REMEMBER THIS?


This came to our attention during FVR's time. No idea if it is still being produced. I do recall the great ruckus it raised during that time.

It that the NABISCO brand I see there? The promo edge of this packaging is in Spanish.

I checked Wickipedia and I saw this: Filipinos, in the plural, refers to cookies which are manufactured by Artiach and Nabisco in Spain. Nabisco sold out to United Biscuits Iberia which is owned by United Biscuits UK.

Egad!

I heard about the story a few years ago. Never tasted nor saw one!
Are they still selling it?

I ate a bunch of Filipinos in southern Spain in 1998. I literally did a double take when I saw them on the shelves at the grocer. Tasty, but very weird. We felt vaguely cannibalistic. I just wish I had saved the wrappers.
