12 Unique Ice Cream Flavors To Try In Manila

The heat is intense. I say this while I lie on my bed with my electric fan directly in front of me as I type without a shirt on. The heat is just extreme. Of course, living in a tropical country where it’s hot and humid most of the time, what else can we do but find ways to beat the heat? Our go-to: ice cream.

There’s nothing quite like munching on something sweet and cool at the same time. And sure, chocolate and vanilla are both amazing flavors, but why stop there? Add more thrill to your ice cream eating sessions with these unique flavors we found all around the Metro.
