Tamarind My Bell

Tamarind My Bell (sings Tamarind my beeeell…). Ok, sorry about that.

My daughter got this from the supermarket. She says it tastes great! This was not the first time she had the drink.

Tamarind My Bell is a distinct Filipino flavor with tamarind as the base of this locally blended juice drink. Locally sourced tamarind from the provinces like Pampanga, Bulacan and Zambales, this is a refreshing drink. It tastes sweet and sour and has a blend that’s kinda unique. For those who love tamarind, a sweet and sour fruit for eating fresh or used as condiment, this is for you.

It kinda reminds me of happy times under the big sampaloc tree in the compound where my grandparents lived. The tree was a witness to our growing up years and to countless family lunches and get-togethers. It would take around 3-4 people with outstretched arms to get the span of the tree trunk. Yep, that big. Not sure though if still yields fruit because we can’t go near it anymore.

Anyway, there are still 2 or 3 more flavors from this line of blended juices and we hope to try the other two (or more!) flavors. The bottles are eco-friendly and can be reused.

My daughter gives her two thumbs up to Tamarind My Bell Locally Blended Juice Drink.
