Wonder Treats Ber Szn 2020 Edition
Sweet treats for you and your sweet(s)
In the Philippines, the holiday season starts soon as the Ber months (you know, September, October, November and December) begin. Malls start setting up festive decor and we start hearing Christmas songs on the radio or they pop up on our recommended lists.
This year is a far cry from the last and it’s hard to say how Christmas will look like, but here we all are, trying! And because we figured you might need a little help (we do, too), we looked at what some of our favorite brands are up to, to get us in a festive mood.
Your favorite desserts now in your favorite cookie
Everyone’s favorite cookie just got better. OREO just released two new flavors inspired by the world’s best-loved desserts: OREO Red Velvet and OREO Salted Caramel.
Red Velvet features a red velvet-colored cookie and cheesecake flavored center, while Salted Caramel combines the contrasting flavors of creamy caramel and sea salt. Best enjoyed with your drink of choice (milk or black coffee for us!) and in the company of our loved ones.
OREO Seasonals is available in all leading stores and e-commerce platforms nationwide from August until December 2020 or until supplies last. For more exciting announcements, follow OREO on Facebook.
Take a trip for the senses
Johnnie Walker celebrates its 200th anniversary with Johnnie Walker Black Label Origin Series, a limited edition collection that celebrates the many flavor profiles of Scotland. Let it take you on a trip through Scotland, specifically to the Speyside and Lowland regions where the two new blends took inspiration from.
Fancy something light and fruity? Try Johnnie Walker Black Label Speyside Origin. Featuring hints of cut green apple and orchard fruit, this blend is made exclusively from quality single malts from the Speyside region and whisky from the distilleries of Cardhu and Glendullan. Meanwhile, Johnnie Walker Black Label Lowlands Origin boasts a sweet and creamy taste thanks to its vanilla character and subtle notes of toffee. It’s made exclusively from a variety of single malt and grain whiskies from the Lowlands, including distilleries of Glenkinchie and Cameronbridge.
But that’s not all. This month, Johnnie Walker also teamed up with cocktail joint OTO for an afternoon of whisky tasting and craft cocktails by Diageo Reserve World Class 2019 Philippines Bartender of the Year and OTO Head Bartender David Abalayan. Both cocktails, The Take Over, The Breaks Over and Good Times, Bad Times feature Johnnie Walker Black Label Origin Series as its base.
Picturing yourself by the beach, cocktail in hand (hard same)? Go for the smoky taste of Good Times, Bad Times. Looking for a refreshing cocktail at the end of a long day? Ease your woes with the rich and citrusy flavor of The Take Over, The Breaks Over.
If you’re more of a purist, you can get the Johnnie Walker Black Label Origin Series for P1,899 at The Booze Shop. For OTO’s special cocktails, which comes with a 120ml cocktail and a free 60ml bottle of the base whisky used, you can learn more through their Instagram page. Remember that when you purchase OTO’s cocktails, part of the proceeds will go to the Poblacion bar community.
Please do not share this with those under the legal purchase age of alcohol. Always drink responsibly.
