The Maple and Pecan Drop Scones at GAIL’s are the stuff nut lovers’ dreams are made of! It’s slightly flatter than your usual biscuit, but the satisfaction from the pecan-packed, maple-glazed treat makes up for it. The bakery is also well-known for their Cinnamon Buns and Chocolate Pecan Brownies, which you should add to your haul as well.
Buko pie is only one of the many pasalubongs Rowena’s offers. Rowena has the largest range of treats from egg, coconut, ube, mango, and blueberry cheesecake tarts, to name a few! It's great for households with picky eaters that can’t stand buko but still want to be in on the fun!
When it comes to Buko Pandan (young coconut and pandan dessert), Nathaniel’s is a clear winner. The Pampanga-grown brand is famous for their Buko Pandan Salad, a creamy sweet treat that leaves your palate clean and, often, wanting more. You’ll usually find tubs of Nathaniel's' specialty in grocery stores, but drop by one of their retail shops to bring home a few other regional goodies, as well!
