In no particular order, here are our dessert favorites this 2016:

SM North Food Trip 3: Twisted Candy

One Jar, PhP 100 for 70g and PhP 225 for 175g

After a filling dinner at Brickfire and Buffalo’s Wings N’ Things, we walked to SM The Block from SM North Annex. We went to Twisted Candy. The candies that are being sold there are made on the spot. It makes you wonder how they were able to come up with such designs on those candies. You can check out this Instagram video by Sharlyne. 🙂 Continue reading “SM North Food Trip 3: Twisted Candy”

Inside J.Co Donuts & Coffee Eastwood

It was my first time to visit JCo Donuts and Coffee in Eastwood to attend a media launch and I was glad to know that this particular branch is big! I actually like how spacious it is.

Yummy Ice Cream from Picket Fence Milk and Ice Cream Bar

Picket Fence Ice Cream

The temperature has been really high the past few days and I usually tend to look for something cold to eat or drink. Last Saturday, I went to SM The Block to try out Picket Fence Milk and Ice Cream Bar with Sharlyne and her Mom. It was actually our first time to try out their ice cream. I asked the crew some questions and I learned that their ice cream products are imported from Australia. I also learned that Picket Fence is a local brand and is not a franchise from Australia.

Some Bacolod Pasalubong Treats

Napoleones at Virgie's
Virgie’s Napoleones

My father has been to Bacolod several times. And every time he comes back to Manila, I’d expect him to be back with several packs of Piaya from BongBong’s which most people buy as a “pasalubong”. If you would like something different, we suggest boxes of Napoleones from Virgie’s. Continue reading “Some Bacolod Pasalubong Treats”

Strawberry Sundae, 25 pesos

Finally, me and Sharlyne were able to try Jollibee’s Strawberry Sundae. Just like the chocolate variant, their strawberry sundae uses the same soft-serve vanilla ice cream topped with strawberry syrup and some strawberry bits. Their strawberry sundae is indeed for someone who has a sweet tooth. 😉 Sundaes, ice creams and other cold desserts are included in my list of comfort foods. And because you might be stressed of thinking what to do this Christmas, we’re giving away something for our dear readers everyday courtesy of Jollibee. The contest shall start tomorrow and it will run until Sunday. 😉

Sophie’s Mom is not just your ordinary neighborhood bakery and confectionery. It’s located at Aranga cor. Santol St. in San Antonio Village, Makati City. Even if it’s located in a residential area, I would go out of my way to buy some red velvet cupcakes and Spanish bread which can normally be bought in our neighborhood bakery.

The only food I eat from Max’s Corner Bakery is the Caramel Bars. It’s the family’s favorite dessert at Max’s. I haven’t tried the other sweet treats that they’re offering. Just a few weeks ago, me and Sha were able to sample their cupcakes. We even decorated our own cupcake as part of the activity. 😀 Continue reading “Cupcakes at Max’s Corner Bakery”

Chewy Junior: Not your Ordinary Cream Puff

Box of 3, 109 pesos

Chewy Junior is not your typical cream puff. One can easily tell just by looking at it. Chewy Junior cream puffs are crisp on the outside. However, once your teeth goes deeper on it, you’ll notice that it’s soft and chewy. Continue reading “Chewy Junior: Not your Ordinary Cream Puff”
