We Hacked Bucky’s Brown Butter Polvoron to Have It as an Ice Cream Topping at Home

February 12, 2019

With Valentines day just a couple of days away, we’re sure you’re thinking of the sweetest way to spend it—whether alone or with someone. Regardless if it’s Single Awareness Day or a day of love (although we like to think of the former as a self-love sort of situation), we think you’d agree that ice cream makes sense for anyone in any situation.

And when we think of ice cream, we think of our favorite soft-serve (which we dearly miss being in Poblacion, though it is now in Powerplant Rockwell’s The Grid), Bucky’s. Because it’s now a further walk away from our office and we miss it so, we decided to hack their brown butter to put on top of our stock of office ice cream (You guys have that too, right?). It’s still not soft-serve though, so we’ll probably bump into you at Bucky’s soon.
