I usually love Skittles. I like the normal ones, the rainforest ones, even the sour ones. But I bought these today and they taste like rancid gym laundry (not that I’d know…). Can anyone translate what kind of Skittles they are and what the flavors are (I’m assuming at least one is “Devil’s asshole”).
Looks like lychee, tangerine, mung bean (eeww!) and taro. Yeah, pretty disgusting. Oh, and the one in the middle appears to be preserved fruit. They were all chosen because their names are homophones of characters in auspicious Chinese New Year sayings. Yay!
Big big bins of candy in Carrefour right now, I assume because of Chinese New Year. It’s amazing to me that none of it is the least bit appealing to me, despite my sweet tooth. It’s a bit like alcohol … there’s probably some good stuff out there, but if the labeling is almost all in Chinese, nope nope nope.
There’s a shop in one of the temples high on one of the trails on Lions Head Mountain just outside Beipu in Hsinchu County, sells a kind of high-viscosity peanut brittle (bends not snaps) that has a bottom layer of gooey black sesame. Teeth testing, oh yeah. But I would lose a few teeth for it, sir, happily.
Hi there, is there any Taiwanese snack that has brown sugar as its main ingredient that is not boba? I’m a sucker for brown sugar and I’d love to know a thing or two about Taiwanese snacks with brown sugar. Thanks in advance!
