5 Pasalubong Ideas to Bring Home to the Family
Nothing is as Filipino as a good pasalubong.
There's no denying that Pinoys love a good pasalubong. There's just something comforting about having a tradition of bringing something home to your loved ones after a trip or an especially long day at work.
The great thing about pasalubongs is that they are a wonderful reminder that someone took the time and effort to get you something special. Robinsons Supermarket, in partnership with the Department of Trade and Industry’s One Town, One Product (OTOP) program, has created an Islands Favorite aisle with some of the country's tastiest treats. OTOP is a business model adopted by many countries, including the Philippines, to develop small and medium enterprises into competitive local producers.
If you're feeling extra generous and want to share the love with your friends and family via a pasalubong or two, pick up one of these tasty treats:
1 Ilocos Chichacorn
If Ilocanos know how to make anything, it's this crazy crunchy corn snack! This tasty snack is all about the classic corn and garlic flavor combo we can't get enough of!
2 Edna & Rebecca's Banana Chips
