We took a break from food trucks and tried out Locally’s Fruit Truck instead at the 2017 BGC Passionfest. Locally served free local juices made from homegrown fruits from different regions, exclusive Pinoy mixes co-created with expert liquid chef Liquido Maestro, and other fun Pinoy treats like no other.
Other Flavors include You’ve Dalandan It Again (dalandan), Kamias You Are (kamias), Mangosteenie Miney Mo (mangosteen), Calamansi’z The Day (calamansi), SinigueLast (siniguelas), Pomelong & Lasting Love (pomelo) and Guyabano-body But You (guyabano).
Passiofest attendees not only were able to try out Locally juices for FREE but they also had the chance to try out the concoctions prepared by mixologist Kalel Demetrio aka Liquid Maestro for a minimal fee. I was able to try Locally juice drinks before and fell in love with its unique flavors especially Tamarind My Bell (tamarind).
Locally’s Fruit Truck also treated their attendees with music from singer-songwriter Quest and OPM rising artist Keiko Necesario that serenaded guests with fresh local music why they munch on fishballs, pansit, sisig tacos, kikiam and other street favorites.
“The Locally Fruit Truck is our modern take on the ice cream truck – which makes u jump for joy when you see it on the road or hear its bells and music play. We want Filipinos to feel that way – but at the same time celebrating our local fruits and juices, and basically celebrating being a Pinoy,” Gretchen King, group prodcut manager-specialty F&B at NutriAsia.
Local fruits squeezed to produce Locally Blended Juice Drinks are sourced from different parts of the country, namely tamarind from Batangas, Pangasinan, and Bulacan; calamansi from Isabela, Tarlac, and Nueva Ecija; dalandan from Laguna, and Mindoro; guyabano from Cebu and Misamis Occidental; pomelo from Davao; and siniguelas from the Negros provinces.
“Locally has caught everyone’s attention not only due to its bright-colored and creative packaging but more so because of its fun indigenous flavors.” King added. I have tried most of them except siniguelas and kamias. I still have to find a store that has them because it’s always out of stock.
The Locally Fruit Truck will go around Metro Manila’s top food parks, resto hubs, malls, and transport terminals. For updates and inquiries, visit the official Locally Facebook page – facebook.com/LocallyPH and Instagram account – @locally_ph.
