Pure Indulgence: Carmen's Best Ice Cream

No additives. No water. Not a hint of mass production. Just 100% all-natural fresh cow's milk and cream, and the very best premium ingredients go into each pint of Carmen's Best Ice Cream.  That's pure indulgence...


Dense, rich, smooth and creamy, Carmen's Best Ice Cream is homemade artisanal ice cream at its best, made the old-fashioned way.



Paco Magsaysay, the creative force behind Carmen's Best, explains the process that goes into each and every pint. With access to pure and fresh cow's milk from the family's dairy farm in Laguna, it seemed only  natural to go with ice cream as the logical next step. With an ice cream maker, Paco whipped up a few fresh batches, and his hobby eventually turned into a successful small business. In 2013, Paco enrolled at Penn State's Ice Cream Short Course where he finished with the top prize, the Keeney Award. Since then, Paco's small business has gained a loyal following, with a growing distribution chain allowing more local consumers to experience real ice cream. And some awards along the way, including being judged as the 2011 Filipino Artsanal Ice Cream Overall Winner and inclusion in Spot.ph's Top Ten Homemade Ice Cream brands.


Using 100% fresh and all-natural cow's milk and cream from the family's dairy farms, Carmen's Best then combines the finest ingredients from all over the globe, including vanilla beans from Madagascar, Horlicks malted milk from England, and pistachios from Sicily. Carmen's Best now has over 29 flavors, and here;s the full list to make your mouth water: Pistachio, Pistachio Almond Fudge, Jamoca Almond Fudge, Hokey Pokey, Spanish Turron, Brazilian Coffee, Butter Pecan, Salted Caramel, Malted Milk, Kahlua Coffee, Eggnog, Cereal Milk, Green Tea, Avocado, Butterscotch Pecan, Cheese, Coconut Cookie Dough, Cookies & Cream, Dark Chocolate, Hazelnut, Honey, Madagascar Vanilla, maple Walnut, Milk Chocolate, Rocky Road, Strawberry, Tres Leches, and Ube. We sampled some of Carmen's Best's flavors, all bestsellers, including Pistachio, made with premium Sicilian pistachios...


...Salted Caramel, an indulgent combination of the subtle, smoky sweetness of salted caramel with the rich, creamy, and buttery ice cream for a sweet and salty punch...


...Cereal Milk, which brings you back to childhood summers capturing the rich flavors at the bottom of the cereal bowl...


...and Butter Pecan, made with fresh butter from the family farm and crunchy pecan morsels. And the difference is immediately evident, fresh cow's milk and cream and premium ingredients combine for pure indulgence. And if you're wondering who Carmen is, she's Paco's daughter...


Carmen's Best's sweet success is made even sweeter with their ongoing advocacy. Since they started operations in 2011, Carmen's Best has been donating part of its proceeds to the Philippine General Hospital (PGH).  And here's even sweeter news, stay tuned for a special giveaway treat from Carmen's Best...
