MANILA -- Sebastian’s Ice Cream celebrates Pride Month with a rainbow of frozen treats.
First off are the Pride Pops, themed popsicles in the colors of LGBTQ flag with every color having a different flavor.
The Rainbow Pride Pop represents the original Pride Flag designed in 1978 by Gilbert Baker. This is a fruit-based ice pop consisting of strawberry, orange, mango, green apple, blueberry and grape. It's light, refreshing and flavorful and a delicious treat regardless of your orientation.
The Bear Pride Pop is patterned after the Bear Pride flag was designed to represent the bear subculture within the LGBT community. The colors of the flag are meant to include the colors of the furs of animal bears throughout the world, not necessarily referring to human skin and hair color tones:
The Bear Pride Pop is a milk-based ice pop in stripes flavored with chocolate, Nutella caramel, coffee, vanilla, black sesame, and black cocoa.
This is the newest addition is the baby blue, baby pink, and white Transgender Pride Pop that was made to show support to the transgender community. The Trans Pride Pop is a Yakult-based ice pop made with layers of Blackberry Yakult, Strawberry Yakult, and Original Yakult.
