Merci's Pasalubong Treats

Two weeks ago, the Negros Bloggers got an invitation to see the operations of Merci, which not so long ago was a bakeshop but has now evolved into other businesses like a pasalubong center, a fast food restaurant, among others.  Unfortunately due to classes I can no longer reschedule, I was not able to go with the group.  However to my surprise, I got a small box of their pasalubong treats, which of course made my kids' sweet-tooth very happy.
  
To be honest, this is the first time I have tasted Merci's Mango Tarts, Cheese Tart and Butterscotch. My relationship with Merci is purely about loaf breads and pastries/cakes (their cake rolls are good).  Now, my family loves butterscotch but I usually buy the other brand since their outlet is near my home...so what was the final verdict?  The mango and cheese tarts were good but...The Butterscotch was really special! It was chewy, soft, with just the right sweetness. It is the best I have ever tasted among the commercially available ones. Hmmm, I wonder if their bakeshop here in our market has them?  I am definitely a convert and will surely get our supply of butterscotch squares from the many Merci Pasalubong Centers found conveniently in the main streets and malls in Bacolod. There is also one conveniently located in the 2nd floor of the Bacolod-Silay Airport Terminal building.  Happy shopping!

  2. This must be really good because it made a convert out of you. I haven't tried Merci's but I've been on the receiving end of sweet treats from another Bacolod brand. I hope someone will give me some Merci treats for a change. =)
