 Bohol PHL: Peanut Kisses Pasalubong

If the United States had Hershey's Kisses, Filipino's cleverness from the province of Bohol came up with its own version --- the Peanut Kisses. Boholano's patterned the concept from their famous tourist attraction, the Chocolate Hills. Peanut Kisses are actually peanut and egg white cookies. The miniature chocolate hills' shaped cookies are made up of high-grade peanuts, cane sugar, egg whites and vanilla. These little bumpy cookies are not extremely sweet, the yellowish color was brought about by the peanuts. It is all natural ingredients (no preservatives) The native delicacies have become the signature treats and favorite pasalubong that adults and children alike have learned to appreciate.

Bohol Philippines quoted:
"Carolina Alvarez Butalid conceptualized Peanut Kisses as she experimented peanuts with egg whites. It was 4 decades ago, probably during the World War II, when her family decided to maximize potential income of their two-hectare peanut plantation at Buenavista, Bohol.

Though the experiments were intended for family consumption only, it was on 1960 that the Butalid saw a great market in the near future and mass-produced the product. The company is now known as the BUCAREZ Food Processing Corporation.

By 1996, Alturas Group of Campanies bought majority of the stocks and now the biggest distributor of such delicacy. Though AGC is the major stockholder, the company’s main marketing and operation functions is still under the hands of Linfred Alvarez, the son of Carolina. The company continues to find ways to improve the product from packaging to nutritional value for possible international markets."
