Square, flaky, and perfect for a snack, Jacobina Biscuits have become the most famous homegrown product of Mendez. According to owner Fe Panganiban, his grandfather Paterno Noceda named the biscuits after a beautiful woman he once met.
Noceda Bakery has been making them since 1947 and little has changed in the baking process over the years. Made of flour, sugar, milk, and butter, the dough is cut into tiny squares and baked for about 30 minutes in a wood-fueled brick oven.
Sold in snack packs (P27 to P55) and family packs (P125), the biscuits are available daily in the bakery in Mendez and in another branch in Tagaytay. The product is also exported to Filipino stores in other Asian countries and the United States.
