When it comes to ice cream, Magnolia has been a household name for as long as I can remember. My day won’t be complete without buying Magnolia Ice Cream Twin Popsies and Pinipig Crunch from the ice cream man that would pass by our house ringing his bell. As for those in the tub, my favorites were Strawberry and Coffee and Mangosteen. I would be giddy with joy as I dig into my favorite flavors and finish off a whole glass of them.
When I first found out about Magnolia Ice Cream BEST OF THE PHILIPPINES Collection, I got really proud. Magnolia released a collection of ice cream flavors that showcases the popular flavors inherent from the country’s different provinces. I found it patriotic and what made it special is that they created combinations of flavors — they combined two flavors from two provinces.
Some of the earlier flavors that was released were Durian Pastillas, Ube Keso, Pinipig Pandan, Caramel Cashew Fudge, Macapuno Banana, and Macapuno Lanka. Among these flavors, I fell in love with Durian Pastillas and Ube Keso.
IF you think it’s going to stop there, you’re mistaken. The 5th wave of new flavors of MAGNOLIA ICE CREAM BEST OF THE PHILIPPINES Collection has been released. Each flavor contains a combination of two regional delicacies that highlights and uniquely capture the goodness of these provinces.
SILI CON TSOKOLATE EH!
This flavor features the provinces of Bicol & Batangas.
It’s a dark chocolate ice cream base made delicious with tablea bits swirled by chili fudge. Upon opening the tub, you’ll be able to see the reddish chili ripple ribbons swirled in the ice cream. I tried tasting it and man, oh, man, it is spicy! But combining it with the thick dark chocolate ice cream base makes it perfect. It becomes that zing amidst the sweetness and the bittersweet flavor of the tablea.
Ykaie was actually hesitant to try it at first when she saw that it has Sili but gave in because of the chocolate. She gives this flavor her two thumbs up. This is actually one of my favorite flavors from the 5th wave release.
This flavor features flavors from the provinces of Palawan & Dumaguete.
You’ll find this irresistible specially if you’re a Sans Rival fan. This ice cream flavor has a butter-vanilla ice cream base that’s filled with Sans Rival bits and rippled with cashew fudge!
This is Ykaie’s favorite flavor from the bunch — all because of that rich, buttery ice cream base.
STRAWBERRY RED VELVET OTAP
This flavor features flavors from the provinces of Benguet & Cebu.
It’s rich strawberry ice cream base made creamier with sweet and tart strawberry bits and filled with toasted otap bits from Cebu. It’s so good, you’d want a second helping.
I know I did. I love strawberry!
MANGO & MANGOSTEEN
This flavor features flavors from the provinces of Guimaras & Davao.
It has a luscious mango ice cream base with mango bits then swirled with mangosteen fudge. This flavor is actually like a combination of me and my peanutbutter♥. That’s because peanutbutter♥‘s favorite fruit is mango and my favorite fruit is mangosteen! I could eat a kilo in one sitting… That’s why this is my second favorite flavor among the 5th wave release.
What I love about this flavor is that it’s refreshingly fruity and it would forever remind me of summer.
There you go. Those are the 5th wave of new flavors of MAGNOLIA ICE CREAM BEST OF THE PHILIPPINES Collection.
These are truly one of a kind flavors. Goodness na pinag-isa. PINAS-saya, PINAS-special.
