    Woah, I have never seen a fresh chickpea…. that’s cool. Oh MAN that sauerkraut sounds like all kinds of good.

    Hehe love Japanese bakeries, they make me giggle. I lived in Japan during the massive Pokemon craze (well, when it hit, it still kinda is a craze I guess) and I would buy fluro pink strawberry pink pokemon cake-in-a-cup studded with marshmallows and topped with some sort of pokemon-esque creepy face. Delicious.

    the days are long but life is short – good luck with the return to toronto – hard to believe you have finished your american travels but it seems like such a great tirp and no pesky toe holding you back 🙂 the food all looks good (though that banana tart is too creamy and not a patch on one I saw recently with nutella and banana) The funnel cake looks more fun to admire than eat – it must be very messy for street food – but the sausages and raw chickpeas and berry tart look delicious

  3. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    Those pies perfectly match the stereotyped beliefs I hold about American desserts 🙂 I’m not sure if they’d match my taste buds, but I would delight at the sausage-less sausages, those buns, and the fresh garbanzo. Safe trip back to Toronto!

    Ooh look at those bright green chickpeas! I’ve never seen them like that before, only dried or tinned!

    You left me hanging at the best part.. How was the sauerkraut? 🙂

    PS, Welcome back to Canada!! (I very much miss it dearly)

    I can’t believe you’re heading back to Toronto. Not for the winter I hope? I think one terribly cold winter is more than enough for any lifetime. Your three month tour of the USA does seem to have gone by extremely quickly and it’s been full of wonderful experiences, to be sure xx

    Wow you are back so so soon!!!!

    Awesome fresh chickpeas. I wanna try those! Have you ever had sprouted chickpeas? Do they taste similar?
    There are a lot of chinese bakeries in a nearby hood and I used to love their goodies. I think I can imagine those green tea breads.

    Nice mixture of ethnic treats. I’ve never had a Marie Callender Pie. Or any of the other treats you showed, including Funnel Cake. I’m sorry you’re US excursion is over, but now we’ll get to see more of what Toronto has to offer.

    I am always fasciated by the asian market goodies… most of the time I only like half of what I buy, but it’s fascinating nonetheless. Loooove green chickpeas though. I had them in a sea bass dish this weekend with romesco sauce. Perfection.

    Aww how nice to go back to Marie Callender’s? Man I freakin love pie. It might just be my favourite thing. No wait, ice-cream. No wait! HANNAH, don’t make me choose x

    lol i can’t think of two more diametrically opposed foodstuffs than funnel cake and a raw vegan dinner. Now wonder your body said no! It’s probably what we should have done, instead of scoffing down a maple bacon version AND an Oreo and cream deluged funnel cake at Magic Mountain after a day of rollercoaster rides.

    How could you not remember Marie Callender’s pies! Such pies … and that Razzleberry one looks wonderful. I’m with you on the Banana one though. I look forward to more American stories … and Canadian ones.

    Ooh that last shot of that pea thing (not attempting to spell) is so curious.. We need more odd looking veggies in our lives!

  15. Heathy

    So glad that you had an amazing time away… and now happy that you’re back safe and sound in Canada! 😀 We need to catch up!

    I love your snack review posts! I want All Of The Pie.

    (And only a little of the curry-flavoured sauerkraut).

  17. Louise

    Ooh, so much deliciousness. So you ate the green chickpeas both raw and cooked? I’ve never seen them, would love to find them. That amaranth brittle looks fabulous, so do those Japanese bakery buns- I love the air texture they get in those. And I’d totally have to buy a funnel cake if I saw one, no matter how full I was.

  18. Agnes

    Ooooh ahhh I approve of all these foods (except for the beans that tasted like peas – ICK). Now I really want pie. PIE.
