Yummy Bazaar has a new featured country again this month; Colombia! The snacks don’t all hail from there but include others from France, Spain, and The Netherlands. Your info sheet will tell you all about the snacks this month from around the globe.
Torres Black Truffle Potato Chips (Spain) – Value $4.95
I love a lot of things, and two of them happen to be potato chips and truffle oil. The fancy burger joints around town all offer fries with truffle oil and I can never resist. These chips hail from Spain and not only have pretty packaging, but they taste HELLA good. They are a little greasy, but the flavor isn’t too overpowering, and they are a delicate chip that won’t tear up your mouth. If I’m ever in Spain, these will be my go-to snack!
El Rey Guascas Spice (Colombia) – Value $4.45
I checked in with my friends from Colombia to see if this pack of dried herbs was legit. As soon as I texted the brothers, my friend Klaus laughed and said “Oh yes. That was the key ingredient that no one could find in the United States even just a few years ago.” His brother Dan chimed in to say that it’s the most important ingredient in ajiaco (after I asked if it was in sancocho which is beloved by me and the only Colombian dish I am really familiar with). He also said that most kids dislike it, but you grow to love it as an adult. The info sheet suggests mixing it with lemon juice and marinating chicken with it. That sounds pretty tasty to me!
Pitch Strawberry Brioche (France) – Buy a pack of 6 for $3.95
Hmmm- I got one of these brioches last month as well but in chocolate chip flavor. That one reminded me of a chocolate chip bagel, but this one just looks like a hot dog bun with strawberry filling. It’s really soft and the strawberry filling is a tasty sweet jam. Not as good as the other flavor, but it will do. It actually is almost like a PB&J minus the PB.
Penotti Duo 2 Go in Almond & Caramel (The Netherlands) – Value $1.99? (linked to similar)
This reminds me of one of my favorite snacks, Yan Yan but instead of Japan, these hail from The Netherlands. One part of the container has cookie sticks in it, while the other part is filled with alternating almond and caramel spread. It’s close to a frosting or Nutella. I think I prefer the almond flavor to the caramel, but you kind of have to go all in with both.
La Nina Platanitos Plantain Chips (Colombia) – Value $1.85
I thought these would be really salty, but they’re not. These are a lot thinner than a dried banana chip and are more like a chewier potato chip that’s a little sweet. They also aren’t too greasy when grabbing them out of the bag. These would be a great snack for a road trip!
Verdict: This month’s Yummy Bazaar World Sampler Kit gave me five items from four different countries that were all pretty tasty. At $9.95 with free shipping for this box, that makes each item come to $1.99 a piece. While a couple are under that cost, a couple are also much greater, so I still feel like I got my money’s worth this time. I adore the truffle chips and am pretty pumped to try my new Colombian herb mix as a marinade.
To Wrap Up:
Can you still get this box if you sign up today? Doesn’t look like it. As of publication, it looks like you will be shipped the October box between the 15-18th of next month.
Value Breakdown: At $9.95 for this box, you are paying approximately $1.99 per item.
