MALAYBALAY CITY | BUKIDNON TOURISM – So this Bukidnon blogger previously mentioned that we recently revisited the Monastery of Transfiguration in Malaybalay City, Bukidnon. One of the things that we did there, apart from visiting the cone-shaped chapel and the guest house, was drop by the gift shop and check out the goodies and other souvenir items for sale. I found the world-famous Monk’s Blend Coffee, peanut brittle, rosaries, books, prayer guides, pastillas and many more.
However, one product caught my eye. Sold for only Php 12.00 per pack, this toasted hostia with caramelized sugar tasted super good! Hostia, by the way, is communion bread or Sacramental bread. Since only the circle ones are used during mass, the leftover communion bread is “upcycled” – toasted a little bit to make it crunchy and then mixed with caramelized sugar. Yum! Not bad for a very affordable snack 🙂
