RB Sweet Buko and GGJ Peanut Brittle From Samal, Bataan

During my International Coastal Clean Up with Coca Cola Foundation at Samal, Bataan (see separate entry), I bought some take home treats ("pasalubong" in Filipino) for my family.  There was this guy shouting "pasalubong" with a woven round tray ("bilao" in Filipino) so I decided to buy some.  It was 3 for 100 php.  I thought the price was reasonable and the vendor was working hard carrying all those stuff in the heat of the day anyway.

GGJ's Special Sweet Peanut and Brittle Nuts (33 php)
It's actually my first time to try this sort of peanut brittle and would probably be the last.  Aside from the fact that it was really difficult to bite, it was also too sweet.
GGJ's Special Sweet Peanut and Brittle Nuts (33 php)
For this type of peanut brittle, the peanuts still have their skin intact.  I'm not sure if I should eat it with it or not.  This was less sweetened but still not my type.
RB Special Sweet Buko (33 php)
The RB Special Sweet Buko was like a sweetened dried macapuno.  It felt like eating a very sweet macapuno candy only that it is harder and tougher to chew.

Tsinoy Foodies Verdict
Treat like this are worth the try just out of curiosity but I don't really see the point on why you would want to make yourself and your teeth work hard just to able to enjoy chewing or eating.  How about you?  Do you eat these?
