I was very blessed to dine with my best friend over lunch yesterday at Empire Deli & Restaurant. I’ve always been eyeing this list of ice cream flavors that I see written on their blackboard, but I never got the chance to taste any of them as it was out of my budget. While said best friend and I were picking our meals from the menu, I made a random babble about the Pinkerton ice cream and, probably because he couldn’t resist my charm (chos), he said that he’d treat me to a serving. Yeheeeeey!
Now, I can say that I’ve tasted the best ice cream ever, and to think that it’s LOCAL! Pinkerton Ice Cream tastes so rich and thick—unlike the easily-melting local brands. I think this is because of their No Skimping policy, which means that each serving is prepared using the best ingredients. Oh, and if you love chunks and texture in your ice cream just like me, Pinkerton is perfect for you! It may cost double the price of other local brands but I can tell you that the quality of the ice cream you get makes everything worth it.
According to their FB page, this is the list of their flavors (and the corresponding prices) which I am sure would be very interesting for most of you ;) And I added some pictures from their FB page too, just to make you salivate.

I seriously think that Pinkerton Ice Cream should be exported to other countries, if there is a way to export ice cream. This seriously is the best ice cream in Manila!
Can my freezer please look like this?
For the sigurista ones, the best-selling Pinkerton Ice Cream flavors include Carrot Cake, Apple, Banana Nutella, Honeycomb, Red Velvet, Banana Honey Glazed Walnut, Mocha, and Guava Basil Sorbet.
