      Sugar free is unheard of in most part of the Philippines, and although our population consumes tons of ice cream annually, there are only two brands to choose from. My parents don’t eat ice cream a lot. I don’t know why but they never shared their children’s passion for sweetened cold dairy products. I have never seen them eat ice cream until summer of 2006.

      My oldest brother has always been tasked to bring dessert for the annual Christmas party slash family reunion. That year he brought gallons and gallons of ice cream.

      It was Arce.

      And it was sugar free. And best of all it had weird flavors. There’s pistachio, almonds and chips, brownies and coffee.

      My sisters and I looked in amazement because we’ve never tasted Pistachio flavored ice cream before. I know, we must sound like we live in the mountains. But most Filipinos are not really comfortable eating anything that they haven’t seen on TV so there are not a lot of flavors to choose from here.

      So you can just imagine how we gobbled up all that ice cream. Even my ...

      • dad enjoyed it and asked my brother where he bought it. As for my mom, she’s diabetic is unwilling to try the ice cream although it said sugar free.

        She’s just cautious but we saw my dad put a spoonful in her mouth, and we all laughed because she looked like she was ready to die. But when she tasted it, she said it was good. The small kids on the other hand were a bit wary about trying out something that wasn’t familiar.

        But it’s ice cream, and all kids love ice

        cream. My little nephew asked what sugar free meant, and I just told him that it meant it didn’t have sugar and was less fattening. A party in our family isn’t really complete without ice cream.

        And since then we’ve only bought Arce. It is more expensive that the other brands, but it sure tastes a hundred times better. Although when I read the label and saw it was made my buffalo milk, I nearly fainted.

        But it’s cool, I just focus on how it tastes like and not think about how they milked the buffalo.

    why did they sold the name selecta to rfm?
    Galega says :

    It is all a business reason. Selecta was acquired by RFM in 1990. Five years later, the owner of Selecta started their own brand - Arce Dairy.

    In January 1990, RFM Corporation acquired the Selecta brand from Arcecon Dairy Products, Inc. (successor-in-interest to the Selecta business) and established Selecta Dairy Products, Inc. to take over the production of Selecta ice cream. Under RFM ownership, the recipe of Selecta ice cream was improved and aggressively marketed, posing a serious challenge to then market leader, Magnolia.
