The Original from the Philippines vs. The OMGpeke of the USA

Note that the Philippine brand PAMPANGA’S BEST is not the one of the OMGpeke company in the USA.

The ORIGINAL Pampanga’s Best has been in in business in the Philippines since 1967.

Do you know about the OMGpeke scandal?

It’s about a USA company that pirated the Magnolia ice-cream brand and logo from San Miguel Philippines. Filipino Americans think they’re buying the Magnolia ice cream they grew up with back home… but they are not.

Well, the very same USA company Ramar Foods filed a trademark application in the United States for the brand name “Pampanga’s Best” in the year 2000.

Pampanga’s Best is a well-known brand in the Philippines, having been in the business of making tocino and longaniza since 1967 until today.

There is NO existing relation between “Pampanga’s Best” of Ramar Foods USA and the original *Pampanga’s Best* of the Philippines.

Pindang Damulag is a Kapampangan delicacy… what the Tagalogs might refer to as Tosinong Kalabaw… Tocino is the Filipino term for any cured meat.

Into English, pindang damulag has been translated as Carabeef or Cara-beef, i.e., the meat or of the carabao, which is the domestic water buffalo of the Philippines.
