If you think that there are a lot of Koreans here in Metro Manila, you're in for a shock. In Baguio, the Korean population is at an all time high! They say that Koreans have been seeking refuge in the City of Pines not just for the cool weather but because of the unresolved and escalating conflict between North and South Korea. In a city where you will see Koreans practically everywhere, it is no wonder that even at SM Baguio there is a store that sells a plethora of Asian food items.
Flavors of Asia offers not only Asian sauces and noodles but also Korean ice cream!
Here I discovered Lotte Black Crunch Bar which I later fell in love with!
This Korean version of our best-loved Pinipig is so positively sinful to the last bite. The vanilla ice cream dipped in an overload of semi sweet chocolate is both crunchy and nutty to delight the senses. Every bite is an absolute delight! I can't wait to get a taste of this at a Korean grocery nearby. I hope that I can still get it for P29.00 though...
Another discovery was Melon Flavored Ice Cream Bar which we got for just P31.00. It is tangy and semi sweet at the same time, filling your mouth with a burst of freshness!
When I first bought these goodies, I was expecting them to be bland and forgettable. But now that I finally tasted Korean ice cream, I don't think my weekends will be complete without getting a taste of either one of them!
How about you what's your favorite Korean ice cream?
