This is what’s left of my one big pack. Serapina are traditional sweet treats made up of four tiny balls sweetly glued together. Some jestingly make a reference to goat (kanding) poo. It’s alright. The goats are one of the healthiest eaters from the animal kingdom.
The serapina is part of my childhood food memory although I can’t remember, right now, specific memories of enjoying these sweet crunchy delights.
Most serapina balls can be hard on the teeth. No problem decades ago.
That is why, I was so happy to find these perfectly made serapina. It’s still hard enough for the crunch but not that hard to thoroughly enjoy ball after ball after ball.
These serapina I bought at Brendan’s Pasalubong, famous for their lengua de gato. There are serapina at the public markets too, usually with the kakanin and tinapay vendors.
I hope to meet a serapina maker someday who can show me how these treats are done. When I do, I’ll share the pixes with you.
