weird foods
I should have known that I was in for trouble when I ran across this beauty in the bargain bin. For a little over $1, you too can partake in this vile treat from Taiwan. This box contains 4 packages of strawberry jelly. They don't need to be refrigerated, which should have been my first clue that this was a terrible idea.

Tear into the wax coated paper packaging and try not to spill the liquid that the pouch contains. Beyond the packaging and the sticky stuff, you'll find a brick of jelly. It smells like strawberry and plastic. This isn't the good kind of jelly, no this is the cheap nasty stuff. It's so full of preservatives that when you bite into it, it falls apart in your mouth. It's a stiff kind of jelly. There seems to be some "fruit" pieces in the middle. They're hard and tasteless. The flavor of the jelly itself tastes like it smells; strawberry and plastic. What's most offsetting is that it's also salty. It's a salty sweet strawberry mess. This is disgusting and I wouldn't recommend it.
