Okay, it was always amazing when my mom let us get candy at the Asian Grocery store. But these. If I was able to get all of these together, I knew my mom was in a good mood. That includes chocolate Hello Panda, tamarind candies, shredded squid, and chrysanthemum tea. This might be my ultimate snack-drink combo. My brother and I would munch on these while we played Pokémon on the Gameboy Advance.
The tamarind candies are sweet and sour and are really addicting. I tried so hard to savor these in my mouth and not bite down but that's impossible. The shredded squid has a seafood smell and taste. Even though this seems like a lot, it's really easy to quickly eat the whole thing. And the best thing to wash the squid down with is the tea. This was always an easier sell to my mom since it used to be 50 cents and we would just tell her we were dying of thirst. And, I don't even think I need to explain the Hello Panda, but it's like mini biscuits filled with chocolate. You really can't go wrong with that or with any of this haul for that matter.
