Jameson is the latest Gelato player that most foodies raved about in the recent UTT series. An ice cream maker even praised Jameson as having the best gelato, beating all the other ice creams in the event. 

I like their Salted Caramel & Pistachio. And because it has less butterfat than regular ice cream, you can enjoy more of the natural flavors of the ingredients.

Congrats to Jameson and good luck with the gelato business!

I never imagined Basil ice cream or Rose with Pistachio Nuts (nicknamed Nuts & Roses) to taste really good. Check out Jack Frost Premium Ice Cream flavors this Holiday Season! Congrats! 🙂

I love this new ice cream player because they are an advocate of showcasing the best ingredients and flavors of the Philippines. They ensure that they only use natural ingredients available locally, such as Carabao’s milk. I like their bold combinations of Sulu Coffee with Salted Muscovado Swirl, and Malunggay & Langka. 

Congratulations to Cream of the Crop for winning the #3 spot in the UTT XI series!

We love CINQ’s tarts because they’re proudly made using natural and local ingredients, the caramel and sponges are made from scratch, and they come in a unique form and presentation. They’re a great dessert gift for this holiday season. 🙂

Congratulations to Angela Villoria for winning the #4 spot in the UTT XI competition!

Indeed, this is simply one of the best Apple Pies in Manila, and the foodies during the recent UTT XI agree. 🙂

Congratulations and thanks to Chito, who named the business after her daughter, for sharing this classic Apple Pie delight with more foodies. 🙂 

Note:  They’re a home business based in the Alabang area.

There were a lot of cakes, cupcakes, and baked goods during the last Ultimate Taste Test, but The Noodle Bakes stood out because of their interesting flavors. 

We love the Garth Vader, which was made for peanut butter lovers. It’s like Reese’s and Butterfinger rolled into one cake!

You can also try their Tosi, which is a cake inspired by the addicting NYC crack pie dessert.

One of my favorite variations of the Cronut™ (a croissant-doughnut hybrid by Chef Dominique Ansel) is the home-based kronuts version by BRONUTS

It’s a thick, flaky sweet dough with a hole in a middle, filled with cream and topped with  flavorful treats. I like their savory version, Cream Cheese & Bacon, and the sweet version, Belgian Chocolate with Salted Caramel.

Congratulations to Edie Lim and partners for winning UTT XI with their yummy Bronuts creation!

Nikki Wilkerson of Uni-Chefs is one of the interesting bakers to watch out for. She apprenticed with Jacques Torres NYC, whose cookies are voted as the best in the world. She learned the techniques and now applies them to her signature cakes (using local ingredients) and other baked goodies as part of Uni-Chefs catering service.

She likes to do flavors that are “simple and perfectly done” vs. something new, weird, or different.
Once you’ve tasted her cakes, you’ll notice the difference. 

Only thing is, they’re based in Villa Teresa in Angeles City, Pampanga.

We’re big taho lovers and EVERYTHING WITH SOYA‘s is the best flavored taho we’ve ever tasted. It’s smooth and literally melts in your mouth. It has the right amount of sweetness and the flavor is well-infused into the soya.

If we would rank all the flavors, melon would be top, followed by strawberry, then original flavor, and lastly, chocolate.

Congratulations to Hannah on your Everything with Soya venture!

LOUIE’s Sea Salt Chocolate Chip Cookies provide a good balance of chocolate and cookie dough with a sea-salt kick. Among all the cookies during the taste test, these stood out the most. My wife raves about them, too. 🙂  

They were a surprise, last-minute entry in the Ultimate Taste Test home-based category, and turned out to be one of the winners of the UTTXI series. 🙂 Congrats, Jessica!
