Here's another local merienda treat to add to your ube-flavored pastry list: Laguna Baker's ube rolls, made with real ube halaya inside.
The rolls, an ube version of the popular dessert and merienda, features soft, pillowy, and airy bread. Each piece also has butter and sugar on top, which gives it a nice, sweet crunch.
Instead of cheese as its filling though, Laguna Bakers' ube roll has a surprise chunky center of homemade ube halaya inside.
A box of 6 costs P240, while a dozen costs P480.
Laguna Bakers offers original cheese rolls also worth a try at the same price, with the usual savory cheese in the middle.
