The Bespoke Jet™ also earned recognition as an honouree at the CES Innovation Awards 2021.

“We were thrilled when we announced the expansion of the Samsung Bespoke line with the Bespoke Jet™ at CES 2022 in January,” said Edward Han, President of Samsung Malaysia Electronics. “Cleanliness and good hygiene have never been more imperative and a vacuum cleaner is an essential tool for any household to perform their cleaning routine. The Bespoke Jet™ is a perfect embodiment of the Samsung Bespoke brand and now, Malaysians are able to experience a device that not only is powerful but could also fit seamlessly with the interior design of their homes.”

The Bespoke Jet™ features the all-in-one Clean Station™ that keeps the homeowner’s space hygienic while cleaning.

Merry Ice Cream’s New Nutty Berries Flavour

Merry Ice Cream debuts a new flavour – Nutty Berries which combines the creamy taste of peanuts with the tangy, refreshing elements of strawberries, reminiscent of the comfort food that most of us grew up with – peanut butter and jelly also known as PB&J sandwiches.

In addition to their already wide range of flavours, and the new Nutty Berries, Merry Ice Cream will also bring back two seasonal favourites.

“We want to keep on creating more unique ice cream flavours that are beloved and captivating to Malaysian taste buds. We hope that our Nutty Berries flavour brings back early childhood memories of a much-beloved staple, the PB&J sandwich. After all, dessert isn’t just for after-dinner but a sweet treat to be enjoyed all day and night,” said Stanilaus Choo Wei En, Founder of Merry Ice Cream.

The first is Peppermint Mocha, which combines the aroma of a Malaysian favourite- Ipoh white coffee – that awakens the senses,  with a refreshing minty menthol flavour, and a touch of chocolate. The second flavour – IronLady Tea (Tie Guan Yin) ice cream, brings about a natural tea fragrance extracted from tea leaves imported from An Xi, Fujian in China for the best possible taste.

Beginning as a café in Penang in 2016, Merry Ice Cream has always aimed to cater to diverse Malaysian taste buds with bold flavour combinations. With flagship bestsellers like Gula Melaka and Salted Egg Oreo, Merry Ice Cream’s mission is to create joyful moments for the kid in every Malaysian, taking them back to simpler times when ice cream was the answer to all their problems in life.

“As Malaysians, good food and bold flavours are in our DNA. With that in mind, we are proud to have successfully created more than 30 unique flavours of ice cream, selling nationwide. At Merry Ice Cream, we believe that there is a flavour for everyone, no matter your age or your preference,” added Stanilaus.

Focusing on premium quality ingredients that are 100% natural and imported from Italy and New Zealand, Merry Ice Cream prides itself in making Halal-certified ice cream that is free from preservatives and additives.

Merry Ice Cream sent me a couple of tubs to try and I was quite impressed by the quality of the ice creams which is definitely above most (mass) commercial brands. I was also delighted that they came up with some local and regional flavours like Gula Melaka and Salted Egg instead of sticking to the same old classic ones (which they do have if you’re the unadventurous type). It’s great to see more Malaysian brands dare to challenge the norms.
