15 Feb Give in to Your Cravings: Merienda Finds in Cagayan de Oro to Indulge in Today
Fries. Milk Tea. Sushi. Yema Pastel. Craving for any of these or something else? Why don’t you just give in?
The city of Cagayan de Oro has a lot to offer when it comes to food. Every corner, you will see a restaurant with “Come In” signage at their front doors. Even on the sides of the streets, stalls of siomai, fried peanuts, and “kakanin” are displayed.
Nowadays, as an effect of the COVID-19 pandemic, many home-based businesses have emerged. They made use of the internet to introduce their products to potential customers while they don’t have a physical location in the meantime. By this, Kagay-anons are given no excuse to indulge in something, whether sweet or savory.
Speaking of something to indulge, what comes to your mind when hearing the word “merienda”? Did your mind show you the following?

Cookies are definitely a part of our childhood. Try to remember the very first cookie you had and compare it to the ones you see today, especially on social media. It is evident that cookies don’t look the same way as before as they get new flavors and appearance as well. But what stays is the feeling we get when taking a bite of a single cookie. Nostalgic, right?
