Shopping at an Asian supermarket can be somewhat confusing and overwhelming when you don’t know what exactly you want. Buying for Asian snacks does not only require that you understand what you are looking for but also what’s out there. The next time you are bored and craving some savory Asian snacks, recheck this post for ideas.
Top Asian snacks you need to try
1: Poteko (Potato Rings)
This is a potato snack shaped in the form of rings. They are just addictive to eat, thanks to the crunchiness and slight saltiness of the rings. If you are also looking for something to play with while you eat, try decorating your fingers with the rings.
Because of the small size of this cute beverage, many people mistake it for children’s drinks. Bet the truth is that Yakult is actually for all ages. It is a probiotic dairy drink that aids easy digestion. Even if you are lactose intolerant, you can still enjoy Yakult. It contains just a minimal amount of lactose. Let Yakult spend a few minutes in the freezer and give yourself a refreshing icy treat.
3: Dried Squid
Don’t give me that face yet. Just imagine this as tasty seafood you will love to enjoy. Dried squid is a fun savory Asian snack you won’t feel guilty consuming. The first bite will, no doubt, convince you to dig more into it.
#4: fruit and gummy soda candies
We usually have Japanese gummy candies coming in diverse textures and flavors. Familiar flavors could include the soda and fruity flavors. If you don’t want to go with the regular gummies, you can also find some that are sugar-coated. We also have some that have a hard candy-shell coating but feels very soft in the inside.
5: Lychee Jelly
Are you a fan of lychee? Then you need to watch out for these dangerously addictive tiny cups of jelly. They are often loaded with sweet juiciness, and some include real lychee as a surprise.
6: Asian rice crackers
This is another fantastic Asian snack you will love to try. Don’t even compare it with the regular rice crackers you find in grocery aisles. Packed with a unique flavor, the golden crisps is having a real good time challenging the bland Western version.
