Have you tried these? They’re actually pumpkin seeds that have been roasted and salted. Quite a treat, if you ask us!

You can find them almost anywhere in the country for either $1-2 a bag. Be sure to try them on your next visit and tell us what you think

Here in Belize we call them pepitos or macobi seeds (Note: Belizeans will randomly ask you if you have macobi (heartbreak) when you eat pepitos. It’s pretty funny) ! What do you call them in your country?

About the Author: Tamara Sniffin

I’m a sucker for a fuzzy face, a feathered face, a face with fins or even one with scales! I am in love with the creatures and the flora that are synonymous with Belize and every opportunity I have to learn more about them and explore their wild habitats I am there! I’m the happiest when I’m snorkeling the reef and swimming with turtles, however my passion is not just limited to critters! Laced throughout this compact jungle gem of a country live the Kriol, Maya, Garifuna, Mestizo and Spanish people, and experiencing each culture, especially their celebrations is one of my favorite pastimes.
