4¬†Aji¬†Savor on Rice

5¬†Cadbury Dairy Milk Coffee
Coffee and chocolate fans know this too well: it's hard to choose between a chocolate treat and a coffee-flavored dessert. This chocolate bar puts the two together, making it an ideal snack for when you need a caffeine and chocolate rush. Genius!¬†

6 Pancit Canton Extra Hot Chili with Cheese Sauce
When it comes to Lucky Me's Pancit Canton, it's hard to bump off the classic flavors off of the all-time favorite flavors. To our surprise, the Extra Hot Chili with Cheese Sauce effortlessly makes it to our top faves. Don't worry about the "Extra Hot Chili" flavor, the cheese sauce mellows the spiciness down!
Exclusively available in SM Supermarkets, P22 per cup.
7 KitKat Salted Caramel Popcorn
It's not something we ever looked for, but we sure are thankful we crossed paths. This limited-edition KitKat flavor is a caramel lover's dream come true-it's made with crusty salted caramel popcorn flakes, encasing layers of freshly-baked crispy wafer with salted caramel praline.
Available in Rustan's Supermarket, 7-Eleven convenience stores, and Pioneer Center, PP23-P33.
8 Nissin Cheesy Seafood Instant Noodles
Cheesy noodles aren't uncommon but the addition of cheese makes the normal seafood noodles taste so delicious you want another serving.
Available in leading supermarkets and groceries,¬†P17 per cup.
9 VCut Party Pack
If you're someone who grew up loving to snack on a bag of VCut, you probably relate to the feeling that one bag is often not enough to satisfy that salty craving. At least with the party pack, you have enough for yourself and there's even more left for sharing or a second round of snacking.
Available in Landmark Supermarket and Makati Supermarket, P68.
10 SavorRich liquid seasoning
It's one super flavorful bottle. It's an ingredient that does many things at once¬†and since it comes in a bottle, it's super convenient to just add a dash here, a dash there, and perhaps another dash here again for a super tasty meal that just got better.¬†
Available in leading supermarkets and groceries,¬†P 6/16g sachet, P85/240g bottle, and P150/480 gram bottle.
