Ever being attracted to heaps of toppings that are displayed in a shop and then found out that if you want that it will cost you additional cost?

Not in Floa Creamery! Featuring their own homemade ice cream and waffle-shaped pudding to fool us into thinking we eat carbohydrates when actually it’s simpler sugar and fat. And if you don’t want the pudding, you can also request it to be an ice cream cone. We choose the pudding!

I order vanilla ice cream with chocolate pudding. The ice cream is delicious! Not overly sweet and not too creamy but still pleasant to the tongue, this homemade ice cream steals my heart at the first bite. The awesomeness fade the more bite we take, but first impression last forever right?
The taste come from the pudding though, the sweetness too. The pudding taste ordinary, like one of the instant pudding sold at minimarkets. But it doesn’t stop there!

We can ‘decorate’ the basic products with the toppings they provided. Grounded nuts, grounded Oreo, chocolate chips, chocolate sprinkles, rainbow sprinkles, rainbow ball, fruit loops, and pink crispy ball! They also have chocolate and vanilla sauce. It’s all so colourful and make our ice cream looks cuter we could add more toppings than we should! I pick nuts, grounded oreo, fruit loops and chocolate sauce.

Here is the final version! It’s more to the visual than taste, but having crispy toppings beside ice cream is very nice indeed.

Oh, I for

So, the final thought?

Piscok

Price : Rp 500 – Rp 1.000 each
Ingredients : banana, flour, chocolate, sugar, and (maybe) egg
Taste : Sweet suitable for afternoon snack with coffee

Piscok, an abbreviations of pisang-coklat, roughly translate into “Chocolate Banana”. But Piscok is deep fried banana and melted chocolate wrapped in lumpia skin like dough, different from the choco banana usually found in Japan or America where a banana is freeze-dried and then dipped into chocolate.

The melted chocolate usually caramelised, soaking through the skin, making it crispier. The banana gone soft from the frying process, enveloped by melted chocolate. Mm… Perfect! 👌
I imagine this will be good eaten with cheese or ice cream.

Lekker

Ingredients : Eggs, flour, sugar, and the toppings
Taste : Sweet
Price : The one found in front of elementary school is usually Rp 500 each, but the one I bought it from, and the modern twist one can range from Rp 2.000 – 6.000 each (cause the toppings are expensive)

I am pretty sure it is originally a Dutch snack, or maybe an Indonesian snack that are formed during the era Netherland invaded this country, judging from the name, Lekker.

Telur Gulung

Price : Usually Rp 500/stick, but can range until Rp 2.000/stick (like the place I usually bought it)
Ingredients : Eggs, mostly.
Taste : like a very dry but fluffy scramble egg. Minus the sauce.

I used to go “Tsk… tsk…” on people who have no choices but to purchase the expensive version of this snacks. I mean, this snacks should cost really low considering the ingredients that are used to make this : eggs, sometimes fish cake, and oil. Lots of oil.

But now, yeah, I realized that this snacks is very hard to come across these days, and even I have to put up with the Rp 2.000/sticks cost. And I put up with it because it’s addictive. Oh, unhealthy fried foods, why are you so tasty?WhatsApp-Image-20160523 (3)

Getuk Lindri

Getuk, or the full name Getuk Lindri, is my most favorite traditional snack. It’s tasty, filling, healthy, not overly-sweet, and cheap. Very cheap for all we could get from it.

I get hooked when one day when my father bring me a very moist one. It taste so soft, but chewy and filling. The shredded coconut give a salty taste, complimenting the subtle sweetness  of the Getuk itself. And the shape is unique too! It’s like layers of tiny cylinders. My favorite method of eating it is separating the cylinders one by one or a bunch by a bunch.
