As Valentine’s Day rounds the corner for all our lovesick friends to consume every product seemingly catered for couples this February, we’re reminded once again of how single we are (which isn’t a bad thing, mind you!). That said, our dear lonesomes haven’t been completely abandoned this love month, FYI.
Enter Sebastian’s Ice Cream, a dessert parlor providing good ‘ol humor for the singles via delectable new limited edition flavors every year. Having started the tradition back in 2014, their annual Valentine's Day Ice Cream Collection is perfectly packaged for all of us flying solo on the 14th, with four options to choose from, namely: Matinong Boyfriend, Matinong Girlfriend, Closure, and Unresolved Issues.
While the flavors are revamped yearly, the names stay the same. Find out their 2020 versions below!
This year, Sebastian's Matinong Boyfriend is a Dark Chocolate Orange Ice Cream mixed with an interesting concoction of fresh orange zest and a hint of rum, garnished with candied hazelnuts spiced with cinnamon.
If you fancy a Matinong Girlfriend better, Sebastian’s offers up one in the form of a Dark Beer Ice Cream made with Cerveza Negra. As per their official Facebook page, the flavor has “notes of toffee, caramel, and coffee” and also comes with “honey-roasted peanuts made in-house, coated in bittersweet chocolate.”
Closure this year, or lack thereof, not only comes in unread novel-length Facebook messages, but in Genmaicha Tea Ice Cream made with Japanese Green Tea leaves and popped roasted brown rice as well. “We infuse the Genmaicha in our ice cream base for 24 hours to create a soothing, rejuvenating Tea Ice Cream that soothes your spirit and delights your palate,” Sebastian’s official post reads.
Lastly, their Unresolved Issues, much like yours, remains the same from last year! An Ampalaya Sorbet garnished with candied Ampalaya bits, Sebastian’s describes this treat as a bitter melon sorbet that embodies being unable to move on.
All four flavors from Sebastian’s Valentine’s Day Ice Cream Collection will be available at all branches on February 1, 2020.
