Snack On These Merienda Treats For As Low As P99


Back-to-school season’s in full swing, and we know that, as a student, budgeting a weekly allowance can be quite difficult. Between managing miscellaneous and school expenses, it can be tough to blow your budget on impulse buys, say, on snacks or merienda meals when you’re in desperate need of a pick-me-upper—or when you really need a quick nourishment. 

The same thing applies to working professionals who may be a bit hesitant to spend a portion of their monthly paycheck for something good and satisfying. Yup, that’s adulting 101 for you—and that’s just one of life’s realities. 

Fortunately, there are workarounds to this perpetual (foodie) dilemma. Here are four snacking options that are all pocket-friendly and will fit a 100-peso budget. These days, these finds are truly a gem, and we’re totally here for it. 

Kebab Wraps from Shawarma Shack

Instead of being served on skewers and directly on a plate, Shawarma Shack’s juicy kebabs are already wrapped inside a tender bread, so you can eat them on the go. And, you don’t need to pair them with separate rotis or naans (flatbreads) anymore. 

The best thing? You can get two wraps for only P99, as they’re offering a buy-1, get-1 promo on these Mediterranean munchies until September 30 at their kiosk in SM City San Jose Del Monte. 

They also serve affordable rice mains, shawarma and tikka wraps (of course), and nachos and fries for good measure—all at affordable price points. 

Lasagna Supreme® from Greenwich

A treat for lasagna lovers is Greenwich’s Lasagna Supreme®, which is now only P99 for a solo serving at their branch in SM City Baliwag. 

The classic plate’s loaded with flat noodle sheets sandwiched between layers of beef and lots of cheese in the joint’s signature rich red sauce and creamy béchamel sauce. 

This is a comforting, ‘saucy-sarap’ treat if you’re a student on a tight budget or someone watching their foodie fund this year, but still wanting a full-flavored and filling meal. 

Standard Sausage from BreadTalk

Another to-go option is BreadTalk’s bestselling Standard Sausage—made with chicken sausage rolled in a sweet bun. 

This straightforward snack goes for only P49 at the pastry shop’s branch in SM City Bacoor until month-end. Although it looks unassuming, the golden bun’s actually made with a delicate balance of spices to complement the juicy sausage. 

We suggest pairing this soft and fluffy bun with a cup of coffee or a refreshing cooler on hot, humid days. 

Classic Donut and Large Coffee from Dunkin’

Speaking of coffee—nothing beats the large cup of joe and classic donuts from Dunkin’. This is an iconic pairing like no other, a combo so wholesome and energizing to kickstart your mornings or as a mid-day pick-me-upper. 

Even better: You can now have this dynamic duo for only P99 until the 30th from their SM Seaside City Cebu store and choose from either a hot cup or an iced iteration

Not gonna lie—this is a perfect carbs-and-caffeine cure we all need on bad (and good) days for just P99 a pop. 

Have a heyday with all these good and affordable grub at your go-to SM mall until the 30th—and save some money while you’re at it.
