Aida’s Black Kutsinta
Kutsinta has been a long beloved merienda among Filipinos, but Aida’s does their kutsintas a little differently. Instead of the brown kutsinta most people are used to, theirs is a beautiful, shiny black. These little kakanins are best enjoyed with a generous dollop of their yema spread and a sprinkling of toasted niyog. It’s a perfect afternoon panghimagas to keep you going for the rest of your workday.
