Artisanal ice cream and frozen yogurt outlets are everywhere these days, but we all know Singaporeans have a profound love for the ice cream sandwiches sold on the streets. 

Due to the COVID-19 virtual lockdown, the ice cream uncles have not been able to set up their pushcarts in places like Orchard Road. But thanks to social media, a number of them have gone online to sell their blocks of ice cream in popular flavors like raspberry ripple, durian, and sweet corn. Some even sell them with the iconic colorful bread slices or wafer biscuits. 

Here are five of them who are selling their ice cream online, with some also offering delivery services. Just make sure you order in advance.
