Best of the Philippines Collection: Coffee Mangosteen

Yet another addition to Magnolia's famous line of ice cream flavors.  Presenting Coffee Mangosteen.

Creamy coffee ice cream with bits of Davao mangosteen.  Interesting right?  But is it good?

It was OK, primarily because of the delicious coffee flavor of the ice cream.  There's a good marriage between the slightly bitter, deep coffee taste and the sweetness of the whole dessert.  What we could barely sense was the mangosteen.  We didn't know what its contribution was, taste wise.  Come to think of it, mangosteen has a subtle flavor...

Try it and judge for yourself.

  1. This is not a new flavor. Magnolia had this when I was growing up in the 70's. I have yet to taste the revival but the old one was one of the best ice cream flavor imho.
