For may of us, a meal is never complete without dessert. And when dining at Cebu’s weekend food fair Sugbo Mercado, Briquito Silvanas is one of the favorite dessert choices by many. Made with cashew meringue mini cake on a popsicle stick which comes in oodles of flavors, Briquito Silvanas is rapidly gaining a fanbase amongst sweet treat lovers.
My nephews and niece recently sampled 12 varieties of Briquito Silvanas, and these on-the-go-bite-sized-goodness seem to be one of those eats that will leave a mark, making you crave occasionally for a serving or two of the melt-in-your mouth dessert.
We Cebuanos are known to be one of the pickiest consumers, most of the time demanding to get our money’s worth for every cent spent. Briquito Silvanas has put together a dessert that’s pleasing and delectable to the taste that is made with high-grade ingredients, yet pitched at a reasonable price. A delicious dessert at a price that’s just right!
Briquito Silvanas: It’s Inception
Derived from their mom’s original recipe of the family’s classic favorite moist chocolate-coated Silvanas Cake, the owners tried to make it smaller than the usual size, uniquely placed it on a popsicle stick and made it available in a range of flavors. Briquito Silvanas kicked-off selling at their home address during the third quarter of last year and debuted in November 2015 at Food.ish, a food festival at Linear Park and Ayala Center Cebu. Presently, Briquito Silvanas has been a mainstay at Cebu’s weekend food fair – Sugbo Mercado.
What does Briquito mean?
The name “Briquito” is an endearment coined from two words – the owner’s son’s name and “poquito” the Spanish word for little; hence, the brand’s tagline, “On-the-go-bite-sized-goodness.”

I personally love the Pistachio and White Chocolate and Almonds flavors! Both varieties start with a nutty crunch, then to a sweet soft buttery meringue bite, which then melts harmoniously together in the mouth with a sweet, nutty and a tinge of salty jolt. Yum!
