Admit it or not, we're all snack junkies at heart. Honestly, who can resist a good ol' bag of munchies especially when it's our guilty pleasure? And to celebrate our major love for snacks, Oishi is back at it this year with their annual Oishi Snacktacular fest! Over the weekend, SM City Clark was filled to the brim with snack fans who were treated to a fun lineup of games, activities, and performances!
Joining in the snack party on Day 1, of course, was Crispy Patata ambassador Alex Gonzaga who delighted the crowd with her "Chambe" dance craze. Alex also went around to try the booths with host Sam Purvor, just because our girl is always game for a dose of challenge!
But a party is never complete without great music, right? So, Oishi invited two of our favorite musical sensations, YouTube star Janina Vela, who took the stage on Saturday, and actor Donny Pangilinan, who serenaded us with his chill tunes on Sunday. These two lit up our afternoons just by gracing us with their presence!
Aside from these shining personalities that we got to meet at the event, Oishi Snacktacular 2019 was all about trying out Oishi's range of delectable snacks! But it's not as easy as grabbing a pack and going home. What we love about Oishi's annual affair is how they always come up with fun ways to enjoy their snacks!
Here, we show you the three booths at Oishi Snacktacular 2019 that made hoarding snacks all the more exciting!
1. Fish for Chips
New this year, the Fish for Chips booth challenged us to literally fish for Oishi's seafood-flavored snacks. We didn't back down until our nets were brimming with Fishda, Kirei, Oishi’s newest shrimp snack, Shripon, and more.
Even Janina Vela and Hazel Quing have gone all out and went home with bags full of these crunchy, seafood snacks!
2. Snack Catcher
This year, the crowd favorite Snack Catcher booth is back! We got to be human claws and hoard as many snacks as we can using our body! Who needs another thrill-seeking activity when you got this one where you can even take home your favorite munchies?
Donny Pangilinan tried his luck at the Snack Catcher booth as well, and the level of fun he had was evident in his face! Meanwhile, Wil Dasovich didn't need the beach as he already went swimming in a pool of snacks!
3. Snack Shack
It's a minute to win it at the Snack Shack booth which featured shelves of Oishi snacks. The challenge was to stuff our Oishi 2-foot giant packs with as many snacks as we could in one minute. There was no denying that this one got our competitive spirits on high!
Here's Alex Gonzaga who couldn't resist picking out her fave goodies at the Snack Shack booth!
After we'd had all the fun, Oishi Snacktacular 2019 also indulged us with the O-Chill booth, where we got to choose from the menu of refreshments that included Smart C+ Lemon Squeeze + Yakult, Mais Con Oaties, and Hi Coffee Latte + Coffee Jelly. And to commemorate the festivities, there was also the Shoptacular booth, where we grabbed Snacktacular merchandise like Oishi Friends plushies, printed tees, and comic-inspired tote bags!
It was truly an O, Wow! weekend with Oishi! Enjoying snacks never felt so challenging and thrilling, so we'll definitely see you again next year! Shout out to our Oishi Friends—Pilyo, Waifu, Cuckoo Bird, Panya, and Hippy!
