I never thought there can be yummier polvoron than Goldilocks brand. My childhood friend, Jane gifted to my family these 4 boxes of HOP powdered milk candies before we left the Philippines. I opened the cookies 'n cream flavour and the whole family couldn't stop popping! I heard from a fellow instagramer that the choco covered is the bomb! Can't wait to open it!

FYI from Wikipedia:

polvorón (From polvo, the Spanish word for powder, or dustCebuano: polboron; Tagalogpulburon) is a type of heavy, soft and very crumbly Spanishshortbread made of floursugarmilk, and nuts. They are produced mostly in Andalusia, where there are about 70 factories in that are part of a syndicate that produces polvorones and mantecados. Under the name mantecados, these sweets are a traditional preparation of other areas of the Iberian Peninsula as well.
Polvorones are popular in all Spain and ex-Spanish colonies in Latin America, as well as the Philippines, during the Christmas period. Traditionally they were prepared from September to January but are now available all year round. There are authors who claim a possible Levantine origin, based on a similar sweet known as ghurayba, but the recipe is too simple and one of the traditional main ingredients in the polvorones is pig fat.
