During a food trip in Angeles City, we decided to sample some of Susie's kakanin.
You know how much all of these samplers cost? A total of Php82! :)
This is what we call Tibok-Tibok in Kapampangan. It's our local custard. I like Tibok-Tibok best when it has a hint of dayap/dalayap (local lemon). Tibok-tibok is sprinkled with latik (glazed coconut flesh).
Duman is a type of sticky rice that is endemic to Sta. Rita, Pampanga, which can only be harvested around November when the air is cool. This isn't exactly pure duman because duman is expensive. It's about Php2,000 to Php2,500 per kilo. Plus, it's only harvested once a year.
Moche Moche is one of Susie's bestsellers. Yummy. They are filled with latik inside.

Susie's also distributes a whole slew of pasalubong items from butong pakwan, aligue, roasted peanuts, candies, etc.
If you want to buy sweets, you may want to check out Rosing's next door (just adjacent to Susie's). They sell pastillas and sweets made from carabao's milk. What's great is they'll let you taste their candies before buying. Their 2 bestsellers are -

|Yum! But they do have other flavors of pastillas, and also tarts, polvoron and other sweets.|
