Sta. Rita: Turrones de casuy, sansrival, at iba pa

Kampampangan historian Don Mariano Henson listed Pampanga as one of the most prosperous provinces in the 1930s. The cash crop that made it wealthy? Sugarcane. This abundance of sweetness produced heavenly treats such as the turrones de casuy. The cashew nougat is wrapped in white paper-like wafer, which might remind you of Mass on Sundays.
