I know this statement is so rare and so unexpected, but I’m not a fan of sweets. There, I said it! I know I may have gotten a few haters out there but I guess I grew up not liking sweets. (Nag-Nido kasi ako! hello there! joke!)
I’m a big fan of Katy Perry (SHE’S SO HOT) and I love the California Girls video, but I’m not a fan of cake, ice cream or even CHOCOLATE. I rarely go out of my way to find a resto to order dessert. Some of the sweets I like are chewy oatmeal cookies, red velvet cupcakes, plain yogurt and mochi. That’s it. I know right, BOOOORIIIIING.
But once in a while, there’s this one day that I crave for sweet stuff the WHOLE DAY! But these sweet stuff are not your usual, decadent chocolate-y, heavy syrup desserts, I like it with a mix of something that I enjoy eating.
So my story is about one very unusual sweet tooth night, and to my boyfriend, Eugene’s surprise, the historical night when I said “I want something sweet.”
Eugene: “Sweet? Seriously? Then let’s go dessert hopping!“
DESSERT HOPPING?! That’s sounds so crazy right? Well it was! We only had less than an hour because it was 10pm already and most restaurants close at 11pm. So we planned it out and finalized on 3 spots.
1) FIRST STOP: UCC!
UCC’s Frozen Brazo de Mercedes (P 230) I’ve been craving for this for about a week and my officemates and I were supposed to order a whole tray of this at Dasma but we didn’t push through. So I just had to get it! UCC is soooo pricey though, the whole tray of Frozen Brazo at Dasma is just 600 pesos!
I’ve fallen in love with frozen brazo since I tried Sweet Life of Angge last 2006. Since then I was hooked and it’s been a staple “bitbit” during special occasions. Now, I like the one from a household that sells frozen brazo in Dasmarinas Village. It’s not so sweet as Angge’s and the french ice cream is so good cos it’s not too sweet and you can tell it’s fresh and homemade!
2) SECOND STOP: White Hat!
White Hat’s Plain Yogurt You read it right! I like my yogurt plain and boring. I really love the taste of yogurt and toppings just ruin how delightful and sour it tastes so I enjoy eating it plain! I enjoy white hat’s cos it’s almost as good as Red Mango.
3) THIRD STOP: Dezato
Dezato’s Mochi Ice Cream in Green Tea and Coffee flavors (Php 40) I’m a big fan of mochi, buchi and just sticky rice! I love how the plain mochi can bring out the flavors in green tea. Omigosh! It’s so good, I want one right now. I like eating Mochi ice cream after 5 minutes defrosting in room temperature. Just when the mochi is back to it’s chewy state and the ice cream is still hard enough to bite into.
After 1 hour and 10 minutes, Dezato was closing on us and I had a huge smile on my face! Dessert hopping was GOOOOD. It’s sugar rush X 100. I think we might just do this every month.
