Last Christmas we got some interesting food stuff from friends. Its always nice to receive food stuff for Christmas since there really is a lot of stuff from home bakers and small scale businesses out there.
The Fruit Garden Home Made Jam. I’ve seen Fruit Garden in Mercato Centrale and Rockwell bazaars before but I never really paid them much mind. I opened up the beautiful pink and green box and found six 30 gram jars in different flavors (Pineapple Coco Rhum, Mango Chocolate, Strawberry Banana, Pineapple Mango, Mango Ginger, and Strawberry). Quite an interesting assortment of flavors although we have only tried the strawberry one. The jam glides on smoothly spread on the bread. The natural flavors are really evident as you bite into the jam since they only use fruits and cane sugar only. The box also states that the jams are cooked in copper cauldrons in small batches following French tradition.

Sweet Treats by Corinn. This gift was given by B, our friend from Davao. A big luxurious box hinted of hidden treasures inside. Popping open the box, four rows of bright colored pouches greeted my eyes. Upon further inspection, it seems each color represents a different pastry treat. Orange for Choco Loco, Green for Food For the Gods and Yellow for Chewy Butterscotch.
Among the three, the one I least liked was the Choco Lava, not because I do not like chocolate, but it was dry. Both the food for the gods and chewy butterscotch were moist and chewy. The food for the gods tastes as good as my favorite ones from Tangerine Tree with lots of nuts and dates in each bite. The butterscotch has very strong buttery taste
