Yema is a very gooey and soft custard candy that was created by Filipino’s during the time of Spanish colonization. It comes from the word yolk in Spanish. Originating from the province of many sweets, Bulacan. It comes in different forms and shapes then covered in sugar. It is usually wrapped in colorful cellophane or skewered in toothpicks.
