We here at the Candy HQ are always proud of our Candy Cuties. So whenever we spot them in commercials, it's always a happy event for us. Check out some of the ones we saw by reading through the list below.

  1. Emil Khodaverdi for McDonald's 

If you're a regular Candy ready, you'll know that Emil has always been a favorite of ours. You can see him posing alongside Candy Cuties Mathew Custodio and Neil Dy for Bench or on the site—because he also posed as one of our male models for our sitch photos!

  1. Justin Quirino for Metrobank

Justin first appeared in the pages of Candy in 2006. To frequent Candy Fair attendees, he's also known as one of our favorite hosts for the hottest teen event in the country. Aside from hosting events, this cutie keeps himself busy as one of the VJs of 99.5 Play FM.

  1. LA Aguinaldo for Coffeemate

How can we ever forget LA, right? He's become one of the country's favorite brand ambassadors since he first appeared in our pages. Nowadays, you can see his face in countless ads for brands like Lazada and SM. Did we mention he also appeared on the cover of our July issue this year?

  1. Vince Vandorpe for McDonald's

We're certainly not the only ones who fell in love with Vince's smile. This #NiceBroSquad member can also be spotted in various brand campaigns, like McDonald's and Folded & Hung. We also recently spotted him walking on the runway for SM during JaDine: The Hottest Fair at the SMX Convention Center.

  1. Alex Diaz for Oishi

One of our favorite Candy Cuties has come a long way, too. The Candy Armada member doesn't only act on TV and movies (hi, She's Dating the Gangster!). He also hosts, dances, and of course, appears in cute commercials like this one of Oishi.

Cold Food

The most thrilling and delightful moment of any school day is opening up your baon during breaks. There is always so much excitement in unveiling your homemade meal and snacks housed inside matching heat-insulating containers. Because preparing packed meals is an age-old tradition of showing parental love, loved ones pour effort into curating a nutritious meal accompanied by a selection of side dishes, desserts, and beverages daily; it reminds us that we are being taken care of, even from far away.

Baon plays a significant role in a Filipino childhood. Almost every Filipino child comes to school with baon made especially for them by their parents or household helpers. Even Filipinos in the labor force continue to bring baon for varying reasons: to save money, recycle leftovers, cater to personal taste, or attend to special needs. Nonetheless, eating your baon is a heart-warming experience that allows Filipinos to bring a piece of home along with them wherever they go.

Even other cultures practice making packed lunch. In Japan, mothers create bento--Japanese meals in partitioned boxes. Because of the popularity of bento, trends have emerged, such as the Kyaraben, or character-themed bento. Naturally, Japanese parents and students began competing for who had the cutest and tastiest bento, and this is similar to what I have witnessed in my own childhood. I remember seeing my classmates sharing their snacks and lunches. They would compare and boast about their parents' or yayas’ cooking. In my case, I never had the chance to join in the competition or indulge in homemade cooking. Up until this day, I have never brought any baon to school.

For a long time, I envied others. As trivial or petty as it may seem, not having baon became a problem for my grade school self. During that time, I had to sit in a separate cafeteria away from my friends because the kids who bought food were assigned to sit elsewhere. You could consider me spoiled, but I wanted to experience something most kids did. I had food at home, so what made it so hard to bring some with me to school?

Now that I am on my final year in high school I have come to realize the benefits of purchasing my own food. Since I spent on food everyday, I learned to budget my allowance at a young age. Over the years, I learned to practice self-control whenever I wanted to eat more greasy fries and drink sweetened beverages. I have tasted the strangest viands at the school cafeterias, and I have repeatedly satiated myself over my latest delicious discoveries. Despite the struggles, I am thankful that I have never had baon because of what I have learned. Not to mention, I never had to experience eating cold food.
