Last week my friends and I had the most interesting discussion about the foods that were definitely more fun in the Philippines. After a few rounds of brainstorming, which resulted to a salivating mouth and churning stomach we had all agree that Peanut Butter was undeniably one of the foodstuffs that was more fun here in the Philippines.

Luckily, just about everyone has a smartphone now, and this amazing device has helped millions of foodies across the world.

Studies even show that by 2015, there could be close to 2 billion smartphone users. In the Philippines, with cheaper smartphone lines like MyPhone and Cherry Mobile available, the smartphone penetration rate is expected to hit 50% by 2015.
