Gardenia Pocket Sandwich: Perfect for School Baon

Posted on

We spent our last hurrah before school started at the Gardenia Pocket Sandwich event at Fun Ranch Pasig. Jael and I were looking forward to spending the day together and we had a jam packed day as it turned out. First up was Gardenia which has always been one of our school baon choices from making all sorts of sandwiches to their muffins and fun buns. Now, they’ve made mommy life more easy by presenting Pocket Sandwiches.

Before we got to know more about their newest offering we took advantage of the games and play. Jael has always been shy but I loved seeing him come out of his shell more at this event. He was eager to play and even participate in the games.

It was an eventful (and tiring for me at least!) event but the smiles and happiness radiating from Jael was worth it. It’s always worth it.

Jael and I were on point with our teamwork as we participated in this game. I took it a bit seriously, I know but hey we won!

See Jael in the back? He didn’t used to want to join dances but he did here. He danced alongside the Gardenia mascots and their newest addition Pocket Sandwich!

Moms have found a great ally in Gardenia with their soft, freshly-baked bread that is great-tasting, nutritious and that’s easy to prepare snacks and even meals with.

Made with two slices of soft white bread, Pocket Sandwich has no edges and is perfectly sealed, making it a convenient snack for the kids and not messy to eat. Gardenia pocket sandwich is easy to carry around and easily fits in lunch boxes or bags, so kids could bring them as their school baon for breaktime.

  • Comes in chocolate and peanut butter variants
  • High in iron contributing to normal formation of red blood cells and hemoglobin
  • High in Vitamin B1 that helps release energy from proteins, fats and carbohydrates
  • Has vitamin A, which is essential for the function of the eyes

For only Php 15.00 (SRP), kids can now enjoy the newest Gardenia Pocket Sandwich, available in leading supermarkets and convenience stores near you.

Enjoy Gardenia’s other snack time treats!

Frabelle Foods Bento Box Workshop with Mommy Bloggers Philippines

Posted on

Mommy Bloggers Philippines teamed up with Frabelle Foods to have a special bento box workshop for mommy bloggers. This was an event I was really looking forward to and excited for. For sure, you’re familiar with this brand with their tasty frozen seafood and Christmas hams.

This workshop featured a few of their premium products which I was surprised we were able to make into the cutest bento creations.

Frabelle comes from the names of the founders,  Francisco and Bella = Frabelle. Frabelle Foods includes many kinds of products from frozen seafood, balls, battered, breaded, fried, sauces, hotdogs, longganiza, tocino, bacon, sliced hams, tapa, to their famous Christmas hams.

Seascape Bento Box

Our first bento box creation featured Frabellle Foods Captain’s Catch Cheesy Nuggets. We have been buying Frabelle’s Captain’s Catch Fish Nuggets for Jael. It’s one of his favorite foods and before we discovered their fish nuggets we were feeding him another brand (chicken nuggets). For 2 weeks straight he ate chicken nuggets for lunch and gained weight that bothered me. I realized the chicken nuggets I was feeding him was not healthy.

Since nuggets are his favorite I searched for an alternative and that’s when I found Frabelle’s fish nuggets! A healthier alternative and one that I can feed Jael with peace of mind.

Featured products:

  • Captain’s Catch Cheezy Tuna Nuggets
  • Bossing Sweet Ham

Lady Bug in Paradise Bento Box

When Chef Donne said we were making ladybugs I had to wonder how that would turn out and it turned out perfectly if I do say so myself.

Featured product:

  • Bossing Burger

Chef Donne shared some tips for bento making. Instead of using toothpicks you can use uncooked spaghetti to prevent kids from getting hurt. To stick the food together like the eyes and other pieces mayo is a good option.

Lettuce is a great way to fill the box and give it color and life. It can also be a padding for the other food pieces.
