"Dirty ice cream" is the tastiest ice cream in the world.


Dr Abe V Rotor
Mang Tomas' ice cream is patronized by the UST community.     

Dirty ice cream - but why the clamor, the demand?
Capitalism's war on tradition, triumph of the brand.  

Maligned in misnomer, yet lives in one's childhood;

what's in a name for the tastiest ice cream in the world?

Home made it started, then rode on a fancy push cart,

Indigenous and personalized, brand of Filipino art. 

It is a link of tradition and modern, the old and young;

though endangered for now, it has a promise beyond?   

Foreign ingredients and technology, why not our own?

from farm to home, all native from ice cream to cone.

Dirty ice cream – to redeem its name by no one but us,
take it from the old, innovation, and Mang Tomas.
