The other day we were in traffic behind the Bubu Lubu truck and had plenty of time to analyze the Bubu Lubu mascot and speculate on what exactly a Bubu Lubu was. We determined that despite the fact that the truck did not appear to be refrigerated, Bubu Lubus must be some sort of ice cream bar. Why, you might ask? Well, today I was at the Mega and I saw one while I was waiting to check out, so I had to buy it.
Behold, the Bubu Lubu dude.
He's clearly wearing gloves and a scarf. He also appears to be made of snow, right? And his hair do is sort of avalanche-ish? Right? But seriously, he's wearing glove and a scarf!
It's not ice cream, despite the deceptive packaging. It's actually a chocolate bar, or in this case, a pair of chocolate bars.
On the side of the truck it looked like they were vanilla ice cream with a layer of strawberry sauce and then coated in chocolate. Behold the actual Bubu Lubu interior:
If I was a nice blogger I would have gotten out the nice camera with the macro lens so that the Bubu Lubus would be in focus rather than the background, but I'm not nice. Anyway, Bubu Lubus are actually a sickeningly sweet combination of marshmallow and strawberry jam coated with chocolate. Hans and I split one with Chico eating the remaining bite and we had to toss out the second one. They're seriously too sweet for adults.
However, this was the closest I came to even seeing a Peep this Easter. They don't do the commercialized Easter Bunny thing here... refreshing!
