Chill-Out Cheat Sheet: Where To Get The Best Ice-Cold Treats At SM

There’s nothing quite like downing an ice-cold drink on a particularly hot day or indulging in a sweet, frozen dessert after a hot meal (or for a relaxing merienda). As tropical dwellers, us Filipinos take our pampalamig seriously, as evidenced by the wide array of chilled and frozen treats in our local cuisine—from the famous halo-halo to endless variants of the Pinoy ice cream.

At SM Supermalls, there’s also no shortage of insta-refreshers to cater to every taste or whim, whether you’re craving for a unique thirst-quencher or fancy a subzero dessert. Check out our cheat sheet on where to get your fill of yummy ice-cold treats:

BLK 513 

Loco over froyo? Get your fill in a handy to-go box: BLK 513’s Frozen Yogurt Picnic Box includes two 180ml petite size cups of froyo with your choice of crunch, fruit, and sauce in separate cups. For a more indulgent treat (and if you don’t mind a hot-meets-cold experience), opt for their Molten Lava edition, which includes a molten lava batter that you can just pop in the microwave before topping with yogurt.
