Champorado, espasol, banana cue ice cream: The Lost Bread offers new flavors
The 3 Pinoy merienda-inspired flavors are in collaboration with local chocolatier Auro Chocolate and restaurant Hapag MNL

Dessert cafe The Lost Bread has collaborated with local chocolatier Auro Chocolate and Filipino restaurant Hapag for 3 new Pinoy-inspired ice cream flavors: champorado, espasol, and banana cue.

The locally-made artisanal ice cream pints uncannily taste just like the 3 merienda classics, served with their own crunchy toppings for added texture.

The dark Champorado ice cream is the chocoholic’s first choice, made with Auro’s 100% Chocolate Cacao Tablea, black rice, and a crunchy palad brittle on top. There are actual tuyo (salted fish) bits as well, adding that familiarly salty kick.

For fans of the famous Filipino rice cake, try the Espasol. It’s a lighter alternative, made with toasted rice flour, espasol bits, and Auro’s 32% Roasted White Chocolate with Cashew chocolate bar.

The Banana Cue flavor has grilled bananas mixed into the ice cream base, with cashew streusel and Auro Dark Cacao Nibs on top for a contrast of crunch against the creamy, sweet ice cream.

Each pint costs P450. For all 3, they cost P1,350.

The Lost Bread’s new offerings are available starting September 28. They can be ordered from The Lost Bread’s website or via Hapag’s Instagram page. –
