Butterscotch bars are a famous food souvenir when travelling to the islands of Negros and Panay. Aside from the combined flavors of the caramel and butter, the natural sweetness coming from the California Raisins makes this bar the perfect treat. Each slice is packed with energy,rich in fiber and a great source of vitamins and minerals.
