See's makes this and they are just as good however what the taste of these almondettes remind me of is the Blums Almondettes from San Francisco. I have nothing to saw except that we totally enjoy eating this. I just wish you'd offer them in bigger quantities.
I gotta be honest, I have been itching to order Felicia's ensaymadas from The Commissariat for the longest time. What had been stopping me was the price, which has been doubled, e kasi nga naman they're all flown in from Bacolod. So do I wait until I could go back to Bacolod just to buy THE BEST ENSAYMADAS I HAVE TASTED EVER!!, or do I just stop being a scrooge about it and order from The Commissariat already? The answer, I waited for a special occasion and ordered a box for my friend who is celebrating her birthday, and ordered a box for myself because it was my idea anyway. Don't get me wrong ok? If you think about it, the price is sulit because those ensaymadas are HUGE & THICC, rich, yellow probably from all the butter and egg yolks. They are so big that I don't think you should finish an entire piece in 1 sitting, but so yummy that you should not judge yourself if you do. Felicia's is one of the reasons why I want to go back to Bacolod again.
Super soft and fresh. Not too sweet. I like that there is no cream and sugar sprinkle on top.
The last box of ensaymada I ordered I gave as gift to a friend who (like me)is a 100% ensaymada aficionado. She received it 3 days after it was flown to Manila and according to her it was “talagang Masarap”!
This is I think my 4th order in a matter of two months. I have sent Felicia’s as gift to friends and relatives who I know loves ensaymadas! And every time I do, I get an appreciative message of how they really like it.
The sweetness is just right and I love to crush it and sprinkle on my ice cream.
