Hi bloggie friends! Yes, I'm still here. :) I miss you ladies. Anyway, I got to try CBTL's not so latest offering, Frozen Swirl. They entered the fro-yo scene and came up with their own version of it. There are two base flavors to choose from... The Original and Classic Vanilla. From the Original you can choose from Lemoncello, Berry'd Treasure, Pomegranate and Banana Caramel flavors. While you can either have Matcha Green Tea, Affogato and Caramel Affogato flavor with Classic Vanilla. But they have a Mystery flavor too! You need to say the code first to your barista before you can avail it. Just say "Awesome" and you can get Hazelnut flavored yogurt. How cool is that right? And that's the flavor I tried on Trinoma weeks ago just when they started to offer it in that branch.
Here's our scene:
Me: Which is better Hazelnut or Caramel Affogato?
Barista: They're both good but I'll go for Hazelnut.
Me: Alright. I'll have the Hazelnut.
Barista: Sorry Mam, you can't avail it unless you say the code.
Me: Okay. Awesome.
And we both laughed. Haha.
Honestly, I'm shy to say I want an Awesome please though I know that's the way it should be when you want it. Is it just me? :) I even asked him why they have to do that and what's so special with their Hazelnut flavor. Of course, we all know the answer.
It's my first time to try it and IMHO, I don't dig their Hazelnut flavor. Even if they claim it's that awesomely good! One big reason: I don't want hazelnut. It tasted like a yogurt with a peanut buttery taste-like syrup. Very nutty flavor indeed. Aaack I don't want nuts on my dessert. Haha. I know silly me for ordering it but they got me with their
marketing/mystery flavor startegy. Also, it's called Frozen Swirl but where's the swirl part on my order? The one I had looked like a melted yogurt swirl. Is it really like this? But don't get me wrong here. My man loved it. I ended up giving it to him together with his order of Vanilla Ceylon Iced Tea.
And now great news... CBTL is having another Open House for their Frozen Swirl on Sunday. Yes, it's free. Visit their Trinoma, ATC and Rockwell branch from 10 AM - 12 NN. I'm not sure if I can make it but I'll definitely try Caramel Affogato this time. See you!
