Now with 100% more snackiness

There are two kinds of food.  The kind you eat due to necessity and the kind you plan for, wait for and savor.  The former is at times hurried, basic and mundane.  The later is usually divinely prepared, aesthetically pleasing and delicious.  In today’s case it is the mixture of the two. 

Today I have discovered the bad-assery of snackiness.  They are nothing short of snacktastic, snackalicious, the super snack, snack-o-rama, snacktopia….and now I am annoying myself.


This amazing bad-o-wonder from Starbucks has the very slightest hint of sweetness; something akin to Kettle Corn but with a bold pepper and salt flavor.  It is THE perfect sweat/savory combo.

We bought these at an Asian market down stairs from out usual dim sum hang out in San Gabriel, CA.  All other dried fruit snacks are crap compared to these mangos.  They are slightly sweet strips of mango and you can taste the mango.  There is a slight sweet dusting on them but nothing at all like the sugar coated dried fruits or blah shriveled dried fruit I have tried everywhere else.  You can see the meat of the mango just as if you cut it fresh.  Take a careful look at the bag because any other brand will not be the same. 
 Now, I must go, my bags are empty.
