The ORANGE spot on this rainbow menu assortment comes with a bang of sweet, tangy flavors, and sits on a spoon that can be eaten! [Order these from FoodieSpoon.com and keep in stock for parties all summer long.] We’ve added Bijol, a coloring and condiment from Latin America, to the pork to give it a bright orange color without adding any extra flavor.
