As a food blogger I sometimes get free stuff to review. Sometime they email me informing me of the products I will expect. Sometimes said products never arrive. Often times I receive them as promised.
The best products are those I don’t expect at all like this box from FIC or Fruits in Ice Cream. Normally it takes me a while to review these products since I prioritze my travels or restaurant meals. But when I receive something this nicely packaged and well thought of campaign I didn’t waste time in shooting and eating the ice cream.
I’m not much of an ice cream lover. As a matter of fact I never buy ice cream in the supermarket. Eating ice cream usually makes me cough since I usually find it too sweet. But FIC’s frozen custard was so creamy and not cloyingly sweet that I didn’t cough at all.
My first creation was straight off their recipe card since the cheesecake flavored frozen custard was just perfect with the blueberry sauce and graham cracker crumbs. This was my second favorite flavor. It tasted like smooth and mild cheesecake.

The brownie batter frozen custard was my favorite flavor. I would have gladly eaten it plain but the addition of sliced almonds made it even better. The chocolate flavor wasn’t too intense but it was enough to satisfy my chocolate cravings.

I know! I’ll pour my favorite espresso on the vanilla custard and make an affogato, a traditional Italian treat which I adore.
FIC Vermont Classic Frozen Custard is now available in their scoop shops around town as well as in Lulubelle in Power Plant and Makati Med.
