A much-needed dessert stop!
Everyone knows how overwhelming and crazy it is to be stuck in an IKEA maze especially during busy weekends. Well, looks like IKEA Thailand has found the key to happiness amidst the chaos – bubble tea and soft serve ice cream!
IKEA Thailand is certainly stepping up their game by releasing these new dessert menu items and we’re kinda bummed we can’t try them out. Bangkok holiday soon?

That’s right, IKEA in Thailand is ahead of the rest of us in the boba train. Priced at only THB45 per cup, you can get extra tapioca pearls for an additional THB10. Apparently, the pearls used in the IKEA iced bubble tea are pretty tiny, so you can slurp it just fine with a regular-sized straw.

The bubble milk tea isn’t the only new food item on the IKEA menu. They have also come out with a Cotton Candy soft serve flavour which costs THB29 each. The soft serve ice cream cone comes in a swirl of yellow and blue – the colours of the Sweden flag and IKEA logo!

Aside from the cotton candy flavour, you can also get their other ice cream flavour combos:
Milky Strawberry (THB60) – strawberry soft serve in a cone topped with biscuit crumbs, fresh strawberry, and cookie crisp
Yogurt Muesli (THB45) – yogurt soft serve in a cone topped with muesli
Butterscotch Choco Crunch (THB85) – soft serve in a chocolate cone topped with almonds, chocolate chips, Daim candy and a sliver of Daim cake
For now, we’re still unsure if the flavours mentioned above are seasonal items or permanent items on the menu.

If you want to get crazier and more customised with your ice-cream, you can do so at the ice cream bar in IKEA Thailand. Choose between M or L size, the soft serve flavour of your choice and your desired toppings. The flavours available are milk, soy, and other seasonal flavours.
There are about 20 toppings available from candies to cookies, biscuits sandwiches, jellies, marshmallows, and the list goes on. Why only build your dream home with IKEA, when you can now also build the soft serve of your dreams!
