Notable Edibles #8 – K-Pop Ice Cream Bar

(I’m going with a short-ish notable edible post for today, eatsplorers … kasi buhay parin ang nangongopya =b)

With typhoon Yolanda looming in the outskirts of the country (hoping you, my fellow foodies in the Mindanao and Visayas areas are doing all right), Race and I decided to take a trip to the grocery to stock up on munchies if ever the rains will put us under house arrest. (I’ve got my fingers crossed that the typhoon dissipates as soon as it hits land.)

With just the smaller canisters of Piknik hot flavor available, I went looking for something that would console me (where did you disappear off to, tall cans of savory hot papitas fritas? *sniff). Off to the freezer section I went to check for ice cream. (Even with us getting through the first week of November, it’s still a bit warm and toasty in the afternoons. *sigh, global warming) Maybe there’s a new Nestle Temptations Flavors of the World  available I thought, but it was still just three country representations so far.

I did see something new in the neighboring ice box, however …

K-Pop Ice Cream Bar

K-Pop Korean inspired ice cream bar

Ice cream bars… three of them. Race went on and gobbled on the honeydew flavored one, pre-photo op. =))

The product name, K-Pop (and the little notation on top of that name) made me think about the Korean ice pops that Race, my foodie loved ones and I have come to love (Melona brand from Korean groceries).  Of course, I was dying to know if Magnolia did it justice and so into the basket, the four flavors of this K-Pop ice cream bar went.  (In fairness, I just know of melon/honeydew flavor from the Melona brand. With Magnolia’s version, we’ve got four flavors to choose from. \m/)

V! ^^,

As you can see from my victory pose above, I liked this too (I knew even with the small piece Race left me =D ).  For P20 a bar, it was pretty good. Not frozen (and in the process of melting) melon/honeydew jelly-ish consistency but this was milkier than its Korean counterpart.  It’s just the right size too to get you to back to normal temp on days like this when the warmth/heat takes up just a few hours in the afternoon. (The other three are for the succeeding days =) Still wishing Yolanda fizzles out.)

Stay safe, warm and dry, my foodie friends! (“,) Till next blog post, hopefully I’ll not be out of sorts by then (at wala nang nakikisawsaw sa nakalagay dito *wink).
