Polvoron has become one of the most sought-after items and a favorite gift to give to overseas friends and family. It is primarily made with toasted flour, powdered milk, sugar and melted butter pressed in a special mold.
There is such a huge demand for polvoron that in a survey conducted by the Business section of the Philippine Daily Inquirer last 2007, Goldilock’s Bakeshop named polvoron as their top-selling item—it sold more than their cakes! Polvoron comes in different flavors like Pinipig, Peanut, Pili, Cashew, Cookies & Creme, Classic, and Chocolate.
