I visited both the Bohol Bee Farm and their store/cafe on Alona Beach. Both were exceptionally clean, well-organized and packed full of locally sourced products. The employees were extremely helpful and the efficient. They give regular tours of the Garden’s if you have time.
I will review two things that I thought were exceptionally great - honey banana chips and their special Halo Halo. First the banana chips. Banana chips are a dime a dozen, even in America. However, their chips, glazed with their honey raise the bar of banana chips three levels. They were so hideously sweet I couldn’t stop eating them till the whole bag was gone. Hard to describe, but take my word for it, these aren’t your standard tasting banana chips.
Second, I stopped by their outlet on Alona Beach after a day of snorkeling and swimming. I had been craving a Halo Halo since I arrived on Panglao Island a few days beforehand. I had heard Buzz Cafe had It so I headed on over. The cafe is situated on the second floor above their retail outlet. I ordered the Halo Halo with Coconut and Ube ice creams on top.
This again wasn’t your usual Halo Halo with ingredients from a jar. It was filled with mostly fresh fruit and long pieces of freshly scraped buko. However, it was their ice creams that made it special. The Coconut ice cream was exceptional. I enjoyed eating (slurping) it while watching the goings on at Alona Beach below me.
Perfect ending to a long hot day on and in the water.
