The Frap Bar
I’m not a big fan of warm/hot drinks. When Starbucks became a house name here in the Philippines, I wasn’t sold on their products. I’m not a coffee drinker, nor do I conform to what’s “in”. We rarely go there, and if we do, I would always order a frap. We live in a tropical country where it’s always warm and I would rather enjoy a cold beverage. Although there are the rare occasions where I would buy a tall order of their signature warm chocolate. Moving on…
The Frap Bar is a small kiosk in SM Southmall, situated near Pizza Hut and in front of the elevator. I’ve passed by it over a dozen times and have always been tempted to try their products. One day, I gave in. It was hard to make a decision as to what flavor I was going to get. About three of them made my mouth water, but I finally chose White Choco Oreo.
The frap looked creamy as it was being poured from the blender to the cup, and it was, although it could have been creamier. I also expected more whipped cream. I couldn’t help but compare the serving from the picture, but it turned out to be just enough for the whole thing. It had cookie bits, the cookies were blended with it, and most of it rested at the bottom of the cup.
I initially wanted to try Creme Brulee, but it was not available. I miss this flavor because Zagu no longer serves it. The other flavor I wanted to try was Butterscotch and Hazelnut. Maybe I’ll try those next time.
Value for money? Well, it’s good enough for Php95. I will definitely try it again next time I’m in SM Southmall.
