Magnolia Ice Cream & Treats
10 Sweet Filipino Dessert Spots in the Upper Peninsula
Halo-halo. Halohalo. Or, according to the Komisyon sa Wikang Filipino (Commission on the Filipino Language)—haluhalo. However you spell it (from ihalo, “to mix” in Tagalog), halo-halo is an icy dessert delight that has infinite possibilities, and the nearly 100-year-old Filipino food company Magnolia is famous for it. Halo-halo often comes with some mixture of crushed ice, ice cream, fruit, jelly, and beans. A vibrant purple ube ice cream layer contrasted with chunks of golden mango and dots of dark red adzuki beans makes for a treat that’s as good to look at as it is to eat. You can even book your own halo-halo or ice cream bar from Magnolia. Macapuno (coconut), mango, and mais queso (corn and cheese) ice cream flavors await you.
