Mabuyu is a coastal snack enjoyed by the young and old.  Cooked in sugar syrup the baobab seeds are then added colour to give it a zest. Mostly enjoyed while watching movies or hanging out with friends. Mabuyu has even been exported to other countries by coastarian to bring home closer to them.  The colours range from red to even green, can be found sold around Mackinon Market and environs or even at individual homes.

Normally sold in sachets the price range for kshs 5 – kshs 20
