I'm so excited to share with you a new food find that is soooo good. . . and proudly made in the Philippines!
A cousin who came from Bicol gave us a box of these wonderful pili-nut filled pastries called Wrapsody.
|Each box contains 12 individually wrapped goodies|
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways . . .haha! Okay, in a nutshell, for me, Wrapsody reminds me of the Mediterranean's Baklava. I actually like it better (and no, I am not biased!) I really enjoyed eating it more . . . or probably I haven't tried a really good Baklava, haha!
It is a pastry made with chopped pili nuts and caramel syrup wrapped in a buttery phyllo dough. It's sweet, nutty and chewy . . . it was love at first bite! (and in the following bites!)
They're soooo addicting that I have to stop myself . . . because my Mom taught me to share! Hahaha!
So if you're going to the Bicol region and are thinking of what to give as pasalubong (it means gift). . .I highly recommend this local treat.
But I do hope we don't have to go to Bicol just to have a taste of this yummy goodness! I wonder if it's available somewhere nearer.
Oh well. . . the joys and pains of being in love. . .
