Sebastian's Limited Edition Valentine's Ice Cream 2015

Matinong Boyfriend (sensible boyfriend), Matinong Girlfriend (sensible girlfriend), Closure, and Unfinished issues, no I am not talking about anyone’s love life but I am referring to the limited edition Valentine’s flavors of Sebestian’s Ice Cream. They offer free taste in small wooden spoons to help you decide which flavor to purchase. This is what I got from the ice cream sampling.

Out of curiosity, I tried the “Unresolved Issues”, which is mainly ampalaya (bitter gourd) sorbet with candied ampalaya. At first I tasted the coldness of the sorbet, then a little bitterness, ooh here comes the ampalaya. Yep, it was bitter. Then a final wave of bitterness echoed in my throat. It was definitely bitter. It was kind of cool how they were able to capture and execute the bitterness in a sorbet.

“Closure” is a Chrysanthemum ice cream with vanilla and hints of orange. This one is sweeter but not too sweet, perhaps more relaxing. Not really sure what chrysanthemum tastes like but there was orange and vanilla in there.

I also tried the “Matinong Girlfriend”. It is made of potato chip ice cream with potato chips covered in white chocolate. It did taste like a bag of cheddar/sour cream chips – only this one was in ice cream form.

The “Matinong Boyfriend” is composed of passion fruit sansrival ice cream with toasted macadamia nuts. It had some sour-sweet passion fruit sorbet (the bright yellow parts) which balances well with the ice cream (cream colored parts). The ice cream itself has a buttery taste and is not really that sweet. Its creamy texture mixes well with the icy passion fruit sorbet and toasted macadamia nuts.

This is what I eventually ordered. These are limited flavors and available only on Valentine’s weekend (Feb 13-15, 2015).
