冷やしてもおいしい

Hi everybody,

So I picked up some Mint Pocky today at H-Mart (score!) - on the packaging it said 「冷やしてもおいしい」, which I translate (in terms of meaning) as "also delicious chilled [cold, refrigerated, etc]". But I thought the -te form + mo construction has more of a "even [if]" meaning - so the phrase seems to me to literally mean "delicious even if it is chilled [cold, refrigerated, etc]" - which still makes sense I guess - but it seems a bit backward in terms of advertising.

Am I thinking about this right? Anybody care to comment?

Thanks!

:)

Right about all except it seeming backwards.

Delicious as it is....and also delicious chilled.
