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!
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.
Here’s a map of the attractions in the event.
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! 😀 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! 😀
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. 😀
Refresh the Smart way with a Smart C+ slushee for only P20!
After all those activities, I grabbed a slushee and it was truly refreshing!
Oishi Smart C drinks, yum!
Oishi Make Your Own Snack
Make your own oishi snack for only P20.
It was too bad that I didn’t have the time to try this. It must have been fun to customize my own snack. 😀
Oishi’s iconic Team O members were also there to grace the event. The Team O consists of Daniel Padilla, Kathryn Bernardo, Ramon Bautista, Alex Gonzaga, Slater Young, and Elmo Magalona. Maine Mendoza, Oishi Ribbed Crackling’s endorser was also introduced as Team O’s newest member.
While I missed the other attractions, I was so glad to have done the must-try ones. Super super fun! Plus, I got to take home lots and lots of these Oishi snacks! To my school team members, snacks on our next meeting is on me! Hahaha!
