Snacking while eGulleting... (Part 3)

A few weeks ago, a co-worker of Mr. Kim's made a quick loaf and left it in the freezer for the people still working on his floor.  No one else would touch it, so he brought it home.  When she heard how much I loved it, she sent us the recipe and made us another loaf – Crumb-Topped Cocoa Banana Bread:

Looks lovely, Kim. Just add a couple of tablespoons cocoa to regular banana bread?

I always made sure to keep the big bag of them on the top layer of chest freezer where the microwaveable teen boy snacks were. They kinda stopped shrieking after a while. Arranged them in the bag curled claw up so it was obvious ;)

When I buy chicken paws (that's what they are called on the package) for stock, I always chase Jessica around the house with one.  

 

The two most common terms in Chinese are 鸡爪 (jī zhuǎ), literally chicken's claw, and 凤爪 (fèng zhuǎ), literally phoenix claw.

Currently snacking on Blue Diamond almonds, Spicy Dill Pickle flavor.  O.o

To quote Phoebe from the TV series "Friends": "This is what evil must taste like!" :o

I didn't mean to buy them. They were right next to the Blue Diamond Almonds, Wasabi & Soy flavor, which also come in a green can. Now those I like.

The Spicy Dill Pickle flavor are pretty bad. But I discovered that if I get past the initial dill part, the almonds are actually sweet and the dill flavor goes away. And they have absolutely no spiciness to them, the lying liars.

I've learned my lesson...look at the label on the can in your hand before it goes into your shopping cart. ¬¬

These X-5 bars are a Korean chocolate bar which I buy in a Japanese store in China, I am guessing they might be Asian.

But if you see any, buy them. They are so good I'm surprised the Geneva Conventions or some such international treaty didn't ban them.

However, only buy the ones in the white wrapper. They are peanut flavoured. There is also a version in yellow wrapping which they gratuitously describe as "banana" flavour. Only if bananas taste like rancid, leprous, gangrenous socks which haven't been changed in months. Truly horrible.

That may perhaps be the finest description of "tastes nasty" that I ever read. Well done.

Don't ask. Eat it.

Oh yes fake banana flavoring sends me to the regurgitation bin. What I notice in the US is more a sickly sweet vomit smell like the front lawn after a frat party.

Crackers with "marinated seafood salad" from the supermarket's olive/antipasto bar* or, as I like to think of it, "tentacles on Triscuits."

 

 

*sold prepackaged in the Covid era, rather than in bulk.

I often snack on peanuts.  Tonight I had a dinner of pasta and pumpkin, and put out a bowl of Parmesan.  When it came time for my mai tai I mistakenly thought the Parmesan was salt so I filled the bowl with peanuts.  It was quite a unami bomb but then I had no grated Parmesan for my pasta.
