Husband spent some of his childhood days in their compound in Cubao and he used to tell me about their Sunday trips to Magnolia Flavor House. The space being occupied by Robinson's Magnolia used to be Magnolia's, the ice cream company, compound where they have their factories and offices. Then they merged with Nestle and I still remember when I was in college that I used to pass by this place while riding the LRT Line 2 and a big NESTLE signage was present. Then, it was turned into Robinson's Magnolia.
Husband was very delighted to know that Robinson's Management decided to put up a Magnolia Flavor House in the mall. When we were there, he made sure to bring the kids and see if they still have his all-time childhood favorite ice cream - Ernie and Bert.
The place was huge with lots of tables and chairs. They offer more than just ice cream - they have pasta sandwiches and even some rice meals. It was so good to know that they kept the old ice cream menu and so, Ernie and Bert was our order.

Nothing special with the ice cream - your usual Magnolia Ice Cream Classics - Strawberry and Ube, dressed up to look jolly. Colorful candies and candy sprinkles, cones and whipped cream made up the whole thing. I have to admit that I kinda liked the presentation. We all shared this order. The kids enjoyed it while the husband kept on telling us happy stories.
Supposed to be 4 stars but taking 1 star because it was so hard to get the attention of their staff! The place was also so hot when we were there. I don't know if it's usually like that or it was just one hot summer day.
P.S. This ice cream creation is listed as "Ermie and Bert" instead of "Ernie and Bert" maybe because of legal reasons. LOL
3 out of 5 Stars for Magnolia Flavor House!
