Three Reasons Why Piattos Supersized Is the Perfect Power Hour Snack


Local snack brands have come and gone, but Piattos remains a staple for snack-loving Pinoys of all ages. Are you as excited as we are for its new Supersized addition?

Looking for a snack to devour while tuning in on monster movies like Godzilla vs. Kong? Itching for a snack to nibble on while you beat your own high score? Craving for some brain food to refill your creative juices? Or maybe, you’re just a genuine lover of potato chips in general? In all of these cases, we can certainly agree that a bag of Supersized Piattos makes any pursuit a worthwhile one. After all, every exhilarating occasion is always worthy of being its own Piattos me-time.

The More the Merrier

Piattos is nothing short of a local snacking icon. The beloved brand has sat at the top of every sari-sari and convenience store shelf in the country, Jack ‘n Jill hasn’t shied away from shelling out fresh takes of the snack through the years.

The Supersized variant was first introduced in late 2018; and Pinoy snackers instantly fell in love with holding a big bag of Piattos that held bigger servings overall. However, the brand-new SKU also brought with itself a second supersized twist in its sleeve.

Heftier Hexagons, Same Terrific Taste

If you’re worried that Piattos’ latest upgrade will drastically alter the tried-and-tested formula of the potato chip itself—good news. The big-time snack still lovingly retains the signature yum-factor that makes indulging on it such an unforgettable experience, but in much larger proportions as they increase each individual chip size into bigger, bolder chips.

If you feel like taking a trip down memory lane, we’re issuing a friendly challenge for you to finish the whole bag again just like you did as a kid. We have to warn you, though. Just like yourself, your childhood favorite chichirya has grown a ton since the first time you had a bite. Fortunately, Piattos’ bursting flavor that’s equally dusted on every piece, its crunch that most snacks can only dream of, and its appetizing factor that leaves you wanting more, have all faithfully remained intact.

A Brand-New Flavor Arrives

The Supersized Piattos in 2018 saw itself arrive solely under the delectable Cheese flavor with the classic blue wrapper. This time, it’s coming with a new flavor – the zingy Sour Cream & Onion variant.

The rousing blend of tart, tangy and salty tastes will match all the energy levels of your Piattos me-times perfectly.

It’s a no-brainer that massive occasions require equally massive snacks. Piattos’ transformation to Supersized proportions will leave you grabbing truckloads of it for all the me-time occasions you know you’ll have. With the touted 170-gram serving size, each bag is exactly twice the size of the current largest bag of Piattos. This should give you—and me both—the long-awaited chance to grab a bite of these flavor-packed treats without having to worry if we’re either leaving enough to share to our equally-hungry friends, or if we’ll even have enough to keep munching to our heart’s content on our own.

Ready to get in on the Supersized action? Make sure to drop by Jack ‘n Jill’s official Shopee and Lazada stores to get a bag or more of the new Supersized Piattos.

Godzilla vs Kong Is The Epic Showdown 58 Years In The Making

An epic battle between two epic monsters

Godzilla vs Kong manages to deliver in terms of the action and set-pieces, as long as you don’t take the human aspect too seriously.

Godzilla and King Kong are considered two of the most iconic movie monsters in film history. Even if you have not seen any Godzilla or King Kong movie, you probably have heard of these monsters or seen them in other pop culture media. Their last fight was in the early 60s and ever since the start of the modern MonsterVerse with 2014’s Godzilla, the succeeding movies in the series have been building up to the inevitable showdown of two of cinema’s iconic monsters. Godzilla vs Kong, for the most part, succeeds at what it does best, mind-blowing action that is best seen on the biggest screen possible. Yet it also has the same problem that has plagued the other MonsterVerse movies, the human characters feel one-note and are not that fleshed out.

An Underwhelming Story From Two Angles

The filmmakers manage to give a credible excuse as to why these two would fight one another. This is because Godzilla vs Kong splits itself into two different narratives, one concerning King Kong, and the other concerning Godzilla. Though both aren’t particularly exciting.

For King Kong, the main players are Nathan Lind (Alexander Skarsgård) Ilene Andrews (Rebecca Hall), and her adopted daughter Jia (Kaylee Hottle). The two scientists are not particularly memorable as they mainly serve to give backstory and exposition to what is happening. The least interesting character is Skarsgård’s Lind since he is a new character for the movie, and the audience is given little to no motivation to care for him. Hottle’s Jia stands out out the most though as her character manages to humanize Kong’s character. She is the only one in the movie who can communicate effectively with Kong and they form a bond with one another which brings out “humanity” in Kong. King Kong has a pretty active narrative arch here since he does quite a bit in this movie and even grows as a character—figuratively and literally.

Madison Russell (Millie Bobby Brown), former Apex employee Bernie Hayes (Brian Tyree Henry), and Madison’s friend, Josh Valentine (Julian Dennison) follow Godzilla’s story. The three of them are trying to find out why Godzilla is acting the way he is in the movie and for the most part, they are the more enjoyable team to follow. This is largely in part Brian Tyree Henry’s fun performance as the off-beat conspiracy theorist Hayes. He is quite a dynamic character that delivers a few laughs and serves as a counterweight to the more stoic characters.

Crowd-Pleasing Action

But the story is not why people watch these movies, it’s the monster fighting, and Godzilla vs Kong delivers that in spades.

At just under two hours longs, it does not take long for Kong and Godzilla to duke it out and their first fight is impressive. The two of them are not pushovers, but the fight scene greatly demonstrates Godzilla’s destructive powers. Each punch and kick hit with force as if you could feel the impact. Their second fight is even more impressive thanks to a change of setting and a few upgrades. The smash and mash of their fights make for some exhilarating action scenes that will make you want more. They are also not just randomly fighting each other. Their fights have an organized chaos to them. The fight scenes tell a story thanks to well-choreographed action.

Excellent CGI and VFX aid their fights as it makes the set pieces feel real and stand out. You can see the individual strands of hair on Kong’s body while you can notice the scales all over Godzilla’s body. Godzilla using his atomic breath in the middle of the night is a sight to behold while Kong’s facial features and movement look believable and convincing. Add to that an exhilarating score from composer Tom Holkenborg (more commonly known as Junkie XL), Godzilla vs Kong offers some of the best battles in the MonsterVerse franchise.

Epic Entertainment

When the filmmakers of Godzilla vs Kong sat down to plan this movie, they knew exactly what the audience wanted and gave it. This is not a think-piece movie that you will think about long after the credits roll. This movie is a textbook example of a big-budget blockbuster and there is nothing wrong with that. The human characters are not that interesting, but the film makes up for that with some excellent fight scenes between the two monsters and the rush that they give. Godzilla vs Kong is the first movie of 2021 that offers fun escapism to be enjoyed with a side of popcorn and soda. Sit back and enjoy the monster-fighting action.
