Do you love anything sour? If your answer is yes, then you'll definitely love Jack 'n Jill new tamarind-flavored gummy candy called Champalok. The very first time I had encountered Champalok, I instantly fell in love with its unique asim-kilig goodness.

It was my first time to receive a special valentine surprise after more than twelve years of being single. It's such a joy to receive a bucketful of langhap-sarap Jollibee Glazed Chickenjoy treat from Jollibee on the eve of valentine's day. It was too bad that I wasn't at home in time for dinner because of the heavy traffic congestion I had experienced going home from the Spring Film Festival.

There's nothing sweeter and more romantic than sharing these sweet treats from Max's Corner Bakery!
I was able to try the Choco Peanut Butter cake myself and although I'm not really fond of peanut butter, I was surprised to find myself liking it. I love its velvety texture, it tastes like peanut butter, only in cake form. It's not too sweet but rather tastes just right. The chocolate perfectly complements the peanut butter.
At the end of the day, Valentine’s Day is all about celebrating with the people who are important to us. For Max’s, every season will always be about touching lives and creating memories that warm the heart.” Villanueva said.
