Before the packaged snacks Age, our grandparents, who loved us so much, were used to prepare the afternoon snack (we call it MERENDA) at 4.00pm using some of the most genuine food in the world, and how happy we grandchildrens were to receive those delicacies…Thank you beloved grandparents for teaching us the values of simples things and the importance of healty eating!!!
