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.
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.
