Metro Manila's Frozen Treats to Beat the Heat

The weather has been erratic—it’s summer, but with rain thrown in the mix. The past few days have been sweltering hot, triggering sales of frozen delights. No, I’m not blogging about that ice cream bar. For a quick relief from the summer heat, I’ve been partial to all things lemony.

First on the list is Ministop’s Cheesecake Sundae. Minsitop is the local version of 7-11 convenience stores. The first time I tried the soft serve ice cream flavour, I thought it was the perfect blend of salty, sweet, and tangy. I particularly like the lemony aftertaste—perfect for summer, like the citrus-based fragrances that lingers lightly. You can have it on a cup or a sweet cone. I love the latter, as it adds texture to the experience.

I’m also a fan of frozen yogurt. I like my fro-yo sweet and tart, and so I’ve been partial to White Hat and Red Mango. In my last visit to the latter, I tried the yuzu lemon flavour. Yuzu is an aromatic citrus used in Korean and Japanese cuisines. I tried it with dried lemon bits and almonds. The tartness of the lemon played nicely with the buttery almonds.

Do a good deed. Share this post.
