Figaro Date with My Family

Last September, Figaro had a contest wherein you'd share your favorite Figaro drink. Thanks to my friend Mike, I was able to join the promo in time. I wrote about their Raspberry Mint Latte!

And then, after a few days, my friend texted me that I won so I immediately checked my Facebook account! (Thanks so much, Mike! I owe this all to you! :D)

My dad claimed the GCs for me and this served as Part 2 of my sister's birthday celebration. After having lunch at Luk Foo, we bought some groceries at Puregold and went straight to Figaro in Tomas Morato.

Figaro's Christmas merchandise are on display.

Cakes and pastries. Yum! :>

Check out the Christmas-themed baked goodies!

Red Velvet Cake (P129.00)

I ordered Red Velvet Cake since it looked very pretty (and I wonder what Red Velvet flavor actually is). I still could not figure it out, so I had to google it when I went home. It's vanilla or chocolate pala. LOL. Figaro's Red Velvet Cake looked very pretty, but it was a bit dry and it crumbled easily.

Peppermint Brownie (P59.00)

I'm a sucker for anything minty, so this was a must-try. Seeing the peppermint brownie alone made me think that it was Christmas already! I was expecting the white mint topping of the brownie to be soft, but it was hard like candy. Maybe it ref display was too cold. However, I like the brownie part, it's dense and chewy. If you love peppermint, try this and have a taste on Christmas.

Cafe Mocha (P105.00)

Mocha Frost (P135.00)

Vanilla Frost (P135.00)

Strawberry Milkshake Frost (P135.00)

This one is mine! I can't drink coffee so I chose a fruity drink instead. Strawberry Milkshake is a very creamy and milky drink, but I felt that there was too much cream and less strawberry in it.

Butterscotch Vanilla with Coffee Jelly (P155.00)

Banana Berry Frost Delight (P145.00)
Iced blended dessert drink inspired from banana split traditionally topped with vanilla ice cream, with drizzle of chocolate and strawberry syrups.

Thanks for the treat, Figaro! My family and I enjoyed our visit. :)
