Good evening! It’s been awhile since I have pulled the night shift here so bear with me.
The 2nd night of the Westminster dog show is tonight but I figured that out far too late to write too much about it. I am a pug man, my best friend Oxipug left me a while back and I still think about him all the time. I have his ashes in an urn in the living room because, irrationally I don’t want him to go far. We plan on getting another dog when we get a house because with a toddler having to go down stairs to let the dog outside is a pain in the ass, especially in the winter months. When the time comes we will rescue a dog and you’re god damned right if there is a pug that needs saving that I will do it.
I have chosen snacks for the topic this evening. I like to shop at international markets and I gravitate for their junk food aisle. It has always been a passion of mine when backpacking (I read this as barebacking and that is way different). Why go for Pringles when you could try something new, and a lot of the time surprising? For Christmas my wife bought me a subscription to global snacks once a month which really excited me. If you have a subpar day at work, come home to a screaming kid you need a small slice of escapism. I smoke a bowl and have a snack. Here are a few that I have tried so far.
Sesame Cracker Sticks – Korea
I bought these at an Asian supermarket an they were not what I was expecting. I guess I thought that figured it would be a savoUry snack and it was not. The twists tasted like if a honey glazed donut was dried and twisted. I absolutely loved them and have bought them again since the initial purchase. They do kind of cut the roof of your mouth like Cap’n Crunch does but like the Cap’n very worth it.
Sibell – Braised Chicken Chips – France
Oh hell yes. These came in the first snack box and I knew they were going to kick ass. In the UK chicken chips are a thing so although I had never seen this brand there before I know they were going to be awesome. They were phenomenal. Quite thin in comparison to “crisps” in the UK where they like em thiccc. I honestly wish I could find these somewhere in my city. They do have an option to order more from the snack box company but the prices are absurd.
Snackgold- Raspberry Frambuesa Chips – Italy
This also came in the 1st snack box. It was the December box which was from all over but normally you get snacks from one country. Like last month it was Poland and this month it will be France. I really didn’t know what to think of these. Did Italians actually like these? I have never seen a fruit flavoUred potato chip before. The verdict is that they taste weird. You definitely get the raspberry flavoUr but it’s salty and the tastes just do not make sense. I wouldn’t buy them again because there are far better options.
/That’s a lie, if I ever see them again I will give them another try because they just tasted so strange.
Krowka – Poland
The boxes come with candy I guess. This is vanilla fudge from Poland. It was fantastic. I have a good buddy from Poland and he goes home every summer. He’s doing so this year and I have requested these.
Things you can watch tonight.
If I am wrong which is probable look it up yourself.
Westminster Dog Show- It is on Sportsnet up here, and FS1 Down there
There is basketball, both the Professional (6 games) and the.paid under the table variety.
There is a lot of hockey (11 games) on tonight on various channels.
I am curious, what are your favoUrite snacks? Regional?, Run of the mill? Let’s start that debate on a slow Tuesday night.
I did a post with no Futbol talk. Huzzah!
