We live in a time and age where people are always on the go. Everything is fast-paced. People are always on a hurry to catch that train to work, to beat that work deadline, to submit that school paper and many more. Being always on a rush especially in the mornings causes us to skip breakfast which we all know is a big no-no. As the saying goes, “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.”
That is why we were super stoked that BelVita is now in the Philippines! It is the first-ever breakfast biscuit from Mondelez International which aims to address consumers’ needs for a convenient and healthy snack. BelVita Breakfast was officially launched in the country last February 20, 2018 at B Hotel in Quezon City. The Foodie Station was in attendance, and below, we’ve listed down the 5 things we loved about the event —
When we arrived at the grand ballroom of B Hotel where the launch was being held, we were immediately greeted by a glorious spread of breakfast buffet. Nothing reiterates the importance of having breakfast than a buffet, and BelVita knows it! Guests were treated to a wide array of breakfast choices. There were bacon, eggs, rice, pastries, fresh fruits, salads, and croissants with coffee and hot chocolate. Needless to say, we stuffed our faces before the event kicked-off!
BelVita Breakfast DIY Section
But of course, there is a DIY section for BelVita biscuits wherein you can customize your own biscuit plate. We totally had fun with this one! Oh but the choices were endless, you can opt to add cheese, fresh fruits, honey and cream to your BelVita biscuit. Personally, we loved BelVita with a hefty spread of cheese. The salty and sweet combination gives it that “gourmet” breakfast vibe.
Nutritionist Expert Ms. Eden Ruta Talks About the Importance of Breakfast
Mondelez Philippines brought in Supervising Nutritionist-Dietitian of the Nutrition Foundation of the Philippines, Ms. Eden Ruta to talk about the causes and effects of skipping breakfast, as well as the benefits of having a balance breakfast which can sustain you for the day. We certainly learned a lot and it was such an eye-opener. Many of us forego having breakfast whenever we are in a hurry, but not anymore, thanks to BelVita!
Celebrity sweethearts Karylle and Yael Yuzon as BelVita Brand Ambassadors
Leading busy and hectic lives are celebrity couple Karylle and Yael Yuzon. Karylle is a mainstay on noontime TV Showtime and her husband, Yael is a rock star and main vocalist for the band Sponge Cola. We think they are the perfect Brand Ambassadors for BelVita Breakfast Biscuits! During the event, they talked about their morning routine and how they make it a point to still have breakfast despite Karylle’s early call time and Yael’s late night gigs.
BelVita Breakfast Biscuit
BelVita Breakfast Biscuit was first launched in 2011 in the UK and is now being sold in more than 50 countries. “It is specially designed for breakfast,” said Princess Landicho, Mondelez Philippines Brand Manager. “Just pair it with a serving of dairy products and fruit for a balanced breakfast to help kick start your morning with energy. It is also a great way to snack on the run because of its convenient packaging.”
BelVita Biscuits comes in two delicious flavors — Milk & Cereal and Honey & Chocolate! We’re honestly torn of which of the two flavors we like best because both are really good and healthy as well. The Milk & Cereal has a light sweet taste while the Honey & Chocolate is stronger on taste and the honey flavor is really evident. It is made with whole grain cereals, packed with vitamins and minerals such as Vitamin A, B1, B2, B3, calcium, iron and zinc.
BelVita Breakfast Biscuit’s 4-piece box retails for P30.50 and the single 20g pack worth P8.25 which contains two delicious biscuits. Grab yours now in leading supermarkets nationwide! 🌾
