The chocolate-filled suman moron is now in convenience stores
Yes, you can get a stick anywhere in the country now
Nov 20, 2019
Growing up in Northern Mindanao, one of my favorite merienda was moron (or muron), a kind of suman filled with chocolate. Unlike the typical suman, moron is made smooth, with the chocolate swirling around it like a rice cake version of a Stick-O.
It’s incredibly hard to find here. In fact, for an old editorial we made on kakanin, I had to ask my mother to fly a box of it over. (Fun fact: She eventually sent a box from the brand Nanay Choleng which was featured on “Inquirer’s Best Desserts 2“.)
Until now, that is.
Good news if you’re a moron apologist like me: the rice cake that originated in Tacloban can now be found at all Ministop branches. It costs P25, which is a lot better than spending money on airfare.
