a cup of dirty ice cream

I know the name might put some off, especially those who did not grow up here in the Philippines, but dirty ice cream only denotes those ice cream that are peddled by the friendly manong around town. Sure it was very cold even during daytime, you’d wonder if you’re still in Bulacan or have been transported to Boston while you were sleeping, but I thought this afternoon is just the best time to enjoy a cup of this delicious street ice cream. Besides, I went through the trouble of hollering the vendor from the second floor balcony! 🙂

I paid Php25 for this cup of chocolate and cheese flavored local ice cream and I must say they sure tasted better than the rest of the dirty ice cream I have tried before. I enjoyed my cup a lot I did not mind that I was feeling too cold after I finished it. I just wish I can influence the little man to have a spoonful or two.

Beating The Summer Heat With Ice Cream

Can you believe this heat? The sweltering heat just shoot up to the most intolerable degrees and everyone seems to be doing whatever they can to beat the summer heat. One of my faves? A scoop {or two or more! ;)} of my favorite ice cream.

My siblings went home a few weeks ago with these and we had such a wonderful time catching up our summer adventures {or lack of it}.  This is one of the new flavors of ice cream Selecta has recently came up. I particularly enjoyed it + I love the fact that you get to enjoy 3 different flavors in one tub. Mango is my most favorite of all! 🙂

This 1.5 liter  tub also comes with a free box of wafer cones which made us enjoy our ice cream experience even more! 🙂

Oh well, writing about this now is making me crave for another scoop, maybe I will get some later on when I go out with the little man, once I am done reading these nifty tips on how to speed up my pc at Iolo.com. 😉
