PAGASA declared a wet summer and the often fickle weather presently prevailing is living up to that paradox. But climate change or not, what’s summer without warm days sweetened by dollops of ice cream? Well, you know it’s going to be an interesting summer when Selecta comes up with not one but four new chocolate flavors.
Lagal[og] says: I have to put in more hours in the gym just to somehow make up for the hefty caloric input of having to taste four ice cream flavors. Hard to complain though as each one is well worth the extra cardio. It’s pretty hard to choose though — would it be Reese’s first, Kisses, second? Or Hershey’s Classic Milk Chocolate or Milk Chocolate with Almonds?
Ironwulf says: First time I saw a pint of Selecta Hershey’s Reese’s at a convenience store, I got excited since Reese’s is one of my favorite sweet treats. I loved its peanut-ty flavor which isn’t too sweet. Especially when I get to the part where I chew on the chunks of Reese’s nuts embedded in the chocolate ice cream. It’s a good thing I’m sharing it with friends or I would have finished the whole pint.
Lagal[og] says: I’m a chocoholic so my natural inclination is to have the Classic Milk Chocolate. The mouth feel is velvety, the milk chocolate is rich and creamy. I also like the Milk Chocolate with Almonds. Digging deeper, you’ll unearth loads of chocolate chip bits and swirls with roasted almonds providing a nice crunch to complement the smooth milk chocolate. The Classic Milk Chocolate may has less of the frills of its sibling but being less sweet than the variant with almonds, it’s easier to finish off the whole pint without realizing it.
Ironwulf says: First time I tried the Selecta Hershey’s Kisses was during my sister’s birthday. My brother bought a gallon for eating at home. It was creamy, not as chocolatey but I love the multitude of textures here, from the crunchy biscuits, to the small dark choco bits. The syrup made the ice cream a lot sweeter but all in all, I enjoyed each spoonful.
