Quarantine Food Hype, is it worth your Money?

During quarantine, half of the people I know became dancers and lipsingers on TikTok. The other half, became bakers. Due to the rise of people cooking and baking, the quarantine food hype became a thing.

First, there was the UBE CHEESE PANDESAL.

I gave it a try and I WAS NOT IMPRESSED. I don't know about you guys but this was just pandesal or bread that was colored purple so it was called ube and the cheese was barely there. I was so disappointed that I didn't even bother taking a photo of it.

Thankfully, a friend of mine saved this food hype for me because he made a LEGIT UBE CHEESE PANDESAL. He's the owner of Theo's Bakeshop and if it wasn't for this bakeshop, I would have said that UBE CHEESE PANDESAL needs to be thrown out.

What I realized is that you need to be careful where you get your food hype from.If you get it from the wrong baker, then it will definitely be just a hype.

Second hype I tried was the BAKED KANI SUSHI.

I ordered one and that was a complete FAILURE. I posted about it and another friend of mine who makes it sent me her creation. This one, I fell in love with. Then another friend sent me her version and the rest is history. If you wanna get legit and worth your money Baked California Roll, Jen is the person you need to reach out to.

I literally have to stop myself from ordering again and again because my budget would just die.

Last of the food hype that I allowed myself to spend on is the BLACK KUTSINTA. This one is a NO GO for me. Just buy the ordinary kutsinta from your street vendor. Cheaper, tastier, and a classic.

This one is just literally a waste of your money.

So there you go. I hope my little guide helps you decide on what you should or should not try.

I heard that the next fad will be something about bibingka and sweets. Are you down for that?

  1. Oh, the California roll baked looks delicious as well as the hygienic packaging. Hopefully your review will guide many people.
    Greetings from Indonesia.

  2. I loved your post so much! I didn’t become a dancer in the quarantine time or a baker. I was already a baker before quarantine! I enjoyed this so much and laughed so hard! Thank you so much for this post and your tips

  3. I don't really know what that black thing is but it hardly looks inviting at all - And I suppose one baker is just better than the other - you have to know where to go I suppose :)

  4. Mmmm you are making me super hungry, this all looks delish. Awesome post!

  5. I have literally not even heard of any of these. Apparently, I live under a rock! I'll be looking forward to hearing the one about the sweets, though.

  6. These all sound fun and delicious. I love trying new foods and sweets. Quarantine has my husband cooking and baking more. lucky me!

  7. oh wow these all looks so delicious and tasty and even it sounds quite safe..glad you shared this with us..Thanks indeed...

  8. That baked california roll looks really yummy. Where I can order it?

  9. Nicely written. The California roll looks appetizing to me but I’ve never tried any of these. Great work. I’m not much of a baker.

  10. I've heard of the ube cheese pandesal and I would love to try it out sometime! Thank you for reminding us to remember to buy from the right sellers too!

  11. I can def. relate. While in quarantine it's all about the food.

  12. I am not on Tik Tok so I didnt realize it was quarantine hype food. Now Tik Tok did introduce me to The only Hawaaian theme Chik Fil A that is in Ga which was fun...I still dont have Tik Tok someone told me!

  13. Well I've always loved baking. Earlier I
    didn't have the time and now that I do I think it's the best thing to do for me. :)
