As part of Pabling – Herry Kinatloan & Torta history, our dear Lola Esang was a “Katulong” (helper) of an influential Spanish clan in the coastal town of Calape. During the fiesta, they gather in one table to make delicious cookies like galletas, mamon tostado, tajada, and kinatloan.
To preserved freshness, they stocked it in a big air-tight glass jar or the “garapon”.
KINATLOAN is a bracelet-like cookie which derives from a Bisayan word “kinatloan” which means pinching. These techniques used to form a ring that surrounds the cookie. This makes it looks like a bracelet or a bangle.
Kinatloan has no preservatives added and is not too sweet. You can pair it with any of your favorite beverages, be it hot or cold and even ice cream too. Our Lola Esang’s secret recipe handed down to one of her seven offsprings, Pabling, Pabling married to Herry. The legacy continues as we embraced the heirloom recipe.
Today, Pabling – Herry Kinatloan & Torta has been a familiar entity in the delicacies world, especially in Bohol. Through additional facilities, branches, and crews, we are taking a higher level of service to our customers. We thrive to continue to will continue to manufacture delicious delicacies.
It will expand throughout the country and even around the world while maintaining its authenticity and taste.
