Yogurt is such a hit nowadays here in Manila since most Pinoys are already conscious of healthy living. Well for me and my wife Tina, we just like to enjoy it so we’ve tried two of the many available brands here (RED MANGO and YOH-GURT-FROZ) and we can’t help but to compare it with ice cream.
Considering its nutritional value with lesser calories and fats and its taste ofcourse, usually served with fresh fruits and/or nuts, we certainly like yogurt. But I can’t imagine a world without ICE CREAM! It’s one of my comfort food. There’s always that kid-in-me who craves for ice cream every now and then. Who cares if it’s summer or rainy days? Ice cream for me is always in season. Although I already avoided eating dirty ice cream (sold by street vendors) after watching a TV documentary on how it’s prepared and done, I settled for the commercially available sorbetes.
I also like ice cream cakes. I grew up having few of my birthday cakes were ice cream cakes bought by my parents from Magnolia Ice Cream House in Aurora Blvd in Quezon City. Just a few months ago, we tried FIVE COWS in TriNoma that serves frozen desserts such as ice cream and ice cream cakes. We also liked it. View my previous post about it –>HERE
The last time we’re in Greenbelt 3 in Makati, we tried GELATONE, a small restaurant that serves GELATO, or Italian ice cream. Gelatone has so many flavors and variety of gelato dishes to choose from. I just failed to bring a cam that time. So what makes gelato different from ice cream? I heard it’s the lack of air - gelato has less air, or none at all, compared to ice cream.
Yogurt, gelato, or ice cream, I like them all and can’t have one over the other. All of them are delectable!
Yesterday, I and my son Gabby walked to the far end of our street where a convenience store is (what else but 711) to buy what else but ice cream. I was sure of what to buy.
Since we’ve tasted all of the 3 flavors already (Hazelnut Brownie, Chocolate Truffles and Berry Strawbery), we have singled out our favorite. All of those 3 Selecta Gold ice cream flavors are decadent, but we like Berry Strawberry so much. Perhaps we had so much of chocolates (we usually got tons lots of them sent by my in laws from the US and it takes us few months to consume them all unless we give some to our siblings, nieces and nephews which we do actually) that we deviated our preference to something fruity and creamier….
With generous amounts of strawberries and richness of its cream, I’d say it’s just perfect for my palate, for the lack of a better word to describe it. We finished the tub in two seating.
So what’s your favorite flavor of ice cream?
I have to stop blogging this, I’m craving for another scoop.
Now, please excuse me, I need to indulge….
