Here are some of the latest food fares you can enjoy in your next trip to the cashier of these fast food chains!

For Filipinos, breakfast is the most essential meal of the day. Busy or not, it is vital to grab a bite to kickstart the day.

Mang Inasal Creamy Halo-Halo

On March 17, Mang Inasal will celebrate the National Halo Halo Sarap Day. Now on its third year, the National Halo-Halo Sarap Day will have all Mang Inasal stores nationwide, offering the Mang Inasal Pinoy Halo-Halo at discounted prices of P35 for small serving and P55 for regular serving.

Most foodies agree that there are three factors to consider in this classic Pinoy merienda and dessert: the texture of shaved ice, which should be fine and smooth; the quality and variety of its mixed ingredients; and, last, but definitely not the least, the creaminess of the milk.

While the Mang Inasal Pinoy Halo-Halo scores high in all three qualities, a number of foodies agree that what really makes Mang Inasal Pinoy Halo-Halo stand out is its deliciously creamy milk which perfectly harmonizes all its ingredients together.

“We are happy to note that our customers crave for the creaminess of the Mang Inasal Pinoy Halo-Halo,” said Marketing Director Mike Dumaual. “This milk was exclusively developed for the MI Pinoy Halo-Halo and is not readily available off the shelf, Dumaual added.

Even actress and self-confessed foodie, Angel Locsin loves the creaminess of the Mang Inasal Pinoy Halo-Halo. As the face of this brand’s great-tasting treat, Angel attests to the creaminess of this all-time Pinoy favorite.
