Wafer ice cream is a type of ice cream popular in Singapore, often known as potong (cut) ice cream, which consists of two wafers holding together a block of ice cream. Common flavours offered include ripple, red bean, yam, sweet corn, durian, honeydew, peppermint, chocolate, and chocolate chip. Wafer ice cream vendors also sell the same blocks of ice cream on slices of multicolored bread, on cones or in cups instead of sandwiched between wafers.

The ice cream block is essentially a huge log of ice cream, which is then cut (hence the name potong) and sandwiched between two wafers. It is interesting to note the differences between countries: Singaporean street vendors do not offer individually wrapped ice cream sandwiches like Australia does.
