Summer’s over so one would think that our predilection for ice cream would wane, right?
Not when Aqua S, Australia’s premium soft-serve ice cream, has arrived at our shores and opened its first Philippine store at SM North EDSA.
What makes this ice cream so special? Well, as my fellow foodies from #WeLoveToEatPH and #SaanSaPH and I found out, aside from the sweet-salty tastiness of Aqua S’ Signature Sea Salt flavor, it has also developed serving up its soft serve as an artform.
First, you choose how you want to enjoy your ice cream.
You can go for one with a black waffle cone (Php160) or one in an Aqua S cup (Php130 for 5oz | Php160 for 8oz).
Second, pick your flavor.
Of course, you’ve got to try the Signature Sea Salt variant! You would know it by its bright, ethereal aqua color, reminiscent of the calm, tropical sea, and its sea salt flavor, a delicate balance between sweet and salty that tickles your tongue and has you reaching for more.
Every fifteen days, Aqua S launches new exciting flavors. Available from July 1 to 15 are the fruity Strawberry Milkshake and earthy-yet-sweet Matcha Frappe. You can enjoy these variants by themselves or twisted with the Signature Sea Salt (which I highly recommend!).
Finally, make your artwork.
Choose from a variety of toppings and add-ons at Php30 each that will not only make your ice cream a treat for your tastebuds, but a feast for your ice as well. For example:
- Fairy Floss is a bed of delicate cotton candy that will make your ice cream seem to float on a cloud.
- Sweet Popcorn adds more of that salty-sweet dynamic to your dessert.
- Popping Candy adds some color and zing to your ice cream.
- Grilled Marshmallow on a Peppero stick adds more of that gooey sweetness to an already indulgent dessert.
So if you’re looking for a new kind of sweetness, drop by Aqua S and check out its yummy and pretty ice cream variants. In fact, come back at least every two weeks to taste its new flavors.
Thanks to Mr. Vincent Aurelio, Mr. Stephen Chua and Ms. Vicky Chua of Aqua S for the wonderful ice cream experience.
Aqua S is located at Upper Ground Floor, Main Building, SM City North EDSA, Bago Bantay, QC.
