Mr. Sun was blazing its sweat-inducing rays so hard that I and my co-bloggers wanted to consume something that would make us escape the summer heat. Yes, I am talking about ice cream! Here, I’ll be discussing about an international ice cream brand from the US that is already here in the Philippines since 2010–the Swensen’s Ice Cream. Meanwhile, Miss Lizzie Guerrero and family (the people behind Swensen’s Ice Cream in PH) held a ribbon cutting event for the opening of Swensen’s Ice Cream’s second branch last May 14, 2014 at SM North Edsa, The Block.
Swensen’s already has branches in Thailand and Singapore. From what I heard from friends, Swensen’s in Singapore offers food as well. The place looks promising and their fantastic ice cream creations are good enough to make me drool!
The person who started it all is Earle Swensen. He opened the first ice cream parlor at San Francisco in 1948. Swensen’s has kept its quality, variety, and value for money for people to appreciate the ultimate sundae experience!
Earthquake (P 675.00) is so large it will cool your world with 8 scoops of ice cream and cherries on top. I ordered the Oreo Brownie (P265.00), because it’s in a waffle basket which I thought would balance the sweetness of the ice cream. Besides, I also wanted to have my ice cream to have a different texture.
Also, the Banana Boat (P 185.00) ice cream gave us a buzz with its vanilla ice cream dashed with strawberry jam! Meanwhile, coffee-lovers will surely love Gold Rush (P220.00) which is a yummy coffee-flavored ice cream
They also have Kid’s Sundaes, Bake Shoppe Sundaes, Shakes, Gourmet Coffee, and other beverages. In line with this, I would like to thank Ace of Swensen’s and Aldous for the invite!
