Yema is the Spanish word for “egg yolk.” This soft Philippine candy is shaped into a pyramid or a ball, and then wrapped in cellophane. It originated from Spain, where nuns in monasteries used egg yolks donated to them by winemakers (who used only the white part of eggs in their winemaking process) to make sweets and pastries.
