Puffs.

on October 6, 2010 in Product Review | No Comments »

We made a trip to Sunrise today, in search of oyster sauce and fresh garlic.  And treats.

I like to get something we’ve never tried before when we go to Sunrise (or Uwajimaya, or any of the Mexican markets, or any other food place that I don’t got to often). ¬†Today there were two things new:

Banana Puffs. Wow – so weird to eat. Even knowing that they are banana flavored, my mind couldn’t connect the puffs with anything other than salty “cheese”, so it was just…odd. But tasty – I have a sick love for fake-banana flavor. Oh wait! The ingredients actually show Banana Powder! Amazing. I need to get more of these.

These were the candy choice. I had no idea what they were when I got them, I just thought the shape was cute and the ingredients didn’t look too bad. Turns out they taste kind of like a cross between Milkita and Ricola. And they are surprisingly good.

So, the moral of the story is: Don’t be afraid to try something new, even if you can’t figure out what the heck it is. I mean, within reason and all.
