingredients, Pops and Pints make a variety of quirky popsicle flavours, like this one made of goji berries

Some of their other flavours are kimchi, smoked beef brisket, and Wasabae, which is a mix of avocado and a hint of wasabi

Popsicle prices range from RM5-RM8, while their pints sell for RM18-RM28.

They currently take orders online and sell the ice creams at various cafes, although they hope to open their own store soon.
