You just got soft-served.
We’ve been through this: the possibilities are endless with milk tea— we’ve seen Brown Sugar Milk Tea ice cream doused in pearls, haven’t we? And this year, Harlan + Holden Coffee is bringing out the big guns with one of their latest additions to the menu: the Dark Chocolate Hazelnut Soft Serve.
It honestly looks too good to eat, but here’s why we think this frozen dessert will thrill you. The combination of dark chocolate and hazelnut is reminiscent of the choco hazelnut spread, Nutella. And the best part? It has actual chewy milk tea pearls on top.
You can enjoy this Dark Chocolate Hazelnut Soft Serve in three different ways: soft-serve in a cup (₱50), soft-serve in a cone (₱50), and soft-serve in a cup topped with boba pearls (₱65).
And just to let you know, Harlan + Holden Coffee in BGC only runs on cashless transactions, so make sure to download their app to order in advance. Or if you have a credit card or debit card, you can also order through their self-checkout tablets.
Nutella-flavored soft-serve with milk tea pearls? A combo we never knew we needed! For more information on their latest menu additions, check out Harlan + Holden Coffee on Facebook.
We think you just got soft-served with Harlan + Holden Coffee dessert, but if you’re looking for some more places to get your fix, here’s a list of places in Metro Manila known for their delicious soft-serve ice cream. Read on for some serious eats!
