As the Kadayawan Festival fills the vibrant streets of Davao with colors and energy, I found myself in a familiar situation a few days ago. A friend, who was not a Davaoeño, turned to me on Twitter seeking advice on the best Davao goodies to take home as souvenirs. It's an inquiry that often arises, especially during this festive season when the city's rich culture and flavors are on full display. Without a doubt, one name immediately sprung to mind - Lola Abon's.

For anyone who has spent time in Davao, Lola Abon's is more than a brand; it's a cherished institution. As a local, I know that recommending Lola Abon's as the go-to pasalubong for tourists is a no-brainer. It's a tradition deeply ingrained in our culture to present loved ones with something delightful upon returning from a journey, and Lola Abon's has been the answer to this need for decades.

While Davao is renowned for its succulent Durian and juicy Pomelo, these fruits can be a bit challenging to carry around, especially for those traveling. That's where Lola Abon's steps in as the perfect solution. Their delectable treats are not only a delight to the palate but also conveniently packaged, making them an ideal souvenir to bring back home.
