Gardenia NeuBake Super Slice Endorser Is Super Cute Baste

As Gardenia introduces the newest Neubake Super Slice, it’s no surprise that Bae-by Baste, a super child star now, and his Mom Sheila have been tapped to be the brand’s endorsers with the latest Neubake Super Slice TVC.

Sebastian Benedict Granfon, or most commonly known as Baste is part of our everyday lunchtime habit. He is a bright, precocious young boy who never fails to liven up our afternoon with his charm, wit and natural flair for comedy.

Ever since Baste’s aunt posted his Dubsmash videos on Youtube, everyone fell in love with this child charmer from General Santos. After his on-line debut, he made his appearance in the longest running noontime show on GMA Network, where he was called “Bae-by Baste.” Now, he acts, sings and makes people laugh, and is touted as one of the country’s brightest child stars.

Like Baste, NeuBake is also super in many ways. First, it comes in a Super Slice – it’s bigger than most white breads in the market, making it perfect for Baste’s big appetite. According to his Mom, Sheila, Baste loves to eat sandwiches. And with NeuBake, she can make bigger sandwiches that can easily make Baste full and satisfied with just one sandwich.

Neubake Super Slice comes in a horizontal, super tipid pack, that is only P29 for 10 slices, perfect for practical moms like Sheila.

NeuBake is now available in leading supermarkets and convenience stores. Like Baste, discover why NeuBake is the super choice when it comes to bread. If Baste loves it, so will you!
