I have recently watched about Chili "Sili" Ice Cream in one of the television morning shows.
I must admit it got me really curious. Just imagine chili for dessert! However, the restaurant selling it is in Tagaytay and I don't want to travel that far just for ice cream now do I?
My hubby and I were in for a treat, when we visited the last Travel Expo ~ lo and behold, beside Bicol's exhibit is an ice cream cart selling Chili Ice Cream.
They are doing business under "1st Colonial". 1st Colonial is a homegrown creamery offering exotic ice cream. Their main factory is located in Daraga Albay, but recently they have been franchising their product nationwide.
The handsome man tending the ice cream cart is my husband. He was just too excited seeing chili ice cream up close.
Cost is P50/cup. They have chili (their best seller), pili nut, roasted rice, moringa, coffee, calamansi, cucumber, taro, cacao, ginger and sweet potato ice cream variants.
My husband got chili flavored ice cream, while sissy me ordered pili-nut.
- The ice cream texture is really creamy for both ice cream flavors.
- The pili nut was mildly sweetened with the perfect amount of nuttiness.
- The chili ice cream, came in 3 levels of chilliness, my husband bought the 2nd level. I personally don't like chili food, but I liked the tickling hot kick at the end of each scoop.
I love the authenticity of the flavor and would love to try the other flavors cucumber and sweet potato.
1st Colonial is open for franchising.
