Halabos na Hipon sa Royal Tru-Orange
Halabos na Hipon sa Royal Tru-Orange. You may love or hate this dish, where in a world would you cook using Royal Tru-Orange softdrink. Most of our Halabos recipes are cooked using Sprite or 7-Up, most likely you yourself or your parents, all this time have been using Sprite or 7-Up when steaming your seafood or as marinade for your favorite BBQ. Now we are on the same direction. All carbonated drinks are basically the same, the only difference is the flavor. Logically if we can use Sprite or 7-Up on our Halabos why can’t we use Royal Tru-Orange or any other orange flavored carbonated drinks?
