If you've ever been to Iloilo, you've probably bought packs of biscocho and butterscotch bars to bring back to Manila. One of the delicious Iloilo pasalubong finds that's definitely under the radar are creamhorns: it's a puff pastry cone with a sweet custard cream inside.

Last year, we found that we didn't have to fly all the way to Iloilo to enjoy these creamhorns because can find the same creamhorns here in Metro Manila through Alfonso's House of Creamhorns. They offered this pastry in the classic custard flavor and unique flavors like ube and buko pandan. Just recently, they launched a strawberry-flavored creamhorn.

The strawberry creamhorns don't have a strong artificial strawberry flavor since you can still taste the plain custard. The filling tastes like a melted, creamy version of Chupa-Chups' Strawberries-Cream flavor!

For the holidays, Carlo Vicente of Alfonso's House of Cremhorns thought of giving the creamhorns a colorful makeover! The puff pastry cones are colored pink for the strawberry creamhorns, lilac for the ube creamhorns, and pastel green for the pandan creamhorns. These are limited-edition versions of the creamhorns which will only be available for the holidays.
