Snack Time : Hokkaido Cake by Milk Box PH

Oh man! Since when have I turned into a serial snacker? For the past months, I've been snacking all day long! From chips to cookies to cakes and even to a glass of cold milk. I am forever hungry especially in between feeding the babies so after nourishing them, off I go to the dining room to feed myself. I sure hope that I can maintain this weight even after breastfeeding as I seriously am eating like there's no tomorrow.

Anyway, here's the fun part though. Discovering new snacks and goodies along the way. A few months ago, I stumbled upon Milk Box PH while browsing through Instagram and was instantly lured by their Hokkaido Cake. I messaged them right away and well, what do you know?! I got two boxes of Hokkaido Cakes delivered to my doorstep the very next day which coincidentally were the #AngTwins' 3rd month celebration. Thanks so much R for the very very efficient service. Each box holds 6 cups of Hokkaido Cakes each and it sells for only Php. 380.

So what are Hokkaido Cakes? These are super fluffy, yummy Japanese cakes which are filled with light sweet cream and dusted with milk powder. If you've been following my blog for the past 10 years, you'll know that I can't take anything with heavy cream and given that, I try to avoid anything creamy or one that's loaded with icing to avoid any tummy troubles. I have to say that Milk Box's Hokkaido Cake is totally out of this world! The cream is the lightest that I've ever had in my life and the cake texture is so light and fluffy. The milk powder also wasn't too sweet. Overall, it was perfection in a cup. I wasn't expecting to fall totally in love with it but I sure did! I had two cups within the first 5 minutes of trying it for the first time.

Well, I wasn't the only one. Even Paul and my entire family loved the Hokkaido Cakes! To quote my niece J, she said "I'm in heaven when I eat this." This 9 year old cutie surely took after her Akim (that's me) when it comes to food, don't you think? I also love how it comes with a small spoon each so you can easily enjoy this anytime, anywhere. Seriously, good thing Milk Box delivers or else I would have to pick it up and would have to enjoy this immediately in the car. Just be sure to keep this refrigerated as the cream might not taste as good if it's warm and it won't keep long too.

Aside from Hokkaido Cakes, we tried a bag of Cornflakes Clusters (Php. 200) which are crunchy cornflakes dusted in somewhat sweet-salty milk powder. It reminds us of the polvoron powder. It's a bit on the dry side so be ready to have a glass of water on the side. It was good but I wasn't too crazy over it. I guess, I just couldn't stop swooning about the Hokkaido Cakes.

Milk Box also has mille crepe cakes, lactation cookies and Matzu Chizu (Php. 700/1200) which I promise to try as soon as I can take caffeine again. To order, message them on Facebook or Instagram. You may also contact R at +639178999622.
