Aqua S Is Opening Its First Auckland Ice Cream Parlour
An ice creamery with its head in the clouds.
May 29, 2018
Sweet tooths looking for the ultimate Instagrammable treat should look no further, brand new CBD ice cream parlour Aqua S is bringing your candy-fuelled search to an end. On the cusp of opening on Queen Street, this isn't your average soft-serve specialist.
Aqua S has been cranking out $8 soft serve cones for Sydneysiders since January 2015 — and we know, that's a price point that may steer any punter right back to Micky D's. But hold up a second, this little ol' dessert escapade comes filled with sea salt-flavoured soft serve, topped with a pillowy bed of fairy floss, sweet popcorn, popping candy and a grilled marshmallow. And looks like an actual cloud. Take our money.
Sea salt soft-serve is obviously not a new thing — you can thank Okinawa, Japan for it. If you're not down for sea salt soft-serve, you can choose from several others on tap — changing every two weeks. Who knows, you could be inhaling biscotti soft-serve, lemon squash, earl grey milk tea, mint tea, rose lychee, elderflower, lemon cheesecake — anything. Keep things simple with a single soft-serve 'scoop', or blend up those flavours with mixed 'scoops' — and you can pick and choose from those ridiculous sounding toppings.
Find Aqua S at 287 Queen Street, Auckland CBD. It opens this May.
