Off topic, I just found out that Blogspot now has Emojis. Cute! 🎄
Yesterday, I did a grocery run with Panda and Desi at Landers Balintawak (which is surprisingly walking distance from my house). So to brands who hold events in Makati or Fort, you can see how much I love you when I decide to show up. 😉
I spotted a lot of "Christmassy" things, so this can serve as your cheat sheet when you're looking for Christmas gifts on your next visit to Landers. (Their branch in Otis is now open, so you don't have to go all the way to Quezon City if you live in Manila.) I'll include the prices for your reference. 🎅 And no, this post won't have anything to do with Christmas lights, Christmas balls, ham, queso de bola, and fruitcake. Everything here is Helen approved! 😊
1. Hershey's Kisses Mint Truffle (P300) 🍫
OMG! They're back! I've been buying this every year since I first saw it way back 2009! And it's the first time they've changed their packaging from this:
Both versions look fine with me, but I remember them being cheaper last year, like at around P230 per pack in other supermarkets. I guess I'll have to wait first for other places to carry this item before buying. 😀 (As you can see, I really scout for minty things.)
But if you can't wait, by all means, go hoard! 🙊 They have a LOT of stocks on the shelves as of yesterday.
2. Crayola Gingerbread House Kit (P700)
This one's so cute! No baking required. Haha! I want to give this to my niece, but I think I'm the one who really wants it.
3. Swiss Miss Hot Cocoa Mix in Mint Chocolate (6 Envelopes) (P247) ☕
I've seen this last year, and it's still so cute! The tin is making it expensive, though. I just want my choco mint fix, please.
4. Owl White Coffee Peppermint (8 Sachets) (P240) ⛄
When I saw this, I forgot I even wanted the cute box of Swiss Miss Mint Chocolate because this one's a MUSIC BOX! 🎶
LOOK! :D It's legit! Now I don't even know hot the White Coffee Peppermint tastes like, but you can never go wrong with peppermint. ;)
5. Welch's Limited Edition Mocktail (P190) 🍸
Last year's holiday edition was just their red and white sparkling juice in festive packaging at S&R (which I regretted not getting, and ended up buying the plain one since that was the only one available at Landmark). This year's sparkling mocktails come in 4 flavors, and I want to try ALL of them: Sangria, Mango Bellini, Piña Colada, and Strawberry Daiquiri. I was able to try Strawberry Daiquiri and it was good! We even got to mix it with a mango drink at the cafe, and it was amazing!
6. Ferrero Rocher (in holiday packaging)
Ferrero Rocher is a gift that's given on any and every occasion. I am not fond of nuts, but I'd take Ferrero Rocher any day. Sarap eh! Ang mahal lang. They come up with very classy packaging. The gift box is around P240, and the Christmas tree is around P670 if I remember it correctly.
The next ones aren't exactly Christmas-themed, but the caught my attention as well and you can certainly give them as gifts, too.
7. Hubba Bubba Bubble Tape (P60)
These are so nostalgic! Imagine, 6 feet of sugary fun. My teeth says no, but my heart says yes! I still think that the Awesome Original flavor is the best. The green one in Sour Green Apple comes in a glittery packaging.
You might stop buying these from Candy Corner, they're cheaper here!
9. Hoegaarden Rosée 750ml (P400) 🌹
Me encanta! Pink beer! 😍 I don't know if it's good, but I want to try the individual can first before getting this big bottle. I didn't see it in stock though!
10. Herbs 🌿
Merry Christmas! From this angle, the display reminds me of a skinny Christmas tree. Each pot of herb costs P85. It's my dream to have a garden of herbs, vegetables, and even fruits so I can just pick some outside and cook. For now, this will do. 😛 I think my Mom would like this very much! How convenient it would be for cooking. 👍
Hope you enjoyed this Happy List! 💖 Which one is your favorite?
