The Goods MNL

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Simple and sweet is what you can describe the The Goods’ roster of baked fare. Cookies are their signature treats with highlight flavors such as Oatmeal Chocolate Chip and Birthday Cake, but another unique offering is their Lemon Loaf that gives a tangy and zesty end to every bite.

Bake Batch

Espresso Creme Brûlée Buns

What makes Bake Batch standout is the duality of its desserts. If you prefer some light offerings, they have their cute Banana Buns topped with chia seeds. Healthy and fluffy, these bite-sized buns are the way to go for some quick meal-end snacks. But if you prefer something on the more decadent end of the spectrum, their Espresso Creme Brûlée Buns are filled with a rich cream filling made with white chocolate and pure espresso. Whichever you choose, as is their motto, “You deserve this.”

The Good Stuff

Poppy Citrus

Dessert bars such as lemon squares and food for the gods are a common sight during noche buena nights, but consider The Good Stuff’s take on bars instead for your upcoming feast. With just three flavor variants, each is uniquely packed with flavor that will satisfy any sweet tooth. The OG Bar, their standard fare is a buttery caramel bar topped with salted chocolate; The Crack Pie Bar, is an addictive variant made with sugar, butter, and other ingredients that they refuse to disclose; and lastly, rounding out the roster, is their Poppy Citrus bar made with homegrown calamansi and is inpisred from lemon poppy seed muffins.
