Polvoron



Almost two months now when Mark and Egay arrived here in Saudi Arabia from the Philippines, special polvoron of goldilocks was the pasalubong for me and today i ate the last piece of yummy polvoron.I love it and i will miss it.

Polvoron is a special blend of toasted flour, milk, butter and sugar, cooked and then molded. Available in special and these flavored variants - cashew, peanut, crisped rice (pinipig), marble and cookies and cream.

Polvoron. So simple. So yummy. So reminds-me-of-my-childhood fun. There’s a game we used to play when we eat polvoron. The contestants put a piece of the treat in their mouths, and the first one who can produce a whistle wins.

Hello, kamusta na? My husband likes Goldilocks polvoron. Since we don't have Goldilocks here, I make my own. I have the recipe in my food blog HERE

Btw, paki-add naman yung dalawa kong blogs sa list mo. I've added you already. Salamat!

Hello, magpabili ka sa nanay mo sa Phils. pwede naman siguro ipadala yan dyan. O di kaya, gamitin mo yung cookie cutter as mold and refrigerate before you eat it. Para maghold ang shape, i-pack mo maigi yung polvoron while in the cookie cutter. Hope it works!

Nakakapasok pala ang polvoron sa KSA?! Naalala ko nung unang dating ko rito sa Australia, marami akong dalang Goldilocks Polvoron. Binasura ng customs kasi milk product sya.

Pero bago nila itinapon, humingi pa ako ng dalawa. Kinain ko doon sa counter ng customs...

Sayang talaga! Kung alam ko lang inubos ko na yun lahat sa eroplano.
