Mad Scramble for Pinoy Skrambol

There’s a new dessert fad in town and I’ve just hopped on to the already-crowded pink bandwagon. Everyone is just going crazy for the classic Pinoy cooler- the skrambol. (Is this the end of froyo?) Some people spell it as ‘scramble’ but I choose to spell it the way I do because this refreshing sweet  dessert is uniquely Pinoy and it deserves a (relatively) Pinoy name.

What was once street food has now gone mainstream, with many new franchises littering your favorite malls. One of the more popular franchises is BuzBox Scrambles. They have a stall at the busy food court of SM Megamall and the customers just keep on coming. We were there last Sunday around eight in the evening when the crowd was thin but we still had to wait a good few minutes in line before we got to order.

I’ve been eating skrambol off the streets since I was a kid but up until this day, I still don’t know what the pink goop is made of exactly. All I know is that the street cooler I’m used to is delicious- it’s pink, sweet, cool, and frothy topped with a sprinkle of powdered milk and a drizzle of chocolate syrup. The mall stalls sell nearly the exact same thing but they added more topping choices such as rice crispies and mini-marshmallows.

I love marshmallows and rice crispies mixed in together with the pink base and powdered milk. I also love that it’s cheap enough to be affordable on a daily basis. The best part is that it’s now available in malls. Yes, I’m a fan, can’t you tell yet? The appeal of this newest food fad to many is that it’s cheap (about a tenth of the price of froyo), uniquely delicious and highly addicting. Pinoy skrambol is made of WIN!

Does anybody know what the pink base is made of?

    naalala ko nun, nagulpi ako ni mama dahil sa pagkain ng skrambol tuwing uwian.

    I wasn't supposed to get caught until manong skrambol said, "uy, mama mo oh."
