Vlog Ep. 237: Merienda and Snacks

Tonight's Tasty Tuesday episode of #BaduyPride is all about merienda - the special snack time that is a tradition for most Filipino households. We all have different ideas of what these afternoon snacks "should" be and that's what defined tonight's discussion. Thus we talked about how our merienda experiences changed from our early childhood at home to option defined by school cafeterias and then later what is available around your workplace.

One of the more interesting discussion points that came up as we talked about different snacks was the near-universal perception that certain snack vendors only come at certain times. Tobie and I were both of the belief that taho is a morning thing because taho vendors only come in the day while ice cream is a possible merienda snack because the carts would only come in the afternoons. Funny how that works out. 

This was a community-contributed topic originally shared by Andrei! If you have ideas for future video discussions, feel free to fill out this Google Form and your idea may be featured in a future video.
