Carmen’s Best Malted Milk

One of the disadvantages of living outside Metro Manila is “nahuhuli sa uso” because you can’t try the new restaurant or food because it is too far from your place and you can’t buy the product or avail the service because there’s no branch near you. 

I feel that we’re the last persons who haven’t tried Carmen’s Best ice cream. Naunahan pa ko ni Pope Francis. Carmen’s Best ice cream was served during his flight back to Rome.

I always see this in Instagram since last year and I’ve been meaning to try it but it was only yesterday that I finally bought this at Puregold Molito. I was so happy when I saw the Carmen’s Best freezer. 



I was having hard time choosing but I chose the Malted Milk flavor which is one of the best seller. I also bought disposable spoon so we could eat the ice cream on our way way home. It is more or less 30 minutes travel time via SLEX so sayang naman pag nagmelt. Hehehe! 



Malted Milk flavor is made with Horlicks and Maltesers. I love Maltesers so I really enjoyed eating the ice cream. The ice cream is so creamy, smooth, dense and you know that they did not scrimp on the ingredients. 



It is quite steep for the budget but sometimes you have to indulge and treat yourself. I would definitely try other flavors of Carmen’s Best. 

So far there’s only one size of Carmen’s Best because according to their website. It is home made, handcrafted in the old-fashioned way and done in small quantities. Carmen’s Best uses only 100% fresh cow’s milk and cream that’s delivered daily, at dawn, from the family’s dairy farm in Bay, Laguna.

The amount of ice cream that they make depends on the amount of fresh milk that they get. From the fresh milk, they extract the cream that rises to the top which is what gives Carmen’s Best that incredibly smooth, silky texture.

Carmen’s Best sources the rest of their ingredients from all over the world. Horlicks malted milk from England, chocolates from Switzerland, rum from Jamaica, the finest vanilla beans from exotic Madagascar Vanilla, and Turon de Jijona from Spain. Quality means taking no shortcuts, and getting no substitutes for the finest ingredients. Very simply that is the secret of Carmen’s Best. 



Try it and be the judge if it is worth it. The tub is almost empty when we arrived home.

  2. Talk about living outside Metro Manila! I lived in Mindanao. It takes a plane or a boat to get there. Huhuhu...

    Anyway, I haven't tried Carmen's Best. Siguro someday, when I get to visit Manila.

  3. Once I tried Carmen's Best. It's not too sweet but it's super creamy and dense. It's really not something we could buy everyday because of the price.

  4. I just had Ice Cream for breakfast, hahaha. Leftover from last night. Anyway, after reading this, I squinted so hard to look at the other flavors of Carmen's best in your pic, haha. I'm not much of a Vanilla flavor fan but I thought there must be a flavor there to my liking. :)

    1. I'm a fan of vanilla naman but malted milk is not a vanilla flavor, more on mocca nga panlasa ko. :)
