Not our usual day for the Asian market, but who’s gonna stop us?  Huh?  No one?  Didn’t think so.

Today,  we were trying to shop on the cheap (because, you know, we’re cheap), and picked a lot of what we got because it was on sale.  It all fit with our, “try something new” thing, and it was all pretty durn tasty.

It went a little like this.







And for “speed review” of all the items shown here:

Today’s adventures at the Sunrise Asian Market:

  • a spiral creme horn
  • mystery drink
  • red pumello
  • hi-soft candy
  • coco rico

The creme horn was everything we hoped for.  Sweet, bread, creamy and delicious.  Until my assistant felt the need to point out the similarities between the creme filling and Crisco*.

The Hi-SOFT candy we were excited about, as it included ingredients like cream cheese and molasses.

Well, it tastes a lot like caramel.  Like the little chewy caramel candies.  Good, but not all we had hoped for.

Coco Rico was a coconut flavored soda.  It was coconuty, and bubbly, but it tasted…white.  Kind of like knowing that the red Popsicles all taste the same: red.  This tasted white.

 

The red pumello was not red. but we got video.

And our final installation, also in video format, was our mystery drink, which was in a can that was written in a language I don’t know.

Thanks for tuning in, and we are going to try and update more often.

*Note from Assistant: I actually said “whipped Crisco and sugar”.
