When you hear Ice Ice Baby you only think of Vanilla Ice and those old 80's tunnel pants that you still have in the closet. I'm a frozen yogurt lover so when the buzz around town traveled my way that California Berry's going to have their first ever bloggers event I hurriedly signed up for it; and boy was I in for a great thing to do that afternoon with the guys!
Here's a sneak peek at their prices which are all relatively cheaper than the other Froyo stores. They've got lots more in store too because where else would you find pasta and coffee to go along with your favorite frozen yogurt. I love their signature frozen yogurt creations together with huge chunks of seasonal fruits that are so healthy and perfect for diet fanatics like me!
Look at some of the images inside the store and you'll feel like you're in heaven! Aren't these so cute and adorable!
You won't go wrong with any of the toppings that they offer from jelly beans to chocolate bits they've got it all under one roof!
I wanted to open up each container and put them all on my frozen yogurt so I could taste all of you at one bite! I'd like to stay fruity this time though rather than going all out on nuts! That's a good second serving idea though! =)
For those who need to perk up in the morning they've got lots of coffee offerings also. You don't have to go for those expensive ones that are pretty much just all fancy coffee. For the same price you would probably get one and a half of what they've got in the store. It was strong and good for me since I needed to go to work right after the event.
They've got smoothies available too so if you plan to have just those fruits you love, they can make it in a jiffy! It's fresh and so easy for you to try out! Not too sweet, perfect for those who would want to stay away from too much sugar intake and diabetics. Ask the sugar water to be removed and they'll gladly oblige!
For the hungry ones, they also have pasta that can fill you up in minutes. Hot and so scrumptious you'll be tempted to take some of it home too! I tasted the lasagna and that was just pure bliss! Cheese over cheese over pasta... the only thing you think about when you're hungry!
Lasagna... which topped my list of favorite foods there was so nice. It was highly recommended by the staff and the people who organized the event. I like the cheesy top layer most which in my books should be the requirement of any Italian dish!
Seafood Carbonara for the health conscious and another serving of frozen yogurt after that wouldn't hurt your diet plans since its nonfat froyo! This one packs a punch but if you are allergic to seafood like I am you can go with the other meaty choices instead!
Spaghetti Bolognese that tastes a little tangy and meaty should be the perfect tummy filler before you get desert from the same store.
Here's my first bite at the Lasagna which is first on the list of Garfield and me! =) It was really nice and great for the budget. Only a few pesos for a serving pack you can reheat in the microwave. So good!
Next up was Mango Bango which I actually loved because it is not too sweet. You won't get too much sugar rush when drinking this one. The perfect way to beat the summer heat!
The Very Berry Strawberry was nice and you can still taste a little bit of those fruit chunks they prepare for you just like the yogurt flavors they have.
This was soft and tasted like you were eating pillows or clouds. Those ice cream shavings was pretty good. I wasn't fond of the ice cream and could have sticked to the frozen yogurt but they gave it away for me for free. Wish there was something to rave about but I was so preoccupied with the games they let us play. It was nice though because I got to enjoy my time with the other bloggers present at the event! I love Ice Ice Baby! Glad to have tasted it mmmm!!!!
I'd give California Berry another visit soon on their Tomas Morato Branch. They've got more of em around Metro Manila and major cities in the Philippines too!
Congratulations to young owners Kyle Yu and Kirk Wang for a successful launch! I wouldn't be surprised if there were more girls eating at your store because let's face it... you are handsome just like me! LOL! Again congratulations!
