In 1969, the beach party starts, and Ramar Foods begins to innovate tropical ice cream and Filipino cuisine for American audiences. Magnolia Tropical Ice Cream is one of the original Ramar creations. made in Northern California since 1972, with genuine California milk and the finest fruit, Magnolia offers a taste of pure paradise. Magnolia Ice Cream is made in the USA with Real Tropical Fruits from the South Pacific and Hormone-Free California Milk. Keeping our 40+ year tradition of High Quality Tropical Ice Cream alive, Magnolia® is made from 100% Real Imported Fruit Puree's from South-East Asia, and Real Milk resulting in a taste you cannot compare.
My family was very fortunate to be able to try out a variety of tropical ice creams from Magnolia including:
Inspired by avocado shakes - the legendary Filipino tropical treat - and made with North American avocadoes, our rich ice cream is so super creamy that your taste buds will totally bliss out.
Avocado ice cream? Hmm now this is different that is for sure. I love avocado as a dip or on my burgers or tacos, but ice cream? Well why not (I have heard of avocado cheesecake, so anything is possible) it just may work. The sweet and creamy flavor worked well with the avocado, it was a light flavor that was sweet and got high marks from my family.
Coconut- it's the ultimate tropical taste sensation from the Philippines, one of the world's largest coconut producers. Subtle, creamy and sweet, our rich Coconut ice cream brings the tropics to a bowl near you.
Now I know coconut and ice cream are a great match. I have had coconut ice-cream many times in the past, but the Magnolia version was the creamiest and most flavorful I have ever had. This was my absolute favorite! It had just the right amount of coconut, and was not filled with coconut shavings like others I have had. Here is the coconut ice cream paired with apple pie, they worked so well together!
Lychee, an aromatic tropical fruit with sweet nectar inside, creates a rich ice cream that's surprisingly bright. Each creamy spoonful will hit you like a wave of intense tropical flavor.
Now this was a new experience, my family and I have never tried a lychee before. This seems to be a fruit that is getting more popular, when we watch the food network there is always someone making something with the lychee. This was a very light flavor ice cream, the lychee had a mild flavor that went well in the ice cream.
The Philippines grow the world's most delicious mangoes, so we combine their silky sweetness with the richness of real cream. One spoonful will take you to a tropical place.
What is better than sweet ripe mango? Well nothing really I think it is the world’s most perfect fruit. Well one thing that could make it better would be to make it in ice-cream form, and that is what Magnolia has done. This ice cream is wonderful, you could just close your eyes and you feel like you are biting into some fresh mango, it is amazing.
The tropics are full of surprises, and our Purple Yam ice cream is one of them. It might sound crazy, but you won't believe how addictive the subtle/sweet flavor can be.
This reminded me of a sweet potato of sorts, similar but not the same. Hmm I would describe it as a frozen sweet potato pie without the spices. It had a sweet flavor that I loved. Unfortunately my daughter was not a fan, too strong of a flavor for her. But my husband and I loved the complex and unique flavor.
Experience the rich flavor of Thailand in our special blend of Thai Tea and sweet cream. You don't have to be on a Thai beach to enjoy it, but you'll feel like you are.
Tea ice cream, ahh a match made in heaven. Think of adding milk to your tea, a creamy tea flavored delight. I was lucky to even get a taste, my husband loved this so much he nearly devowored the pint in one sitting. This was a great cool flavor, that was a sweet chai tea that was great in ice-cream form.
We were also able to try the ice cream bars, that were the same flavors as the pints. They were portable treats that were just as great as the pints. Overall we loved the different flavors, was this the vanilla, or chocolate ice cream you usually get? No, it is an entirely different experience. But different is good, time to step outside of the box, you may just find something you will love. So if you are looking for unique flavors, that pop and are amazing, I would highly recommend tropical ice cream from Magnolia. The flavors are different, but not so different that you would find them strange.
