Paçoca is a humble dessert served in a cylindrical shape. A lot of people have a hard time explaining the flavor as well as the texture and aftertaste, but the closest we can get to explaining it is by how the peanut filling of Reese’s Peanut butter cups taste like. But that is still way off from what a real genuine Paçoca taste like. Go ahead and try it and tell us what you think.
