As a variation to the traditional Filipino snack or ?merienda? or ?kakanin? called ?banana que? (referred to as ?sundot saging? in the Province of Batangas, Philippines and other nearby Provinces), ?kamote que? (can this be called ?sundot kamote??) was conceived. It is basically a snack or dessert dish made from slices or as recently being prepared, large sticks, of sweet potato deep fried in oil with sugar until pieces are coated with caramelized sugar.
