Gigi's Custaroons come in a beautiful brightly colored box with a touch of retro styling. It was almost too pretty to open so it's really perfect for gift-giving.
Gigi's Custaroons come in boxes of 4, 6, 12, and 24 pieces. The pricing goes something like this:
A custaroon is like a cross between custard and macaroons, you know, those tiny chewy pastries made of coconut. Imagine this: Creamy yet firm custard peppered with crunchy, buttery bits of coconut you chew on when eating macaroons. It's sooo good. I swear I'm so addicted. If I didn't have any self-control I could have finished the whole box. Gigi Gaerlan is a genius for coming up with something like this. Gigi's Custaroons come in two variants: Original and Cheese. The cheese custaroons just have a bit of tangy cheesy taste. They also cost a bit more. Good thing I prefer the original. :)
- Box of 4: P 150.00
- Box of 6: P 170.00
- Box of 12: P 300.00
- Box of 24: P 550.00
But the fun's not over yet. There's also Poppers by Gigi's Custaroons. They come in this cute container which comes across like a small (but fashionable) pint of ice cream.
Poppers are bite-sized custaroon balls covered with a premium chocolate powder coating only Gigi can concoct. They come in Original, Green Tea, Cheese, and Coffee flavors. A tub containing 22 pieces in assorted flavors costs P200. They're divine. My hubby, who's not fond of desserts, couldn't stop popping them into his mouth. I think that's why they're called Poppers. :p
This is the Original Custaroon Popper. All the flavors are yummy but I think I like this one best. :)
Gigi's Custaroons and Poppers are hands down the best and most unique desserts I've had in a while. You really have to taste to believe. Visit Gigi's Custaroons on Facebook for ordering info -- you know you want some! I know I do. :p
