After South Korea started the Dalgona coffee trend, they now have a new coffee trend this 2021 called the McBassett, which is essentially a different kind of affogato you can make by combining McDonald's coffee and McDonald's ice cream.
The McBassett involves ordering an iced latte and a soft serve in a cone, sipping a bit of the coffee (just so it won't spill!), then placing the ice cream in the coffee. It's like an affogato, but instead of espresso, you switch it up by using the creamier, milkier iced latte instead.
Are you wondering why it's called McBassett, too? The McBassett got its name because it is a hack to the famous Ice Cream Latté drink from a famous coffee chain in South Korea called Paul Bassett.
Paul Bassett currently has stores in South Korea and Japan only and the Ice Cream Latte costs KRW6300 (P272), which is why the McBassett hack was born. It's a cheaper alternative and it's an achievable hack across McDonald's stores around the world.
If you want to try this out (here in the Philippines!), all you have to do is order an Iced Latte from McCafé and order a separate vanilla soft serve in a cone.
