Yes of course. Sison Ice Drop factory. I remember I and my elder brother Ricardo went there to try sale a bagful of Sison Ice Drop. We walked and vended the stuff from V G Cruz St., to Blumintritt St. We sold some 35 centavos of ice drop. We split the earnings. It was fun. It was my first direct selling experience and now i am still in sales while my brother Ricardo is now a full pledge army colonel.

SISON ice drop was a treat for us kids. We only had it during pay day! I long for the simpler times of the past.

Back in the early ’70s, I met a son of the owner, Mr. Augusto “Gus” Sison, he was a barkada of a relative of mine. I remember that Kuya Gus had a beautiful wife, a Zamboanguena I think.

Im Gus youngest daughter Ria. Dad died over 30 years ago. My 3 older sisters live in US now and I live in Australia. Nice to know some people still remembers the ice cream factory and Dad.
