Kristina's Inutak is an inspiring example of food entrepreneurs embracing their heritage by showcasing their own sweet local delicacy (in this case Taguig), packaging it well and marketing through local food markets and social media.
So, what's Inutak like? Marry the smoothness of tibuk tibuk (but use coconut milk instead of carabao's milk) and the flavors of sapin sapin, and you'll get this wonderful treat that is best eaten warm and topped with homemade vanilla ice cream. :) Most foodies prefer the original flavor.
It's a two-time winner of the Ultimate Taste Test series (UTT7.0 and UTT8.0). Congratulations!

WHAT’S THE STORY BEHIND YOUR FOOD?
We come from a big family in Taguig that really loves food. Almost all members of the family cook. We have lots of unique dishes actually, but this sweet local delicacy is the ONE that we decided to introduce since only very few knew about it. (Since) it is the favorite dessert of the Marcelino siblings, we came up (with the) idea of introducing it to the market. Sayang naman ang sarap at linamnam niya kung kaunti lang nakakaalam, so why not share it (with) others? It is really a must-try delicacy for everybody. That is...our mission.
Since it's an old recipe passed down from our great grandparents for four generations, we decided to improve and continue the legacy of spreading (its) good taste for everybody to enjoy -- hopefully not only in the Philippines, but also abroad. It’s a delicacy made from simple ingredients like sticky rice, coconut milk, and sugar.
For those with adventurous palates, we also developed different flavors like Inutak Tablea. We also are developing one for (the) health-conscious, such as Inutak Organic and Inutak Lite. Maybe we could release them all by next year. For now, let us enjoy Inutak Classic and Inutak Queso De Bola.
We have two sizes available. The big one is 9” in diameter and the smaller one is 4.8” in diameter. Two flavors are out in the market already. The Inutak Classic is priced at P350 for the big one and P120 for the small size. Queso De Bola is available at P380 for the big one and P150 for the small size. By the way, try it with Ice Cream.
