Now Trending In The Philippines: Boneless Donuts!

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Why anyone would want bones in their donuts is mind-boggling, but an enterprising bakery in the Philippines has taken its merchandizing to a whole new level.

Shoppers at a leading supermarket in Manila were surprised but delighted to find out that they could actually buy boneless donuts — nicely packaged and for an affordable price. The donuts are a far cry from the colorful, glazed and decorated hole-punched pastries at Dunkin’s.

The boneless donuts were gone from the supermarket shelves in less than an hour after opening.

Facebook Revises Community Standards, Bans Food Porn!

MENLO PARK, California (The Adobo Chronicles, San Jose Bureau) – Ron Thurman (not his real name), was jailed by Facebook for 30 days for violation of the social media platform’s community standards. Thurman did not bother to contest his account suspension and weathered through four weeks isolated from his thousands of peeps worldwide.

Now, Thurman is back on Facebook and he is not taking his release from FB jail sitting down.

As soon as he was back online, Thurman vowed to flood his wall with photos of food — lots and lots of ‘em, to the annoyance of even his top fans.

Facebook also took notice and is fighting back.

Today, Facebook announced its updated community standards that include a ban on posting food, glorious food! It is calling it “food porn.” It comes with a penalty of suspension or account deactivation for repeat offenders.

As for Thurman? He is back in Facebook jail for another 30 days!

Atty. Vince Tañada’s Second Job As Milk Endorser

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – It is a known fact that Atty. Vince Tañada’s films are not doing well at the box office, especially compared to Daryl Yap’s “Maid in Malacañang.” So it is no surprise that he has taken on a second job like many enterprising Pinoys.

Tañada is now a celebrity endorser for Promil and Nido milk, although it is unknown how much he is paid for this new gig.

Along the way, Tañada has taken jabs at another celebrity endorser, the more successful and extremely popular Toni Gonzaga who has endorsed a rival milk product, Lactum.

Bottomline is, it is really up to parents and pediatricians to choose or recommend what’s best for the kids. So this may be the only and last paid commercial endorsement for Tañada.
