Yups. There's such a thing as Halo Halo ice cream. Ok, before anything else, Halo Halo is a dessert/snack made up of crushed iced, milk, sugar, mixed fruits (beans, jello-o, nata de coco, bananas, uber, jackfruit, etc.) and with custard and ice cream on top. Now, Magnolia(?) came up with Halo Halo flavored ice cream. So ice cream replaced crush iced. So will you go with the traditional Halo Halo or the modified Halo Halo ice cream? I attached the photo of the original Halo Halo and use it as your guide. (i'm just curious if there's someone out there who'll choose the traditional when obviously, ice cream is better than crushed ice)

I have never heard of Halo Halo. But, I think I have a marketing concept just waiting to rock the Philippines: get ready get ready,wait for it...(drum roll please)NEW Humpy Dumpy Halo! Not sold in stores for obvious reasons. Buyer Beware. Not held responsible if it comes back from where it began. Also not responsible if it fries off your taste buds and the last thing your tongue can remember tasting was Humpy Dumpy. Come on Kiddies! Eat the new taste sensation that the ice cream man is afraid to sell. New Improved non-cat poo smelling HUMPY DUMPY HALO. Not to be confused with the Xbox game,Halo. All rights reserved.

I'm thinking of venturing into breakfast cereals. It would be great to use Humpy Dumpy because it's make of corn. How about Humpy Dumpy cornflakes for breakfast? What a way to start the day right? lol!

ill go for modified halo halo.... original halo halo was so hard to melt the ice unlike ice cream when you stir it... it melts easily... the ingredient that i dont like in halo halo is beans... or munggo like black ones...

Same here! I hate the beans, the beige colored beans. They're a bit hard for my taste and feels like it doesn't belong.

Halo-halo is okay, not really something I'd order for a dessert! But I'd go over for ice cream. Ice cream is way good alright. Wait, halo-halo does have ice cream too, but I just don't like some of the things mixed with the crushed ice. I like it plain milk, sugar, banana, jackfruit with jello and top it with yummy ice cream. Lol Ahh! I'm just weird, that sounds like liking all.. Lol Whatever, I like halo-halo, either ways! Just get rid off that nata thingy.. Lol

I like the traditional Halo Halo.. because it contains natural ingredients such as milk, sugar, crushed ice, nata de coco, jackfruit and many more.. sometimes, i put a scoop of ice cream to make it more flavorful.. yum yum!!! =)

original halo halo is so much better than ice-cream flavored halo halo. why? because the real halo halo can make you choose which ingredient to eat first, and which ones to leave out (i never got used to eating kaong). plus the original is more satisfying. after eating the ice cream flavored halo halo, after a few hours, you're hungry again.

I have only tested the traditional halo halo and like it very much. As it is only available in the Philipines I do not get to taste it here in my country, even if there is I think it is not the same as the one I find in Philipines. I have not tasted the modified version in halo halo ice cream, I think it must be much better than the traditional one which uses shaved iced.

That could be true but i guess it depends on an individual's preference. Some prefer the traditional because the fruits are fresh while some like the ice cream version because obviously, it's creamier.

After five responses, the traditional Halo Halo is still the unanimous choice.

I love original halo-halo a lot. I used to eat it in the Philippines all the time. The yummiest halo-halo I tasted was at Max. Original ingredients that melts in my mouth. Yummm.I made fruit salad here using halo-halo ingredients.lol;-) I just did not put ice since it is winter here and its too cold so I was happy with my fruit salad.;-)Halo-halo ice cream is a lot more expensive here but we do eat that from time to time since some of my friends buy that on special occasions.

I prefer to have halo-halo the original. To eat ice cream much better to eat this separate. I cannot taste better if it was a n ice cream halo-halo although it was almost the same in taste. The original one taste better, I feel I was at the barrio fiesta.

I like the tradition halo-halo with crushed ice and top with real ube and leche flan and with ice cream. Yummy!!! I dont like the halo-halo ice cream because I want to taste the real incredients of halo-halo not the substitute. I like it when I drink the milk when I'm almost done eating my halo-halo.

I noticed too that the fruits aren't as generous in Halo Halo ice cream compared to the traditional Halo Halo. Me, i eat half of the ice cream then mix the other half with the fruits and crushed ice.
