When I was a kid, I knew a lot of junk foods and I think I have tried a lot of it. Well, both of my parents worked and we were left at home, we had a few pesos to spare - off to the sari sari store! :) One of the pasalubongs my parents usually take home was the pop rice. I used to love that food back then!
When I went to the market and saw a man selling these treats, I immediately bought myself a pack. I took a picture of it before eating it, and although the crunchy texture was good, overall I wasn't ecstatic to eating it. I guess the sweet taste was the one thing that made this a great hit for the kids, but because I am not into sweets, I wasn't happy about it that much. Still, I had to eat it all - but it took me three days to eat all 10 balls of pop rice.
