Scooptopia in key Phoenix, az

Scooptopia may be the most recent ice cream retail outlet in core Phoenix arizona, but it's providing more than simply dark chocolate and vanilla. Operator Ginalyn Halum wished to share a flavor from her memories of being raised within the Philippines, exactly where she existed well before transferring to Phoenix in 2002.

That's why she's enthusiastic to create and assist halo-halo, a colourful shaved ice cubes wilderness that's preferred inside the Philippines but difficult to acquire in central Phoenix az.

For $6.50, you can purchase a large glass of halo-halo with evaporated milk products applyed above it. It is possible to modify your order, which usually comes layered with:

  • Coconut jelly.
  • Sweetened garbanzo beans.
  • Reddish colored and white-colored legumes.
  • Shaved ice.
  • Green jelly.
  • Purple yam.
  • Jackfruit.
  • Red and natural palm fruits.
  • Boko pandan — pandan-flavoured almond jelly.
  • Ube (purple yam) ice cream.
  • Flan.

Halo-halo is Tagalog for "merged" and Halum insists the best way to take in halo-halo is to blend the layers together.

Halum, who life in Laveen along with her family, explained the halo-halo from her childhood in Pampanga wasn't as decadent-hunting as the halo-halo she will serve or recognizes in dining places now.

"I'm introducing it due to the fact maybe only Filipinos know it," Halum explained. "It's relaxing with many different variety. The treat is very well-liked in your land. I believe men and women can try out something diverse."
