We are loving Gigi’s Custaroons at the moment and we are glad that we insisted on paying for this box so that we can blog about it. The cheese flavor is the best and it comes with a nice blue pastel-colored box.
Essentially, it is custard cake with macaroons on top but I would describe it as a dense leche flan with roasted chewy coconut on top. Just imagine eating a concentrated sweet piece of butter, cream and cheese. The coconut acts as pampaalis ng suya instead of the typical walnut or other kinds of nuts.
It is too sweet but you can indulge in one piece for dessert from time to time. We would usually cut it up into 6 pizza pieces (like any typical Filipino family would do). I could feel my blood sugar shooting up with each tiny piece. I do hope Gigi creates a Custaroons Light version…

looks yummy. how big is the piece? thanks! 🙂
It is as big as the palm of an adult’s hand or it is as big as the
circumference of a beer bottle.
“cut it up into 6 pizza pieces (like any typical Filipino family would”
— This made me laugh. My family is absolutely devoted to dessert, and it would NEVER occur to us to cut up a small thing like that into 6 pieces (unless we had only one)! And just to show how subjective taste is, you declared the custaroon too sweet, while Lori said it wasn’t. Personally, I’m a huge fan of sugar, so you know which camp I’d be on. NO Custaroons Light for me! 😉
I’ve been wanting to try Custaroons since Lori blogged about it. And now you’ve really made me crave! I just wish they had a Makati pick-up point. 🙁
Thanks Katrina for the comment. Yes taste is definitely subjective and
biased towards a lot of factor. You should try it soon… yummy 🙂
ohh it is big 🙂
hi jugs. the custaroons come in 3oz but i also have bite sizes wihch are 3/4oz only – these you could eaasily pop into your mouth 🙂
hi katrina. i go to makati once a week. for my customers from makati, i usually meet up with them in rockwell. let me know if you want to order and i will just meet up with you there 🙂
sorry jigs, i butchered your name!
sana you’ll join bazaars din =) There is a Baker’s fair at Rockwell all weekends of May.
I love it very much! It’s a blend of custards and macaroons in one.
