What can you expect when you find yourself at BLK 513? Coming from a recent visit with a friend at BLK 513’s SM North EDSA outlet, let me break it down for y’all!
One: Its unique dark colored frozen dark skim yogurt.
Made of Greek yogurt which is denser and creamier than regular yogurt, it is further enhanced by the inclusion of activated charcoal, one of the world’s oldest and most trusted detoxifying agent that promotes healthy digestion and anti-aging among others.
Two: The wide variety of crunchy ingredients that you can add to your froyo for added texture.
These include a gamut of cereals. cookie crumbs and cake bits so, wherever your taste lies in the crunch spectrum, there’s something that matches your preference. My favorite among these is the butter bars that serve as a wholesome yet decadent addition to my dessert.
Three: Fresh fruit bits that add more natural sweetness to your frozen treat.
Take your pick from chopped strawberries, cubed mangoes and peaches, sliced kiwi fruits and more. My favorites among these are peaches and mangoes which I think go really well with frozen yogurt.
Four: The array of premium dessert sauces that you can have drizzled into and on top of your froyo treat.
I still dream of the Valrhona Gold Milk that’s sadly still only available in BLK 513’s Glorietta branch. Choices available in this store include the herby Chocolate Chai Tea, the cookie butter goodness of Spice Cookie Caramel, Strawberry Cheesecake and the decadent Dark Valrhona Fudge. In this instance, I opted for the Faux Ferrero sauce; made with milk chocolate, hazelnut bits and cereal, it added even more interesting texture to my dessert.
Five: Instagrammable surrounding that serve as pretty backdrops for your froyo shots.
Despite occupying a small space in the mall, BLK 513 affords you many background or flatlay options for your foodie shots. Position your dessert against the faux green vines or the walls artfully decorated with sayings.
I love the feel of the froyo in my mouth as well as its not being overly sweet. With the crunchies, fruits and sauce added into the cup or cone, there is an interesting interplay of sweetness and tanginess as well as a mix of various textures.
BLK 513’s frozen Greek yogurt enhanced with activated charcoal offerings are available in two options:
Dark Skim Cup (Php189): froyo with your choice of one crunch, two fruits and one sauce.
Dark Skim Cone (Php150): froyo with your choice of one crunch and one sauce.
