Handcrafted Ice Cream | Papa Diddi's

Handcrafted with passion, that's how Papa Diddi's produces their homemade ice cream. With the selection of freshest ingredients, they ensure to bring the best flavors in their very own Creamery. All of their products are produced in small batches to guarantee the freshness of every flavor.

Three years ago, Papa Diddi's in Maginhawa opened up their store to share handcrafted ice cream to the people. Their story of how they started inspires me: Papa Diddi was a father and a lawyer who had a passion for producing ice cream for the family. And now, they share every scoop of it with passion and creativity.

Luckily, I've got an invite from looloo team for another looloo rendezvoos here. I was excited because it was my first time to try Papa Diddi's ice cream though I heard about this place a couple of times.

For this event, we tried the following:

ICE CREAM BUN (Roasted Coconut with Sunflower Seeds) P145.00

ICE CREAM & CHURROS (Roasted Forbidden Rice) P145.00

ICE CREAM NEST (Creamy Pumpkin, Tres Leches, Malagos) P145.00 for the 3 Scoops + P35.00 for the nest

For this, you can select any ice cream flavor that you want but as per our experience, we let them suggest their best sellers. Among the three, the ice cream and churros stood out because of how the flavors complimented well with each other. It's like warm vs. cold that everyone seemed to like. For the ice cream flavor, I found the Roasted Forbidden Rice interesting for my preference. It tasted like "Pinoy biko" because of the roasted chewy rice flavor. Everyone also liked Tres Leches because the taste was similar to sweet pastillas.

AFFOGATO (Barako plus your choice of ice cream) P120.00

You can also order pint size of their ice cream for P325.00.

Toppings are only P15.00 each.

We tried other flavors as well but one common factor of each ice cream flavor is how they made them so creamy with every scoop. The secret? They use carabao's milk in every flavor that they handcrafted. It's healthier and has a lot of nutritional benefits than the cow's milk.

Aside from these, one good thing about Papa Diddi's is how they help farm communities across the country by outsourcing their ingredients to them. Yes, that's right. All of their ingredients are 100% locally produced to help farms like in Sagada, Benguet, Bicol, Davao, and other areas. It's a positive change in supporting the local industry of farms in our own country.

If you are also interested, Papa Diddi's recently launched their "Papa Diddi's Pint Subscription". It's the first ice cream subscription in the country (like Netflix but ice cream) where you can get 2 handmade pints of ice cream every month that will be delivered right in front of your doorstep.

The flavor? It's a surprise for everyone to have an experience to never-before-seen flavors that will definitely give you an excitement.

3 Months: P650/month 
6 Months: P625/month 
9 Months: P600/month 
12 Months: P550/month

Producing an ice cream is not easy peasy, but actually a combination of science and art. Thanks to Mr. Paul Perez who continue to produce exciting flavors on their handcrafted ice cream in continuation of his father's legacy. I definitely learned a lot from this event. Thanks, looloo team and Papa Diddi's for the amazing rendezvoos.

My son enjoying his ice cream!
