WARNING : You may exhibit SIALORRHEA (excessive drooling) LOL.
I know we observed gluttony ate too much good food last Sunday. From Cerealicious that started our day, to Pepper Lunch steaks as our mid day meals and as if we have bottomless gastric pits, we had rooms for these heavenly yummies as our late afternoon desserts…
Admittedly, I’m no expert but I certainly know my palate. Thankfully, my wife is also sure of her taste (that’s why she married me, *wink* and we’re blessed with a son who, at the young age of 5, have been dreaming of becoming a chef one day. Needless to say, good food is one of those tangible things that binds our family together.
Last year, my family and I tasted several (but NOT ALL) yogurts, gelato and premium ice creams around the Metro. And since I found luxury of time to upload them back, allow me to review them all to you… just be careful, you might drool on your keyboard, *grin*

From the creamiest and velvety ice creams, to air-less flavorful gelato and yogurts, I officially state that we like them ALL. As I have written here before, I can never imagine a world without them.
Since I’ve tried yogurts from grocery freezers, I’ve known them to have distinctly little sour and tangy taste whether with fruity flavors or just plain. But last Sunday, my view on yogurts’ taste was totally changed as I, Tina and Gabby were treated to GOLDEN SPOON by our friend, LG and thus, we have finally sampled a creamy yogurt that tastes like heavenly ice cream!
At the counter, you can taste-test different flavors before ordering; we even saw 2 ladies in front of us on the queue who just tasted Golden Spoon’s flavors and left the counter without an order. For us, we’re definite of our choices. We preferred 2 of the uncommon variants; those that are uniquely Golden Spoon flavors – CAKE BATTER and BOYSENBERRY. They’re both delicious sans toppings; and absolutely, a must-try!
Golden Spoon has a wide variety of toppings including hot toppings that aren’t offered in other yogurt stores. But IMO, since it tastes like ice cream already, it’s better enjoyed as plain unless for kids who wanted to add some colors to their desserts.
It’s reasonably pricier too than other brands. Golden Spoon Yogurt without toppings costs PhP 88 for MINI and the cups we had were sized at SMALL, costs PhP 155. You can also avail of their large tubs, pints or in cones.
On top of its ice-cream-like taste, the edge of Golden Spoon yogurt above other brands :

Although I and Tina still prefer a bit of sourness in yogurt, I wouldn’t mind paying Golden Spoon another visit to try other flavors!
