Rita's: Expecting Italian Ice and Frozen Custard Happiness (V-Mall Greenhills)

May 23, 2016 Greenhills, San Juan, 1503 Metro Manila, Philippines

I've never tried an Italian Ice and Frozen Custard before so I was really excited to find out that Rita's opened here in the Philippines.

I've been dreaming about this moment for a very long time...

They have a screen with the flavors that are available for the day.

To add more to the complication, they also had many kinds of products.

Cups were displayed so we had an idea of the serving size.

As I glanced down to the chiller, I saw tubs filled with an assortment of colors and flavors.

Sugar-Free Cherry and Mango Italian Ice Large (125 php)
The Sugar-Free Cherry and Mango Italian Ice combination had a nice tanginess from the cherry and a mild peachy flavor from the mango.  Yes, I find foreign mangoes to be a bit more peachy than our sweet local Mangoes.  Trying the Italian Ice made me realize that I prefer the Asian shaved ice counterparts
 
orange frozen custard
Orange Frozen Custard (125 php)
I had so much expectations... the color seemed enticing... But, when I tried my Orange Frozen Custard, I did not like it.  It was too sweet and somehow it felt too artificial.
 
blendini
Mint Oreo + Chocolate + Whole Cherries Blendini (130 php)
The only order that brought me happiness is my Mint Oreo + Chocolate + Whole Cherries Blendini.  The mint oreo and chocolate worked wonderfullyAnd, the cherries made it even enjoyable.

Custard Cookie Sandwich (89 php)

The Custard Cookie Sandwich is the cheapest item on the menu.  But, I can't help but compare it to the Dairy Queen's DQ Sandwich which is way cheaper at 39 php.  In terms of price, taste and texture, I prefer Dairy Queens.   Too bad they are not partnered with Oreo anymore though because I love Oreo.

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
Too much expectations is what I got from Rita's.  Well, it's still worth a try.  At least, I have found my preference for their Blendini's.
