If you haven't had cereal milk ice cream before, it's pretty much ice cream made from corn cereals soaked in a milk base. The result? A thicker, creamier ice cream with a chewy, cake-y consistency.
"Soulful home cooking" local business Arfrateli sells exactly this – frozen milk cereal ice cream in 3 signature flavors, Unicorn Dream, Ever After, and After-School, at P350 a pint.
They're definitely easy on the eyes, and interesting on the tongue, too – Arfrateli's Unicorn Dream flavor features swirls of pretty colors, and tastes like a sweet, milky, cake-turned-ice cream. You'll really taste the bits of cereal in every bite, which makes it a slightly heavier alternative to regular ice cream.
The purple-yellow Ever After flavor, on the other hand, mixes in the savory flavor of queso ice cream with the distinctly sweet flavor of ube – a treat for fans of salty-sweet flavor combos.
There's also their newest flavor, After-School, which is a play on the classic childhood ice scramble – the pink ice cream tastes just like the banana-flavored ice shavings, topped with milk powder, marshmallows, choco syrup, and rainbow sprinkles. Fans of both ice scramble and cereal milk ice cream won't be disappointed!
BTW: Arfrateli's cereal milk ice cream is 100% vegetarian, as no animal-derived fats are used to preserve their products.
Every pint order is delivered to you cold and in a cute, insulated bag with free ice packs inside. For orders of two pints and more, each pint will cost P315 instead.
