Quirky Snack from Batangas – Pakaskas

At first glance of how it was packed I did not know that it was a famous snack in Batangas. I had to muster all courage just to ask the person who was bringing it to know what was inside. He explained that it’s locally called Pakaskas, a sweet snack made from Buri palm sugar molds that was made in Isla Verde, Batangas.

Pakaskas Packaging

Pakaskas is sold at 20 Pesos per tube but if you buy at mainland Batangas the price would increase due to transportation costs.

One thing I like about the packaging of the Pakaskas is that it is all natural and biodegradable. The raw materials for the packaging actually came from the Buri palms, the same tree where they get the Buri palm sugar to make the Pakaskas.

Though the Pakaskas are not one of my favorite snacks that I’ve tried, I encourage you to try it maybe our opinion on this food would differ.
