For years, we’ve been accustomed to eating our favorite cheesecake slices served on a plate with a fork on the side. You know, the usual way. Well, that’s all about to change. Last March 2018, Crave It, a vendor at Mercato BGC, started serving frozen cheesecakes on a stick, and it was an instant hit! People were lining up to get this innovative (and very Instagrammable) treat. In fact, it became such a success that the owners recently decided to get a bigger booth at the night market. (image taken from Crave It’s Facebook account) What exactly is it, you ask? Well, for starters, they take a slice of frozen cheesecake, insert a stick in it, and they cover it in a milk chocolate chocolate shell. Then, according to your chosen flavor, they would shower it with the most delicious toppings you can think of. Their best seller is Romeo which is topped with Oreo crumbs, chocolate chips, and finished off with a drizzle of white chocolate. We’re absolutely sure that your children would love to try this treat! Crave It is located at Mercato Centrale BGC every Wednesday to Saturday, 6pm-3am.
There are so many ways to eat ice cream. You can eat it with a spoon, eat it off a cone, or even blend it in with delicious toppings to make a milkshake. Recently though, Sebastian’s Ice Cream, an ice cream company in the Philippines, decided to change the game forever. They took tiny balls of ice cream and dipped them in a sauce which would harden into a shell, leaving you with bite-sized treats for you to easily munch on. These are called Poppits. They’re simple, very addicting, and really affordable too! At P120 for eight pieces or P190 for 16 pieces, you would surely fulfill your ice cream cravings.

It seems like the perfect blend of sweet and savory. The other flavors that they offer are Ube (ube ice cream in a purple white chocolate shell), Cookies N’ Crème (cookies n’ creme ice cream in a white chocolate shell), Vanilla (creamy vanilla ice cream in a crisp white chocolate shell), Dark Chocolate (rich dark chocolate ice cream in a bittersweet chocolate shell), and Red Velvet (cream cheese ice cream with red velvet crumble in a red velvet cocoa shell). Make sure to give these a try before the lines get really long though! Just a quick word of warning: Once you pop, you can’t stop. Poppits are available at Sebastian’s Ice Cream, 4/F Ayala Malls Vertis North, Mindanao Avenue, Quezon City, Philippines
