baskin robbins ice cream: a monthful of flavors

Published July 8, 2014 by ladyemelye

this ice cream brand reopened it’s door once more to philippine customers last july 2.  and there have been long lines since then.  one afternoon, we braved the lines so that we could get a taste of this ice cream.  a lot of people were definitely excited and they said that having a taste of this ice cream brings back fond memories from their childhood.

all their 31 flavors are available, so you can try one flavor a day, for a month, before deciding which is your favorite.  admittedly, it was very hard to choose which one to try first, so the queue affords you sometime before you make a decision and give your order.  you can even ask for samples of the flavors that you are eyeing so that you can finally take your pick.

so what’s in their menu?  here are the offerings:

  • junior scoop: single (85.00), double (145.00), triple (195.00)
  • regular scoop: single (119.00), double (199.00), triple (279.00)
  • +20.00 for the waffle cone, +40.00 for the fancy waffle cone
  • pint (325.00)
  • quart (595.00)
  • half gallon (1150.00)
  • milkshakes (jamoca almond fudge, very berry strawberry, mint chocolate chip): small (150.00), medium (190.00), large (220.00)
  • blasts (cappuccino, mocha, caramel): small (110.00), medium (150.00), large (190.00)
  • fruit blasts (strawberry, mango): small (110.00), medium (150.00), large (190.00)
  • build your own sundae: single (139.00), double (209.00), triple (279.00)
  • ice cream cake: 1/4 sheet (1100.00), full sheet (3850.00)

they have other items like the twist sundae – ice cream on top of a layer of toppings like hot fudge, almonds, whipped cream and cherries, flavor wave – mix and match of 5 mini scoops and shake mixology – milkshakes that combine two different flavors of your choice.

junior double scoop - chocolate chip cookie dough & love potion #31

junior double scoop – chocolate chip cookie dough & love potion #31

i got a junior double scoop consisting of chocolate chip cookie dough & love potion #31.  the chocolate chip cookie dough was just the right amount of sweetness and creaminess punctuated by bits of cookie dough and chocolate.  the love potion #31 is a winner for me.  i love the combination of the raspberry and the chocolate.  it is sweet, with a slight tang plus the richness of the chocolate.  this is a flavor i would not get tired of.

good thing this is just walking distance from our office.  we could get ice cream anytime we feel like it.  plus the fact that we could “burn” the calories by walking to and from. 😉

swensen’s

hubby, my niece and i have always been fond of ice cream.  ever since this ice cream parlor opened in Mall of Asia, we have been eyeing to try it out.  so one afternoon, we decided to fulfill our sweet cravings at swensen’s.

swensen’s

they have a menu with extensive offerings of sundaes, parfaits, shakes and other ice cream creations that would suit whatever you want in an ice cream.

the place was also warm and cozy, servers are very attentive, and we especially liked the glasses in which the water was served.  once you sit down on your table, they immediately serve you water.  this is nice since you need to wash away all the sweetness you will have from the ice cream.

so here is what we ordered:

sweet n’ gold – php 185.00

strawberry stripes – php 255.00

nutty crispy tower – php 245.00

ebony and ivory – php 265.00

chocolate ring a ding – php 245.00

we liked how each of our orders were a balance of sweetness, crunch and other flavors.  i loved the macadamia ice cream and caramel syrup on my ebony and ivory order.  the sweet and gold on the other hand has nata de coco and corn kernels.

one could also create your own concoctions by choosing your ice cream flavor, syrup and toppings that you want.

the price is a little high for just an order of ice cream, but it would be a good indulgence once in a while.  will definitely go back to try their other offerings.

amici

Published March 22, 2009 by ladyemelye

last friday, Junjun and I had our “date” at Amici in Don Bosco. i have heard a lot about this place and decided to check it out.

for a brief background, amici was used to be a school cafeteria ran by the priests of don bosco. But some years ago, it was bought by the group that owns red ribbon. since then, there have been changes. other branches have also been open.

for our dinner, we ordered al quattro formaggi (pizza), cannelloni agli spinaci (pasta) and soda. of course, we also had gelato.

al quattro formaggi (four cheeses) – Php 290.00

cannelloni agli spinaci (spinach and ricotta cheese in pasta tubes topped with tomato sauce) – Php 195.00

gelato (ice cream – blueberry/mint with chocolate) – Php 50.00 per cup

overall, i liked how the food tasted. the pasta was good, and even though there was a lot of spinach, it did not taste like vegetables. the pizza was a combination of the different cheeses. and of course the gelato… if i wasn’t too full, i would have gotten another cup. the ambiance was nice, there were three counters that could take your orders. service was fast, and the servers were attentive. i hope i could go back and try the other dishes… and sample other flavors of the gelato. =)
