Digman’s Special Halo-Halo

Ma’am Donita Gonzales-Manumbas, granddaughter of the much-disputed “original” Digman halo-Halo inventor, Mrs. Raymunda Ugalde-Toledo, was quick to detail its humble beginnings reaching as far back as the early 1930’s (they could not recall exactly when). Aling Raymunda ventured to sell her cute halo-halo confections in used evap milk cans. It was a huge puzzlement that she was able to fit in them all of those little, edible jewels.

Soon, their famed evap cans received an upgrade in the form of old coffee glasses. Each cooler was sold for 50 centavos by the 1970’s.

Nowadays Ma’am Donita, her brother Edilberto “Kuya Boy” Gonzales and his wife Minda are the ones running this business that has sent all of their children to school. Cooking the ingredients fresh non-stop and churning out about 400 to 500 glasses a day, they say, has now become both a science and an art to them
