    I don't know what I'm looking at, but I want some.

    OMG, where did you find these? I didn't know we could get them in Kentucky! Are they fresh or from a tin?

    These we got in Cincinnati at Trader Joes. So no they are not fresh but in a plastic bin. We can buy the big palms made daily in Lexington at Aguas Calientes Bakery. I don't know if there is any place in the Louisville area but now you have a reason to come to Lexington

    Trader Joes calls them Petite Palmiers. They are a pastry often found in Mexican bakeries. There they would be called palms I believe for the big ones. The little ones would be palmitos?

    Two different cities I lucked out and found bakeries that would sell these fresh – Seattle and SF. OMG, so good. Both were French bakeries, not Mexican, but they called them palmiers too. In the Philippines we only have the smaller versions (that I know of) and they're never tender inside like the fresh ones are – still good, but more crunchy and crumbly. I love the sugary crust…I'm going to have to pay more attention next time I'm at a Mexican grocery.

    I didn't know these were such a rare item. I've seen them all my life so I guess I took them for granted. But then I've always lived in civilized parts.

    in Spanish they are called "palmas", the smaller ones "palmitas.. and yes, they are girls, thus the -a ending.the ones pictured here are more solid and cookie-like than bakery fresh ones which are lighter and flakier and much messy to eat with crumbs everywhere, totally worth it.
