My Mum just came from the Philippines today, so that means she brought back some native snacks! As a result, today I’m going to be tasting these snacks with you all and sharing my reaction.
Boy Bawang Cornick
To be honest with you guys I wasn’t really a big fan of these. They packed a lot of flavour, but i just wasn’t into them. i doubt it was because of the strong garlic flavour because I’m a big fan of garlic. I would say that these ball shaped crackers are the perfect bar food they would hand in hand with beer though.
I was really surprised by these because I honestly expected them to taste sweet, because of the banana chips you get here in the west are sweet. However, they weren’t sweet, they were largely plain with a small hint of salt. Despite, the plain taste I found that i just couldn’t stop eating these, they were actually pretty addictive.
Jack n Jill Chiz Curls
I would dub these as perfect movie food because they didn’t make that loud crunch like most chips do. They were soft and dissolved in your mouth as soon you bite them. The cheese flavour was quite unique it was milder than Cheeto’s but had more kick to it than Twistie’s.
Gene’s Otap de Cebu
This was a hard flaky pastry with sugar coating the top. I personally liked it and thought it was a great little snack, as it wasn’t too sweet. The only negative I had to give was that due to the flaky pastry it is a rather messy food to eat.
Cebu Dried Mangoes
Normal mangoes are amazing, so of course dried mangoes would be just as amazing. I would say that dried mangoes would be a great alternative to lollies, as they have the same sweetness and chewing power (I did not know how to word that).
Jack n Jill Chippy BBQ
The texture of these reminded me of Grain Waves but they were thicker. I wasn’t a big fan of these either, the flavour was almost like the garlic balls. Again I would probably pin this under the bar food category, as I can imagine it would go great washed down with beer.
Lady’s Choice Peanut Butter
Compared to normal peanut butter, I would say that this peanut butter is thicker making it harder to swallow. However, it is smoother too, with more of a peanut taste as it is not masked by an obscene amount of sugar.
