When you visit the Philippines, especially in the summer, don't forget to try this sweet treat. It's called Halo Halo ( It literally means Mix mix) It's a cold treat with shaved ice ,beans, garbanzos, corn, kaong, nata de coco, sometimes topped with leche flan, ube (yam), and milk. The ice cream is an extra. This Halo Halo featured here is from Icebergs Restaurant.

Tastes delicious too. I've tried it lots of times since I was a kid. Perfect for the summer season.

@YannaNeko I am super glad you love it. I can't imagine you not liking it to be honest. I could not eat cold beans and corn with yam in it. Wow.. I thought you were going to say ice cream like peach or mango. lol.

@sharon6345 well the combination doesn't taste bad at all. But the violet thing from the picture really does look like ice cream and it might be. Like ube flavored. Though traditional halo halo doesn't have ice cream but sweetened yams.

I've tasted one of the best original versions in a place called Digman in Bacoor Cavite Philippines way back in the late 70's and it costs only one peso back the when i was in high school, we ate them inside straw huts or kubo and we sat on long wooden benches, , now Digman is famous in the Philippines if not worldwide when it comes to halo halo

Yes, Digman is one of the best tasting halo halo. I remember eating that in the early 80s when we were at the food court in SM. @louievill

Halo halo is one of my favorite desserts here in my country. When i was younger i used to be able to finish one big serving thats usually served in a big bowl but now 'm barely able to finish half. My throat just gives up and i get terrible headaches.
