Pasalubong is the Filipino tradition of a homecoming gift - typically food - in which you share distant lands and cultures with loved ones.
In 2002, Sun Tropics began as a family-owned company dedicated to bringing the best of the Philippines, like the childhood favorites of tropical fruit and street food, to a global market. Think of it as large-scale pasalubong.
The History of Sun Tropics
The founders of Sun Tropics set out to spread what they love about the flavors and cuisine of their home in the Philippines to others. Easily shareable snacks, their products can now be found in traditional supermarkets, specialty markets, and club stores.

Plus, with a simple list of ingredients - coconut milk, coconut pulp, rice, cane sugar, cinnamon, natural stabilizers, and sea salt - you know what you’re enjoying. These super-simple ingredients make rice pudding a great choice to satisfy a sweet-tooth craving.
