To most Filipinos, mangoes are very popular. Besides, it leads the Top 10 fruits in the Philippines, maybe because of its being sumptuous, pulpy and it packs a host of health benefits. Perhaps, that’s enough to convince local and international markets alike to try this delectable soft-served ice cream dessert called MaxiMango.
It recently held its contract signing with its fresh and young female endorser—Kathryn Bernardo. The momentous occasion was attended by the husband-and-wife entrepreneurs—Ivan and Miki Velasquez on Tuesday night, January 29 at the Crowne Plaza Manila Galleria in Quezon City.
Here are Five Reasons why fellow Pinoys go-crazy over a classic Mango Float but with a Twist of sorts:
It’s Nutritious and Delicious.
Though this tropical fruit is originally a native to India, were it was first cultivated in the Northeast India, Bangladesh and Myanmar about 25-30 million years ago. Known to be the King of Fruits and has enjoyed a prized place in the history of India and its relationship with the world. It is one of the very few fruits that gained a coveted place in Hindu religious scriptures.
The fruit is nutritious and unique in its flavor, fragrance, taste, and heath promoting qualities, making it a number one among new functional foods, often labeled as ‘super fruits’.
Affordable for Everyone.
No wonder why Filipinos don’t mind standing in long queues just to get their fill for a really affordable cold treat especially summer is fast-approaching in the country.
The popular Maxi Mango, which is ideal for non-sweet tooth customers and served in mango base with fresh slices of mangoes are available starting at Php59 (the small size); while the Mango Juice Float is priced at Php59 as well.
Only the large-size of a Mango Float is a little over Php100.
The good news is—the brand was developed by young Filipino couple from Davao.
An alumnae of Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition in 2006, Miki Arceo-Velasquez (Kim Chiu’s batch mate) is the owner of MaxiMango together with her husband Ivan.
What’s notable about the efforts of the couple—they to “create something that appeals to the A and B markets in taste and aesthetic, but can also be afforded by the C and D markets”.
Who wouldn’t support a business such as this?
Miki shared that right after high school, her former beau now her husband Ivan left for the UK. He trained and worked as a chef at a Japanese restaurant in Manchester. Four years later after Miki finished her college, she followed.
She worked in London as a caregiver while he left his job and moved to London and they ended up working for the same institution. Armed with enough savings, they returned to the country, and opened a business.
Their success story wasn’t a walk in the park, there came a time when the business they started began to crash, so she had to resort to working for a contact center and used her salary to make their business going and stay afloat.
Backed-up by Kathryn Bernardo.
The young star Bernardo of the KathNiel fame is a strong advocate for supporting Pinoy products.
Thus, when she endorses a particular brand, she makes sure that it’s Filipino-owned and promotes the ingenuity of the Filipino talent[s].
In fact, according to Kath, as soon she met with the young owners of MaxiMango—they immediately agreed to working together in making the brand a real success.
MaxiMango is under VQZ Maxi Mango and was established in December 2017. Its office address is located at Unit 6-I Three Manhattan Parkview Araneta Center in Cubao, Quezon City.

At 41, Piolo Jose Nonato Pascual or better known as PJ or Piolo in Philippine local industry is a film and television actor-singer-model-and producer—is just the perfect personality to represent IAM Worldwide’s Amazing Barley.
Pascual is perhaps the local counterpart of American actor-producer Brad Pitt. He’s oozing with those irresistible looks even with his age that could be comparable to a wine; he who has aged good and has gotten better (like how wine tastes better over the years); he gets even better reputation because of his achievements.
Staying as a sought-after personality is a challenge that Pascual has learned to embrace. Being part of the entertainment circuit, he has to keep himself in great shape by hitting the gym regularly as well as taking the needed supplements that his body needs. Even with his hectic schedules, he still manages to do some physical activities.
On December 3, at I’M Hotel in Makati, Piolo signed a contract with IMWORLDWIDE to seal his endorsement for Herb-all Amazing Pure Organic Barley.
The said health supplement drink is just one of the many products distributed by IAMWORLDWIDE and it is made from the purest Australian young Barley grass. It contains many health benefits such as strengthening the immune system, cleansing and detoxifying the body as well as regenerate damage cells and tissues. Such product is a reflection of what sort of countenance Pascual has.
