5 Unique Reasons to visit Gelare's Flagship Store in the Philippines

Gelare, an Australian-born brand is a store offering artisan-inspired range of ice creams and freshly baked waffles since 1987. It is regarded as one of the premium dessert chains around the world with outlets across Australia, Singapore, HongKong and now in the Philippines.

When I was invited to the launch of its flagship store located in UPTown Mall BGC, Taguig City, I thought " Oh, another ice cream store. Let's see if it would taste like the popular Italian's gelati or gelato or the Korean's bingsu. With the craze that these two types of ice cream brought to the Philippines, I thought Gelare would be a copycat of any of those two but, I was wrong - very, very wrong...

I have never thought that Australian-style ice cream can have its own distinct taste and texture and I never have thought that this very simple store really has a lot to offer.

Here are five unique reasons why you should try Gelare:

Airless ice creams
Have you ever heard of the term? It was the first time I heard about airless ice creams. What I know about ice creams is, of course, the different flavors and colors. I never thought that they also differ in contents. Regular ice cream that we grew up with contains 50% air while famous Gelatos that we have been introduced contains 25% air. Here comes Geláre Ice cream that is airless, yes 0% air! Their ice creams are excitingly delicious because they contain nothing but the real goodness of an ice cream.

Vegan and Halal certified ice creams
I know there are a lot of vegan and Halal certified foods offered in the market and in restaurants or food chains today in the country, but ice creams - I am not aware.

So what do vegan and halal certification mean?

Vegan is defined as no animal or animal by-products to include flesh, bones, dairy, eggs, honey, fur, leather, wool, down feathers, and cosmetics or chemical products tested on animals.

Halal certificate, meanwhile; is a document that guarantees that products and services aimed at the Muslim population meet the requirements of Islamic law and therefore are suitable for consumption in both Muslim-majority countries and in Western countries where there are significant population group who practice Islam. Halal certification is a process which ensures the features and quality of the products according to the rules established by the Islamic Council that allow the use of the mark Halal. It is mainly applied to meat products and other food products such as milk, canned food, and additives.

Filipino culture is very diverse. We have circle of family and friends who have culture and beliefs that differ from us. At Gelare, we can always have a good time despite our differences. Gelare can unite us as ONE thru our palates and stomachs.

They have 5 flavors of Vegan and Halal certified ice cream such as Banana Caramel Swirl, Lychee Lane Sorbet, Mango Passion Sorbet, Lemon Lime Sorbet and hang on matcha lovers out there, Matcha Green Tea.

Hot or cold beverages and anything in between - no limit to your imagination!
It's an ice cream store, it's a dessert cafe. From melt-in-the-mouth gourmet ice cream and warm golden waffles to vegan desserts and light hearty breakfasts, Geláre dessert restaurants are trusted for nothing less than a sweet and savory taste sensation.

Geláre offers 24 staple ice cream flavors to choose from with notable flavors like: Blueberry Cheesecake, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Peanut Butter Cup and Honey Malt.

Making it more exciting is Gelare’s waffle which can be enjoyed both sweet and savory. It comes with a perfect crisp on the outside yet light and fluffy on the inside. For simple pleasures, it can be enjoyed with its rich buttercream topping or add a little excitement with a scoop of any ice cream flavor of your choice to make it à la mode. Or better yet, pair your waffles with Egg benedicts for those ovum lovers.

Those who crave for more tangible protein can go for their Waffle with Buttermilk Chicken; Juicy chicken fillet that’s battered and deep fried to perfection. They also have waffle with Sliced Beef & Gravy; richly flavored and tender, this thinly sliced sirloin is a sure bet.

Craving for java? Fret not, as Geláre offers a robust coffee experience whether hot or cold. They also offer to-die-for Affogato customizable with your choice of ice cream flavor.

For non-coffee drinkers, you will definitely thirst for their smoothies such as Mango Mango and Merry Berries. And hey if you want to go all-out, why not try their Rich Milk shakes with your choice of ice cream.

See? Gelare it not the usual ice cream bar or dessert cafe. They will have you filled from sun up to sun down and in between.

Gelare is Australia's Best!

When you say something is "Made in Australia," it has a reputation for clean, green, quality products made and grown to high quality and safety standards. Everyone of us wants to experience a piece of the "Land Down Under." Australian Made, Australian Grown logo, genuinely Aussie products, the Kangaroo labeled products are definitely "importers' dream". With this, we can expect that Gelare - a brand well-loved throughout Perth and Brisbane, Australia - will deliver a uniquely powerful market advantage.

Gelare is kid-approve!
Why do families usually go out? First and foremost is to treat the kids, of course. Their happiness always comes first among the parents' priorities. At Gelare, I was surprised how my 3-year-old son, Albert feasted on with a plate of Buttermilk Fried chicken and a cup of Strawberry Smoothies. Yes, he ate all that alone and I don't know where did he put everything inside his little tummy. He was innocently eating everything that was served to him.

The way I saw how happy and satisfied my kid was, it made me even more satisfied, although, in fact, I haven't eaten even a half of what my little boy has had. Gelare is definitely a place for the whole family where the kids and the kids-at-heart can have their own fill of sweets, where they can overindulge themselves on desserts. The whole gang can always choose from Geláre's superior desserts including its famous ice cream, waffles, pancakes, hot beverages, smoothies, and light breakfast menu at reasonable prices.

Head on to Geláre at the 3rd level, Uptown BGC and be creative! Come with your family, friends and people dear to your heart and get your palates tantalized! Another branch is opening soon so watch out for more updates on Geláre on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/GelarePH/.
