I always ask Chari to put together a box of chocolate/ caramel flavored ones for my non-Filipino friends. They always look forward to receiving them!

we ordered 1 dozen of chari's pick, every flavor is tasty and the bread is buttery soft. we loved the quezo de bola and ube flavor, my sister in law tried it and she wanted to order soon. sian c.
I first tried these at the LA food fest. The next day I put in my order!! The ube is my favorite and I will definitely be ordering again!!
I've had these ensamadas before from my sister in law but when I saw them at the OC Night Market, I had to get a couple more. Little did I know it was going to create a late=night preggo-saur craving resulting in me ordering 1/2 doz ensamadas, obsessively tracking when it was supposed to arrive, and then devouring all 1/2 doz in a matter of a couple days. Needless to say, with another month left of this pregnancy, I may be placing another order for a full dozen this time. My favorites in order are: Ube, Oreo, and Red Velvet.
Was able to purchase four boxes of the mixed chari boxes as Mother's Day gifts and they all LOVED IT! What's amazing is that I was able to purchase them abroad since I wasn't in the US at the time, so for a company to accept international transactions was definitely a huge plus! They all came in a cooler packaging to keep the product fresh. The added star is for Chari being able to satisfy my request on the choices for each box. I knew it was a long shot to be able to get the flavors I wanted, but she was able to send each of my orders with the exact requests. So she definitely takes the time to satisfy each and every one of her customers! And of course the rest of the stars - totally 5 of course! All goes toward the taste! Everyone I got it for LOVE IT! (The ref cheese, bola bola, uber, dulce de leche, etc are all amazing) Its nice to see twists on Filipino food staples, and this twist had definitely made the right turns! Keep up the yummy work! Will definitely be ordering from you again, Chari! :)
We absolutely love these! love the presentation and they delivered it right on time. More importantly, very delicious. Love the contemporary twist to the ensaymada. Will definitely consider this for future.
Don't hesitate to order these. They are simply the best, and most contemporary rendition of the traditional pastry, without losing the integrity of the original recipe. I sent the Holiday selection to my family in Florida and they absolutely loved it! Thanks, Chari for crafting these tasty treats.
Fell in love with the Nutella Mocha Ensaymadas so had to share and ship them out to some of my friends and family. Great gift idea . I might just be a regular.
I sent this as a birthday gift to my friend. The first one she ate was "heavenly with butter oozing on the flaky bread!" Her favorites were the classic and the ube. She also loved the strawberries/choco and the butter/choco. The last one "disappeared" & she was quite upset 'coz she wasn't planning to share!!! She didn't know what flavor it was, but was sure that it would have been "delish" as well! Thanks again, Chari! You & your ensaymadas made someone's birthday very, very special! Mahalo and Aloha, ~Lillian~
The other flavors felt like eating bread with butter and sugar. My son loved the Nutella one.
