|Balikutsa from Ilocos Sur.|
Balikutsa is my childhood candy. My mother almost always buy balikutsa as a pasarabo (pasalubong) to us kids whenever she goes to the tiendaan. I love melting it on my mouth. Or eat it with left over rice.
|I bought this balikutsa in a roadside royal bibingkahan in Bantay, Ilocos Sur. The label says it's from Santa Maria, Ilocos Sur, anyway. But it's still the same soft and wickedly sweet balikutsa of my childhood.|
|I want to savor once more balikutsa as a child, as it's been years that I didn't got a taste of this Ilokano sweets. So, I have some rice balled, as this is what I'm doing then...|
|... And again I was a kid with my favorite saramsam (snack)!|
|Oh, sweet! Melt it in your tongue and dilute it with your kilabban...!|
