Lotte Roasted Ohing Snack: Combining clam, octopus, shrimp, and kelp, these curled wheat crackers have a potent sweet and savory flavor reminiscent of a seafood stew with a generous helping of gochugaru (Korean chili flakes). It's a little unbalanced because the finish is very sweet, but the flavor overall is unique. Highly seasoned. Purchased from HMart. 3.0/5.0

Bear Strawberry Yo Yos: I purchased these fruit snacks from Boxed at work. Each pack consists of two mini-spirals of strawberry fruit leather, kind of like a thicker, better quality fruit roll up but packaged on its side. This type of snack is more for taste than anything else, as the portion size is not filling. But as far as fruit leather goes, it's pretty decent. 3.0/5.0

Hanco's Honey Green Tea with Lychee Jelly: I'm not homesick per se, but I do find myself frequently sad about the lack of good bubble tea options in NYC. I think I had 5 different bubble tea stamp cards in the bay area, and I only have one for NYC, at a bubble tea shop that closes at 8pm during the week (Mr. Wish). Given that most of my bubble tea purchases in Berkeley or SF were late night impulses, I don't get to drink much of it here. Hanco's, a Vietnamese sandwich shop close to me, has pretty bad boba from my previous experie... (read more) 3.0/5.0

Wringley's Extra grape flavored gum: I'm not a big fan of gum. You might have noticed that, as I have zero gum reviews on Tasty Snacking and don't believe I've ever bought a pack of gum in mg life. This Wringley's Extra grape-flavored gum is from China and was offered to me by a friend. It has a Chiclet-like coating though it is thinner and longer in shape. Its flavor doesn't last very long, but it reminds me of Hi Chews with a concentrated fruit candy taste that I actually enjoyed, while it lasted. Overall, pretty decent, as ... (read more) 3.0/5.0

Trader Joe's Mini Dark Chocolate Mint Coins: About 3/4 of the size of a Girl Scout's Thin Mint, TJ's mini version is black on black, with a mint chocolate cookie covered in dark chocolate. It tastes exactly as you would expect it to, which isn't too different than a Thin Mint, just slightly thinner and with less of a chocolate coating. In other words, neither good nor bad. 3.0/5.0

Annie's Original snack mix: Generally, I like Annie's crackers, and I like snack mixes, so I figured this Annie's snack mix with pretzels, bread sticks, and bunny crackers (cheddar and plain flavored) would be promising. Unfortunately, it wasnt very interesting and became salty after a few handfulls. In particular, the bread sticks and plain crackers have very little taste and seem to be there merely for texture, and maybe to dilute the saltiness of the pretzels. 3.0/5.0
