Carmen’s BEST Ice Cream Indeed!

9/19/2015 Update: CARMEN’S BEST: The Secret Behind One of the Best Ice Creams in the World?

Rockwell UTT Winner #1

200 foodies rated 5- Awesome! I would recommend it!
 132 foodies rated 4- I love it!

     8 foodies rated 2- It is OK.

From the creator of the Best Fresh Milk in Manila, Holly’s Milk, comes the Creamiest Artisan Ice Cream of All — Carmen’s Best! The secret to their ice cream’s yumminess is that they produce their own milk and get only the very best ingredients for their ice cream.

Paco Magsaysay’s Carmen’s Best is the creamiest and most indulgent artisan ice cream I’ve ever tasted in Manila! We love the Malted Milk and Salted Caramel flavors. You will literally close your eyes as you savor the creamy taste of Carmen’s Best ice cream. A pint is never enough.

Foodies rated Carmen’s Best as the No. 1 food in Rockwell’s Ultimate Taste Test! Congratulations, Paco!
