It’s thrilling to see unique food products made by Davao chefs and home cooks. Here’s something that might tickle your fancy: flavored Brazo de Mercedes.
This new approach to the delectable dessert goes by the name Flazo, which appears to be a play on the words “flavor” and “brazo”. These bite-sized desserts come in original custard, pandan, and chocolate, as well as the new variants ube and lemon custard.
Flazo carries the taste and aroma that you would expect from a traditional Brazo de Mercedes — sugary, light and airy, and decadent at the center. The different flavors bring excitement to the palate, with each flavor giving the dessert a unique identity.
The cute pastries are the brainchild of Joey Sy-Domingo, a professor from UIC and one of the DJs of the now-defunct (and totally missed by Top 40 listeners) 105.9 Mix FM.
Flazo is indeed “flavored with love and inspired by Brazo,” as the brand’s tagline says. If you’re looking for a clever twist to the dessert favorite, I recommend taking a bite — or a box — of Flazo.
