Quick bite of the Dark Chocolate Fudgee Barr

Sabi nina Ryan Bang at Luis Manzano sa commercial, ito raw ay isang "delicious cake with rich choco filling."

Well, hindi delicious yung cake at wala itong filling. Hindi masarap yung chocolate flavor. Tapos wala talagang filling na lumabas. Naubos na namin yung cake, wala pa ring palaman na lumabas.

O-Barr sa sarap?! Hindi. Hinding hindi!

Try it and judge for yourself. Better yet, don't!

First sip of the Nescafé Gold Cappuccino

It's a premix coffee powder made with finely ground roasted beans.

The coffee is perfectly balanced: the coffee is not too bitter, the milk is creamy enough, and the froth is just right, making the drink live up to its Cappuccino name. Not bad at all!

Try it and judge for yourself.

First sip of the Nescafé Gold White Espresso

It's an instant coffee mix made with finely ground, roasted Arabica beans.

The coffee is bold and deep, perfectly complemented by a background creaminess. Plus, the texture is silky and frothy. It would've been perfect if not for the sugary aftertaste.

Try it and judge for yourself.

First bite of the Taco Bibimbowl

A new rice dish by BonChon.

Beans, nacho chips, white onions, tomatoes, taco sauce, and meat (Bulgogi beef, fried chicken, or fried fish), all on top of rice.

MASARAP! The Tex-Mex flavors are authentic; the dish is smoky, spicy, and a bit sweet. Plus, the play on textures! 

Tip: choose Bulgogi beef as the meat, for a sweetness that complements the taco spices. Also, put this dish inside a tortilla wrap and make a burrito!

An order costs Php 99.

Try it and judge for yourself.

Quick bite of the KitKat Green Tea Doughnut

A yummy treat from Krispy Kreme.

A doughnut filled and topped with green tea cream, with an inserted stick of Green Tea KitKat. Flavors are authentic. Nothing too sweet. The bread is fresh.

All in all, delicious!

A piece costs Php 48.

First bite of the Sisig and Adobo Buns

Bagong meryenda mula sa Max's!

Ang Sisig Bun ay isang mahabang pandesal na may palamang sisig. Masarap naman. Ayos yung timpla ng sisig, lasang lutong bahay. Hindi nga lang maanghang (sayang). Nangingibabaw yung asim ng kalamansi. Ayos din yung tinapay, malambot at hindi masyadong matamis. Ang reklamo ko lang: kakaunti yung palaman. Sa gitna lang meron. 

Ang Adobo Bun naman ay isang malaking pabilog na pandesal na may palamang adobo. Hindi tulad ng Sisig Bun, mas marami itong palaman. Yung adobo, malasa naman. Lutang yung lasa ng atay at ng dahon ng laurel. All in all, pwede na.

Php 50 ang isang piraso ng anumang Bun.

Try them and judge for yourself.

First bite of the Strawberry Cream Cheese Stix

A new snack offering from Auntie Anne's!

They're bread sticks filled with cream cheese and strawberry jam.

Delicious! The high-quality, fresh bread is crispy and crusty on the outside, but soft on the inside. The filling is teeming with flavors that live up to the treat's name: the cheese is indeed creamy and has the right amount of subtle saltiness. The strawberry jam is not too sweet and its tastes is not that of cough syrup.

An order costs Php 90.

Try it and judge for yourself.

First sip of the Sparkling Iced Coffee Lemonade

A new cold drink from Starbucks y'all!

It's carbonated lemonade mixed with coffee.

It doesn't taste bad, not at all. The citrus and coffee flavors blend well. It's just a little weird though to drink cold coffee with some fizz.

A Grande cup costs Php 140.

Try it and judge for yourself.

First bite of the Garlic & Cheese Jolly Crispy Flavored Fries

A new Jolly Crispy Fries variant from Jollibee.

Delicious! Maganda yung kombinasyon nung garlic at cheese; hindi nagsasapawan yung dalawang flavor. And the taste is not overpowering. Sana nga lang, hindi na inaasinan yung fries kasi ang lakas manapaw ng alat ng iodized salt.

A Regular-sized order costs Php 40.

Try it and judge for yourself.

First lick of the Ubebe It's You Cornetto ice cream

Ube and Leche Flan ice cream, with white chocolate bits. 

Ang sarap! The flavors are authentic! Ubeng ube at lecheng leche! 😛 

Sa sarap nito, mapapakanta ka ng 🎶Ubebe It's You! You're the one I love! You're the one I need!🎶

Try it and judge for yourself.

Quick bite of the Choco Mallow Pie

It's Jollibee's chocolate pocket pie crust filled marshmallow cream and dark chocolate sauce.

Ang sarap! Tama lang ang tamis at yung pait ng chocolate. Yung marshmallow cream naman, hindi nakakasuya. Yung crust, masarap din, at malutong!

In short, this pie is panalo!

A piece costs Php 32.

Try it and judge for yourself.

First sip of the Summer Guava

It's one of the Coconut Fruit Refreshers of Jamba Juice

It's made with coconut water, guava juice, pineapple sherbet, peaches, and strawberries. 

Delicious, vibrant, and truly refreshing. The guava flavor though can hardly be sensed; the taste of the peaches overpowers everything, which is not bad honestly. Then again, the drink shouldn't be called "Guava."

Try it and judge for yourself.

First bite of the Cheddar and Sour Cream Shake Shake Fries

Another new Shake Shake Fries flavor from McDonalds.

Masarap! Ayos yung combination nung dalawang lasa. Hindi sila nagsasapawan. The cheese has the right creaminess, while the sour cream has the right sharpness. Panira lang yung asin ng french fries.

Pero may mas masarap sa Cheddar and Sour Cream Shake Shake Fries...Cheddar and Sour Cream Hashbrowns! Yum!

Try this treat and judge for yourself.

First slice of the Tiramisu Mille Crepes

A new Mille Crepes variant from PaperMoon Cafe!

Thin sheets of crepe, layered with mascarpone cheese, with a coffee-liqueur-flavored chiffon center, then topped with French cocoa dust.

DELICIOUS! The flavors are authentically Tiramisu, with the right cheese creaminess and and right strength of caffeine. Plus, the treat is not sweet.

It is arguably PaperMoon's best Mille Crepe to date.

A slice costs Php 225.

Try it and judge for yourself.

First bite of the Creamy Truffle Shake Shake Fries

It's the latest Shake Shake Fries variant from McDonalds.

The powder indeed has creamy and truffle elements. They are however too subtle and are quickly overpowered by saltiness. 

But at Php 65, sige, pwede na. Mali naman din kasi mag-expect ng good truffle flavor for that price.

Try it and judge for yourself.

First lick of the Magnum Red Velvet

It's the latest Magnum variant by Selecta.

It's red velvet ice cream with cream cheese swirl, inside a Belgian white chocolate shell.

The Belgian chocolate is too sweet. And the ice cream? Bland! We can't sense the red velvet component, nor the cream cheese.

All in all, this one is a letdown.

A stick costs Php 60.

Try it and judge for yourself.
