Giotto

Ahh dont you love it and also hate it when you discover new food that’s so yummy? I love it kasi new discovery siya but hate it coz I dont know where in the world will I find it if I crave for it.

Hannah, sister of our old friend Ritchie, sent me this choco for my birthday. Hannah is also the one who brought us to Mamou’s so her taste is impeccable, sipsip ako para padalhan ako ulit haha or baka mag introduce siya sa akin ng something new ulit.  Had a taste of it this morning and yun nga, na sad and na happy ako. I posted it sa FB and ang daming may kilala sa kanya. Am glad kilala ko na din itong si Giotto.

Gawa siya ng same company who makes Ferrero Rocher, kaya pala same taste. Per plastic stick there’s 9 pcs in it; this pack has 4 plastic stick inside. Each piece is a perfect bite, it has the good combination of hazelnut chocolate inside and crispy wafer then  covered in chopped hazelnuts & walnuts outside.

Thanks Hannah & Ritchie!

Don’t you love discovering new foodies?

Fresh Milk

June 28, 2011 § 12 Comments

I have always loved drinking bottled milk and chocolate milk. I remember the taste of Chocolait when it was still called ChocoVim. (It tasted like cocoa of Happy Lemon)

When the kid’s pedia knew we were going to Australia she said naku ang sarap ng gatas doon. Hay true nga, I can drink a liter a day if I don’t stop myself. The milk supply of Jea & Josh was easily gone because of me (Sorry Sudarios!). When we came back I wanted Kite to drink fresh milk; our pedia also told us na me and Didda should drink a glass of non fat milk everyday. Also I want to let Laya taste fresh milk na din. So off I go in my search of milk that will be delivered to us regularly. I found 2 brands that has delivery in our area and tried them both.

First I tried was Milkman’s whole milk (P180/2 liter; service and response is quick which I appreciate so much) I like their milk. Next I tried Holly’s Milk – chocolate milk (P110/liter), whole milk (P100/liter) and non fat milk (P100/liter).  I like Holly’s whole milk a bit better mas creamy eh, even their non fat tasted like fresh milk so happy ako, but Kite & I found their choco milk too sweet! Since I like their milk better I immediately re ordered for the next delivery. But I noticed the fresh milk has a tinge of sour taste a day or two after opening the bottle. So I reduce my next order to try it again.  Sadly it is the same case.  According to the distributor of Holly’s Milk we should put the milk in the coldest part not too near the ref door. So that’s what I did on their 2nd delivery but still there’s a tinge of sour taste the day after we opened a bottle which scares eh. I think maybe our ref is too small and too puno? This reminds me of why I stopped buying Hacienda Macalauan, it always spoils on me, even the small bottle, sometimes even when I consumed it the day I bought it 😦 of all the yogurt I tried theirs is the yummiest too.

I went back to Milkman and this time tried their choco milk too. Am happy that their choco milk is not as sweet and their whole milk doesn’t spoil so fast too. Problem now is their milk comes in 2 liter container which Kite can’t finish, which mean I cant order non fat for us or we’d have too much milk. Am now working out our consumption so I can place my weekly order. Another problem is I gained so much weigh since we started having fresh milk at home, but the good thing is Kite now drinks milk everyday.
