Drawing from the idea of "Xian Cao" being "black" in colour and taro "balls", came the birth of BlackBall, a dessert connoiseur that has its roots in Taiwan.
The desert restaurant company was founded and created by Mr. Tang, who is an experienced tour guide, when he came across "Xian Cao" by chance upon travelling to Guan Xi. He was thrilled and excited by what he had encountered, as not only did his new discovery taste great, but it also provided various health benefits. It was from this experience that his dream was born.
This dream finally came true for him after setting up the BlackBall Company in Taipei, introducing the amazing characteristics of "Xian Cao". The ingredient has now become a key inclusion in most traditional desserts accross Taiwan. Having started the BlackBall company back in 2006 it has now bloomed and stands as one of the biggest dessert chains in Taipei with over 20 outlets plus a further 10 outlets in Malaysia.

One philosophy that -18C (read as minus 18 degrees) stands by is to merge palette-teasing frozen yogurt that is made of the finest ingredients together with an assortment of toppings to bring brand new excitements to their customers.
With that, -18C is going to take this experience like no other to a whole new level by targeting to the young audience and to the increasingly health conscious population in Singapore, where studies have shown that yogurt helps improve digestive health and a stronger immune system.
Dedicated to the vision, customers can be treated to unique concocted flavours as well as classic favorites; all at a reasonable price.
Quality and freshness is guaranteed with -18C as the ingredients will be the finest selected from Europe and Australia. With that it also promises that 100% natural ingredients will be used (No Gluten, No Artificial Sweeteners, No Artificial Flavouring, No Preservatives).
The process of freezing the yogurt does not kill off any significant amount of the cultures packed, so instead it goes into a dormant state. And when it is consumed (warm temperature within the body), these cultures then become active again to provide the consumer with all of the well-known health benefits.
The extensive menu will include more that 20 unique flavours together with classic favourites. In addition, over 20 toppings will be available for customers, of which, 80% of them will be daily-cut fresh fruits, not forgetting other assortments such as chocolates and nuts. Spin off products will include freshly squeezed fruit juices and yogurt drinks. This is to provide an alternative to customers who may not be too receptive to frozen yogurt.
This concept will identity itself with the 13-25 target audience age group, where they will most likely drawn to the branding of this shop that revolves around healthy living and pure unrefined pleasure. The interiors will be furnished with a modern and yet cozy décor. Counter servers with a friendly and bubbly charisma will be chosen, as it will liven up the atmosphere for customers.
-18C aims to make itself the healthy escapade, where entertainment can be healthy at an affordable price.
