There was a time I would gorge on pili. I think I came from a recent trip to Bicol and this is one place that Pili abounds. But I haven’t been back in a while, and I have no friends bringing me home some fresh Pili (though I really love that fresh from its rock hard nut). But when an officemate offered me a simple pili roll, I offered to buy some.
Basically, its a sponge cake filled creamy milky candy filling with chopped nuts in it. The taste is simple and yummy. Not overly sweet. Just right. The packaging is very basic, not even a branding of its own. Just some home cooked good food. And that is usually where tradition starts.
It would be nice to have my own holiday goodie. But I really do get bored with things I make repeatedly. But at least there are some goodies that people would remember me for longer. 🙂 Like my butterscotch 😛
