Four Top Reasons Why Aice Ice Cream is A Hit

Tuesday, December 31, 2019

br />

When I think of ice cream, only two brands come to mind - Selecta and Magnolia. Well, of course, there are other lesser-known brands that I had tasted for curiosity's sake. 

Unfortunately, I cannot recall most of them anymore. 

But there is a new player in the ice cream industry, at least for me who is not so fond of ice cream, that is winning the hearts of many Negrenses.

Aice Ice Cream is the latest brand in the cold business industry. It is slowly gaining a big chunk of the ice cream market without any advertisement on TV or billboards. 

What is so special about Aice Ice Cream and why people are raving about it? In this article, I will discuss to you the product features of this latest ice cream craze.


My taste bud used to have either Selecta or Magnolia for my ice cream because these two brands are the only ones displayed in the supermarkets. 

Depending on the flavors or whatever caught my fancy, I would grab one of them. What is common about the two are itsextra cream and sweet taste, I cannot tolerate getting a second serving.

The Aice Ice Cream variants, on the other hand, taste entirely different from these big players. It has a less creamy taste and the sweetness is just enough. You got to taste one flavor to see for yourself.

Price and Serving Portion

Aice Ice Cream flavors mostly come on sticks,. One piece of this frozen sweet cost 10 pesos to 20 pesos, depending on the flavor This is a lot cheaper than their Magnolia or Selecta counterparts, which come in pint, half or one-gallon container. 

Magnolia or Selecta products are priced from over 50 pesos to 250 pesos. So, if you just want to satisfy your sweet cravings, which one would you prefer?


Aice Ice Cream products are carried by small businesses, like a sari-sari store, a small café shop, like Munchers Café, or a small restaurant, mostly located around the vicinity of a school because this is a sure hit among students. 

Unlike buying Magnolia or Selecta products, you do not need to go to a supermarket and make a queue, forming a long line to buy one stick of Aice ice cream.


Munchers Café sells all the flavors available from the lone distributor in Negros Occidental. It replenishes as soon as a flavor is sold out. 

There are crispies, milk sticks, and fruit-flavored varieties, so ice cream fanatics have plenty of flavors to select from. Additional flavors may soon be available such as the one in cone or cup.

What do we have for Magnolia or Selecta? In SaveMore Talisay, where we usually do our grocery shopping, I can almost count the flavors in my fingers and you have to skim through three layers of containers to see the different flavors.

Such a waste of time and inconvenience since you have the tendency to numb your fingers if those stay long inside the freezer. 

There are still more flavors to watch out for from Aice Ice Cream. More flavors will soon be sold at Munchers Café such as the Cone Taro or the Chocolate Cup. 

So munchers, keep coming back at the café or LIKE and FOLLOW us on Facebook by clicking this link:

Thursday, October 24, 2019


Category-defining foldable device inspires new mobile experiences with custom UX, mobility and powerful multitasking

Following the successful launch of the Samsung Galaxy Fold last month where it sold out in a number of countries, Filipino consumers now get to take part in unfolding the future of devices as Samsung brings this new category of mobile technology to the Philippine shores soon. 

Galaxy Fold was designed to inspire new experiences: When closed, users can access essentials on the cover display comfortably with one hand, and when opened, they can explore new ways to multitask, watch videos, play games, and more, on its immersive 7.3-inch Infinity Flex Display.[1]

During the past several months, Samsung has been refining the Galaxy Fold to ensure it delivers the best possible experience. Not only did Samsung improve the Galaxy Fold’s design and construction, but also took the time to rethink the entire consumer journey.

“The category-defining Galaxy Fold is a device that defies the barriers of traditional smartphone design. Now, we’re excited to release this pioneering mobile technology, and allow consumers to experience it for themselves,” said DJ Koh, President and CEO of IT & Mobile Communications Division, Samsung Electronics. “Consumers have responded positively to larger screens, and the Galaxy Fold’s revolutionary form factor offers a bigger, more immersive screen without sacrificing portability. This is what we call innovation of new mobile experience in action.”

First-of-its-Kind User Experience

The Galaxy Fold combines users’ favorite smartphone and tablet features to deliver a new kind of mobile device and a first-of-its-kind user experience—from a new form factor and materials to its unique foldable UX, versatile camera and premium performance. Samsung worked alongside partners to create an entirely new UX that will change the way mobile devices are used and to take full advantage of the foldable design with its cover and main displays. As a result, the device opens up new possibilities for users.

A new dawn in display technology: the foldable Infinity Flex Display.

The Galaxy Fold transforms how users capture, share, and edit mobile content. When closed, you can shoot a quick video, and then simply open the device to watch it on a larger screen—with App Continuity, the video seamlessly transitions from the cover display to the main display. 

With Multi-Active Window, you can run multiple apps at once in real-time and effectively multitask: Edit footage, browse through the photo gallery for still shots, and read emails from friends and co-workers, all at the same time.

The Galaxy Fold is pioneering the seamless integration of hardware and software for a foldable device. Use up to three apps simultaneously and revolutionize the way you multitask

With a 5G-ready option, Galaxy Fold users in select markets can take full advantage of their carriers’ fastest speeds. 

The Galaxy Fold 5G harnesses the full power of next-generation connectivity for streaming and downloading high-resolution videos and other content, as well as graphics-heavy games, at super-charged speeds. 

By allowing everyone to do more with the 7.3-inch Infinity Flex Display, the Galaxy Fold is changing the way people consume content and multitask.

With six pro-grade cameras, you’re sure to capture stunning photos and videos. And you can use the Infinity Flex Display as  massive viewfinder.
Every Galaxy Fold comes with exclusive access to specialized customer care services – including one-on-one access to Samsung experts, and a 24/7 support hub online or over the phone. 

Samsung will further elaborate on its plans in the Philippines to ensure every aspect of the Galaxy Fold experience is as extraordinary as the device itself.
