Social media has been rife with memes and TikTok posts on the “mythical” Tallano gold, rumored to be in possession of the Marcos family, hence the reason behind their supposed wealth (and not through ill-gotten means when Ferdinand Marcos was president, apparently). The urban legend persists, with claims that the Marcoses will give away these supposed bars when Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. wins the presidency.

While that’s all fake news and hogwash, there are Tallano gold bars — golden soap bars, that is.

A local soap maker posted photos of Tallano Gold soap bars to the amusement of social media users, engraved with “100% pure Tallano.”

“Pag hindi mo ito shi-nare, mamalasin ka ng 6 years lalo na kapag ang ibinoto mo ay si — (If you don’t share this post, you will be cursed for 6 years, especially if you vote for –),” Sabonista cheekily wrote on their post.

The quirky soap dealer is known for their products and posts laced with humor, and sells other cheeky designs on Shopee.

That said, you may have to wait a while before “adding to cart” — Sabonista said that the Tallano soap bars have quickly sold out. Fret not, as they plan to restock soon.
