Novotel's year-round solution to beat the heat in Manila - their very own ice cream shop!
Say hello to the newest ice cream destination in town! Ice N' Cream by Novotel opened their doors just last Sunday with a Buy One, Get One promo up until April 29!
For every purchase of one scoop of any ice cream flavor, you get another for free!
Made from premium local and imported ingredients from Germany and France, gluten-free, less sugar and stabilizer-free, the Ice N Cream by Novotel showcases yummy flavors like Cocoyeah, creamy coconut milk mixed with slivers of young coconut meat; Passionista, pleasantly sweet and tart silky passionfruit goodness; Papa Don Preach (alcoholic), plump, juicy raisins enhanced with a kick of warmth from rum; Oh Honey Honey (sugar-free), local lime zing blended with Tagaytay honey; Yo Berry Yo!, merriment of tartness from Swiss yogurt and mixed berries; Leche De Almond, velvety leche flan crowned with crunchy Almond Florentine; Wake Me Up Before You Go Go, rich notes of coffee with real coffee bean crunch; and more luscious flavors. Ice N Cream flavors are reasonably priced from 100 nett per scoop.
More than the delish ice cream offerings, Ice N Cream by Novotel also features freshly made pastries and baked favorites like Coconut Cheesecake, Chocolate Praline Cake, Mini Mango Passion Cake, Croissant, Danish breads, Double Chocolate Chip cookies, Honey Pistachio cookies and much more.
Last week, I attended a preview of the shop and got first taste of their delicious flavors! We even got to create our own Le Mont Gourmand - a 15-scoop ice cream bowl served with various toppings like bananas, macarons, mixed nuts, caramel and chocolate syrup, and whipped cream!
For the flavors, we picked Oui Vanilla (Vanilla), Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go (Caffe Latte), Choco Goes Nuts (Choco Peanut), It Match-A Been Love (Matcha), Purple Dream (Ube and Langka), Green with Envy (Avocado), Smell Me, Taste Me, Love Me (Durian), Leche De Almond (Leche Flan), Cocoyeah (Coconut), Breezy Berry (Mixed Berries with Mint), Mango Tango (Mango), Tijuana Surprise (Cucumber Dalandan Tequila), Papa Don Preach (Rum Raisin), Kirsch Me (Black Forest), Yo Berry Yoi (Yogurt with Berries), and Oh Honey Honey (Calamansi and Honey).
We were presented with over 30 toppings and only a few minutes to create the prettiest bowl of ice cream possible!
Here's the result: Our very own Le Mont Gourmand which my team decided to name "Bet Na Bet Sherbet" just to tease me. Okay, fine, guys. :))
We lost, but it wasn't so bad since they let us eat all the ice cream we wanted afterwards! It's the best consolation prize ever!! Haha!
My favorites? The Choco Goes Nuts, Kirsch Me, and Leche de Almond (I think everyone loved this!)
I do recommend you drop by one of these days and try out their amazingly tasty flavors! They have the classics, some Philippine flavors, sorbets, sugar-free flavors, and would you believe, even alcoholic ones!
