    Another review of American snacks is just what I needed on a Friday afternoon!
    The ice-cream and frozen yoghurt look most appealing, since the temperate here has been in the low 40s regularly. I do love heat so I’m not complaining.
    I AM complaining about those brands not being available in Australia though (or at least not at a reasonable price).

    Back in the USA in mid 2013! Yay! 🙂 You really are such a brave girl.

    Hehe do you ever wonder how some products make it onto a supermarket shelf? Do you think some people have really odd taste buds and they sit in meetings saying “well this is for the we-love–crap market”? 😛

    “Sweet Scoops Limited Edition Pumpkin Frozen Yoghurt ” – WORST OF THE LOT in my opinion….! I thank you for being brave enough to try it.

    PUMPKIN is the footrot of the vegetable world…! I’ll take all of your oranges and give you my pumpkins. Oh and sweet potatoes, because they’re just funkier but still-evil pumpkins in disguise.

    I totally agree with @ Not Quite Nigella – how do these products (the reallyreallyterrible ones) even get approval to make it onto supermarket shelves?! Mind boogling. The coconut ice cream, however is something I would like right now.

    That is what my life has been missing.

    I also think I could eat that mint soy delicious in more than 1/4 cup serves 😉 I haven’t seen the flavour here.

    Also, America again in the middle of the year? Such excitement! Where and how long? Will you still be there in late September? I may need to email you if so!

    I also had a terrible experience with some chips lately – Tyrell’s tortilla chips, sour cream flavor were so surprisingly awful that I even wrote the company about how stale and horrible they tasted. I have not heard back. I always love the wackadoo snacks you find in your travels. Keep ’em coming!

    pumpkin yoghurt – sounds delicious! Unlike a few of these snacks. Hummus chips sounds odd – what is different between hummus chips and chickpea flour chips – is it the whole tahini, garlic, lemon flavours too? And I love how the choc chip ice cream is marbled just like your bench – you meant that – right?

    Yuba duck!! Yes! I’m so glad you tried it, and moreover actually enjoyed it. Mmm, I’m craving it now just looking at your photo. Wish the rest of the snacks were as successful- Those pomegranate chips sound truly dreadful.

    I love So Delicious coconut milk ice creams. Including the mint chip. 😀

    You are a braver woman than I for I am yet to build up the courage to eat tinned cat food and dry dog food. Those pomegranate chips sound so vile but the fact that they are on the market must mean there’s a market for them and that is what is so astounding xx

  11. Libby

    Oh my, these sound awful! (except for the Nori Nosh – I’d be wanting some of that!)

    I was hoping that you’d elaborate on the canned cat food and kibble too, haha.

  12. Choc Chip Uru

    Wow you are too brave (and a little crazy!) to try kibble 😛
    Admire the foodie in you!

    I’ve always wondered about dog and cat food too. Now I’m sure my dog wouldn’t eat those pomegranate chips! What a huge variety. I’m thinking that these things don’t exist in Italy – the snack market is micro, except for perhaps the whole food end, and that is mostly imported. But the baddies, surely that explains away some of the obesity?

    Ahh, tofu egg salad done wrong is so sad. And plain chickpeas out of a can are one of the best snacks! They’re so flavorful all on their own. The “duck” looks so weird – but I love yuba, bet it would be great. And lol, I just bought mint chip coconut milk ice cream yesterday. 🙂

    hmmmm you do eat very odd things, but I shan’t judge you as my love for you is soooooooo big that I can’t judge 😛 (or maybe I am!)

    When I was looking at the photo, before I scrolled down and read more, I though “cheese and pomegranate… chips?!” I’m so glad to hear they are as horrible as I would have thought. And nori-date-sesame snaps? They somehow sound so wonderful.

    Ahh! New blog layout?!! So fresh & so clean!! Hannah, my dear, one of the things I truly long for is So Delicious’ goodies. Soon, soon! & sweet scoops look fab too.
