Favorite Panetone?

Postby woodchuck » Thu Dec 22, 2016 11:08 am

I am still shocked to see as many as 20 different panetone brands in some stores.
What is your favorite; in 2 categories - under 25 soles & above 25 soles?
I realize there are exotic ones, like pisco infused; but just the normal ones for now.
Thanks & have a Merry Christmas! :roll:

I love Donofrio panetone but all panetone above 25 soles are good , each one with a unique taste.

Anyone have any comments on the pisco-infused panetone that is available at some Wong's?
The cost is some 70 soles; for me better to buy a regular panetone & a bottle of pisco.
Thanks. :roll:

I have tried several different brands this year (and last year). Besides the dried fruit contents, I could not make out a significant difference in terms of quality and taste. Much of a muchness, to be honest. Even difference between cheap (15.-) and expensive (35.-) I found hard to tell.

What is hard to tell? They are all the tastiest breads you ever had or are they all dog food?

Little known fact: the fruit (besides the raisins) is often flavored and colored watermelon rind. I agree with you though.. most of the panetons in the same price range seem to taste pretty much the same.. But, i hear a lot of people go on and on about Donofrio, but that just might be nostalgia talking.

I found something interesting...

The panetón they sell at Wong or Metro supermarkets are manufctured by the same companies who makes other brands... Those two are the best to me, more soft and moist... :roll: It is a taste thingy. And they're not expensive at all :shock:
