Earlier in May, everyone’s favorite childhood milk candy Haw Haw made its return as an ice cream flavor. Now, we welcome back yet another nostalgic sweet treat—this time, from the ’80s, and an ultimate favorite after-school snack of Philippine Science High School (Pisay) and Jose Abad Santos Memorial School (JASMS) students.
Known as The Beehive, this childhood favorite is a chocolate-covered treat with marshmallow filling and moist chocolate cake. It got its name exactly from what it is shaped like—a beehive.
Despite being a cult fave among students back then, The Beehive disappeared for a while. However, we’ve got good news for those who either miss or have always wanted to try this Pisay and JASMS favorite: It is now back through Merced Bakehouse & Restaurant.
You can have this chocolate-covered treat delivered to your home by filling out this online order form. Available at P40, Merced Bakehouse & Restaurant encourages store pickup for The Beehive because it might get squashed during delivery.
