Kafa Saraj

snack time

Saraj Kafa

Origin: Bosnia
Type: Drink
Description: Instant Coffee

snack time
To tell you the truth, I'm a sucker for caffeine. If it's got caffeine and a unique flavor, you'd better believe that I'll be on it! I found this, Coffee Saraj, at a store down the street. I was interested in getting some after I'd first tried it at a local hookah lounge that served it. As you can see here, it is an instant coffee. Just add hot water!
snack time
The flavor is strong! The initial smell is terrible but it is really earthy tasting when compared to most western coffees. It's not bad, though it might be an acquired taste. It finishes with notes of honey and nuttiness. Definitely try this one out if you want to try something different.

Strawberry Puffs Snack

Strawberry Puffs

Origin: Japan
Type: Chip/Cookie
Description: Strawberry flavored puffy snack

snack time
As you can tell from the first picture up there, this packaging is literally screaming at you to buy it. It's a good thing I like strawberry flavored things! These wonderful strawberry puffy snacks are shaped like and have the same consistency as cheese curls. They taste like strawberry alright! They are sweet and salty, a nice balance that makes them easy to eat without getting tired of them too easily.
snack time
They have a pleasant texture and are the soft kind of crunchy. It's like eating strawberry cereal but softer like popcorn or a cheese puff. These are really good! I would recommend them to anyone who is lucky enough to come across a bag.

2% Peach

foreign drinks

2% Peach

Origin: Korea
Type: Drink
Description: Peach flavored water

At first glance, this can looks like it could be a fruity soda, or perhaps a stylish dietary supplement. It is neither of those things. 2% Peach is peach flavored water in a can. It has no calories, no carbonation, no sweetness. Just peach. It's not bad though. I tried it at both room temperature and chilled. When chilled it's one of the most refreshing drinks that I've had in a while. This drink is good on it's own, but I could see it being used as a drink mixer. Delicious!

Sriracha Peas

Sriracha Peas

Origin: Thailand
Type: Snack
description: Dried pea snack, Sriracha flavor

Sriracha is soooo good. It's one of my favorite spicy sauces to add to just about everything. It's made of chili peppers, garlic, vinegar, and sugar and can be found in many restaurants all over the world. In most American market's Asian aisle you can find dried peas that are usually wasabi flavored, but never sriracha flavored. I picked up these bad boys at the local foreign market.

They are surprisingly sweet! They aren't too salty, and they taste just like sriracha! They're so spicy though, I can only eat a little bit at a time. They're also kind of hard the teeth, but that's to be expected of dried pea snacks. These are pretty good but I probably couldn't eat them all the time.
