Sorbetes, also called dirty ice cream is part of anyone’s childhood in the Philippines and it symbolized the Filipino's fondness for sweet delights. Mamang sorbetero with his colorful cart full of cool “sorbetes” in flavors of chocolate, strawberry, avocado, vanilla, mango, ube and cheese are one of icons of everyday culture in the Philippines . Hearing the ring of bell means afternoon nap time is over and it’s time for merienda (snack). I recommend that you try this dirty ice cream in a monay bread (bun) if you like to eat it other than the conventional sweet cone. It’s nice to see that it's still exist as it is one of the unique and distinctly Philippine food experience that tourists can try. Just look for Mamang Sorbetero with his colorful two-wheeled cart. I hope people in this business will continue this and children and those children at heart would continue to patronized sorbetes. Thank you mamang sorbetero for reminding me of my sweet childhood memories'
