Cooling Summer up with Missy Bon Bon Gelato

Kagay-anons have a new way to cool summer up. The company that brought Cagayan De Oro’s pride Bigby’s cafe has come up with another delightful offering. Presenting…Missy Bon Bon Breadshop.

Missy Bon Bon Breadshop offers a variety of ‘to-go’ sweet delicacies and desserts. From cakes to gelatos, Missy Bon Bon knows well how to tickle the taste buds of both Kagay-anons and the tourists. Very famous among the locals lately is Missy Bon Bon Breadshop’s gelatos. Their gelatos come in different flavors. They have Vanilla Bean, Buko Lychee, Roasted Almond, Green Tea, Melon, and the classic favorite Ube.

Some of the flavors liked by many lately include Sansrival and Blueberry. I personally tried it and there’s not much difference in terms of taste between a slice of cake and a gelato. Just like Starbucks, it’s the experience that this breadshop offers. Imagine eating Blueberry Cheesecake but you’d want it to fit the summer season. So you want it very cold, hence, the Blueberry Cheese Gelato. Or maybe you’d like to eat a summer version of your classic coffee shop order Sansrival. Ask for it, they have it. The best so far is the summer experience of coffee. Coffee is just not the drink you’d like to have anytime in summer except at night time. But Missy Bon Bon Breadshop has come up with something that we can enjoy it without necessarily stirring a cup of coffee. And this is the Cappuccino gelato.
