Titbits from Boracay

What do travellers or tourists buy when they visit Boracay? Of course there are fridge magnets that are found in almost every tourist destination on planet Earth.

Here's a board of fridge magnets from Boracay to feast your eyes on:

I also saw many shops and stalls selling dream catchers but I did not snap any pics.

Now that I've embarked on a minimalist lifestyle, I don't usually buy souvenirs whenever I travel. I prefer to buy stuff that can be used or consumed like dried food, titbits, facial & body care products, cosmetics, etc.

So when I went to Boracay I naturally found two popular titbits, i.e. dried mangoes and banana chips.

1) Dried Mangoes

Dried mangoes are sold almost everywhere in Boracay.

As you can see from this pic, there are green and yellow dried mangoes:

 Jovy's seems to be the a popular brand for dried mangoes.

2) Banana Chips

Banana chips is my favourite titbit from Boracay.

The chips are crispy with just the right amount of sweetness (there goes my no refined sugar diet). I didn't check the ingredients (because I ate it all too quickly) but I think there's something coconut thrown into the ingredients which makes the chips so tasty.

I bought 5 packets (400gm/packet) of these at PHP86.00/packet from one of the shops along the main road in Boracay:

You only see 3 packets in the photo because I had given away 2 packets to family and friend to share the calories.

The chips are so addictive that I can finish a whole packet (400gm) of banana chip goodness in one sitting.

If anyone is going to Boracay, please buy these delicious chips for me and I will be eternally grateful.

I love, love dried mangoes in Philippines - they are the best! Have tried their banana chips too but I prefer the ones in Thailand better :-)

I certainly need to try the banana chips from Thailand next time I go there 😊
