The Unknown Dan Eric

Many people in our neck of the woods (Cavite) have most probably known of Dan Eric's.  But who, or what pray tell, is a Dan Eric?

Dan Eric?

Dan Eric's is a local ice cream brand that is quite popular here in the South (although I’ve been told they also have it up North in the Rizal area as well.)  It’s creamy texture and tasty flavors make this one truly heavenly dessert, rivaling the best and well-known brands, but at a fraction of the cost.

My personal fave is their Choco Marble flavor with it’s marshmallow-like consistency.

Choco Marble

The price?  So affordable!  Prices start at Php15 for a cup to Php160 for half a gallon.  It definitely won’t burn holes on your pocket.

Another thing I love about Dan Eric’s ice creams, no matter how long we’ve placed them inside the freezer, they never seem to completely turn rock solid.  They’re still as easy to scoop out and retain their shape quite nicely.


There are a few downsides:

1. They melt quite easily.  Not really a big deal.  I know lots of people who prefer their ice creams a little melted.  Unfortunately, I’m not one of them. Hehehe!  J

2. Dan Eric’s ice creams aren’t available in major supermarkets or grocery stores.  We usually buy them at select corner sari-sari stores and whatnot.  Smalls signs are what informs the public that there are Dan Eric’s ice creams available.

3. Flavors are a little limited selling only the very basics (i.e. Chocolate, Vanilla, Fruit Salad, etc.)  If yours is of a more adventurous palette, then this brand may not be to your liking.

Dan Eric’s ice creams have slowly become a part of some of our previous clan reunions (ravenous people, these relatives of mine.  J)  They make the perfect dessert at such an affortable price.


  1. cavite lang ba to? kinain ko to last sat while waiting for my turn (check-up sa alabang). not really sure sa spelling pero dan eric's ang tanda ko, chocofi and rocky road ang nabili ni hubby.(P12) =) pero wala sa choices of flavors mo.

  7. I remember having my first DE way back in college @ DLSU-D.
    A store across Niog, Cavite used to sell DE's but I no longer see it every time we pass by.
    Good thing there's a house inside one village in Lipa that still sells DE :)

    @bursky: Pints are only a 100 bucks. Really affordable. =)

    @Eileen: There are some in Paranaque too. Not sure where in Las Pinas. You'll really have to keep an eye open for their sale signs. =)

    @A: There's on in Rizal if you're within the area. =)

    @Tsinoy Foodies: Can't remember if there's cheese. Although they already have quite a lot. =)

PH | Bang's Tony & Jackey Beauty Salon's Aqua Volume Rebond

I've always had ruly, unmanageable hair for as long as I can remember, hence the introduction of rebonding services here in PH is a blessing.  I've been having my hair rebonded or relaxed once a year since 2002.  It's an expense that I make sure is always included in the yearly luxury budget.

Whereas before I used to have my hair rebonded at a David's Salon (since they always deliver consistently great results), I had to stop and look to other establishments when they eventually jacked up their prices (what used to cost me Php3,000 is now priced at Php5,000 to Php6,000, depending on the branch!).  Too much for my already hurting wallet.  Hence, the need to try other salons.  I've been happy with the results, so far.

The one thing though. that always gets me though is how lifeless and limp my hair tends to look when newly treated.  It's always the case wherever I have my tresses done.  It will look it's best at least a month or 2 after treatment.  It was onl…

Style for Less: Ballerina Flats (Tory Burch vs Kamiseta)

Have you ever noticed how fashionable high-end items just keep on being reinvented by some other brand.  Well after having my eyes checked for fear of seeing doubles (normal daw sabi ni Doc), I decided to scour through the malls in search of fashion doppelgangers.

THE SPLURGE: Tory Burch's Reva ballerina flats (USD195 or around Php9,000)

When well-known American fashion designer Tory Burch released her line of Reva ballerina flats, it was an instant hit.  Known for its incredibly comfortable material and structure with a nicely padded sole and an elasticized heel, these babies made a killing and everyone wanted one. 

How to Apply for a Philippine Postal ID Card

I've said it once and I'll say it again, woe to the newly married woman who has, for years, have gotten so used to her surname only to find that a single (wedding) day, will change this familiarity forever.

I have to admit, it was not easy for me to adapt to a new surname, due mainly for professional reasons.  Throughout my profession career, I have been known by my maiden name and to have to inform all my contacts of the change was, well, too tiresome.  And so I decided to go the hypenated route and I eventually ended up with 2 surnames.  Such was the compromise!  =)
