Supermarket Surprise

I had just arrived in Tagbilaran, Bohol.  After an interesting flight which barely arrived on time, I was still a bit too early to check in my hotel room, but not too early for my tummy.  After settling some procedures with the hotel I asked around for some good food (outside the hotel of course).  Unfortunately no one can point me into any particular place around but the nearby mall.  Mall!

I’ll be putting the details in future posts, but for now let me share with you what surprises I found at the supermarket after having my lunch:

Carabao's Chicharon

Peanut Fascination

I honestly don’t understand the deep fascination of Bohol with peanuts.  See what I mean:

Peanut nuggets

Peanut fingers (barquillos covered with peanuts) and peanut meringue

Even other specialties were not spared:

It’s not even a day yet and I’m seeing interesting things.  Amongst the surprises I saw, this one’s a real find:

Chocolate hills!

Honestly I can sense an overwhelming chance of having an over baggage because of all the things I saw.  And that’s just in Tagbilaran!
