Barquillos are thin rolled cookies. Usually sold in the streets and "pasalubong" shops. Iloilo is known for this particular delicacy. It is said to have originated from Spain.
Koolstix Barquillos en Sorbetes, a kiosk in Greenhills Shopping Center decided to fill these hand rolled biscuits with Ice Cream. When we were there, their ice cream flavors to choose from were Vanilla and Chocolate. While their Barquillos were flavored Dark Chocolate.

I chose to have my Barquillos filled with Vanilla Ice Cream since I thought it might be too sweet to have both the Ice Cream and Barquillos chocolate flavored.

I enjoyed eating this snack. The Barquillos was thick, crispy and really had a flavor of the Dark Chocolate which went well with the Vanilla Ice Cream. Their ice cream is the typical soft-serve ice cream, but hey, it goes really well with their Barquillos.
For Php 25 a stick, it's definitely worth the try and a refreshing change from the usual ice cream cones we have :)
Great idea, Koolstix! :)
