Everyone looks a rags-to-riches story. Started in Dec 2017 by Miki and Ivan Velasquez, they poured their heart and soul in their unique twist on the mango float in a cup. They went from not having their own home to live in with their two children, to being successful entrepreneurs and co-owners of a one of the most anticipated desserts in the Philippines. And it’s telling how popular it is since people were willing to wait four hours and thirty minutes for a mango float. You didn’t read that wrong.

Could this be the best mango float in Manila?

Manila Creamery announce the latest arrival of their take on mango float in a cup in style! Their concoction is made with layers of Manila Creamery’s mango ice cream, pandan whipped cream, graham crackers, and an addition of crumbly Biscoff biscuits! Cubes of fresh mango sit on top of the float with a drizzling of Biscoff syrup.

One word – yum!

4. Pan De Manila

Where: See their website

Yup, Manila’s favorite panaderia now offers mango floats! Pan De Manila’s mango float comes kitted out with the expected graham biscuits and fresh mango slices. But instead of vanilla ice cream, you get a serving of sweet coconut ice cream! If you’re not a fan of mango, then try the Avocado Float or Strawberry Float for good measure!

5. Iyah’s Ice Cream Milkshake
