Since it’s February and Valentine’s Day is approaching, I thought I would look into possible gift recommendations for everyone. This search has brought me to Filipinos, the brand name for a series of biscuit snacks made by Kraft Foods. Many Asian bloggers have already brought up the issue with Filipinos snacks but I would like to reintroduce it here because this product is still selling in Europe. The standard Filipinos snack is ring shaped and come in several varieties coated in either milk chocolate, dark chocolate, or white chocolate. Milk or dark chocolate versions feature a light colored biscuit. White chocolate versions feature a dark brown biscuit. The biscuits were inspired by ‘rosquillo’ biscuits produced in Iloilo and Negros and the Spaniards added another twist by coating it with brown or white chocolate. Now this is where it gets offensive because the manufacturers are clearly using Filipino racial identity with the biscuits apparent reference to our brown skin tone. Would any of you ever buy a Filipinos or not take offense to this product?
