RGies butterscotch- why this soft moist and chewy treat a favorite pasalubong item from Iloilo?
Growing up in Bacolod, I’m very fond of eating butterscotch from the neighboring city Iloilo. There are two brands I swear by, and that’s Biscocho Haus and RGie’s.
Usually, you’d only get cashew’s in your butterscotch, but RGies was the first to introduce different variants from classic favorites cashew to mango, dates, choco oats, coffee, almonds, durian, lemon, banana and coffee flavor.
R and G stand for Ramon and Grace Javelosa the owner couple of RGies. It was initially RG’s, but they decided to “spell it out” when they officially had the business registered.
RGies started in a small home kitchen back in 1986, where the dad would make homemade butterscotch and give it to his co-workers in Roxas city as “pasalubong” items from Iloilo. The co-workers loved it so much that they eventually, persuaded the couple to start selling their products because they were too embarrassed to ask for more of their homemade sweets.

Iloilo City is known for its rich cultural history, art, historic churches, old mansions, picture-perfect countryside, mouthwatering seafood, and the famed Dinagyang Festival. All of these makes it a remarkable destination in Western Visayas.
With the gradual rise in business and economy in the Manduriao district, the owners of Grand Xing Imperial Hotel had a vision of bringing back the old glory of Iloilo to life.
Grand Xing Imperial Hotel, located in Iloilo’s downtown area is a modern 184-room hotel that promises its guests a premium experience at reasonable rates. We like the modern rooms, all-floor KTV bar, majestic ballrooms, and its star attraction–an infinity pool that overlooks Iloilo river.
