When our dear neighbors, who also happened to be my brother-in-law and sister gave us each a piece of this, we wouldn’t have known we’d swoon for Gigi Gaerlan’s Custaroons. The packaging is classy, sure. But the custaroon itself does not exactly look extraordinary.
That is until our first bite of Gigi’s Custaroons. Our new food fix is nothing short of extraordinary. Yes, despite my first impression of it as an oversized and underbaked macaroon.
Gigi’s Custaroons is a fusion of macaroons and custard. Unlike your usual chewy macaroons with slightly golden brown top, custaroons are made of soft and creamy, melt-in-your-mouth flan topped with a chewy, buttery desiccated coconut crust that’s perfectly baked to a pale light yellow.
Box of 6 of Half Cheese and Half Original sells for P200.
It is the yummiest dessert I have had in a long while! And I can’t believe it has been around for years! We loved it so much that we just had to swing by the day after at the parking lot of the St. Pio Chapel Compound.
It did not take long until we got ourselves a box of Custaroon Poppers too.
Assorted Custaroon Poppers Box of 25 retails for P350
The different Custaroon Popper variants are: Original, Coffee, Green Tea and Chocolate. As with the classy and very elegant packaging of Custaroons, Custaroon Poppers comes in a regal packaging. Custaroon Poppers come with this golden sachet of premium chocolate powder. It is meant to be sprinkled over the poppers but I helped myself with it straight up. Haha! Chocoholics do that all the time.
Custaroon Poppers are basically bite sized custaroons coated in premium chocolate powder. It is a chocoholic’s heaven in a box! I love it to bits! Hubby loves the Custaroons more though.
