So there has been a rise of convenience stores in the metro. Gone are the days that only 7-11 is the reigning corner store. Now we have Ministop, Alfamart, Family Mart (a personal favorite) and Lawson. One thing they seem to have in common is upping each other in the soft serve ice cream department. I know I recently just tried the black sesame ice cream from Family Mart but I could resist blogging about the bamboo charcoal ice cream.
I asked the cashier what the ice cream was. She basically said it was just vanilla, but black. So much for excitement there. I decided to try it anyway. I have no idea of benefits (or consequences) of consuming this, but I would assume it is safe anyway 🙂
So yeah, the bamboo charcoal added color and nothing else. But the great thing was the vanilla ice cream was really delicious for me. Milky thicker than other ice cream I have tried. And I would love to have this regularly, sans the color. Too bad the only Lawson store is very far from where I go around in. The store is located in Sta. Ana, Manila. It was worth a try anyway. 🙂
