Turrón from The Philippines
Fried saba banana (similar to plantain) is available nearly everywhere in The Philippines. Turrón is a variation of this and is treated as a snack.
Saba or plantain is a type of banana that can only be eaten when cooked. Personally, I am not a huge fan of it as I find plantain to be quite dry. But, many tourists and Pinoys alike do like Turrón a lot.
Turrón is basically saba banana wrapped in a very thin pastry used for Lumpia and then dipped in brown sugar. Served on a BBQ skewer Turrón sells for as low as 5 pesos and is good snack food.
