Tale of Fedhz Polvoron

I’m not just promoting Marce Fedhz’ homemade Polvoron here but highlighting the story that brought this good-tasting Polvoron to life, better yet read her heart-breaking story so you would know how important this candy is to what she is right now – a successful blogger and boss of her own online business.

Learn from the story of this inspirational lady, mom, and friend.

I got a bagful of Polvoron from Fedhz’ mom, repacked and send them as Christmas gifts for my daughter’s and son’s teachers.

I miss her Polvoron already. 🙂
