It’s always a challenge for moms to think about what to put into their children’s snack bags that are nutritious but at the same time something they will actually want to eat, so I’m delighted that Gardenia has come up with a way for moms to stress less. Everyone, meet your children’s new scrumptious baon: the Gardenia Pocket Sandwich.
The Gardenia Pocket Sandwich is made up of two slices of Gardenia’s famous soft white bread, sandwiching either a chocolate or peanut butter filling inside.
If you’ll notice, the brown edges have been trimmed off the sides. I know lots of kids don’t like that crust around the breads so I’m pretty sure they will appreciate this! It’s even crimped to lock in all the filling, so it won’t be messy to pack nor will it be messy to eat. Something new in the market, right?
And have I mentioned it only costs Php 15 a piece? So affordable!
Gardenia has created quite the reputation for itself as one of the top quality brands in the country, so moms, you can rest assured that these breads are produced in a clean and sanitized environment. Not only that, the breads are baked fresh everyday.
The Gardenia Pocket Sandwich comes in two flavors at the moment. The Gardenia Chocolate Pocket Sandwich has a rich chocolate filling sealed inside creamy white bread. Sweet and tasty, it is a classic chocolate sandwich.
The Gardenia Chocolate Pocket Sandwich is also high in iron and folate which helps with the formation of red blood cells and hemoglobin. It also has vitamin B1 that helps release energy from proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. The presence of vitamin A helps with eye function as well.
Meanwhile, the Gardenia Peanut Butter Pocket Sandwich has milky peanut butter within. It has the same vitamins and minerals present in the chocolate variant, and good thing too because I love peanut butter!
The taste of this one is a little sweeter than the chocolate version. The consistency of the peanut butter reminds me of when I make peanut butter and jelly and the two spreads fuse together inside the bread.
Personally, I think not only kids will enjoy and appreciate this because of its convenience; it can easily fit into the pockets of any bag, making it also perfect for college students and office workers to keep in their bags for hunger pangs. Pretty nifty! I know I never want to be stuck in traffic (or anywhere for that matter) without any food in my bag.
Gardenia Pocket Sandwich in both Chocolate and Peanut Butter variants are now available in leading supermarkets and convenience stores so go and grab a dozen! It’s only 15 pesos after all!
