I’ve read about the new kid in town – Magnolia Sherbet for a little while now, and today I finally got my hands on some from the Petronas station at Damansara Jaya. It was just laying there beautifully, little containers with 85 ml of delicious goodness in them.
Magnolia Sherbet is finally here!
I picked up one of each flavors available from the lot – Delightful Orange, Marvellous Mangosteen, and Magnificent Melon. Unfortunately Luscious Lychee flavor is sold out at this location, bummer, but 3 out of 4 isn’t too bad I suppose.
Suggested retail price is RM 2.50 (RM 2.80 at East Malaysia), but I think I paid RM 2.70 at Mesra store, usually convenient stores at gas station impose a bit of a premium, oh well. I’m not complaining though.
Cendawan approves Magnolia Sherbet – Melon, Orange, and Mangosteen
The sherbet is kept in little plastic container of their own, and underneath the cap you’ll find a little plastic spoon. This is a pretty smart and messy-less packaging, I like.
The biggest difference between Magnolia Sherbet and just any ice cream is it’s texture. The sherbet comes with real fruit stuff in them – there’s real orange sacs in orange flavored sherbet, mangosteen puree in Mangosteen variety, and nata de coco in Magnificent Melon. Real lychee pieces can be found in the lychee variant too.
In a nutshell, you not only lick, you chew a little too.
this thing actually tastes very good!
The orange flavor is tangy and gives the taste bud a kick, on the other hand, I like the melon varient’s nata de coco pieces too. The mangosteen flavor though, takes a little getting used to, but I guess it’s because that’s the first time I had any sherbet with mangosteen flavor. I have a feeling my mom will like it though.
(by the way mangosteen flavor seems to be Cendawan’s favorite, emmmm..
Since less dairy product is found in sherbet compared to ice cream, the sherbet is also a lot lighter, kinda in between ice and ice cream. Very refreshing, and we can all indulge in them pretty much guilt free. After all, it’s 2011, and I’ve started jogging/exercise a little bit more, so must also eat healthier lah.
That said, I’m contemplating finishing the last one in the fridge before Haze comes back, hehehe.
