My husband went home from work one day with a packet of tasty treats. At first, I thought it was just a small bag of crunchy croutons (I was puzzled actually, as I can't remember we bought some stuff for salads). But then, it turns out those little cubes were actually pastillas! I wouldn't really know if he hadn't told me.
Honestly, this was my first time to taste toasted pastillas. And this thing tastes great! This is the kind of pastillas that I'd always wanted. The sugar coating on the outside makes it sweet. I think the sugar was torched to make it stick to the milk mixture, thus giving it a toasted look. The pastillas cube may have been coated with sugar, but, surprisingly it tastes just right and not too sweet. I was so used to the pastillas that we usually buy from sari-sari stores that I was expecting Taste N See Toasted Pastillas to be the same in terms of sweetness.
I took some photos of it before opening the bag. I'm afraid I might not be able to take some pictures once I've started munching on them as they might be gone in a snap! Haha!
Note: Unfortunately, due to my carelessness when I switched to WordPress, I did not create a backup of the photos (ikr), so isipin mo na lang yung itsura ng croutons 😩
I'm now a fan! I was told that our friend who gave it to my husband ordered it online. Immediately, I've scoured the web and found the candy store through https://www.facebook.com/officialtastensee. The store is located in Malolos, Bulacan. That explains why the delicacy is made to perfection. The Bulacan province is well-known for it.I'm not really sure if they have a physical store, but anyone who wants to try their products, they can be reached through their Facebook page and through mobile number 0915 719 3817.
