Wrapsody goodness!

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. . .
