Mislabeled Hopia Baboy (pork flavored hopia)


My friend bought this hopia baboy. He gnawed some and aske me. ” Is this really hopia baboy (pork) . I tasted it too and found the same conclusion.


We examined the label. These are the ingredients. Flour, sugar, salt, eggs, shortening and mongo.

Maybe should be called “hopia mongo or hopia egg”. Correct me if I’m wrong.

  • I was told in Home Economics classes years and years ago that the reason it is called hopiang “baboy” is because the recipe calls for pork fat or lard. The filling is sweetened kondol and spring onion leaves ( sibuyas na mura) plus flour.
