- Those Instagram likes
- Relatively icy texture
- More miss flavours than hit flavours
- The hype
- If you must, Sea Salt and/or Tofu
TL;DR – Extremely photogenic soft serves that Instagram better than they taste. Completely overhyped.
Sea Salt Soft Serve with Fairy Floss Cloud, Caramel Popcorn & Toasted Marshmallow – $8 (3.5/10)
Let’s get things straight.
Contrary to what Instagram and many foodies would have you believe, Aqua S is not the most amazing thing in the world. In fact, it’s not even the best soft serve in Sydney.
What it is though is extremely photogenic soft serves, with creative but artificial tasting hit and miss flavours, and a somewhat icy texture.
So is Aqua S worth the hype? Absolutely not. But it may be worth trying for that sweet sweet Instagram karma. True posers can even add a fairy floss cloud to show that you are willing to brave hopeless impracticality for the sake of a better photo.
Me? I’ll patiently wait for Via Tokyo come to Sydney.
So fellow foodies, what’s your favourite soft serve in Sydney?
