Anecdotes : In the Philippines, the blank is known as leche flan (the term of Spanish origin,literally “milk flan”). Leche Flan is a staple in the Christmas celebration. A heavier version of leche flan, tocino del cielo, is similar but has much more egg yolks and sugar. In Vietnam the creme caramel was introduced by the French. It is known Bánhcaramel, toffee caramen or kem in northern Vietnam or Bánh kem flan or pie in southern Vietnam. Sometimes the bottom of caramel can be replaced by black coffee, giving a new tone and a distinctive flavor. In Japan the creme caramel is ubiquitous in packaged grocery Japan under the name manure custard or pudding. Often, an entire shelf in the grocery store is dedicated to more than a dozen brands.
