I'm sure we've all heard of food trucks. Not just on TV (especially those we see on foreign soils), food trucks has made a significant presence over the last couple of years in the metro. With its quirky names and delicious offerings, I must say that they're here to stay. Now, in comes something new. Have you ever heard of a Fruit Truck?

Let me tell you more about that.

Locally by NutriAsia, the first quirky Filipino juice line made from uniquely indigenous local fruits, launched the Locally Fruit Truck last November 24 at the 2017 BGC Passionfest.

"The Locally Fruit Truck is our modern take on the ice cream truck—which makes us jump for joy when you see it on the road or hear its bells and music play. We want Filipinos to feel that way—but at the same time celebrating our local fruits and juices, and basically just celebrating being a Pinoy," said Gretchen King, group product manager-specialty F&B at NutriAsia.

"Locally has caught everyone's attention not only due to its bright-colored and creative packaging but more so because of its fun indigenous flavors. Now, we want to bring this unique experience closer to more Filipinos by rolling out the Locally Fruit Truck starting with this launch, like how our classic ice cream trucks brought us a refreshing kind of happiness and nostalgia on its wheels, "King added.
