Oishi Snacktacular is an annual event that my family’s always excited to go to. We’ve attended it every year since three or four years ago when it started. It’s always exciting each time, plus we get to bring home lots of goodies courtesy of the gracious folks of Oishi, undoubtedly the No. 1 snack manufacturer in the Philippines.
The media preview of Oishi Snacktacular 2016 fell on a Friday so I couldn’t tag along all of my kids. Luckily, my teenie twins – Dionne and Dianne – didn’t have a class that day so I excitedly drove with them to MOA. Soon enough, we arrived at the venue and there were already lots of people…
We were so lucky because the first celebrities we saw were Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla, also known as the powerhouse love team known as Kathniel. I was giddy enough to take this photo as they walked on the stage….
But wait, there’s more. We also saw the pretty Alex Gonzaga after she came out of the Snack Shack, where guests were given the chance to fill up a two-foot Oishi giant pack with as many products as they could in just under a minute!
Team O member Ramon Bautista gave the tutorial on how to win in the Cuckoo Blaster booth where one had to wear the cuckoo suit and catch as many balls as you could.
Even though I never ziplined in my life, I agreed to be placed in a harness and then hoisted for the Oishi Snack Catcher challenge. This was the most fun part for me because I was able to get 92 packs of chips in one go. How amazing is that?! lol.
More posing with my daughters. Did you know that Oishi also has a strong presence in other countries in Asia? It’s big in China, Malaysia, Vietnam and even India. So much to be proud of this Filipino brand with the yummiest snacks!
Anyway, I said that Oishi Snacktacular 2016 was filled with people (read: jampacked) and here were just some of the celebrities and beautiful people we saw:
Singer and actor Kean Cipriano –
De La Salle lady spikers Kim Dy, Ara Galang and Kin Fajardo –
Ateneo Lady Eagle Ella De Jesus –
Charo Soriano, Angeline Gervacio and Bea Tan of the Beach Volleybal Republic.
Okay, we’re saving the best for last because the newest member of Team O and endorser for Oishi Cracklings was introduced. And it’s none other than the phenomenal Maine Mendoza!
“Maine is a great addition to the team because she’s down-to- earth and always game,” said Shera Tiu of Oishi. “Maine is a fun person and her expressive face makes her the perfect match for the intense anghasim flavors of Oishi Cracklings.”
Till next year’s superfun Oishi Snacktacular extravaganza! Stay updated with the latest #OishiOWow news on Facebook and @oishiph on Instagram and @oishi_tweets on Twitter by following their social media.
