Filipino Food Pick: Ice Candy
Looking for something to beat the summer heat? Want something ice cold and tasty on the tongue? There’s no snack more well known during the Philippine summertime than the cool and delicious taste of the age old favorite, Ice Candy.
Ice candy is basically any mixed drink juice or concoction poured into a narrow and clear plastic bag and then left to harden in the freezer for several days. Sometimes condensed milk is used and small fruit cubes (usually ripe yellow mangoes) are embedded into the mix to make for a deliciously refreshing and filling afternoon snack when the sun is at its highest peak.
Both young and old can enjoy this delicious snack as the shape and the form allow for a variety of ways to consume the product. It’s the ultimate sunny day snack!
