Samalamig or Palamig which literally means “Coolers” are prepared beverages sold on the streets or roadside. It usually contains sago or tapioca pearls and gulaman or jellies and flavored with syrup from different fruit extracts. This is a great thirst quencher specially during Summer.
Before, there’s only one flavor of Palamig. Just brown sugar syrup, banana essence, tapioca pearls and/or jelly. Now, it’s not limited to that anymore and has evolved into a wide variety of flavors.
