Toasted Pastillas by MAJ Sweet Shoppe

Thursday, February 06, 2014
Of all the sweet native Filipino delicacies there is, I would have to say that Pastillas is definitely my favorite. I always admire it for its simplicity and delicately sweet taste. Pastillas recipe usually calls for sugar and milk, and that's it. While you cannot do much about it, you can have it toasted. Just like what MAJ Sweet Shoppe dishes out for their customers; Toasted Pastillas.

Pastillas, A Native Filipino Sweet Delicacy Pastillas Has Given A New Twist Through Toasted Pastillas by MAJ Sweet Shoppe
It was weeks back when I was given packs of Toasted Pastillas by MAJ Sweet Shoppe to try. Purist may say that pastillas should be delicately soft with just enough resistance to the bite for its sugar-laden outer covering. But then in Bulacan, one of the places I know that take their pastillas seriously, they do have this pastillas "tostado". This is pretty much the same thing.

MAJ Sweet Shoppe is a home based business owned by a lovely lady named Michelle Jacutina. It was way back in 2009 when she started making pastillas for her classmates while attending college. School responsibilities however served as a hindrance for Michelle to continue with this delicious hobby.

Fast forward to September of 2013, Michelle decided to take her passion for making pastillas on the different level by opening MAJ Sweet Shoppe. Although still home based, Michelle took advantage of the world wide web to slowly introduce her products.

By committing to continue her passion and to use premium ingredients for her pastillas, Michelle is slowly but surely gaining popularity among online sellers and buyers through her pastillas. She opened her door to re-sellers to widen the reach of the product since her business is located in Malolos City, Bulacan.

Currently, MAJ Sweet Shoppe is selling two variants of pastillas; Creamy and Toasted. 

The Creamy Pastillas is the usual kind we are all familiar with. Soft and delicate, the kind that easily melts in the mouth. The Toasted variant however is foiled in toasted sugar which lends a slightly crisp outer covering.

Instead of the usual cylindrical shape, these pastillas are shaped into mini nuggets making it easier to just pop into mouth. While the taste is impressive in itself, the smell adds an enticing flair making it all the more delicious.

MAJ Sweet Shoppe's Toasted Pastillas is priced at Php125 per pack, but they also have a special pricing for whole sale. Entrepreneurs who want to resell their products are also welcome.

  1. Hi Yedy,

    First time on your blog. I was browsing for interesting food blogs around Metro Manila when came upon a link to your article about toasted pastillas. Coming from a town called Gapan in Nueva Ecija which is right next to San Miguel, Bulacan, pastillas has been my favorite sweet since I was little. But I think whoever came up with the idea of toasting pastillas certainly has a very mature culinary imagination. reminds me of deep fried butter that I sampled on a trip to Dallas, TX. I am moving back to the Philippines this coming May and would certainly have to try this wonderful concoction. Thanks for this wonderful article. More power to you and your blog.

    1. Hi Pete,

      Thank you for dropping by my blog. My mother is also from Nueva Ecija and I grew up eating downright delicious pastillas from Bulacan. I am not sure if you are familiar with the pasalubong store called Sevillas Sweets. That is where I tasted the best pastillas I have had in my life. But this toasted pastillas by MAJ Sweet Shoppe is also delicious on its own, a different take on the usual. I hope you could try this when you get back here in Manila :)
