What is the Best Pasalubong from Bacolod? No, It's not Piaya.

Bacolod has always been my favorite summer destination. We loved the city so much that we decided to move here for good. 

The first time I was able to visit this beautiful city was around 20 years ago and I have very significant memories that made me come back here often. One is the old "pala-pala" or market along San Juan St. corner North Capitol Road. It is like "Dampa" in Metro Manila and they serve the best garlic and butter shrimps I have ever tasted. Second is the flat piaya that has been a popular sweet treat from the city of smiles. 

For years, I have always thought that Piaya which was either in original flavor or ube is the "best" pasalubong that you can bring from Bacolod. However, after moving here in 2015, I was surprised to discover that there is another delicacy which is really good and is actually the BEST PASALUBONG THAT YOU SHOULD BRING FROM BACOLOD CITY. 

It is called NAPOLEONESIt is a layered puff pastry filled with custard cream and glazed with white sugar on top. There are several pasalubong centers making this thus, we decided to conduct the ultimate test to find out which one is the best. After comparing the 5 different napoleones we tasted, we can say that MERZCI makes the Best Napoleones here in the city of smiles. 

Box of 16 - Php 135

Thus, if you are visiting Bacolod especially this Masskara Festival, you might want to bring this piece of Bacolod with you as pasalubong to your family and friends. MERZCI has a total of 50 branches in Negros Occidental, Negros Oriental, and Panay. They also have branches at the Bacolod - Silay Airport and Bredco Port in case you don't have the time to buy. 

Aside from Napoleones, we also recommend these MERZCI pasalubong treats. I can guarantee #TananManamit. (Everything is delicious.) 

About Merzci

It is a family business that started in 1995 and a market brand of CM & Sons Food Products, Inc. It began as a small bakery supplying bread to single stores in Libertad Market in Bacolod City and soon evolved to produce pasalubong products, water, and fast food serving delicious and affordable food. 

You may visit their website for more details. 


Now, here is the best part! Since I want you to try these delicious treats from Bacolod City, we're running a giveaway where you can get the chance to win goodies from MERCZI. The mechanics are very simple and it's open to anyone who has a Philippine address.  

Will announce the winner on October 21st in time for the celebration of the Masskara Festival here. Goodluck!
