Christmas is just around the corner. And what better way to show someone you care than having them bite into some delectable pastries like Pinky's goodies?
As you cruise along El Grande Ave. in BF Homes, Paranaque, you'd notice a large oval sign that hints of homemade delicacies -- those made with love, shielded from the coldness of mass-produced factory-made confections.
Pinky's Goodies boasts of delicious butterscotch bars in varied flavors -- impregnated with cashew nuts, mixed with mango bits, or infused with chocolate and even white chocolate.
Other delicacies for sale are sugary yema balls clothed in orange cellophane, cookies tainted with dates and walnuts, biscotti integrated with cranberry (ooh, makes me think of the upcoming holidays) and walnuts...
Polvoron in plain yellow dresses and the cashew variant in red garments; biscocho strips in varying shades of brown...
Thinly sliced mamon toasted with creamy butter and undulated, sweet meringue as light as cream and dark as chocolate...
But their bestsellers remain to be their butterscotch bars and with good reason. Upon opening a single foil pack, you would get a whiff of sweetness gingerly preparing you for the good that is to come. A sink of the teeth is as easy as a pie, and a split second later, your mouth is bathed in a very moist, utterly chewy, dulcet square bar that elicits the closing of your eyes so as to focus all your senses in this single piece of heavenly creation. What comes next depends on the flavor you've picked out.
The Butterscotch Bar with Cashew Nuts provides tiny bits of crunchy texture cutting the sweetness quite masterfully. Dried mango bits are sporadically tucked away inside each Mango Butterscotch Bar as well as in the Choco Mango Butterscotch, albeit the latter has some extra saccharine flavor brought about by the chocolate. My favorite would have to be the White Choco Butterscotch with its tame mellifluous taste but with the same dampish consistency. Another yummy bar is the Food for the Gods, imbued with dates and walnuts that simply spell Christmas. Each luscious bite brings you closer to the holiday spirit -- and speaking of which...
Pinky's Goodies have elegant gift boxes, perfect for this season of giving.
