From Benguet to Ilocos: Tartland and Baguio Sweets

Tratland and Baguio Sweets

At the FoodPrints shoot at REFMAD Farms in Burgos late last month, I happened to meet Angie and Emma de la Cruz and their siblings who were spending a family reunion, visiting tourist spots in Ilocos. Angie is the lady behind the very successful Tartlland Pasarabo Lengua de Gato. I read 36,000 jars of the melt in your mouth cookies fly out of their stores each month, oh wow, a lot of happy tongues!

Her sister Emma owns Baguio Sweets which produces another Baguio favorite, the peanut brittle, among many others. So kind, they gave me goodies to try.

I was studying in Baguio when lengua de gato was starting to get noticed by vacationers. Smitten too, it became a habit to drop by the market for a jar. Tartland’s is not famous for nothing. The Baguio Sweets peanut brittle is a revelation, great quality, thin and crisp matching that nice fresh taste!

Angie and Emma. if you happen to read this, it was lovely meeting your family! See you in Baguio.
