You’re the 1, Goldilocks!

Saturday, July 04, 2009

I'm a sweet tooth. I can't tell you how many tons of sweets I've already consumed during my lifetime, but by the time I do you would have finished reading a whole set of encyclopedias. Never in my wildest dreams would I have lived without one thing in particular. No its not one of the three bears, but Goldilocks!
It's that quaint yellow and blue store we go to when we need to give that special someone the best Filipino food and the grandest cakes that are baked to perfection. I always get my friends to tag along with me every time I visit the store, to stop me from literally getting everything off the shelf. Being the foodie that I am, I only eat those which pass my meticulous palate. I only eat dinuguan cooked by my Aunt or the one in the store for the same reason. It ends up always paired with that butter puto that I also have for breakfast and merienda almost thrice a week. Every birthday in our family is celebrated with those awesome premium cakes they are well known for, I mean who has not tasted "Black Forest"?

My Mom adores the Ube Cake and Brazo de Mercedes which is pretty much a staple every year we celebrate her birthday. My Dad on the other hand always get his hands on Cathedral Windows and Crema de Fruta when he takes a break from the so called "diet" he goes through everytime he feels healthy. My Sister splurges on tarts, pies and take home bags of cake slices; with me taking care of the Marble and Chiffon flavors of course! I like the new Mango Angel Torte also and I got to share that with my office mates a few days ago. I take a break from the hot sweltering sun in the Goldilocks branch in Cubao (since it's near my place) and finish servings of Sago't Gulaman, Black Gulaman, Mais con Hielo and Halo-Halo topped with mouth watering Leche Flan which just makes my day! We are living testament to Goldilocks and the years that they have been part of our lives. This just gets better and better!

It's the time we share these things and take grace from God that we celebrate life! Every year, every day and every hour, the things we get from these will always be remembered. You're the one Goldilocks because out of the 7,100 islands the Philippines, there is only one place to enjoy food with my family. Only Goldilocks does that!

Hello there. O, i love there dinuguan. When me and my husband went to a filipino store in Carson, California, beside the store is a Goldilock's outlet and I always ended up ordering at least 2 orders of dinuguan with puto. Yummyyyy. Your post makes me hungry. Take care and thanks for the visit.

I do love Goldilocks. Everytime I came back home, I would order lots of Goldilocks pressies.
