There is no other way to end a vacation from Bohol but to bring home its local pasalubong. My mother being a faithful devotee of the Big Cross in Loon, Bohol, she always get to travel to the province every holy week. It became like a silent agreement on our family that every time she travels to Bohol she should bring home some pasalubong.
On one of her travels she brought back a pasalubong I’ve never known before. I asked her “what’s this called”. She retorted back “It’s peanut kisses”. I immediately laugh because the name seems funny. It sounded like a copy cat of a famous chocolate brand. Then I took a bite on the cookie. Then baam!!! It was so delicious.
True enough that Bohol is never short of natural wonders. What better way to capture Bohol’s beauty than the edible and tasty replicas of its famous Chocolate Hills which you can easily slip into your pasalubong bags.
The Peanut Kisses, a sweet concoction of peanuts and egg white, has been a favorite Boholano delicacy for more than four decades now.
It’s not like any other cookie, peanut kisses is sweet and light to eat but it is creamier than any other cookie because of the peanuts in it. It is best with a hot cup of coffee in the morning or you can just eat it as is while lying in your hammock while enjoying the afternoon breeze.
