Restaurant: Gwenie’s Desserts
Location: 12113 Nevel St., Rockville MD
Gwenie’s is a pop-up shop in Rockville, MD but I got a chance to check them out at the Philippine Festival in Towson, MD this past weekend. I’ve been meaning to give them a try but never got around to going to Rockville, so this was the next best thing.
…and I honestly have been missing out!
These ice candies (basically just frozen mixture of whatever flavor in a plastic bag) is absolutely amazing… and brings me back to my childhood… down to even the very feel of the plastic bag that they use! The flavors were so rich (ube + avocado pictured above) and not at all grainy! Not sure if they use artificial flavoring (maybe?) or fresh fruits… but regardless, they tasted FRESH. I couldn’t stop eating them! Outside of these 2 flavors, they also have mango which I didn’t get a chance to try.
If you’re ever down in Rockville during the weekends… or you catch them at a festival somewhere…DON’T PASS UP ON THIS DESSERT because you will 100% regret it!
