Classic Polvoron that you must try!

Polvoron, heard of it before? Some of you may answer yes and some may answer no. Oh well, let me quote the meaning of Polvoron from wikipedia.

A polvorón (Arabic: ghurayba; Cebuano: polboron; Tagalog: pulburon) is a type of Andalusian shortbread of Levantine origin popular in Spain and Latin America and other ex-Spanish colonies such as the Philippines during Christmas. It is made of flour, sugar, milk, and nuts. They are normally produced from September to January but are now often available year round. There are about 70 factories in Andalusia that are part of a syndicate that produce polvorones and mantecados.
Now it may sounds familiar to you, am I right? Anyhow, here are some photos of the Polvoron that I think it's truly fascinating.

Drooled? Haha, how it's possible for you to drool with so little photos being uploaded. Now let's talk about the taste, unlike any other normal Polvorons in the supermarket, which are either too dry, too sweet or too soft. This Polvoron is simply too nyummy and it's resistible. If you can see the front packaging, it's manufactured by Goldilocks, from Philippines (you can see the address at the back packaging).

Yeah baby, from Philippines, I don't think it's available in Malaysia. Well, I'm not too sure too. I was given  a bundle which contains more than 10 packets (I did not count) by my relatives for me to try. So, if you're in Philippines, make sure you give it a damn try with no regret. Trust me. Anyway, feel free to find out more @
