Nostalgic Pinoy Snacks Reinvented

Online, Pasig City

If you grew up in the ’80s and ’90s, you probably still have the iconic tastes of your childhood cached in your memory. It was a time before tablets and smartphones when kids played outside with neighbors and saved up their baon to buy their favorite treats from sari-sari stores. White Rabbit, Iced Gems, HawHaw, and more—many of these snacks are still available in the market today, but most of them have also been transformed into unique and innovative desserts by ingenious local businesses. Try them out so you can rediscover what made you fall in love with them in the first place.

Batang ‘90s will have a blast having a trip down memory lane by tasting these sentimental treats from The Lost Bread. You might remember the snack Iced Gems with its cute biscuit base and hardened icing sugar on top. Add ice cream to these tiny treats and you'll be blown away by the ‘90s Kids Mix version of The Lost Bread. This Iced Gems ice cream even has candy sprinkles and marshmallows added to it--making it a truly decadent nostalgic treat. As a kid, you might be used to seeing a jar of Lily's Peanut Butter in your kitchen. Now, you'll be even more delighted when you see a tub of Lily’s Peanut Butter Brownie Fudge Ice Cream in your freezer. Imagine nibbling on chewy fudge-brownie chunks and roasted peanuts incorporated into the creamy peanut butter-flavored ice cream. It's definitely time to make new memories with Lily's! The Lost Bread makes use of the rectangular candy HawHaw for a coffee drink with a twist. The HawHaw Milk Cold Brew Latte has a sweet, milky taste that's hard to resist--just like the childhood candy you grew up with.

ChocNut is a classic Pinoy treat known for its crumbly texture—a result of combining crushed peanuts, milk, cane sugar, and cocoa powder to make the popular milk chocolate treat. As a beloved treat for most Filipinos, it’s no surprise that someone was inspired to turn the nutty and chocolatey goodness of ChocNut into a spread you can enjoy as much as the candy that inspired it. Enjoy it on a sandwich or dip your snacks in it; however you wish to enjoy it, you’re going to need a few jars of these if you love ChocNut!
