We’re ready to spread some holiday cheer!
The holidays are here and we’re more than ready to spread some cheer! Think about it, the world is slowly opening up again, we’ve learned a thing or two about ourselves—how capable and resourceful we can be in the face of adversity—and our relationships–and just how important they are and creative we can be in nurturing them—and a new year filled with exciting possibilities. The ride hasn’t been perfect and we don’t expect it to be, but we’re glass-half-full kind of people. So celebrate wins big and small, and let this month’s Wonder Treats double as a cheat sheet for gift ideas for yourself and for the people you care about.

Don Papa Rum x Lost Philippines
If you’re veering towards a socially distant option for holiday gatherings, why not try a festive e-numan? Perfect for friends and family, Escape to Sugarlandia with Don Papa Rum, in collaboration with Lost Philippines, this fun-filled season. This virtual escape room is a great option if you’re into games and mystery-solving, coupled with rum-drinking! What’s not to love?
The most precious artifacts of Don Papa have been stolen from Mount Kanlaon, and now it’s looming for eruption. Find the missing artifacts and return them to their rightful place before it’s too late! Worry not for the spirit of Don Papa will serve as your guide along with some essential clues. Awaken in a lush, fertile island filled with flora and fauna, uncover the mysteries, and bring life back to Sugarlandia.
If you haven’t heard of Merry Moo, there’s a reason why it’s become so popular: they only use fresh milk and cream from cows that roam freely in local, green pastures. So no doubt that every bite is creamy, rich and smooth, you’ll be in a merry mood (yes, even after the holidays).
This month, we recommend you try Merry Moo’s Toffee Almond Crunch, which is both nutty and nice! Sink your teeth into the caramel toffee with Merry Moo’s coffee base mixed with a generous serving of crunchy almond pralines.
Looking for a post-holiday gift girls, boys and everyone in between of all ages will enjoy? Choose between Oishi’s Weeshee bag and Cuckoo bag. Each bag is filled with Oishi chips and other goodies good for one or for sharing! Snack on it while catching up with family or friends or while bingeing on your favorite series. Did we mention, the Cuckoo bag usually comes with a free Oishi Friends item (like stickers!).
Available in leading supermarkets and convenience stores nationwide.
There’s nothing quite like a cup of hot chocolate that takes us back to happier times and Christmastime! So while it’s still chilly outside, cozy up with family and friends and share a hot cup of Swiss Miss Chocolate Hazelnut. Rich and creamy chocolate goodness guaranteed in every sip, Swiss miss is made from a blend of premium ingredients. Chocolate Hazelnut not the flavor for you? Try Swiss Miss’ other variants, Marshmallow (a childhood favorite) and Dark Chocolate.
Available in leading supermarkets and convenience stores nationwide.
Moët & Chandon
We’re kicking off the list with the icon for celebrations Moët & Chandon. The champagne house invites you to share the delight of togetherness through a series of events inspired by the champagne’s effervescence in over 20 cities around the world, including Manila! Here, guests can enjoy musical performances and immersive experiences they will never forget.
In Manila, Moët & Chandon launched it’s very first Moët Pop Up at Greenbelt 3. The pop up features a sparkling display of champagne bottles in various sizes, as well as a station for personalizing bottles, which makes for a perfect gift if you ask us!

We love Calbee’s warm greetings on social media, “May your days be merry, bright, and full of flavor!” And we don’t doubt it will be with some help from Japan’s leading snack brand. Calbee offers a wide range of potato chip products: Honey Butter Potato Chips (a favorite of Team Wonder!), Potato Chips in classic salted, cheddar cheese and wasabi flavors, and wavy-cut Ripples in Nori, and Sour Cream & Onion flavors.

We’re down to the last month or so of the year and there’s no better time than now to look back at the moments that made the present. Think about the progress you’ve made and all that you’ve accomplished. These moments deserve a #SimplyPerfect glass of Patrón. And when we say perfect glass, we mean cocktails that you can enjoy and kick back with. It’s as easy as build, stir and serve! Our favorite foolproof recipe is up ahead:
What you’ll need:
45ml Patrón Silver
15ml Calamansi Honey
90ml Tonic Water
Put calamansi honey in the glass together with Patrón Silver. Make sure to stir to dissolve the Calamansi Honey. Throw in some ice, do one last stir and top with Tonic Water. Enjoy!
