I’ve received weird stares or inquiries from the sisters and the oldies why I put hopia in the fridge. It tastes way better. Imagine my delight when I found this purple pack, together with two other variations, kept cool in the store’s refrigerator. It’s the newly opened store about two blocks away from the apartment. The ube hopia is the best (for me at least). There’s mongo in pink and another one in a green pack.
Of course there’s the usual added cost for retail and the 49-peso brand is a bit pricey compared with the five-peso ones I get from the box in the sari-sari stores but it’s worth it.
This purple hopia pack of four makes any bad (uneventful, disappointing, frustrating,… – you name it) day better.
