Just How Fun was Oishi Snacktacular 2016?


I’ve been hearing a lot of good things about Oishi Snacktacular. It’s now on its 3rd year and I just could not, would not pass up the chance to attend. I was so glad to have gotten an invitation to this 8-bit inspired event that was held last July 15-17, 2016 at the SM Mall of Asia Music Hall.

The boys were so excited when they saw this box of invitation. “Minecraft!”, they shouted. LOL! Seriously though, the invitation is super cool, suggestive of a super cool event too. Read on to find out which parts of the event were the best!

With an invitation this cool, who in his right mind, would pass this up? Wagon not included.

Entrance to the Oishi Snacktacular is FREE and you will get a Pass to Wow like this. It’s like a passport where you go to each attraction and have it stamped when you’ve completed the activity. You get a T-shirt as a prize for completing all 7 attractions. Plus, at the end of the event period, the one who gets the most points will get a major prize as well.

Oishi Snack Catcher

Dive in and grab all you can for only P200. While the entrance to the event is free, a fee is collected per activity. The amount differs per activity.

This was the first activity I lined up for. I had to wait 40 minutes before it was my turn. It looked really fun though so I endured the long wait.

In this activity, the participant gets to be the human crane that grabs goodies, much like those in arcades. While waiting, I watched how others succeeded and failed and formed a strategy of my own on how to do it.

When it was my turn however, I forgot all about strategy and just dove in and grabbed. Haha! I got 60 packs, a far cry from the record of close to 200! I wonder how he/she managed that! The experience was super great though. How often do you get to try this in your life?

Oishi Cuckoo Blaster

Catch as many balls as you can and win the equivalent number of snacks for only P100.

This looks super easy from a third person’s view so I lined up for this right after I did the snack catcher. I just had to post this photo because I love how the red of his shirt and socks complemented the cuckoo costume! πŸ˜€ The orange pingpong ball was coming right at him and that’s what he’s supposed to catch into his big belly of a costume.

There I was donning my Cuckoo costume, ready to be blasted by pingpong balls.

OMG, it was sooooo much harder in reality! In hindsight, I should have removed my socks as it was so slippery and I couldn’t run to catch the balls. I think I got less than 20 on this. Huhuhu! Oh well, it was good fun and exercise anyway! πŸ˜€

Oishi Snack Shack

Fill your 2-ft giant Oishi pack in 60 seconds for only P295. 

This was the last on my list as I had to go pick up the kids from school. The line was still long on this but I knew I had to try it. It was done in batches though so that made things a little faster.

I was so glad to have done it because of how happy the kids were when they saw this giant pack of Bread Pan! I filled it up with a few packs of cereal (I didn’t know Oishi had cereals!), some chips, and of course, some Bread Pan. πŸ˜€

After all those activities, I grabbed a slushee and it was truly refreshing!

Make your own oishi snack for only P20.

  7. My, that is really fun! It’s like a theme park and game show in one! The human crane, the make-your-own snack…add to that the fact that Oishi products are really delicious! My mag-ama are crazy about Bread Pan, while Oaties drinks are my favourite milk & chocomilk drinks!

  8. Ang kulit nung unang activity! Haha and I’m also surprised with the second activity I thought you were just literally going to catch the balls. With the big clothes you had I thought it was enough. Hindi pala haha. I’m glad to read you guys had such a good time there. Thanks for sharing! πŸ™‚

  9. I’m addicted to Bread Pan! Oishi has been around for quite awhile and has been part of my childhood. Good to know kids these days can still enjoy their products. ☺

  10. Ang saya naman nito :)) When I was still working, I remember a client who happens to be trucking provider for Oishi products. Grabe din magpadala sa office ng Oishi snacks :))
