Why We Find J.CO Frappes To Be Pretty Interesting...

A Dozen of J. Co's Most Popular Donuts

Although J.Co is primarily known for its assortment of ingeniously crafted donuts, J.Co also offers around 17 frappuccino variants divided into two types: Frappe Cappuccino which features double shot espressos; and, Frappe Delight which offers drinks with just a mild caffeine kick.

During my bonding time with my nephew, niece and of course my son Tutapel, aside from feasting on a dozen of our most favorite J.Co Donuts, we also ordered some frappes on the side. What we found delightful was the fact that for every order of any available frappe, we were given one glazzy donut, absolutely free!

No worries. It's an on-going promo so there's no need to hurry just to avail of such. Anyway, please allow me to share with you our chosen variants and what we thought of them.   

 J. Co Donuts Philippines
Left to Right: Strawberry Yogurt Frappe; Choco Forest Frappe; Cappuccino Avocado; Jcoccino Frappe

J.Co Choco Forest Frappe [left] L-Php 150.
Since this particular flavor is under the Frappe Delights category, it has a refreshingly sweet chocolaty register with a very mild caffeine punch. 

J.Co Cappuccino Avocado [right] L-Php 135.
To be very honest, I didn't like this drink that much because I found it to be pretty strong. For starters, I didn't know that this particular variant was really a double shot espresso, which I wasn't really fond of, in the first place. However, I'm sure that coffee addicts will find this selection pretty much in their league.

Jcoccino Frappe (L-Php 150).
Another double espresso drink that is great for self-confessed coffee lovers who desperately need to meet their daily caffeine requirement. :)

J. Co Donuts Philippines

J.Co Strawberry Yogurt Frappe (L-Php 150).
For me, this is the holy grail when it comes to coffee-free frappes. Since it is semi-sweet with a toned-down tartness, I consider it the best donut partner, ever! :)  

  J. Co Donuts Philippines

J.Co Cafe Avocado (L-Php 135).
Another mild tasting coffee drink from the Frappe Delights selection that boasts of a rich avocado taste in every sip. This is truly another favorite aside from the Strawberry Yogurt Frappe. Truly, a must-try!

A Sweet Afternoon @ Almon Marina SM North

What can be sweeter than an afternoon filled with some juicy talks about K-Dramalandia partnered with some delish snacks? In between bites, Mars Cel and I discussed among others, the hit K-Drama That Winter, The Wind Blows, the beautiful chemistry between Jo in Sung and Song Hye Kyo and how wonderful it would be if they become a couple for real. Recent news however has smashed my hope; but, at least there's still a chance for SHK and Hyun Bin to get back together, right? :)   

The stories and Hallyu gossip we shared were as delectable as the snacks we had that afternoon at Almon Marina SM North. :)

Allow me to share with you what we had that interesting afternoon.

Delish Snacks @Almon Marina SM North

New York Lite Sandwich, Soup & Iced Tea Combo.
The idea of eating sandwich and soup is enough to brighten up my day! :) Almon Marina's New York Sandwich boasts of sweet and salty shredded roast chicken with lettuce, tomato, cucumber and topped with a yummy and zesty kind of sauce. Served with potato chips.

Rich, flavorful vegetable-based soup that proved to be the perfect partner to an equally delightful sandwich.

Almon Marina SM North

California Roast Beef. 
A generous serving of roast beef slices topped with mozzarella & swiss Cheeses, fresh asparagus, almond slivers, broccoli sprouts and special dressing. Served with fries on the side.
