Oh yeah! I forgot about dried squid. To those that haven't tried it, it sounds horrid. But it is basically like a jerky... seasoned, chewy, delicious and salty/sweet. Love it! Think I will get some tomorrow as I'm heading to the big Asian Market anyway... Thanks for the reminder of this snack! Totally forgot about it...

I love rice cakes. Put creamy peanut butter on them, zap it for a minute or so and let it melt down into the cake. Like eating hot roasted peanuts.

I absolutely hate most seafood, but realised I'd accidentally been enjoying some strange, crispy shrimp balls. They were weirdly sweet and very addictive.

I'm a massive fan of garlic peas, if you haven't tried them and you're a garlic fan, you will absolutely love them. Not exactly a social snack though...

Welcome to DC! Are garlic peas like wasabi peas, dried and crunchy? I love wasabi peas.

Will have to check out dried squid and shrimp balls.

They're very similar to wasabi peas in texture, apparently they're a common bar snack in Asia.

I think the balls were made by Orion and had a peanut in the centre, they're definitely up there with some of the strangest things I've ever eaten

That is an interesting way to have rice cakes Ads

I like rice cakes but started finding them bland, but your way is not bland at all

If you think of the plain white rice cakes, you can treat them as if it were white bread and put anything you would put in a sandwich. I love it with the PB. I often just eat the PB right out of the jar. But when heated in the micro on a rice cake, it melts down into the rice cake and tastes like hot roasted peanuts. A favorite food of mine. The cakes have minimum calories and the PB is a great protein food. I buy natural PB. You have to always stir the oil back into it before you use it. The only additive is the salt. No sugar in it.

I have also put tuna salad on it and zapped it. Rice cakes with added foods on top are a quick snack or a food for on the go.
