Before anything, we want to say congratulations for surviving another long and busy week! That said, you deserve to treat yourself this weekend and for this episode of In Case You Missed It, your sweet tooth is in for a ride. Indeed, there’s always room for dessert, so we also made room for three new saccharine fares on our page. So why don’t you help yourself to some milkshake or a cookie after a long day of work? After all, ‘stressed’ spelled backwards is ‘desserts’.

1. The Mess Hall adds a new player on their team

These cookies were meant to be in your tummy

Believe us when we say that their cookies are way bigger than the palm of your hand. Yes, you read that right. Their enormous cookies are large enough to feed two people. But we doubt you’d like to share yours when you hear they’ve got an exciting new flavor on the menu. Their mouthwatering South Cotabato Dark Chocolate cookie (Php 120) is chocolate goodness inside out, as it is made from 60% dark chocolate. If you haven’t had a go of it yet, give your taste buds a treat and take a bite of this new creation from The Mess Hall.

The Mess Hall is located at The Moplex, 2316 Karrivin Plaza, Pasong Tamo Extension, Makati City

2. Catch these limited CBTL flavors before they’re gone

The matcha craze is far from over

The matcha craze is far from over. For a limited time only, Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf is serving three new matcha drinks nationwide. The lovely trio consists of an Iced Matcha Macchiato, an Ice Blended Matcha Affogato, and a Matcha Raspberry Latte. For those who are craving for the classic coffee and matcha combination, the first two are for you. But if you’re an adventurous soul looking for an unusual pairing, the latter is sure to satisfy your cravings. Matcha lovers, this offer is one you definitely shouldn’t miss!

CBTL has various branches around the Philippines

3. You can now enjoy Carmen’s Best at Power Plant Mall

Carmen’s Ice Cream finally has a physical ice cream parlor

This local ice cream brand has always been known for their enticing flavors like Birthday Cake, Cereal Milk, He’s Not Worth It, and Vietnamese Coffee, among many others. Their ice cream has always been available at mall kiosks, but at long last, they’ve finally opened up shop with their first ice cream parlor at Power Plant Mall. Here, you can grab a single serve cup of your favortite CB flavors for only Php 150. Apart from their ice cream, they also added new treats like milkshakes and affogato- the perfect additions to combat Manila’s crazy weather!
