Life's Guilty Pleasures Part 2

ahh sometimes it's the simple things in life that makes it worth living. Anyone that knows me know that I like all the color, feel, look and most of all taste of the local treats, so I was well in heaven when Mr Camp bought these back for me from his recent trip to the homeland. I'm sure my N. American readers don't have a clue as to what these are but my CARICOM possee can attest to the simplicity and pleasures of eating dunks....as we call them in Barbados. so , what are they called in the other islands?
