Saffron & Rose Faloodeh and pistachio Turkish ice cream: Returning to this small ice cream shop after 3 years, I found Saffron & Rose has all grown up. Gone are the glass walls, replaced by an orange red drywall, and the generic white cups have been styled with their logo printed on the side. Also missing was the kind owner, who relentlessly handed me every flavor in the shop to sample (without me even asking).

Alasehir Sarikz strawberry flavored sparking water: Purchased from the Turkish grocery store Sevan in Watertown, this brand of sparkling water comes in an assortment of fruit flavors. The stout green bottle provides just enough beverage to accompany a small meal. Flavorwise, the strawberry drink reminded me of fruit-flavored paste sometimes used in dental cleaning.

Simsek Cikolatali Gofret: Turkish wafer chocolate bar from my latest Munchpak. The wafer is reminiscent of Joy ice cream cones: flaky styrofoam devoid of flavor. A thin layer of milk chocolate with a waxy mouthfeel coats. 1.5/5.0

Biscolata dublex: Turkish chocolate bar with a biscuit foundation and cream-filled milk chocolate. Excessive? There is 16g of saturated fat in a bar, 100% of your daily recommended serving. (In)conveniently, the nutrition facts are discretely covered by the wrapper's fold, and the sugar content is nowhere to be found. Flavor-wise, we have a common vending machine milk chocolate bar with a crunchy biscuit base: familiar and generally inoffensive. 2.5/5.0

Pera rose-flavored Turkish delights: Bite-sized, chewy snacks with a prominent but not overpowering rose flavor. Texture could be softer, but the flavor is very good. Brought from Paris. 3.5/5.0
