Goldilocks Polvoron

So my friend went to Philippines and bought some nice snacks (kinda of like candies to them) I heard that this brand is pretty much the household brand that everyone knows in the Philippines. I don't know if you can get these in Singapore.

On the website it says: " The polvoron is similar to English Shortbread; a mixture of toasted flour, milk, butter, and sugar cooked and then molded. Available in the plain and flavored variety (ube, with peanut, pinipig)".

To me, it has the texture smilar to a sugary powdery/paste that is very smooth and crumbles easily in the mouth.

Cashew: The cashew flavor contains bits of cashew nuts in the middle.

Peanut: The peanut one taste like those peanut candies rectangles that I used to eat when I was younger. The only difference is that the one I used to eat is a little coarser and the Goldilocks ones are really fine.

Cookies n cream: This is one of my favourite. There are bits of chocolate cookies in it. Kinda of like eating a chunk of powdered milk with cookies bits.

Coffee crumbles: This one tasted like eating coffee powder with nuts. It strange but I kinda of like it. Kinda like eating dried cappucino. Haha.

Pinipig: This one has got rice crisps in the middle of it. Tasted like wholegrain cereal for breakfast.

Original: Pretty much milk powder chunk.

I think I reached my limit by eating all the above at once with a cup of green tea. Too sweet to eat at one go. Probably have like one or two at a time.
