CDO Holiday Ham earns the top spot as the best quality ham below P500.

This star of Noche Buena is a boneless ham precisely molded into a perfect ham shape. It may take a bit longer to fry compared to other premium hams as it has a generous amount of fatty layer. CDO Holiday Ham is a famous gift to loved ones and officemates, made with quality pork meat glazed with lip-smacking pineapple jelly.

CDO Holiday Ham is a traditional deli for a lot of Filipino families every Christmas. The whole-cut ham takes pride in its meat consistency and affordable price. The smoky hint is not strong enough to overpower its sweet and salty taste. Over the years, this prime-cut ham has been one of the top contenders alongside the Purefoods Fiesta Ham, which is pricier.

Surely, the texture shows no sign of extenders as it is naturally meaty. There is not even a hint of artificial chemicals other brands use to preserve their products. Also, unlike other hams made of various meat pieces combined together to look like whole meat, the CDO Holiday Ham evidently has net marks, which proves that it is whole meat from a hind leg smoked in ham nets. You can buy it as a whole or pre-sliced, as malls have CDO Carving Stations. You can even to slice or carve your ham in the thickness you prefer.
