Snack hacks and other thoughts

ONE of the few things I like about on­line events, aside from hav­ing the priv­i­lege to stay home for it, is that when celebri­ties are in­volved, you get to see a dif­fer­ent side to them.

Now that they don’t have a fleet of stylists, makeup artists, as­sis­tants and hair­dressers be­hind their pub­lic ap­pear­ances, celebri­ties are more re­lat­able.

They aren’t as im­pec­ca­bly styled as they usu­ally are, and that’s okay.

The events that have tran­spired in the past few months have also made them more can­did in shar­ing their views and opin­ions.

Tiger Crack­ers re­cently held a Snack Hack ex­trav­a­ganza on Youtube with Kim Chiu and Robi Domingo team­ing up with Bet­tina Car­los and Chef Ger­ick Manalo to show how to make cre­ative dishes us­ing the crack­ers on recipes, such as Mango Hazel­nut Dessert Pizza and Beef Na­cho Crack­ers.

Af­ter the event, there was a Zoom in­ter­view with Kim, Robi, Bet­tina and Kris­tine En­riquez, brand man­ager of Tiger Bis­cuit from Mon­delez Philip­pines.

The event and in­ter­views took place just af­ter Ty­phoon Ulysses hit the coun­try and nat­u­rally, the stars were asked about it, among other things.

“What we’re ex­pe­ri­enc­ing right now is re­ally the ef­fect of cli­mate change. In the long run, marami pang mangya­yaring gan­ito [things like these will con­tinue to hap­pen] if we don’t stop our ways, if we don’t change our life­style, if we don’t have en­vi­ron­men­tal poli­cies. So we have to do some­thing for the en­vi­ron­ment right now,” said Robi.

He also urged peo­ple, par­tic­u­larly the youth, to reg­is­ter to vote in the 2022 elec­tions, cit­ing sta­tis­tics from the re­cent US elec­tions where a record num­ber of young peo­ple voted. “You bet­ter reg­is­ter to vote, la­long-lalo na ang ka­bataan [es­pe­cially the youth]. You have to do that. Right now, the wheels are turn­ing, the gears are turn­ing, and I bet it will turn for the bet­ter­ment of our so­ci­ety.”

Kim, mean­while, shared some thoughts about the things she learned dur­ing quar­an­tine. “Lux­ury stuff like bags and shoes aren’t that im­por­tant pala. Mas im­por­tante ang tao [peo­ple are more im­por­tant]. When I go to the gro­cery, ’ yung im­por­tante lang ta­laga bini­bili ko [I just buy the im­por­tant things],” said the ac­tress.

For Bet­tina, be­ing quar­an­tined has given her more time to spend with her daugh­ter Gummy, who she re­al­ized is a very com­pas­sion­ate hu­man be­ing.

Robi said he sees the pan­demic not as a great equal­izer but as a “great mag­ni­fier.”

“Be­ing quar­an­tined has made me more in­volved. You dont have to be a politi­cian to care about your coun­try.”

Dur­ing the event proper, Kris­tine En­riquez ex­plained that the crack­ers are baked us­ing a spe­cial kind of tech­nol­ogy that gives them a crispy, melt-in­y­our-mouth tex­ture. Also, there are only 120 calo­ries in each pack of Tiger Crack­ers.

You can recre­ate the Beef Na­cho Crack­ers and Mango Hazel­nut Dessert Pizza with Tiger Crack­ers sets. The Tiger Crack­ers Na­cho set in­cludes 1 Mul­tiPack of Tiger Crack­ers Plain, one 45 g pack of Eden Cheese and one 62 g pack of one Cheez Whiz Orig­i­nal, while the Tiger Crack­ers Dessert Pizza set in­cludes, one mul­tipack of Tiger Crack­ers Leche Flan, one can of con­densed milk and one 200 ml pack of fresh milk.

Each bun­dle comes with free­bies like a lim­it­ededi­tion tote bag and the Tiger Crack­ers Food Trip na Good Trip Snack Hacks Guide, which in­cludes a handy recipe guide, cool tips on how to make snack­ing mo­ments more cre­ative, and a QR code that gives you ac­cess to ex­cit­ing pre­views of soon-to-be-re­leased Tiger Crack­ers Snack Hack recipes.

Tiger Crack­ers are avail­able at all lead­ing stores na­tion­wide and in all ma­jor e-com­merce plat­forms, in­clud­ing Shopee, Lazada and Metro­mart.

If you want to watch the on­line event, the re­play will air on Tiger Crack­ers’ Face­book page to­day.
