MANILA, Philippines – Sweet tooths, you’re in for a treat this holiday season! Local artisanal ice cream brand Merry Moo has released a pastry-centric ice cream collaboration with Hizon’s Ensaymada – the Ensaymada Ice Cream!
The limited edition flavor uses Merry Moo’s signature creamy vanilla ice cream, mixed in with the iconic buttery-cheesy ensaymada flavor of Hizon’s. The pint is topped with actual fluffy ensaymada bites for some texture, adding also a slightly savory cheesy hint to complement the ice cream’s sweetness.
Hizon’s Cakes & Pastries, established in 1946 and based in Ermita, is fondly known as “the first and original bakeshop in Manila.” Having made a name for itself as a longtime staple in Manila’s rich history, nothing beats their iconic Cheddar Ensaymada, which is widely considered to be one of the best in the metro thanks to its pillowy texture and crisp, buttery crust. Hizon’s is also known for its Queso de Bola Ensaymada and Mocha Chiffon Cake.
Merry Moo is a local artisanal ice cream store known for unique flavors like Turon and Buko Pie, Cheesy Mamon, and Mocha Cake, which is also a Hizon’s collaboration. They’ve also partnered with other establishments like Lola Nena’s, Run Rabbit Run, and Mommy Treats for limited edition flavors.
You can get a pint of Hizon’s Ensaymada Ice Cream pint via their website or through Hizons’s Viber account (0916 507 6723). You can also opt to buy from Merry Moo’s kiosks in SM Aura, Megamall, Mall of Asia, and Robinsons Magnolia. – Rappler.com
