Black Meets Gold: What's New At The Latest Blk 513 Branch In Glorietta 1

Besides it’s a ubiquitous sweet-tangy healthful treat, frozen yogurt has won the hearts of many for a lot of reasons. For one it helps boost your immune systems especially when it comes to combating gastrointestinal problems. It is also an excellent source of calcium, not only to provide help for healthy and strong bones but also to help keep off weight and improve premenstrual mood (what a great way to eat froyo as an excuse to PMS-related binge-ing hahaha!) A lot of frozen yogurt carry exotic and unique flavors as well. Name it, green tea, taro, coconut, and more. And lastly you can build your own frozen yogurt combos!

Frozen yogurt is a frozen dessert made with yogurt and sometimes other dairy products including non-dairy products. It is usually more tart than ice cream, as well as lower in fat (due to the use of milk instead of cream). It is different from ice milk (more recently termed low-fat or light ice cream) and conventional soft serve. Frozen yogurt has come to be used much like ice cream, and is served in a wide variety of flavors and styles. Many sellers also offer sugar-free varieties.

One of the leading providers of delicious frozen yogurt in the Philippines is BLK 513. What’s unique though about BLK is their Dark Skim Frozen Yogurt which is the country's first activated-charcoal enhanced frozen yogurt. This flavor is made with Greek yogurt and is loaded with activated charcoal. Remember when activated charcoal froyos went viral in the US and people started lining for them. It is a Goth fan dream come true! And thanks to BLK 513 we finally got to try it for ourselves as well.

Being a medical professional, I am very familiar with activated charcoal as this is used especially in the ER to treat poisonings and overdoses following oral ingestion. Nowadays it is believed that it helps in detoxification. In proper amount, activated charcoal is thought to trap toxins and chemicals in the body, flushing them out so the body doesn't reabsorb them. Yogurt and activated charcoal might provide us with a healthy gastrointestinal flora.

Last Saturday, BLK 513 held its grand opening of its 9th and one of the biggest store in Glorietta 1. But this branch isn’t just like the any other BLK branch. There’s something special about this branch. One word: Gold! Guests got to meet and eat the new gold standard of sauces for frozen yogurts. BLK 513 introduced Valrhona Gold Milk. It is the melted Valrhona Blonde Dulcey - a gloriously buttery, salt-kissed chocolate that you'll wish you can drink it straight from the fountain.

With my cup, I chose a variety of nuts, fresh mango bits, fresh strawberry bits with my dark skim yogurt and of course I tried the Valrhona Gold Milk. I love that the sauce hardens which gives the entire treat full of flavors and textures. I love it! We also got to try them in flavored cones: strawberry, matcha and dark chocolate. I love the combination of strawberry flavored cone with strawberry cheesecake sauce and granola bits. The matcha flavor is also good as it wasn’t that strong. The dark chocolate flavor was pronounced and equally good as the other two.

I love the regular ice cream, but I also love yogurt and frozen yogurt is a pick-me-upper. Every time I eat it puts a smile on my face. Froyo is a cheery, I mean, hello, who couldn’t use a little happy? Definitely getting my fix regularly at BLK 513.
