Turontastic’s “”turon” with a twist on the Filipino banana snack is a bestseller as it debuted in California.

The Filipino “turon” hit the Off grid market of California with its new flavors Choc-nut Butterfinger turon, Halo-halo turon, and Ube mochi turon.

Turon is made from sliced bananas, wrapped in spring roll wrapper and sprinkled with brown sugar and frIed afterwards.

Julius Calvin Santos, owner of Turontastic, leveled up the turon and gave it a new taste and look.

Chef Santos added the popular ingredients which brought the turon to the next level.

In his interview with ABS-CBN the chef said his inspiration in making the flavors of his turon are from his childhood memories.

““Ube- Mochi, for instance is a product of my love for Ube and Tikoy. Then there’s Halo-halo, Choc-nut, Buco Pandan, Mango and 10 other flavors,” he said.

The snack is now available for Filipinos in America who miss the snack and for Californians who want to sample the fare.

Like the Binalot express that has expanded in UAE due to its popularity, Turontastic is also being recognized around San Francisco, California.
