While we all know that Fruit can be our best friend in replacing our heavy carbo load to a proper and healthy diet, it has been recognized as a good source of vitamins and minerals. So I make sure that every time I travel, I always prioritize on having blended or fresh juices over soda.
But you know what, I can always compare and find my way back to our local fruits in terms of its unique taste, from our sweet Mango to Dalandan up to Mangosteen and Sineguelas. Much like Filipinos’ desire for discovering, exploring and being reacquainted within our own shores comes Locally, a homegrown beverage brand that’s the first of its kind, serving unique, all-Pinoy flavors you’ve never had in juice before.
Forget the usual orange and mango flavors when it comes to local drinks. With Locally, you’re going on a taste trip around the Philippine regions with its ten (10) indigenous flavours: Mangosteen (Mangosteenie Miney Mo), Sineguelas (Save The Best for Sineguelast), Dalandan (You’ve Dalandan It Again), Tamarind (Tamarind My Bell), Guyabano (Guyabano-body But You), Calamansi (Calamansi’z The Day), Pomelo (Pomelong and Lasting Love), and Buco (Merci Buco 100% Coconut Water, Lychee, Buko Pandan).
Was very excited that there is also a Sineguelas flavor!
“There has been a resurgent advocacy promoting homegrown brands and products. The country has seen an increase in fairs selling local produce, restaurants featuring their own take on local dishes, local art and films being recognized, etc. Loving local is definitely in right now, and it’s a good thing because it enables us to support our own communities and promote Filipino pride, which is exactly what Locally is all about,” says Gretchen King, Group Product Manager – Locally.
“Each of our flavours is created from natural, homegrown fruits sourced from different parts of the country — there’s the tamarind from Central and Southern Luzon, Mangosteen from Davao, and Calamansi from Isabela, among others. We aim to raise awareness and appreciation of our local produce, and in turn, support Filipino farmers and the farming community,” she added.
Locally believes in responsible goodness: great-tasting and indigenous flavors that’s not just good for you, but good for the community too. Hosted by Sam YG, the brand introduced these flavors with an exciting game last week.
While at the colorful event by NutriAsia, I can’t help but get so much of my favorite local “kakanin” Putubongbong has been my favorite for years.
Refresh yourself, take a taste trip around the Philippines and start #LivinLovinLocally. Wait so these five are my favorite now.
And of course, these flavors are best when you’re having your Pinoy comfort food.
