Grocery shopping as a child was the most fun because you had to beg your parents to let you indulge in the snacks you just HAD to buy. But as an adult you soon realize, you don’t need anyone’s approval to buy as many snacks as you want. Your pantry never runs out of Ramen and you have no regrets about it.
There’s something about Asian snacks that just appeals to you even more when you’re grocery shopping. If you’ve never tried any Asian, then let us be the first ones to tell you- You’re really missing out! You’ve got all sorts of varieties available to you, whether you want salty or sweet, something that adds texture to your noodles or just tastes divine on its own, you name it.
We compiled a list of all the snacks you need to stock up on to be up to date.
Chinese Rice Krispie Treats
With these delicious shrimpy, crunchy bites, you won’t be able to have one and put it down. Ask anyone who had these as a child, the minute you bite into one, you feel like one all over again. They are seasoned in a signature Asian way and remind you of all things good and chewy.
It’s impossible for anyone to list their favorite Asian snacks and NOT talk about this one in particular. These are absolutely delicious sticks of biscuit that are covered with just the right amount of cream and come in different flavors like chocolate, strawberry, cookies and cream and matcha. The popular flavors have always been chocolate and strawberry though.
These are also a crunchy biscuit variety that are a delight to eat. They come with a sort of dipping sauce and somehow the ratio of biscuits to cream is ALWAYS perfect. You can buy chocolate, strawberry and vanilla. One of the popular things to do as a child was to mix the three sauces and eat each biscuit that way. Those who are daring enough, would do it even after growing up, and that’s okay.
Gummy candies or yummy candies? You decide! This Japanese version of gummy bears style jelly is easily the most satisfying thing to chew on at any given moment. They come in multiple fruity flavors and are very hard to share with others because you just want to eat them all on your own.
