Vietnam

Banh com is the name of a Vietnamese sweet snack or dessert, which is green in colour and sold wrapped in a transparent plastic film (fig.).

 

As a gift, it is also available in small, square, carton boxes, which are typically piled into pyramide-like towers when given as traditional Vietnamese pre-matrimonial wedding gifts, called cuoi hoi tron goi (fig.).
