Red Velvet Timtams!

As if Timtams aren't sinful, delectable & snack review-worthy enough, they come up with this.

This week is definitely all about red velvet. Last Sunday I tried Red Velvet Cookies by Kooky Pam, and now this! Another great snack find from The Gourmet Grocer, Red Velvet Timtams are super heaven sent. Opening it releases its vacuumed aroma. It smells like cake!

This Adriano Zumbo - Timtam collaboration should be a staple in shelves and not just for a limited time. Lucky Kiwis!

The chocolate covering melted everywhere, but I don't care! I got to see the redness of the cookies. 

As one would expect from any Timtam creation, biting into this snack is a real treat. You'll definitely love the crunch, the familiar (but better!) red velvet taste and the cream cheese center as much as I did.

And the best part about finishing (yes, I finished all of it, huhu) a pack of Red Velvet Timtams? The melted chocolate all over the plastic container that I'll be licking after this.

Available at The Gourmet Grocer for only Php 180!

Red Velvet Cookies (and more!) by Kooky Pam Pastries!

When it comes to cookies, I like mine chunky, moist, without nuts or oats except for chocolate chips and if possible, with a gooey center. I love cookies from CBTL, Starbucks (have you tried their sinful Salted Caramel Cookie?), The French Baker and recently, Kooky Pam Pastries. 

Kook Pam Pastries are gourmet cookies and you can tell that by the flavors that they whip up in their kitchen. They have Regular and Premium flavors where Regular includes Dark Belgian Choco Chip, White Choco Macadamia Oat, Mocha Walnut and Oat Choco Raisin. Premium includes Red Velvet and Callebaut Almond.

3 out of 6 Kooky Pam Flavors

Over the weekend, I got try the Red Velvet Cookie and it felt like biting into a cupcake without the crumbs. I loved the generous portion of gooey cream cheese center too! I haven't tried other Red Velvet Cookies, and for a first timer, I'm smitten by this one! It's so soft and moist, I think I'll make whoopie pies out of these!

A Box of 5 Regular Cookies is Php200 (Regular) and Php225 (Premium); a Box of 12 Cookies is Php480 (Regular) and Php540 (Premium). Great for gourmet snacking event souvenirs!

New and Interesting Snack Finds from The Gourmet Grocer

If anyone asks me what my dream job is, it is to be a snack taster/tester/reviewer while sporting a really hot bod. Is it even possible to munch on anything covered in chocolate without the bulging tummy?

Sancho Churreria for 2014

I swore to myself last year in February 13 that that day will be the last time I will get churros from Sancho's. But then again, here I am blogging about it. Their churros con chocolate are so damn goooood I had to get 2 orders so there really won't be a next time XD

Churros con Chocolate Galore

If only it won't make me look more PG than I already am, I would drink the cup of hot chocolate!

And this slice of Brazo de Mercedes.

Special Flavors of Pringles for Sale!

I'm more of a cookies kind of girl than a chips lover. Maybe it's because I'm very careful of my sodium intake, but sugar still get the best of me every time. 

It's a thrill though that I got to try these wonderful Pringles flavors over the weekend, and snagged a potential on-the-side business.

I'm selling these for Php 100 a pop! Leave a comments for inquiries or for discounts :)

Where to Eat at SM Megamall Fashion Hall!

Ahhhh isn't it so nice to appreciate SM Megamall for a different reason? In my experience, for instance, there's more to SM Megamall now aside from Yabu and Forever 21. Haha!

The Fashion Hall at SM Megamall is not only home to popular and some-never-heard-of international apparel brands (H&M is so coming soon!), but also to great foreign eats that a foodie like me will easily give in. It's an exciting turn of events as more and more restaurants are finally opening and calling Manila their home. Here are some of the many great restos you can eat when you visit the distinct Fashion Hall at SM Megamall.

1. 8 Cuts Burgers - For salads, burgers, fries and super sinfully delicious desserts and milkshakes. Located at the 3rd floor.

2. St. Marc Cafe - Perfect dessert stop for green tea lovers and admirers of Japanese baked goods. Don't miss their famous Chococros in Chocolate-Coffee and Strawberry Daifuku. Located at the ground floor.

3. Tim Ho Wan - make sure to try these Baked Pork BBQ buns when you visit. It's been more than 2 months (I think), but the lines are still crazy before you can have a table. Just goes to show that Tim Ho Wan is worth the wait. Located at the ground floor.

4. Lucca Bakery - for some coffee-based refreshments and a wide assortment of finely baked goodies. You have to love the mason jars they serve their refreshments in. Located at the 4th floor near the rink.

I'm trying out Ippudo this coming Friday with friends and I can't wait to write about it. Thanks to the guys at Yabu for finally bringing one of the world's renowned ramen joints in Manila.Toodles!
