Dessert Discovery: Cold Creamy Comfort Food

The weather has been uncomfortably sweltering lately and what better way to comfort yourself but with a great scoop of ice cream!

hubby and i found this stall as we were trying to resist splurging on a couple of automatic tickers

what caught our interest about New Zealand Natural, aside ftom the wide range of cold desserts on display, is that the two attendants were very inviting, not your average ice cream stall in Megamall, if i may say so. They even let you taste the flavors you’re interested in before you decide which scoop to get -cool!

Aside from ice cream, they also sold gelato and sorbet but after giving a few flavors a try, i honestly couldn’t make up my mind which one i wanted! A few minutes of internal debating went by and finally, i decided to ask for a scoop of hokey pokey on a large sugar cone

hokey pokey, i found out, is the most famous flavor in New Zealand, the country that is, aside from Vanilla. New Zealand Natural’s version of hokey pokey is made of crunchy butterscotch balls folded into creamy honey comb flavored ice cream

…and when i say creamy, i mean crea-my!

my delicious sugar cone topped with smooth ice cream that deliciously melted in my mouth, and just when i thought i was ready for another mouthful, the velvety cream was interrupted by crunchy sweet butterscotch bits…

…definitely made me a happy customer!

What comforts you during the summer heat?
