Back To The 90's (part 1): Yakult and Sebastian's Fro-ya.

I'm pretty sure almost everyone is familiar with the term fro-yo because of the yogurt craze that swept the archipelago but let me ask you... have you ever heard of Fro-Ya?

Check for this sign to know if they're serving fro-ya.

 Fro-ya, which stands for frozen yakult, is the brainchild of Sebastian's Ice Cream Studio.  For those of you who are unfamiliar, Yakult  is a japanese probiotic milk-like product known for a special strain of bacterium referred to as lactobacillus casei shirota.  The drink was so popular in the 90's which was why by incorporating this into an ice cream base resulting to a creamy yakult substance in frozen form, a spoonful of fro-ya brought me back to my fondest childhood memories!

In my opinion, Fro-Ya is a pretty unique concept and a refreshing sight to see also amidst all sorts of frozen yogurts popping up everywhere.  As for the flavor, it literally tastes like yakult poured and mixed into a hefty serving of vanilla ice cream.  Yummy!

My cup of Fro-Ya.

A little warning though: Fro-Ya seems to be bit on the rich side so be sure to have a bottle of mineral water ready.  I usually can finish a cup or two of ice cream from Sebastian's without getting dizzy but with Fro-Ya, I had to give T a fourth of my cup.
