A:

Dear Paulo,

Chocoramos are relevant and popular in Colombia because they taste delicious and are often eaten as an accompaniment to coffee for breakfast, or as a snack with a Pony Malta drink. Its chocolaty exterior and cakey guts have made it popular for over fifty year. I found a Prezi presentation on the history of the Chocoramo—La Historia del Chocoramo, if you're interested.

If you'd like to try a Chocoramo for yourself (again, maybe? It sounds like you've had it), you can buy it on Amazon, online at Zocalo Foods (an "online Latin food market") or, perhaps most easily, at your local Latino or South American market.

Suerte,
