spicy sampaloc


bought a bag of these spicy sampalok recently in laguna, shared it with people in the office, and have been eating them non-stop but they seem to be multiplying by the day 🙂 i don’t mind… the mix of salt, sugar and chili on the sour fruit always works. good for the digestive system, too, ha.ha.

remember when these were sold wrapped in clear or yellow cellophane, with each piece costing only 25 cents (at least during our time)? when i didn’t have enough money it was a choice between dikyam (mansanitas), champoy, and this. when we didn’t have any money at all, we went to the trees and picked these.

    yup! i remember my school skirt getting full of sugar at the end of the day because it escapes that cellophane wrapping, LOL! these days, i see little bottles of these being sold at the fil-am. there's also another sampaloc candy that is smoother but almost tastes the same, but it looks like pellets and isn't rolled in sugar.

    yup. the kids at home love thos “new” sampaloc candies with the hassle of spitting the seeds out. but somehow, it lessens the joy of eating ne, like eating butong pakwan without the shell.
