Red Mango Birthday

Red Mango Birthday-8 Red Mango Birthday-10

Red Mango Green Tea Frozen Yogurt (6 oz) (P120) with Kiwi and Strawberry Toppings (P30) 

Happy 4th Birthday, Aidan!

OAP is as old as Aidan. :) If some people like to create scrapbooks or a family photo album, we created the OAP Blog to document Aidan and Joshua's childhood adventures. 

Aidan was born on January 19, 2005. Time really goes by so fast, and my thanks go out to the OAP readers who have watched Aidan grow throughout these years.

To make his birthday special, we visited a number of places, including Manila's latest destination for frozen yogurt: Red Mango.

Lulubelle

Lulubelle-4 Lulubelle-9

Lulubelle has the best ambiance among all the Frozen Yogurt establishments we have visited to date. The hot pink & white ambiance with purple pink christmas tree accent draws you inside this little corner store at the 3/F of Rockwell Power Plant Mall. The Lulubelle logo resembles the cow version of Santa Butsiki of Ang Unang Baboy sa Langit. Lori has the scoop on why it is named Lulubelle in her post, "A Cow Named Lulubelle".

Lulubelle

These days, we are training Aidan on how to boost his self confidence. We asked him to choose what he likes by looking over at the counter. He preferred just the plain frozen yogurt despite seeing all the fresh fruits, chocolate and cereal topping options.

Lulubelle-7
Lulubelle's Plain Yogurt Small (P80) and Flavored Yogurt Small (P80) with granola toppings (P20).

We tried both the plain and strawberry frozen yogurt of Lulubelle. The tanginess and sweetness taste of the frozen yogurt was a bit awkward. We should have listened to Lori's recommendation to try out the smoothies instead. Have you tried Lulubelle's frozen yogurt already?

California Berry Frozen Yogurt

California Berry-5
California Berry Banana Split Signature Creation (P115) - Banana, Strawberry, White Chocolate chips

The resemblance of California Berry to the famous Pink Berry is obvious. The color scheme and menu is a bit similar. I like the frozen yogurt which tastes similar to Pink Berry as well. It was great to see nutrition facts for the California Berry yogurt.

California Berry-2
The Ortigas outlet is actually small and hidden inside Silver City Mall. It is not an ideal place to hang-out because of its location beside the parking lot. I do hope they get a better location for their future outlets. You would need the map below to locate it.

I would recommend eating the frozen yogurt naked to really enjoy it.
