Krispy Kreme Colors of Summer are Here

Summer is the time for colors. Imagine the clear blue sky. The yellow sun. Blue waters. Very timely also for colorful doughnuts cause it's after all, a colorful summer!


Colorful, aren't they? Don't just marvel at the colors. Go ahead, eat it. They're great! They are not too sweet as they look so go ahead.

The Krispy Kreme Colors of Summer doughnuts come in three variants:

  • Raspberry - a ring doughnut dipped in raspberry-flavored vanilla icing with Christmas-red, baker's rose and burgundy wine color swirls.
  • Blueberry - dipped in blueberry vanilla icing with violet, sky-blue and Christmas-red colorful swirls.
  • Lemon - dipped in lemon-flavored vanilla icing with leaf-green, lemon-yellow as well as sky-blue swirls.
These doughnuts are available at 45 pesos a piece until May 4 only.

Match them with the following Cake Chillers for either P140 for the medium-size and P150 for the large size Chiller.
  • Black Forest
  • Blueberry Cheesecake
  • Tiramisu
Sounds familiar, right? Because the inspiration behind these chillers are the cakes you find in coffee shops.

Grab a bite and give some to me okay?

Carla's Halo-halo in Talisay

We just had an outing in Talisay and on our way home, a friend of ours let us in a secret. According to her, she had a favorite halo-halo hangout nearby from her teenage years. And then she invited us to drop by this halo-halo haven known as Carla's halo-halo.

The halo-halo I think is just PHP50 and boy it was worth it. It was interesting to find strips or scrapings of what appeared to be jelly or gulaman instead of pearls or beads. The ingredients were in sizes that make you appreciate the halo halo's taste more. Not too sweet and it has mango and buko bits. The ice is fine and no clumps are found. On top is the ice cream. I loved it.

They also accept short orders of various pancit like bihon and at night they have live band performances. As I write this piece, they are also showing the Pacquiao vs. Bradley fight at Php 100 with choices of various food and/or drinks for free.

It's nice to know that there's another Cebuano halo-halo worth promoting found outside Cebu City.
