Oh My Custaroons!

Have you ever heard of Custaroons?  It's obviously a compound word for custard and macaroons - sounds interesting as it sounds yummy!

Only one store in the country sells this heavenly dessert - The Custaroonery Manila located right inside the compound of St. Pio Chapel. Every year on Holy Thursday we go to St. Pio Chapel for its one of a kind Station of the Cross, where you have to carry a cross literally while doing it, and we never miss the Custaroons.

Custaroonery Manila

A Custaroon is simply made up of a thin layer of chewy and buttery crust of macaroon on top, and a thick layer of creamy, soft custard flan goodness beneath it. It's that simple, and yet so good. It's available in regular and bite size. You can also get it with a twist, the Cheese Custaroon, though I still prefer the original. The classic always prevails.

I heart Custaroons!
