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.
