trying happy lemon concoctions for the first time

beverages, Happy Lemon, short order

I have been meaning to give this a try since I chanced upon a tv program that featured this up + coming  joint. + finally after a few months of wondering how it would taste like, I managed to satisfy my curiosity when we had our first taste of this thirst-quenching drink from Happy Lemon. I ordered a large Cocoa Rock Salt + Cheese + I must say I am hooked + I cannot wait for the second helpings!

short orders, beverages, Happy Lemon

The queue was considerably long when we lined up at the Trinoma Branch of Happy Lemon for our orders. But it was all worth the trouble + the wait. We had quite a long day that hot + humid Sunday afternoon + this smooth combination of sweet + salty is a perfect way to cool us down + cap the day away.  For Php100, I’d say it is worth every cent. I will definitely be back for more.  They also have a variety of cool items I would like to try, including the Lemon Yogurt with Aloe, Lemon Yakult, Deluxe Cocoa with Pudding + Pearl Sago! How I wish there is local branch nearby! 🙂

Joining this for the very first time:

krispy kreme’s 75th birthday

food deals, desserts, doughnuts, food for a cause
Our favorite doughnut is turning another year older this month + as a treat to all its loyal clients, they are celebrating with more delicious treats! Read on this short press release for more information:
As Krispy Kreme turns 75 flavorful years this 2012, the world-famous doughnut and coffee brand continues to tap the taste buds and heartstrings of more and more people while sharing and celebrating delicious tastes and fond memories.
Spanning more than 690 shops in 21 countries, Krispy Kreme has been exciting the world with distinct confectionery experience brought by its delectable variety of doughnuts, baked goods, and coffee. Hence, it wasn’t a surprise to witness how the brand touched the hearts and tickled the palates of Filipinos when it arrived in the Philippines six years ago. And as it continues to successfully expand in the country, Krispy Kreme is bringing everyone more reasons to smile—not only with its mouth-watering delights but also with projects that resonate with the lives of their valued customers.
Furthering its Heritage of Sharing
How exactly does Krispy Kreme aim to do this? One, by helping its 12 partner charities—12 organizations that care for the environment: ABS-CBN Foundation Inc. – Bantay Kalikasan and Philippine Native Plants Conservation Society Inc.; creativity: Cultural Center of the Philippines, Visual Arts and Museum Division; lives: Caritas Manila Inc., Philippine Red Cross, and ICanServe Foundation Inc.; our animal friends: Philippine Animal Welfare Society; and of course, kids:Operation Smile Philippines, Kythe Inc., Development and Accessibility Fund for the Deaf Inc., Autism Society Philippines, and Friends of Hope Inc.
Being a remarkable doughnut and coffee brand that humbly upholds the value of ‘sharing’, Krispy Kreme extends this good deed by calling everyone to work hand-in-hand towards change. With every purchase of the brand’s 75th Birthday Tin Can, P20 goes to these partner charities, which translates every purchase to doing good, bringing smiles, creating change and spreading joy in the most enjoyable and delightful way possible.

 

Bringing Everyone More Reasons to Smile
Keeping up with its 75th birthday celebration, Krispy Kreme will also be rolling out fresh products, bringing more options and reasons for its customers to delight in the one-of-a-kind goodness brought by doughnuts and coffee.

From July 11 to August 19, the brand will be launching its birthday treats for everyone—the Krispy Kreme Birthday Doughnuts and the Krispy Kreme Birthday Chiller. Infused with such melt-in-your-mouth joy, the White Chocolate Iced Glazed, Dark Chocolate Iced Glazed, and Strawberry Iced Glazed Doughnuts are iced glazed rings with rainbow sprinkles and a generous dollop of white cream finished with a cherry. Meanwhile, blended with refreshing goodness, the Birthday Chiller is an iced chocolate drink with sprinkles made even more special with Hershey’s Dark chocolate.

To further the celebration, from July 11 to August 8, anyone who purchases a Dozen Assorted with any of the Birthday Doughnuts, then coupled with one Birthday Chiller of any size in a single transaction will be entitled to one raffle coupon. This raffle coupon, which will be drawn with all the others on August 10, gives a customer a chance to win 12 VIP tickets to watch Saltimbanco by Cirque du Soleil at the SM Mall of Asia Arena on August 17. In addition, Cirque du Soleil will be giving discounts for tickets acquired at Krispy Kreme stores upon purchase of a Dozen Assorted coupled with a Birthday Doughnut.
And because Krispy Kreme cannot get enough of sharing the gift of joy and bringing people more reasons to smile, from July 13 to 31, everyone will be able to grab a special bundle of an Original Glazed Doughnut and an 8 oz. cup of Signature Coffee for only P75!

How are all of these for more and more reasons to smile? As it continues to uphold its name and etch its flavors in our hearts, Krispy Kreme is on the move to make it easier for everyone to experience melt-in-your-mouth joy with such fresh offerings and new stores — continuing to expand its reach to satisfy the tastes of doughnut and coffee enthusiasts across the country.
