Jumbo Pastillas by Iya

Jumbo Pastillas de Leche

Say goodbye to those Pastillas de Leche that despite being teeny weeny in size still cost an arm and a leg. Say hello to Iya's Jumbo Pastillas. This is how Pastillas de Leche should be. Rich, sugary, creamy, and... huge!

Pastillas de Leche is the first cousin of my other favorite milk and sugar-crusted confection, the Yema. Unfortunately, I think I am not the only one who simply lost interest in buying them after a string of purchases that yielded either substandard quality sweets or expensive good ones that were so distressingly small. Until I came across Iya's Jumbo Pastillas. It renewed by love affair with this iconic Pinoy confection.

Addicted to Pastillas like I am? Get your fix at one of the fruit stalls in Market! Market! Just look out for stacks of maroon and apple green boxes with cute cow prints. A box of 24 jumbo Pastillas will set you back Php250. A steal for what you get. They make perfect gifts, too, especially to your sweet-tooth friends.

I must confess I am a repeat repeat offender- I get myself a box of these sugary morsels almost every time I find myself in Serendra. Sometimes I even go there only to get a box of these babies. They are that good.
