I have been looking for panutsang bao for weeks. I was very glad cause I finally found one. Ooops! I was not the one who found it. My better half found it for me.
The above picture is panutsang bao. The shape is like a flying saucer, two half flying saucer that was put together. The color is golden brown but it was my first time to seeing such color. The common product color is dark brown.
Panutsang bao is sugar, it is a solid sugar. The term bao was coined after the “bao”. Bao is the tagalog term for the coconut shell halve. The mold might really be a coconut shell. I am not sure cause I never know how to make it. I never know its raw materials either.
The product has a deep yummy sweet taste. It can be divided to parts and eaten like candies.
Still searching for further information about this product. Hope you can help me!
