Freezer Burn is one ice cream heaven! It has some of the most unique ice cream flavors in the Metro. Mayo and Ketchup, Junk Food, Maple and Bacon? Take your pick! Aside from offering scoop/s of ice cream, they also have "composed desserts" that combine cold and hot elements - cold ice cream x hot food - living up to the name FREEZER BURN.

|Regular vs. Solo|
Launched early September, these three new flavors will leave the shelves mid November to give way to their Christmas Flavors. Ube, Tonka Beans and Coconut, each one had it's own charm.
The Good Shepherd: Baguio Ube with White Straciatella + Warm Cheese Muffins
The Ube flavored ice cream was mixed with white Straciatella and served with warm cheese muffins. If you're thinking Ube + Good Shepherd = Baguio famous purple pasalubong, then, you got it right! They use nothing but Good Shepherd's Purple Yam which is undeniably one of the best in the market. The result? A rich and thick ice cream with all the great flavors of the original locked in. It was rather sweet though and if you'll ask me, I still prefer the original, scooped out of the bottle.
Don't get me wrong, this ice cream will satisfy the ube lover in you, I just found it a little heavy in my palette. The cheese muffins were like those mini colorful "puto" that you usually get from Goldilocks but these were the leveled up version. Warm, soft and packed with cheesy goodness, I kinda wished these were available for take home lol
Goin' Bananas: Banana Leaf and Tonka Bean Ice Cream + Banana Tart Turon
This came in as my surprise favorite. I didn't have any idea of what Tonka Bean was until I searched Google. Found out that it's being used as a substitute for Vanilla. Not only that, I found out as well that when consumed in higher quantities, it can cause serious health problems thus it's use is being regulated in some countries. Interesting. Now, back to Freezer Burn's ice cream flavor, there was a certain lightness to it - a hint of banana plus this refreshing flavor that's probably coming from the Tonka Beans.
It delighted my taste buds and it felt like a breeze of fresh air under the summer sun! lol Seriously, it was that refreshing! This scoop was paired with equally good "Banana Tart Turon" which was more like a deconstructed turon. The turon wrapper was made into these little rectangles, deep fried, crisp, light and then topped with small banana slices that have been drizzled with caramelized sugar syrup. Everything went so well together!
What's Up Coconut: Burnt Coconut Husk Ice Cream + Calamansi Curd Ensaymada
I love anything coconut! It instantly gives me this summer pick-me upper feeling when gloomy days arise. The Burnt Coconut Husk Ice Cream had a subtle coconut flavor, some nutty notes and some texture from the toasted coconut strips that it was topped with. I loved this one too!
The Ensaymada was soft and warm but the calamansi curd was a little too sour and sweet for me. Not really a perfect match, I must say.
|Best Mint Straciatella Ice Cream turned into a milkshake!|
We definitely got some sugar rush from this visit but I'm not complaining at all. If you fancy premium ice cream and desserts, Freezer Burn is the right place for you. Grab a chair and indulge the sweet tooth in you! Kids will surely love this place too.
4 out of 5 Stars for Freezer Burn!
