The people who have tried Carmen’s Best just has one thing to say “delicious!” I personally tried Carmen’s Best because my officemates bought one for a birthday celebrant. When I tried it, I just wanted more and ever since, I’ve been visiting their shop at The Market along LP Leviste st. It is my favorite “pasalubong”, gift, peace offering.
The Story of Carmen’s BestWhat started out as Paco Magsaysay’s hobby, turned out to be something people have been craving for - Carmen’s Best ice cream! He had access to pure and fresh cow’s milk from the family’s dairy farm in laguna and it just seemed natural for him to try to make his own ice cream.
This hobby soon turned into a successful small business. In 2013, the family established a fresh milk processing plant in the country. In the same year, Paco also finished Penn State’s Ice Cream Short Cours with the top prize: the Keeney Award.
Today, Carmen’s Best is poised to raise the bar on how premium ice cream should taste.
The Raw MaterialsCarmen’s Best is made from 100% cow’s milk and cream, fresh from their own dairy farm every day. It is one of the best homemade artisanal ice cream you could every try. I personally got in touch with Paco and while I was commending about the rich, creamy and dense feel of the ice cream, he said that it is made of pure and fine ingredients. For example, their Pistachio flavour is made of full, real (no fake flavouring) pistachios. That’s why the flavour tasted legit.
Carmen’s Best is made the old-fashioned way. That means, no water, no additives, no mass-producing, all craftsmanship.
FlavorsThe flavours range from traditional Vanilla, made with vanilla beans from Madagascar, to the much-loved Malted Milk, made with childhood Horlicks malted milk powder from England and their Pistachio flavor made with pure pistachios from Sicily.
