Summertime again! As the hot weather commenced, the "summer foods" started to be sold in the neighborhood. Sorbetes (Filipino ice-cream) are sold year-round but they are more in demand during this time of the year. Halo-halo (shaved ice with milk and different boiled beans and fruits) is another popular snack/dessert during summer. And... the different flavored ice candy! (Ice candy is a mixture of water, fruit puree or flavoring and milk in frozen in small plastic bags.) Lately, we made some mango flavored ice candy and sold it in the neighborhood. It's a blockbuster snack! I thought only children will love it but even adults enjoy having one or two. Come on guys. Share your ice candy or other summer snack moments with a so others will take a break and get one too.
