Peanut Kisses are the #1 Boholano delicacy.
What Are Peanut Kisses?
They are cookies whose main ingredients are peanuts, sugar and egg whites!
Almost nobody goes to Bohol without eating peanut kisses or taking some back home as pasalubong!
Yes, they were inspired by the American chocolate Hershey’s kisses around the time of the Second World War when a plantation in Bohol was trying to figure out what to do with their peanut crop! It so happens that Bohol has famous mountain formations that are reminiscent of the shape of sweet kisses candy; in fact, these geographical wonders have been dubbed Chocolate Hills!
