Nenecita’s Sorbetes, Reliving A Filipino Culture

 

Growing up as a Filipino kid, we all remember that exciting feeling the moment we hear the tinkling bells of mamang sorbetero. We then find ourselves rush towards nanay or tatay asking for money to appease our craving palate.

Over the years, sorbeteros across the world has been creative in bringing us more flavors to enjoy. Nevertheless, we always look back to the days were we happily eat our ice cream and its crunchy wafer cones.

And if you are missing that 100% lasang pinoy kind of ice cream, Nenecita’s Sorbetes brings you its very own classic Pinoy Sorbetes.

Small Beginnings of Nenecita’s Sorbetes

It all started when they found an old family ice cream recipe. It piqued their interest and they decided to learn more. In 2015, the family opened a small pandesal store in Alae, Bukidnon and thought of producing the ice cream recipe they have learned to pair up with their bread. Then their products became “in-demand” across Alae.

Sometime after that, the family was offered a spot to sell ice cream in Cagayan de Oro City which was situated at Ayala, Centrio Mall.  

To date Nenecita’s Sorbetes can be located at Gaisano Mall (4th floor, Food Court), Divisoria (beside Jollibee Xavier Branch), Centrio Mall (near TGI Fridays) and Uptown Mercato (near XU Highschool Uptown). They are currently aiming to expand to different areas in the Philippines in order to promote their product and spread one of the symbols of the Filipino culture.

Nenecita’s Sorbetes Concept

The family shared that from their humble beginnings and until now, they do not only look to gain profit from their family recipe, they also intend to preserve the culture of Proudly Pinoy Sorbetes.

What sets apart Nenecita’s Sorbetes from other ice creams stations is that instead of using freezers, they chose to maintain the temperature and preserve sorbetes with a more natural technique using ice and salt.

Trivia: Adding salt to ice maintains low water temperature thus delaying the melting of ice. This provides a more natural taste for the produced ice cream.

And knowing the Philippines as a Coconut abundant country, Nenecita’s Sorbetes is also using a mixture of their special ingredient- coconut milk, instead of the usual cow’s milk.
