One of the cheap baked items that I grew up eating was the bagong bayan. It must have been decades since I last ate one. The rise of more glamorous bakeshops has relegated some of the most common snack fares into obscurity. I went to Parkmall last weekend to check on their weekend market and I was surprised to see the bagong bayan. I did not know that some bakeries are still selling this cheap yet delicious snack. I bought a pack home and eating it brought back a lot of good memories. I would probably buy more the next time I see someone selling this old favorite.
Do you have an old favorite that you have not tasted for quite a while?
