A collection of snacks in the Philippines

Pillows

Oishi has a lot of delicious snacks.  One of these snacks is the Pillows line of sweet cream filled crackers.

There are two popular flavours out on the market.  Chocolate Pillows and Ube Pillows.  It is a winning combination. Sweet chocolate or Ube cream is injected inside a “pillow” of semi-crunchy cracker dough. Very innovative and very delicious.

However Oishi has tried to make a savory snack using the same formula for their sweet line of Pillows.  The result: Cheese flavored Pillows. A disaster.

Cheese flavored Pillows are practically the same as the Chocolate or Ube Pillows the difference being that “Cheese” is inside the pillows.  It is disgusting.  The Cheese is not real cheese but cheese powder. The same  Cheese powder used to flavor various cheese chips.

So what you get is really cheese powder cream. Yuck.

Surprisingly, This snack has 35% RDA of Vitamin A.  It veers away from the vitamin-less trend of Oishi.  I guess since this snack tastes absolutely disgusting they had to think of a way to draw in customers.
