    Nestle’s #Drumstickdares + a recipe for yummy Rum Raisin Ice Cream

    Nestle’s ice cream department seems to be on a roll lately. After coming up with their Temptations Flavours of the World collection, (French Salted Caramel, I love you!) this time they are presenting us with something equally flavour-packed but a bit more handy. Which is to say, they have created ice cream you can carry around because it fits perfectly in your hand. Interestingly enough, the new flavours are rather fancy stuff, with names like Butter Pecan Praline, and Pistachio Almond Caramel. But they also have more classic offerings like Choco-Vanilla and Coffee-Caramel. You can check out my review on the Drumsticks at the bottom of the post. For now,…

    Cozy feelings and Ginger-gingersnap Ice Cream

    Christmastime is almost upon us! I don’t know if you know this, but Christmas season here in the Philippines starts as soon as the -ber months hits, then it ends around February (when shops begin replacing their Christmas decors in favour of Valentine’s). On the first day of September, the malls would begin playing Christmas carols already, and although my training in Marketing tells me this is a ploy to get people in a shopping mood, I can’t deny it does have a way of awakening the Christmas spirit somewhat. All the reds, greens, and yellows- not to mention the jolly tunes blasting from the speakers- have a way of…

    The Super Lemon Ice Cream cure

    I feel like a zombie. Literally. The days have mixed and spilled into each other since the flood; since we began trying to put things back to normal. I don’t even want to look back and count how many days it has been. A lot of people are still struggling to return to their regular routines. Right now all I have is my fatigue and my searing eyes. Sometimes I look up from whatever it is I’m cleaning and I have to think for a full minute about what day of the week it is. Does that ever happen to you, the sensation that time seems to stretch its fingers…

    The best Chocolate Ice Cream I’ve had yet

    I used to tell my little brother off for his tendency to go overly dramatic whenever he eats something he really likes. He closes his eyes and rolls it underneath his eyelids, tosses his head back, and just lets himself savor whatever it was he put in his mouth. Full unadulterated release. I think I finally understand why he does that after I had a taste of this ice cream. Pure. Silky. Decadent. Chocolate. These are the words that tumble through my mind whenever I eat this ice cream. It’s so creamy it literally melts in your mouth. The moment the ice cream touches your tongue, its lovely texture and…
