Crumbs and Grubs’ Strawberry Croissant
Price: P550 for a box of three
Although a lot of bakeries have been going the doughnut route, Crumbs and Grubs takes inspiration from a more breakfast-friendly type of bread: the croissant. The pastry shop makes the drool-worthy Strawberry Croissant with each piece consisting of a large buttery croissant packed with fresh, juicy strawberries from Baguio. The filling also includes a generous slather of homemade strawberry preserves made with Palawan honey. According to Crumbs and Grubs, it’s only available for a limited time, so make sure you sample it before it’s taken off the menu.
Claudine’s Sweet Selections’ Japanese Fruit Sandwich
Price: P580 for a box of four
The fruit “sando” by Claudine’s Sweet Selections is one’s more of a traditional sandwich than the other items on this list—albeit sweeter and more dessert-like than your usual savory sandwich. In this best-selling snack-slash-dessert, two slices of soft, airy Japanese milk bread are stuffed with fresh fruits and whipped cream. The strawberry variant is a fan favorite, especially for berry lovers, but kiwi, orange, and mixed fruit flavors are available, too.
Gram Pancakes’ Strawberry Filled Sandwich
Price: P655 for a box of four
Gram Pancakes bucks the strawberry-filled doughnut trend and goes for their own take on it with the pancake shop’s Strawberry Filled Sandwich—and it’s sooo good! Instead of bread, Gram places a generous mass of fresh strawberries between their signature soufflé pancakes. Lighter than most other strawberry sandwiches, the sweet treat is a must-try, whether you’re eating it as a snack or a dessert. Plus, it’s a great introduction to Gram’s yummy and ultra-fluffy pancakes!
