I chose these subjects because they bring me back to the early 1990s, when these things were my ultimate comfort foods.
I loved these things because of the powdered sugar. I love that the outside is tough but the inside is moist and soft. I get to lick my sweet fingers as a finisher. They don’t make them as good anymore.
Dunkin Donuts Choco Honey Dipped
What I am most thankful for the last year is the invention of Big Dunk here in the Philippines. This snack never changed its taste. I still love this, though I have to admit I haven’t eaten this as much. I guess when you grow older, you can’t help but keep track at the amount of sugar you consume in a day.
Lala Chocolate Snack
I remember the old lady that sells this thing for 25c a piece. The wrapper has changed and now, it has an ube (purple yam) variant. That one doesn’t taste as good; it’s predominantly artificial flavoring. But this…. still the same after all these years.
KitKat Snack Bar
I remember this the most because while Pringles Cheese has lesser flavoring and M&Ms had oilier shell coating, this is just the same. Have a break, have a KitKat. Still the same. I remember my lola getting me this after work, with a heavy heart of course. She’d much rather get me the banana cue from the hamlet. She gets me both. :)
For some reason, I remember my lolo. And I miss him so much. I never stopped.
