Ben’s Halo-Halo Ice Cream: Laguna’s Creamiest Halo-Halo

It was only last year when I learned about Ben’s Halo-Halo Ice Cream, I watched their story in one of the TV shows. Then I saw Ben’s Halo-Halo Ice Cream branch on our way to Tagaytay and I told myself that I will eat there next time. Pero ang tagal ng next time ko kasi naman December pa yung last Tagaytay trip namin so hindi ko na siya nadadaanan.

Ben Pasco is the owner and founder of Ben’s Halo-Halo Ice Cream. He used to be a domestic worker in Italy for 11 years but he was not contented with his position so he decided to return home and start a business in 2013. He started a small bakeshop but it was not successful. The business was closed after six months but he did not give up and he opened Ben’s Halo-Halo. Now there are 29 stores already, one owned which is located in San Pablo Laguna and 28 franchises all over Luzon.

Anyway, last weekend nagugutom ako so my husband suggested na magmerienda daw kami sa Ben’s Halo-Halo. My husband went here before and he likes the halo-halo so off we went to Viewfort Carmona where the store is located.

I thought it was just a small halo-halo store pero in fairness marami din tables and chairs. You can sit inside or outside the store. Of course, we chose the tables inside para malamig. We got the menu and surprisingly, madami din pala food. They offer coolers, sandwiches, pasta, rice meals, pika-pika, and hot and cold drinks.

For coolers, you can choose halo-halo, spicy winter, salty summer, macapuno, banana con yelo, mais con yelo and gulaman. You have to go to the cashier to order and of course pay. We ordered Halo-Halo P90 and French Fries P40. While waiting, they served water.

After several minutes, ou order came and I’m just a little bit disappointed with the fries kasi hindi same sa picture na punong-puno ang lagayan, Expectation vs Reality. hehehe! Good thing the halo-halo did not fail us, it is true that they serve creamy halo-halo. The secret is they mix gelato in the shaved ice.

It is quite similar to the popular Razon’s Halo-halo na pino ang ice shaved but the difference is, mas marami ingredients and mas mura sa Ben’s Halo-halo. After trying the halo-halo, I’m happy na may bago na kami kakaininan, if we are craving for halo-halo.

Update: March 2022

It's been a while since the last time we ate at Ben's Halo-Halo Ice Cream. We make our own halo-halo na kasi kapag summer but last weekend my husband was craving for Halo-Halo. He inquired through Facebook Messenger if they do deliveries. He received an automatic reply "Please book via Lalamove delivery, once the rider accepted please message your orders to this number. Payment via Gcash"

We don't have Lalamove account nor Gcash account so he just went to Ben's Halo-Halo Ice Cream to satisfy his cravings. He ordered 3 Special Halo-Halo for takeout kasi ayaw namin sumama, the Special Halo-Halo is already PHP105.
