Grew up enjoying these!
The Philippines is known for the beautiful islands it is made of,and the warm culture the Filipinos have. These are things that makes me proud of being a Filipina. Aside from that, the country boasts its delicious cuisine and mouth-watering delicacies.
There are a lot of delicacies to choose from but these 5 are my favorites:
These are round, scallop-edged cookies made from flour, eggs, shortening, sugar and baking powder. These are a pleasure to eat and a favorite by many.
These are flat, unleavened bread filled with muscovado sugar. If you’re not into muscovado sugar then there are also other alternatives like purple yam and mango. These are definitely a must try!
3. Pastillas de Leche
Also known as soft milk candies, these are milk based (usually carabao or cow’s milk) confectioneries you’ll totally enjoy munching on.
These right here are one of my hometown’s pride. These are rectangular bars usually wrapped in paper which are made from a mixture of finely ground peanuts and sugar syrup. These are famous upon peanut lovers. Yet, even if you don’t love peanuts, you’ll learn to love it with these sweet delights!
These are one of those sweet delicacies the Spanish have passed on to the Filipinos. These are a type of heavy, soft and very crumbly Spanish shortbread made of flour, sugar, milk and nuts. These are enjoyable to munch on and are also available in assorted flavors.
I have grown up with these delectable snacks! My parents always see to it that I don’t binge on just junk food but something on the healthier side as well. They usually give me these delicacies to enjoy and also at the same time, I’m learning something about my country and most especially, my hometown!
(Note: I’m not promoting any brands of these snacks nor I’m sponsored with any of these. I bought these with my own money.)
Be pretty, be happy, be you! H~
