Magnolia

Magnolia is a Philippine ice-cream brand that was commercially established in the year 1925. It has belonged to the San Miguel company for most of its history.

In the 1970s, a totally unaffiliated Filipino American family in California USA started marking their own ice-cream products with the “Magnolia” name in order to surf on the goodwill that the original Magnolia had developed among Filipinos from the old country.

The Filipino American family Quesada, operating as the Ramar company, filed a trademark application claiming the Magnolia mark for their exclusive use in the United States. The fact that San Miguel had been using the Magnolia name and logo for much longer in the Philippines and was the originator of that name and logo was irrelevant under U.S. law.

To reiterate: The Magnolia Ice Cream you see in stores in the United States is NOT in any way related to or endorsed by San Miguel Philippines, Maine Mendoza, Alden Richards or the AlDub Nation.
