Inspired by our love affair with KFC Sisig, we decided to go on a fast food tour with our favorite Japanese gal Fuchiko. Here are our new (and old) discoveries:
Jollibee’s Choco Mallow Pie
P32 for one, P89 for three
We first spotted Jollibee’s Choco Mallow Pie in a Facebook post written by someone who had eaten three in one sitting. “Whoa,” we thought. And then, the next day, we ate three in one sitting.
Jollibee’s Choco Mallow Pie is tiny but mighty chocolatey. Some people complain that it’s too sweet but these are the same people who will complain that s’mores are too sweet. We like our sweets sweet. (Also, we love s’mores so much that we can eat them every day.) And that’s essentially what the Choco Mallow Pie is—our beloved bee’s take on the classic campfire treat: a mix of melted chocolate and gooey marshmallow trapped not between graham crackers but inside a chocolate version of that Peach Mango Pie crust we all know and love.
McDonald’s Creamy Truffle Shake Shake Fries
P70 for medium, P139 for BFF
Can’t deny it, we’re obsessed with truffle everything (the thought of Va Bene’s truffle tagliatelle fills us with joy) so of course we had to try McDonald’s Creamy Truffle Shake Shake Fries. Did it taste like our favorite truffle fries from Diamond Hotel? Not really. We still enjoyed it though. You get a whiff of that rich and earthy scent when you rip open the packet of powder and, once you’re done sprinkling and shaking, you can enjoy creamy, cheesy, chive-y fries with a hint of truffle flavor. It’s the most affordable truffle fix we know.
What’s next, Quarter Pounder with Foie Gras?
Dunkin’ Donuts’ Cheese Trickles
P35 for 5 pieces
Something has stolen the crown from our Dunkin’ Donuts favorites: Cheese Trickles, which they introduced in 2015. These little munchkins are balls of delight. (I like to think of them as baby ensaymadas.) They’re sweet, salty and cheesy and you can’t stop at eating just one.
Wendy’s Vanilla Frosty
P38 for small, P60 for medium, P74 for large
For decades, we believed that we lived in a world that had only one kind of Frosty—chocolate, that cold creamy cross between soft-serve ice cream and milkshake that we loved so much we used to play hooky and skip classes so we can grab a cup. It was only recently that we found out that Wendy’s had introduced a new variant in 2006— vanilla. We discovered it at a tiny stall in Greenhills. It was cold, creamy and comforting—it offered such a relief from the summer heat. We liked it so much we wanted to inhale it. But when we asked the Wendy’s girl if we can use a straw to slurp it up, she said, “Ma’am, mahihirapan po kayo.”
We’re done kicking ourselves for not finding out about Vanilla Frosty sooner. We’re now in the process of making up for the lost time by enjoying at least one cup every week. And, while writing this, we just ordered Twisted Frosty Salted Caramel Crunch, Twisted Frosty Classic with Oreo Cookies and Frosty Tops – Mango Graham Burst.
Yellow Cab’s My Stuff
Every phone call to Yellow Cab is a struggle especially when we’re alone. We always want a taste of all our favorites—#4 Cheese pizza, Hot Wings and pasta—and so we always end up over-ordering, overspending and overeating. But Yellow Cab has put together their greatest hits in one box: My Stuff, giving you pizza, pasta and wings in an affordable package. And you get to pick what’s in your box: Pepperoni or #4 Cheese pizza pouch? Charlie Chan Chicken Pasta or Spaghetti with Meat Sauce? Garlic Parmesan, Sriracha, Barbecue Chicken or Hot Wings? Now if they’d only add Chicken Alfredo Pasta as an option, life would truly be perfect.
