My friend saw some pocky-like vanilla dipsticks.
'Mmm a vanilla dipstick. That's me', he said.
We saw many interesting things, again. I am more and more drawn to things that look cute, but are unidentifiable - with little English description on the packaging.
These are chip-like snacks with sushi-like images on the packaging. I bet they look nothing like the packaging suggests.
This is green pumpkin juice. After last time's pumpkin seed debacle, my friend was not touching this drink.
This is something with a frog on. I don't know?
This is maybe apple juice? Maybe tomato juice?
These are mini icecream cone looking sweets.
This is a cat that likes pineapple.
We made our choices.
My friend bought these delights. I love his fusion food direction.
Ola! Jack and Jill Piattos and orange sangararia! Ola!
We termed his snack 'A little bit of Japanish'! Japanese crossed with Spanish.
I thought his choices were a little boring at first. After all, he did just pick a packet of potato chips of the shelf without much consideration or commentary. But he reminded me 'I went Japanish'.
Due to me eating a ridiculous amount of junk food before and during uni today, clearly too disgusting to spell out in separate words - onesmallboxofpotatomashies,threekfcdrumsticks,bottleofcoke,lordofthefrieswithcheeseandgravy -I was not up for much food at the Asian Snack Challenge tonight.
I was drawn to the cute, impractical dust collecting toys.
A chicken, as featured in Get that sausage!
This thing here is a duck with a plant stem in its head. The stem moves in the light.
'Flip Flap is a cute flower bud which moves by light. Please grow your Flip Flap in your mind and bloom your own special flower. Please do not give water'.
And some Krispy Kreme-esque chips.
Disappointingly, but predictably, the chips looked and tasted nothing like Krispy Kreme donuts.
They tasted like sweet peanut flavoured popcorn.
I ate three of them, dropped one on the floor, and shared one with Plastic Chicken.
Plastic Chicken both makes a squeak, and has eggs inside its bum. I will need to unwrap the eggs so I can make it lay.
As the train pulled into North Melbourne station, we did a bit of a pantomime with Plastic Chicken, and we were reminded of that other chicken on video incident. Boris the Chicken, a video made by the North Melbourne Football Club. Coincidence?
Here is our pantomime. Much more g-rated.
Plastic Chicken ate a Jack and Jill Piatto and said 'mmmm cheesy, mmm Japanish'.
And just like in all other Asian Snack Challenges, we laughed and laughed.
