Puffles: A Hong Kong Treat on Hollywood Beach
Puffles is a new ice cream shop on Hollywood Beach. As much as South Floridians love ice cream, Puffles has taken ice cream to the next level! This specialty dessert shop brings a hint of Hong Kong to the beach for all of the South Florida residents and visitors to enjoy.
In Hong Kong, there are local stands that serve egg waffles topped with ice cream. What a tasty combination! The hot crispy waffle served with a scoop or two of your favorite ice cream is every kid's dream and every adult's retreat on a hot, Florida day. Puffles has taken the original egg waffle, provided a choice of eight different ice cream flavors, and offers enough toppings to make your palate say, "thank you!"
My husband and I both ordered an egg waffle with a scoop of ice cream. He chose vanilla ice cream and I ordered cookies and cream. He set his eyes on M&Ms, nuts, and caramel toppings (pictured above) and I just ordered nuts. Both of our creations were incredible and we ended up taking bites out of each other's concoctions.
Just when I thought that was enough, Puffles surprised me with a drink that grabbed my heart! They serve bubble teas. I have never had a bubble tea and I was quite eager to see what it was all about. They use vegan milk or Taro (Asian fruit milk) to make a an assortment of bubble teas with different flavors.I tried the Leeche Green Tea with Leeche Jelly and I was blown away! I literally said, "Wow!" after my first sip of my bubble tea. It was smooth, sweet, and the best part is that my drink had leeche in it! You all know that I love leeches!!
Overall, I was really impressed with the entire dessert shop. As a foodie, I'm so used to tasting the same desserts with a different variation. So, it was a pleasant surprise to try two tasty treats that I have never had before.
Would I recommend it: Absolutely! I would definitely go back. I also plan on bringing my goddaughters with me on my next trip.
