MANILA, Philippines — If the Philippines has a “national dessert,” it could definitely be the halo-halo—a creamy concoction of local and preserved fruits, sweet beans, sweetened banana and more, then topped with shaved ice, evaporated milk, ube and leche flan.
As summer quickly approaches, nothing beats relishing this cold, sweet treat on a scorching Sunday afternoon just like this coming March 19.
On this day, Mang Inasal celebrates Filipinos’ love affair with the dessert by holding the “National Halo-Halo Sarap Day” in all its branches nationwide.
“Filipinos love halo-halo. And this love is rooted in various reasons—from cultural to heartwarming personal stories and memories associated with family and loved ones,” says Mang Inasal Brand Manager Paygee Anne Palmos.
She adds, “With our well-loved Pinoy Halo-Halo, we wanted to pioneer a celebration that everyone could easily relate to. And with the hot Philippine summer settling in, we decided to launch a nationwide celebration of our love for halo-halo.”
Mang Inasal’s Pinoy Halo-Halo is a favorite among diners. It combines classic ingredients red sago, buko pandan jelly, langka, ube halaya, yellow beans, red mongo beans, leche flan, macapuno and banana. Completing the delectable treat are the shaved ice milk and toppings ube ice cream and barquillos.
All this goodness you can taste for only P25, small cup, and P45, regular cup, during the National Halo-Halo Sarap Day. Maximum of five orders per single receipt transaction.
So, mark your calendars and make your Sunday sweeter with friends and families as you share stories around the halo-halo. Do not forget to post these moments on social media with the hashtag, #HaloHaloSarapDay.
