Right: My Daughter's Favorite, Chocolate Chip Cookies
Ever since my daughter started eating solids, cookies and biscuits have been a steady resident of our fridge. We stock up on the traditional and culturally-famous Marie. And since then tried out other variants such as animal-shaped biscuits, graham crackers, and even iced gem. But nothing beats the classic chocolate chip cookies. My husband loves monster-izing on it, too, after having a hearty lunch or heavy dinner. As the budget manager of the family, we need to cut down on some expenses as we already have a preschooler (she'll be taking ballet classes this summer!). Yes, including food. So instead of buying Chips Ahoy or Chips Delight, we buy the "rejected-but-still-great" version. The vendor said that they got it from a dealer who has a connection with a biscuit factory in Laguna.

Whenever I ride a PUJ home and that my daughter would ask for a pasalubong, this is what I buy. One pack with 48 cookies costs Php70.00 only! Isn't that a great deal? My daughter has enough for 3 days, that is if her yaya will not join her for merienda.
|If we have extra money & we have been influenced by its TVC, we still buy this though.|
|And this. Mmm. Makes me feel hungry.|
|I particularly like its sweet & salty taste.|
There's one biscuit that is not of any relation to any chocolate-y variant that my daughter & I really like, it's Monde's One-One.
It has a sweet & salty flavor that just matched to its crackling sound when you take a bite. I think it's similar to the Japanese rice cookie. (I didn't do a research, I know)
These cookies and biscuits are a staple in any working mom's grocery list, especially if you have a growing child who opens the refrigerator and bangs it hard when she sees nothing but water. Next time you know, she's wailing loud & crazy to her yaya and will ask for milk instead. What a pitiful sight. So stock up on this than regret.
