Despite the storm that hit our country last weekend, last Saturday, Manila was enjoying a fair weather. During the afternoon it became pretty hot so I decided to cool down with Koolstix Barquillos en Sorbetes.

I ordered Dark Chocolate Barquillos with Chocolate ice cream and chocolate drizzle. I wanted coffee flavored ice cream so it won't be too much chocolate but it wasn't available.

This dessert still tasted good. I love it. I enjoyed eating it while doing my window shopping. smile

ice cream on stick? try kool stix :)
Smile 2013-09-12

Tired of boring ice cream? Try ice cream on stick! Literally an ice cream inside a barquillos. Isn’t fun?!tongue

Affordable kool stix at Php 25.00 only caught my attention at Greenhills Shopping Center. So we tried vanilla and chocolate flavors and added a few peso for springkles…loltongue

The taste is really fun, because for every bite of barquillos you will taste the ice cream! smile

I definitely salute the makers of kool stix! Their products are tasty and affordable for Filipinos. smile

I am pretty sure this business will last and even recruit new franchise owners!smiletonguesmile

It's New but I like the Old one Better
Just OK 2012-10-25
Koolstix Barquillos en Sorbetes has limited branches. I think the only branch that I know is located here in Greenhills which is somewhat far from my place. I always go here to buy one because I know it would take quite some time before I get to try it again.

I was craving for Cappuccino on a Dark Barquillos but unfortunately, they available flavors were chocolate and cookies n' cream. I picked the latter.

 Cookies n' Cream

It tasted good but I still like the cappuccino more than their cookies n' cream. See you next time Koolstix. tongue

Another innovation from Koolstix
Just OK 2012-10-24
My friend and I don't go to Greenhills that often. So whenever we get a chance, we always drop by at Koolstix Barquillos en Sorbetes since there is no other branch near to our place.

   Cookies n' Cream

They have a new and hip facade. Aside from that, they also have a new flavor....Cookies n' Cream. Well, honestly, I didn't feel it was cookies n' cream. It's just like an ordinary ice cream with chocolate syrup. But I still enjoyed it because the barquillos was yummy. smile

New Flavor
Smile 2012-04-24
Milk shakes, fruit shakes, sodas, ice based desserts, and ice cream are becoming popular because of the weather. Even if the establishment that you are in is fully air-conditioned, somehow it is not enough.

 Koolstix Barquillos en Sorbetes

It's a good thing that Koolstix Barquillos en Sorbetes is located in the middle of Greenhills' Bazaar therefore you can not definitely miss it.

Now, Koolstix has a new flavor that you'll love that is very Filipino. Their new flavor is Chocnut. A Filipino type of chocolate wherein chocolate and peanut were combined.

   Chocnut

I got excited because I know that the chocnut ice cream flavor will definitely tastes good with their dark chocolate barquillos.

I was right. The two hit it off. I give Five spoons.

Chocolate and Coffee
Smile 2012-03-20
Since the weather is getting hotter than ever, famous food are those refreshing like Fruit Shakes, Halo-Halo and the likes, and Ice Cream.

 Koolstix Barquillos en Sorbetes

I must say that Koolstix Barquillos en Sorbetes' location is quite strategic because it is in the middle of the bazaar or stalls. So when you get tired, you don't need to go to a different place to eat or drink because they are right next to the stalls.

This was the first time that I saw that the line was long. It was like 5 to 10 minutes before I was served. I wasn't in a hurry though but the people I'm with in line were annoying. They were complaining about the long line. I pity the server because she's alone.

   Cappuccino on Dark Chocolate

I ordered Cappuccino in Dark Chocolate Barquillos with Chocolate Drizzle (P25). It was still good. The ice cream may not be creamy or milk as compared to other ice cream brand but I loved how it blended well with the Dark Chocolate Barquillos. This is such a great and unique product. Five spoons!

Barquillos en Sorbetes
Smile 2011-12-31
My friends and I went to Greenhills to have our last minute Christmas shopping. After shopping, we saw this small stand which is Barquillos en ice cream. I heard this before and good thing I got a chance to try this now. They have 2 flavors which are chocolate and vanilla. Instead of ordinary ice cream cone, this one is using barquillos. It’s very affordable for only 25 pesos. I really enjoyed eating this. It’s perfect for the hot weather.

new product
Smile 2011-12-12
It was a great experience trying Koolstix Barquillos en Sorbetes located in Virra Mall Greenhills Shopping Center, San Juan. Koolstix is located on the ground floor of the shopping mall. It was a double fun the last time I went there. I found out that koolstix had a new product. I ordered dark cappucino which costs me around 25.00 pesos. Originally, they only serve plain chocolate and plain cappucino. I was happy to find out their new product because I do love dark chocolates. It was an amazing experience!

Cappuccino Flavor
Smile 2011-12-05
Once again it's Holiday Season and Christmas is fast approaching. This is the time for shopping, and going to Bazaars despite being crowded and traffic.

I see to it that I always go to shopping centers as early as I possibly can to avoid traffic. And I make sure that I have a heavy breakfast before going there. smile

After two hours of shopping, I wanted to lunch but I am afraid that once we are done having our lunch, the crowd will multiply. It was really a wise decision to set-up food stalls in the middle of the bazaar so we can eat while shopping. smile

 Ice Cream Flavors

I was happy to see that Koolstix Barquillos en Sorbetes has a new flavor. Apart from having a new barquillos flavor, they also added a new ice cream flavor which is Cappuccino.

   Cappuccino Flavor

I ordered Dark Chocolate Barquillos with Cappuccino Ice cream for the similar price of P25. It was delicious because now you get to have chocolate drizzle without extra charge. Five spoons for this genius snack.

I hope that one day they would add Dark Chocolate Ice cream flavor. I think this will really taste better with their Classic Barquillos. tongue

Ice Cream Stick
Smile 2011-10-24
My friend and I went shopping one weekend. While strolling, she told me that her younger brother wants to put up a business that's unique. She said that her brother wants to put up a food stall that offers ice cream and barquillos. I told her that when we were younger, my parents used to bring us to an ice cream parlor where we usually put barquillos on top of our ice cream or halo-halo therefore it wasn't that original anymore. She said that what her brother wants is the barquillos will stand as the cone and on top of the stick he will put the ice cream and then we came across to Koolstix Barquillos en Sorbetes. smile

 Ice Cream Machine

We immediately called her brother to inform him that his idea was already put into business so it seems that he needs to come up with a new one. Since we were there, might as well try and experience it. I mean it was like P20 or P25 per order.

 Koolstix New Product

We tried their new product which is the Dark Chocolate Barquillos (P25). Instead of using the original barquillos, they have created a dark chocolate flavored barquillos.

They have two types of ice cream flavors, vanilla and chocolate. Since my barquillos is alreardy chocolate flavored, I chose vanilla with candy sprinkle. smile

   Dark Chocolate Barquillos

It was delicious. The stick did taste dark chocolate. And I have noticed that their barquillos is a little bit thicker compared to the ones that I have tried in the province. It doesn't easily crush when you bite on it.

The vanilla ice cream tasted good as well. It's creamy. I enjoyed it. Five spoons for this new ice cream/barquillos innovation. tongue

Smile 2011-10-20
I just finished looking for something to give on my LOLA AZON’S birthday when I went to Koolstix Barquillos en Sorbetes located in Ground Floor Virra Mall Greenhills Shopping Center, San Juan City. Just like the first time that I have tried it, it was still an invigorating experience. Last time I went there, I tried their Chocolate flavour. This time, I have tried their vanilla flavour. It was also good 

Damage to the budget is only 10.00 to 20.00 person. It is definitely pocket-friendly.

WEIRD ICE CREAM
Smile 2011-09-05
While strolling around the ‘tianggian’, and enjoying buying some stuffs in every booth in greenhills, I came across Koolstix Barquillos en Sorbetes, specifically located in G/F Virra Mall Greenhills Shopping Center, San Juan. I was amazed to see one customer buying some sort of a weird ice cream- and basically, we were curious about it- and so, we tried.

For 25 pesos, you can experience this amazing ice cream- with a dark chocolate cone. I and my sister enjoyed it a lot. Really really enjoyed it’s weird look.

Barquillos & Sorbetes!
Just OK 2011-05-31
Who thought of this?

At first, it was brilliant. I love barquillos, and I love ice cream (who doesn't???).

So, when a barquillos is used as a 'cone', I'm in Ice Cream heaven. Hahaha!

I was sad though, after a few minutes of delightful licking and slurping, I was already in worrying stage. I was worried that I might take a bite too big that the whole thing might just fall off.

I do not think it is ideal to serve, much more sell, this ice cream in greenhills, where the it is always crowded. I wouldn't want someone's barquillos ice cream on my shirt when I bump him.

The ice cream was nothing unusual, it was just the same soft-serve ice cream taste.

I guess the 'barquillos cone' enticed the shoppingeros to try it out. Just for the sake of trying.
