Yummy Bazaar has a new featured country this month, which is Greece. The snacks don’t all hail from there but include others from France, Turkey, and the old U S of A. Your info sheet will tell you all about the snacks this month from around the globe.
Basak Instant Tomato Soup (Turkey), 7 oz. – Value $1.95
Tomato soup from a packet, you say? I’ll bite (er, slurp). When I added hot water, the soup (which comes with croutons, by the way) wasn’t looking souper appealing but has a salty goodness about it. The croutons float to the top like marshmallows in hot cocoa, and since I’m eating it from a mug my brain keeps getting confused. This doesn’t taste like tomato soup from the can because it’s a lot thinner, but I really kind of like it. This would be best suited for a camping trip.
Original Nuts by Bobby Sue’s Nuts, 1 oz. – Value $1.95
Here we have a little packet of roasted nuts from USA company, Bobby Sue’s Nuts. This mix includes almonds, cashews, and pecans that have been candied for a sweet treat that is packed with protein as well. I wish this itty bag was larger because I need to shove more than one ounce of these nummers into my face. They remind me of the street nuts you can get in NYC, but not as warm, and these happen to be gluten free and non-GMO.
Pitch Chocolate Chip Brioche (France) – Value $0.66 (Buy 6 for $3.95)
I was pretty stoked to eat this fella because it looks like a chocolate chip bagel in stick form. It’s really soft and stayed moist in its package. It does actually taste like a much lighter and more buttery chocolate bagel. I could see tossing these in my bag for when I get hangry late in the day. Happy happy joy joy!
Roumelis Soft Nougat Bar with Peanuts (Greece), 2,4 oz. – Value $3.95
I was a bit afraid of this one. It’s so white and nougat-y, but it’s actually pretty tasty! Since it has peanuts throughout, it reminds me of a peanut chew without the chocolate. The nougat and peanuts are nestled in between two light crispy wafers that lend a little crunch while consuming this ultra-sweet treat. It is suggested to enjoy with some Greek tea, which sounds really nice on this chilly end of summer evening.
4505 Chicharrones Fried Pork Rinds (USA), 1 oz. – Value $2.55
I have a confession; I’ve never been completely clear on what pork rinds are, so I’m glad that my life has lead us to this moment so I can finally know. For some reason, I always thought that the snack known as pork rinds were an imitation of an actual meat product. I was so wrong. Pork rinds are indeed pig skin, and are just fried in pork fat to achieve the puff status that we all know. These particular pork rinds are Paleo Certified, which I also did not know was a thing. So many discoveries for me today! As my curious boyfriend and I munched on these, they seemed to not have much to offer in the flavor category immediately. Kind of a styrofoam texture as well. But after it’s gone, you’ll notice the spicy flavor creep in while your hand goes back into the bag to retrieve another. How curious! Bonus: the pork used in these snacks were humanely raised with no added hormones.
Verdict: This month’s Yummy Bazaar World Sampler Kit had a retail value of just over $11, so it just went over the cost of $9.95. I think this was due to the fact that there were only five items instead of the normal 6-8. That being said, I had never had any of the snacks that were delivered to me, nor would I have ever found them on my own. I really loved the Pitch chocolate chip brioche and wished I had more. I even learned about pork rinds! It was fun to take a little journey with three of the snacks to Turkey, Greece, and France, so I’m interested to see what comes next!
