Convenient Breakfast:

Quick and easy breakfast that differs to other products currently on the instant-breakfast market. Panda Pockets are Asian-style filling within a tamale. Only 2 minutes in the microwave you can have a convenient Asian-Mesoamerican Fusion breakfast, lunch, dinner, or snack.


Traditionally, tamales are a Mesoamerican dish made of corn masa that can be steamed/boiled in a leaf wrapper like corn husks or banana leaves. Before eating, the wrapper is discarded. Tamales are a versatile dish since they can be filled with a variety of fillings like meats, vegetables, cheese, and chillies.  Some use fruits like raisins to make a sweeter dish. Thus, the opportunity for creating new flavored fillings is entirely possible.
