How is being a shut-in treating you? Some people have waited years for this and now it is their time to shine and maybe gamble on some Belarussian futbol. I believe that everything should be shut down except pharmacies, and grocery stores in my opinion. If you have been in the clubhouse for awhile you know that I am a bit of a marijuana enthusiast and with that comes the munchies. Another passion of mine are foods from around the world and especially stoner snacks. Here is the 2nd installment of Snaxx. If you want the 1st here it is.
Chick Boy – California Crunch (Onion and Garlic FlavoUr) Philippines
We get these little California Crunch nuggets straight from Manila! They’re like a corn nut consistency without the nut. I am not here to lie to you so you have to know that the flavoUr of these is absolutely disgusting, stoned or sober they taste awful. I really had a hope that they would taste like Onion and Garlic chips we get here in Canadia manufactured by Old Dutch.
Filipino food and cuisine is sweeping the market up here. Canada has always had many Filipinos and we are finally starting to get their chain restaurants and grocery stores. Jollibee is the biggest fast food chain in the Philippines and they have come to Alberta. Before the grand opening in Edmonton and Calgary the line up was a few hundred people deep so it was obvious that these people love it A LOT.
Their specialty is their fried chicken and “sweet” spaghetti. I have had their chicken but have not been to their 1 location here. I am always game for trying new things and I will try the sweet spaghetti but I do not hold hope that it is any good.
I did not finish the bag.
Koikeya – Polinky – (Cod Roe FlavoUr) TAIWAN
I had to look up what these are called online as the corncob man with the beret is not trustworthy. For that matter do you trust anyone in a beret? These are from Taiwan and I purchased them at an Chinese supermarket here in town. I was intrigued by the “Cod Roe” to be perfectly honest because I’ve no point of reference as cod roe is not in the Cola family diet. The taste is quite unique. You definitely taste that it is a corn snack that’s initially resembles a bugle. The flavoUr dust is the unique part. A hit of paprika but there is something there that gives it a bit of a fishy finish. Best comparison would be if a prawn cracker met a cornchip.
I did not finish the bag.
Marty’s Cracklin – Spicy Vinegar flavoUr – (Vegetarian Chicharon) Philippines
These are made in Canadia I would guess for the Filipino community as the writing on the back of the bag is in Tagalog . I was under the impression that Chicharon was pig, and pig related by products.
/Checks with Don T and Balls
Upon my search I was correct. This snack is an impostor.
I genuinely like tofu, I will eat tofu by itself. I do not need tofu to masquerade as something it isn’t. Tofurkey? Nope. Tofu hot dogs? Nope. Recently before apocalypse time I had noticed some restaurants advertising “wings” that were actually cauliflower. What is Gamblor’s name are they trying to do??? Deep fried cauliflower don’t try to be something you aren’t, just be a albino broccoli and be proud.
This impostor sons-a-bitches are very spicy. I genuinely liked them when sober, but especially when stoned with the munchies. Marty knows what a good crispy snack needs and that is flavoUr. This has sour, spicy and a great crunch. Good work Marty.
I ate the whole bag.
Peanut & Caramel somethings – Crown – KOREA
My Korean is rudimentary if non existent so I have no idea what these things are called. Normally products such as this are salty. Not this cowboy peanut based snack. Rootin tootin these are not what you expect but they are damn delicious. They taste like if you took a cracker jack box and pressed it like sweet Moroccan Hashish. On the bag it says 11.3%, is it alcohol? Happiness? Sugar? Who knows? Just picture yourself kicking back after a meal of bulgogi beef, kim chi and a nice soju and someone passes these around. You very well might be in heaven’s waiting room.
I ate the whole bag and took a picture so I can buy them again.
BC Dick did his power ranking of snacks recently but what are your go-to’s?
In addition, the esteemed Rikki-Tikki_Deadly has this DFO Radio playlist for you.
Spotify by far is my most used app, Netflix be damned, give me music, sweet music all day long.
