Normally on Fridays I post a taste test pitting American foods against their versions from another country. Sadly, I’m back in my hometown to visit family and cannot post one of those today. But don’t be too sad for me, I’m from Hawai’i….
Did jealousy rear its ugly head as you bundle under an umbrella and jacket in the cold, wet weather you’re currently suffering in?!?!
Alright, alright, I’ll stop torturing you. Heck, I’m even going to give you some great news. Next week’s taste test will pit American Ritz Crackers against their British counterpart.
But wait, that’s not all! (Sorry, for the infomercial tag line, but it’s 0530 and that’s all there is on TV as I type.) I’m testing Japan’s Ritz Crackers also.
We can all thank the Shank List for this delightful twist. A few weeks ago, I added Corey to the list. It was his birthday and I had forgotten a gift, so I decided the gift of the Shank List was the only way to go. In order to get off the Shank List I gave him three options. He (or his wife) decided to go with the second option which was to send me Japanese treats that I could taste.
I received Ritz Crackers, three types of Kit Kats, Oreo cookies, what appears to be a Nestle Crunch Bar, and some hard candies. I’m not going to lie, I’m intrigued by the Kit Kat that requires you to finish baking it after you buy it.
