So many food trends popped up during quarantine. Some of them have passed, like the dalgona coffee and pancake cereal (does anyone still have the patience to make those?), while you may still be loving the newer fads, like ube cheese pandesal and sushi bakes. These food trends are hit-or-miss, but we think the milky cheesy donut trend will stay for a bit longer.
A milky cheese donut is essentially a long piece of bread filled with melted cheese and coated in sweet milk powder and powdered sugar. Think bicho-bicho, but with milk powder and cheese filling. If you’re looking for something new for your merienda and you love sweets just like any other Pinoy, then this is probably for you. Check out where you can get them.

Another place to get the milky cheesy ube goodness is Sweet History Boutique. They offer the classic milk and cheese combination, but you also have the option of red velvet or ube.
While these donuts look more like pandesal-shaped and less roll, they’re still as good as you can imagine them to be. These munchkins are still your perfect merienda.
