Halo-halo is a delicious cold dessert for a hot summer day. In the Philippines, you can find halo-halo stands on almost every street!
Halo-halo, a Filipino ice dessert, consists of different toppings like jackfruit, sweet beans, corn, jellies, banana, purple yam, or leche flan, mixed in with shaved ice, condensed milk and ube (purple yam) ice cream. The ube ice cream is usually what gives it that distinct purple look.

I decided to try Snoice the other day to satisfy my craving for halo-halo and I was not disappointed!
They have the original halo-halo option with set toppings or you can do the custom option and choose up to 6 of your preferred toppings.
I went for the custom because I definitely have my favorite toppings I can’t go without in halo-halo! Bananas, leche flan, and jellies are my must-have toppings for any halo-halo!
Snoice halo-halo comes in a to-go cup that makes it easy to eat in the shop at one of their tables, or take it on the road.
