Although it’s not too hot this summer, the temperature tends to get higher in midday sun. And that’s the perfect time to go out and get yourself a cup of ice cream! Yum yum.
What’s your favorite ice cream flavor? I go for rocky road, strawberry, langka (jackfruit), and that sinfully sweet choco fudge brownies! There are people who don’t like chocolate-based flavors, just like my grandma. She would always pick the halo-halo or the macapuno ice cream and dumps the super sweet flavored ones.
On lazy summer days, nothing beats coolers like ice cream. And if you’re just bumming around the neighborhood, dirty ice cream saves the day! Don’t you miss those days when you’re off from school and after lunch you would hear the bell of mamang sorbetero ringing over and over? Delightful. There’s a popular sorbetes producer in Lipa City — the Rocafort Ice Cream.
Dirty ice cream or sorbetes. Why did they call it as such? To create distinction, sorbetes is the one sold on the street and there’s the one produced by huge ice cream companies and are sold on supermarkets and ice cream parlors. Did they tag sorbetes as dirty ice cream because it’s being sold on the street? Share us what you know.
Nothing beats the old apa (cone) that sweet little cone which now costs P5 with 2 or 3 scoops. Others would opt for ice cream in a bun. That one’s a bit heavy on your tummy! Perfect for afternoon merienda.
As time gets older, ice cream gets weirder. Imagine the flavors coming out these days — wasabi, jalapeno, spaghetti and cheese, sardines, garlic, candied bacon, and beer! Beer! I don’t want to add some more disgusting images in your mind but have you heard of the horseflesh, shark fin, ox tongue flavors?! Eeeeww.
Will you try any of these weird ice cream flavors? Nah-ah. I’ll just stick with the plain old ube and cheese.
