Peanut Kisses: A Taste of Bohol in Every Bite

Bohol's Peanut Kisses are a famous delicacy from the island of Bohol in the Philippines.

They are small, cookie-like treats made primarily from peanuts and egg whites, with a sweet taste and a texture that is crunchy on the outside and chewy inside. Shaped like tiny pyramids or Hershey's Kisses, these treats are a favorite among tourists and locals alike and are often bought as souvenirs by visitors to the region.

The unique shape is said to be inspired by the Chocolate Hills of Bohol, which are one of the country's most famous natural attractions. These hills turn brown during the dry season, resembling rows of Hershey's Kisses and thus giving the confectionery its name and shape.

The ingredients of Peanut Kisses typically include ground peanuts, sugar, egg whites, and vanilla for flavoring. They are baked until they have a delicate crust, making them irresistibly delicious. Because of their popularity, they're widely available in most souvenir shops across the Philippines, often packaged in boxes with images of the Chocolate Hills or other symbols of Bohol.

To try Peanut Kisses is to enjoy a taste of Bohol's culinary tradition, with the added benefit of having a snack that is both energizing and delightful. It's a simple treat that has become synonymous with Boholano hospitality and the island's rich culture.
