About UTT 2015: Most Remarkable Ultimate Taste Test Ever @AyalaMalls! (Photo Essay) 

First Harvest is a proud Filipino brand that whips up delicious home-made spreads using natural choice ingredients.

We tried their peanut spread and coco jam, we like the fact that they don't contain any artificial preservatives and extenders giving out that natural taste.

In partnership with Gawad Kalinga Enchanted Farms, they help enrich agricultural industries and provide a better quality of life to the farmers.

About UTT 2015: Most Remarkable Ultimate Taste Test Ever @AyalaMalls! (Photo Essay) 

Homegrown and locally harvested in Bicol, pili nuts are becoming a favorite nut of the Filipinos. We like the chewy texture and generous amount of nuts in each bar. The healthy walnut version is also recommended.

This homemade recipe which used to be a family dessert is now becoming a part of Filipino desserts. It's a yummy bite size dessert perfect for gifts during the holidays.

Congratulations Lolita's Nut Bar for winning the 2015 Ultimate Taste Test!

THC (Truly Home-made Chips): Best Potato and Camote Chips in Manila! #UTT2015Winner

About UTT 2015: Most Remarkable Ultimate Taste Test Ever @AyalaMalls! (Photo Essay) 

THC (Truly Home-made Chips) by Trisha is undoubtedly the best potato and camote chips in Manila made the artisanal way in small batches. The chips are thinly sliced, not too greasy and salty.

Using the THC acronym is coincidental and does not refer to its notorious meaning (tetrahydrocannabinol).

This is one of the best-kept secret potato chips in Manila and by order only when they make a fresh batch (P250/pack).

Congratulations to Trisha and THChips team for winning the 2015 Ultimate Taste Test!

KABUTEHAN: Mushroom Goodness from @GawadKalinga! #UTT2015Winner

About UTT 2015: Most Remarkable Ultimate Taste Test Ever @AyalaMalls! (Photo Essay) 

Kabutehan, is a play on words. In Filipino, it directly means a place where you grow mushrooms or "kabute". It also closely resembles "kabutihan", which means goodness. The goodness of it all comes from the Gawad Kalinga project that's helping mothers and farmers create more opportunities for themselves with the introduction of oyster mushroom farming.

As a popular superfood, oyster mushrooms are known to be nutrient-packed with benefits such as upping your immunity with Vitamin D and for having cancer-fighting properties. It also helps keep the calorie, fat and cholesterol low. 🙂

Kabutehan's creative twist of adding traditional Filipino flare to their yummy mushroom appetizers caught the attention of the foodies. Congratulations for winning the 2015 Ultimate Taste Test with a rating of 3.7!
