(SPOT.ph) Sure, you’ve had strawberries with cream or strawberries with chocolate—but it pays to think out of the box, and this new treat by Sebastian’s Ice Cream gives you a new way to enjoy the berries. Dubbed the Strawberry Heston Ice Cream (P135/scoop, P405/pint), it consists of a tart, fruity strawberry sorbet made with real fruit, swirled with a spiced nutmeg- and cinnamon-spiked ice cream, and garnished with candied walnuts. It’s available for takeout from Sebastian’s The Podium branch, but you can also order for delivery by sending a text or Viber message to 0977-715-1378. (As of writing, they don’t have the pints in stock yet, but you can preorder them now and get them in a few days’ time.)
This special flavor is inspired by Baguio’s Forest House, which used to serve a dessert of strawberries in spiced cream called Strawberry a la Heston. Sadly, Forest House recently announced it was permanently closing down. “Our head sorbetero made it a ritual to always have [the Strawberry a la Heston] dessert when he visited Baguio City,” Sebastian’s writes in a social media post. “Forest House may be gone, but their creation lives on in this very special ice cream.” True enough, this scoop gives you the flavors of Forest House’s signature dessert, as it features an all-comforting combo of strawberries and cream with an extra dimension from the spices, and a welcome crunch from the walnuts.
