Are you still supporting your local vendors and small businesses? I hope you are especially this Christmas season. We need to help each other and together we can get through it. And in case you are on the lookout for new local products to support, here are two classic snacks you will love.
You’ll never know when will a great blessing will come knocking to you. I come across an online concert on Facebook a month before where to my wonder it had a raffle. I hope and pray that I will win while I was choosing which prizes I like to have. After several weeks when someone told me I won, no prize came. I let it go because it’s no big deal. But last Friday there’s something that happened.
From Ojet’s Lecheng Maja Blanca to Lecheng Inutak, The Grocer by OLM now offers authentic Puto Bumbong just in time for the start of the Christmas season. Yes, Christmas starts early in the Philippines making it one of the longest Christmas seasons in the world. I mean come on, who wouldn’t get excited in counting down 100 days before Christmas? With what’s happening in 2020, I believe you need something great to look forward. The question now is, are you ready to taste Christmas? You see, Puto Bumbong is a Filipino purple rice cake steamed in bamboo tubes traditionally sold during the Christmas season. But since we need to stay home, let me share with you a great solution.
Pizza is one of the most popular food in the world. I think it’s because people love the combination of bread, cheese and tomato sauce which is the base of any pizza. With that, you can add in various ingredients that suit your palette. You can go all veggies, all meat or whatever you are craving! Another great thing about pizza is you can eat it whenever you want. Now it all goes down to where you should buy it and how much you are willing to spend. If you’re on a budget, I suggest getting yours from Shenn’s.
I think we can agree that everyone loves cookies. However, not all love those crunchy or thin ones. Some prefer soft and chewy cookies. If you’re one of them, I’m happy to introduce to you Chookies’ Baked Goodies: All their cookies are freshly baked; not to mention, chewy and loaded with chocolate chips. Though it’s loaded, the cookies aren’t that sweet. Chookies’ Baked Goodies are made with a low sugar level without sacrificing quality and taste.
