8 Christmas Gifts (Like Spreadable Lechon!) That Are Worth the Calories
  • It's hard to describe Christmas in the Philippines without mentioning food. Pinoys are voracious eaters (we're already planning our next meal as we eat) and food lovers (how else could each region in the country have its own distinct version of adobo?).

    Indeed, the holidays are made more special when you share a sumptuous feast with your loved ones. But when you can't, you can always settle for the next best thing: send love to your friends and relatives by way of these delicious holiday gifts! 

    Now you won't have to wait for Christmas to taste your favorite queso de bola. This creamy, sweet and savory cheese spread is available all year round!
