What is pinipig?

Pinipig are roasted young green glutinous rice that taste similar to freshly-popped popcorn. It is often used in the Philippines as a topping in desserts, rice cakes and drinks. 

What is pili nut?

Pili nut is a smooth and soft nut from a pill tree, known to have the highest vitamin E per gram of all nuts in the world. The Philippines is the only country to produce pili nuts commercially. Due to its high healthy oil content, it has a very buttery and mild nutty taste.
