In the video, Laufey can be seen with a basket full of goodies, including Ding Dong mixed nuts, Tomi chips, dried mangoes, Potchi strawberry candy, Cheese Ring, and polvoron.

She described Ding Dong and Tomi as “flavorful” and likened Potchi to strawberry gummy candy while describing polvoron as “buttery in a good way”.

She giggled with delight while tasting dried mangoes, saying the Philippines has the best mangoes in the world. But she admitted that Cheese Ring was her “least favorite” among all.

Laufey is currently in the Philippines for her “Laufey: A Night at the Symphony” show with the Manila Philharmonic Orchestra. “So excited to play here this week and meet you guys,” said Laufey.

The concert took place last May 28 at the PICC Plenary Hall in Pasay City.
