Wonder Treats Summer 2021 Edition: Peep Our Healthy Picks, Worth It Indulgences And Great Deals
From Magnum’s dairy-free vegan alternative to Grab’s summer deals, here’s a roundup of fun summer treats for you
We’re right in the middle of another summer in quarantine and we’re all looking for ways to stay healthy and keep our heads up despite the circumstances. The options are plenty, we just need to look in the right places and that’s exactly what this edition of Wonder Treats is for. We’re serving you a curated range of treats, from healthy picks to indulgences worth the weekend calories and pretty great deals. Peep them up ahead:
Run Rabbit Run x Merry Moo
Shaken then churned
For a summer delighter, indulge in the brand new summer collaboration between artisan ice cream brand, Merry Moo, and hole-in-the-wall bar, Run Rabbit Run. The Floppy Ears Cocktail Ice Cream is unlike any other, a balanced conception of flavors and fragrant notes blended with RRR’s signature, best-selling cocktail and Merry Moo’s trademark ice cream.
Magnum Dairy Free Almond
0% Dairy, 100% Pleasure
Could Magnum ice cream get any better? Yes, it can, and it did when the all-new Magnum Dairy Free Almond variant arrived in the Philippines.
It’s a great option for people who have adopted plant-based diets or simply take a more holistic approach to healthy living. Whoever said healthy is bland or boring have yet to take a bite of Magnum’s dairy-free vegan alternative. It delivers 100% pleasure with 0% dairy thanks to the vanilla ice confection made with pea protein, and the thick vegan Belgian chocolate cover topped with roasted almond pieces. And just in case you have any doubts, Magnum Dairy Free Almond is certified vegan by the Vegan Awareness Foundation. No tricks here, just good stuff.
Get the Magnum Dairy Free Almond for P85 in select groceries, supermarkets, convenience stores and e-commerce platforms nationwide.
A honeycomb center perfectly coated with chocolate
Earlier this year, our friends at Candy Corner brought back Violet Crumble to the Philippines. If you guys remember that honeycomb center and chocolate coating—or even if you never had the chance to know it—you’re in for a treat.
Violet Crumble is back as the classic, and also available in a dark chocolate variety. But more than that, Candy Corner is offering the candy with baking kits for those still on that baking-high. Upgrade your traditional brownies, cookies and slices to include this new surprise and wow everyone (and yourself) with that extra kick of sweetness.
The secret to good health right this way
“You achieve good health by taking care of yourself and keeping a balanced diet, giving your body the nutrients it needs and the love it deserves,” says Leni Olmedo, Country Manager of Amway Philippines. “A well-balanced plate has a lot of colors—lots of fruits and vegetables.” This, however, isn’t a common sight on many Filipino dining tables, be it because of preference or lack of access to fresh ingredients. Now more than ever, Amway is encouraging us Filipinos to make healthier choices by being more mindful of what we eat and introducing plant-based health supplements to help fill the gap in our diets. World, meet the next generation of Nutrilite™ Double X™ or NGDX. The food supplement contains sophora japonica, turmeric, rosemary, and a special blend of berries among other carefully selected fruits and vegetables. Packed with vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients, the latest is an upgrade from Amway’s previous flagship product.
So how is the new Nutrilite™ Double X™ better? For one, 90% of its botanical ingredients are sourced from Amway’s own organic farms, making each ingredient traceable down to the seed. The results are pure, safe and effective supplements that help boost your health.
NGDX is available in Amway Exclusive Shopper. Sign up for free to access NGDX among other essentials and get free shipping for orders P1,000 and above.
Yellow Cab’s New Pizza Flavors
Chicken on pizza? It just makes perfect sense
I’m all for making healthy choices, but I’m also about taking things in moderation. I can never say no to (also who can? I don’t know anyone) a box or slice of cheesy, meaty pizza? More so when Yellow Cab released two new pizza flavors just in time for their 20th anniversary.
The new flavors are classic favorites made better: meet the Charlie Chan® Pizza, inspired by the iconic pasta, and the Hot Chix Pizza! Charlie Chan still boasts the same juicy boneless chicken thigh fillets tossed in everyone’s favorite sweet and spicy sauce mixed with shiitake, sweet onions and crunchy peanuts. Meanwhile, Hot Chix features boneless chicken bites fried and then coated with Yellow Cab’s signature spicy sauce on a bed of cheesy pizza drizzled with tangy ranch dressing.
Both flavors are available in 9”, 12”, and 15” sizes, with prices starting at P349. So which one are you having? Order now because nothing lasts forever! These limited edition flavors are only available from April 17 to June 30, 2021 at all Yellow Cab stores.
