A homegrown beverage brand called Locally is now serving delicious juice drinks in fruit flavors most of us have just only imagined in the past. We may have love orange and mango juices served usually to us in restaurants or bought from the groceries, but mangosteen and sineguelas, these are exciting Pinoy fruit flavors we will all love to try.
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).
As for the Merci Buco line, there are 3 variants: Pandan, Lychee and Coconut Water. The Merci Buco line boasts of being the First Eco-Certified Organic Cocowater in the Philippines (USDA approved).
Aside from the unique and refreshing taste of Locally juice drinks, this gives an opportunity for us moms to introduce new fruit flavors to members of the family. Sometimes, children or even adults only learn to appreciate fruits once they tasted them. Better than all these, All Locally juices are good sources of Vitamin C. As for the Merci Buco Line, the coconut water is gluten free, not from concentrate, non-GMO, no fat nor cholesterol and a good source of electrolytes.
It’s also high time that we give more love to our own local flavors and contribute even a little by supporting our local industry.
