For the Chinese New Year holidays in the Philippines, tikoy is the most popular treat given and eaten. It is made from sticky rice that is ground into flour and then mixed with lard, water and sugar. White sugar give us white tikoy, brown sugar… brown tikoy. And there are now also ube and pandan flavors as well.
Filipino corn nuts… Compared to the American variety, cornick pieces are typically smaller and crispier. Garlic is the most common flavor. And the most popular brand of cornicks in the Philippines is arguably Boy Bawang (“Garlic Boy”). However, before there was the marketing-wise Boy Bawang, there was the humble Safari brand!
