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!

MALAGOS CHOCOLATE is one of my favorite Chocolate discoveries during the recent taste test. This is brought to us by the same Puentespina Family from Davao, also famous for their Malagos Cheese. The chocolate was highly rated by the US-based C-Spot objective chocolate rating site.

I personally like the 75% Dark Chocolate version while my wife likes the 85% Dark chocolate. Both were also available for taste test during the event. Their chocolate has balanced sweetness and is not too bitter.

Congratulations to Rex and Jen Puentespina for another proudly Filipino product!

11 Foodie Tips & Tricks to Survive UTT 11! #UltimateTasteTest @PowerPlantMall

(1 Day to go before Rockwell’s 3rd Ultimate Taste Test!)

11 Foodie Tips & Tricks to Survive UTT 11!

1) Pace yourself. Don’t attempt to finish the food from all 50+ vendors in a single hour. 

2) Rate the food immediately. Trust your instincts and put the first score that comes to mind.

Here’s the rating scale for the taste test and some guidelines for each score:

1- Thanks, but it could be better. (If you didn’t like the food at all)
2- It’s OK. (If it was acceptable but not really memorable)
3- We had a good time. (If it was good and you enjoyed eating it)
4- I love it! (If the food was really good and something you would order next time)
5- Awesome! (If the food was really, really good that you would tell everyone about it or give it away for Christmas to your friends and family)

We suggest you give your rating first before comparing notes with other foodies so that your decision won’t be influenced. So if you love the food and think it’s rave-worthy, go ahead and give it a 5.

After Saturday’s street dancing competition, you should watch the next day’s float parade showcasing Davao’s fruits, flowers, and other produce. The parade starts as early as 7am on Sunday and is the culmination of the Kadayawan festival.
