Wei Long Spicy Konjac Crisp: I purchased this Chinese snack from JMart in Flushing knowing it would either be surprisingly good or strangely awful. The packaging had limited English, with a stickered label saying it was a product from China, had been imported and distributed by a center in East Williamsburg, and contains as its main ingredients drinking water (as opposed to non-potable water) and edible salt and sugar (versus inedible).

Tao Kae Noi kimchi flavored Super Crisp: This is the last of the Tao Kae Noi line of grilled seaweed snacks I had yet to try from my local Hmart. The umami-rich flavor has a great balance of savory and sweet. The spicy kimchi taste builds and lingers. A uniquely crispy and substantial seaweed snack. 3.5/5.0

Tao Kae Noi Super Crisp grilled seaweed (classic flavor): Seaweed crisped to an almost chip-like consistency. Thicker than most seaweed strips. Robust flavor somewhat reminiscent of a teriyaki glaze. Surprisingly sweet. Actually really tasty. 4.0/5.0

Clif Crunch Blueberry Crisp: The first crunchy granola bar I've had that is actually moist, with dried blueberries and a crumble-like coating. Perfectly sized for a nourishing yet delicious mid-day snack. 4.0/5.0
