    It’s been over 30 years since I’ve been to the Philipines, but this recipe seems to “pick” at a memory of a flavor of something that I ate there (not knowing what it was, but enjoying it nonetheless.!)

    You can buy this in small sarisari store in the Philippines. Very affordable but taste good and you can make this in different flavors, that’s why children love this.
