Asia is known for its diverse and fascinating culinary culture, from homemade dishes with recipes passed down through generations, to everyday street foods and tasty snacks. Of course, the list cannot go on without the unique and addictive snacks adored by kids and adults alike. Here are the snacks to look for at Haisue, an Asian online grocery store that ships across Canada.
Fried Fish Skin with Salted Egg Yolk Flavor
This crunchy snack originated from Singapore and quickly became popular across East Asia, especially Hong Kong. The combination of the fatty flavor from deep-fried fish skin with the briny salted egg yolk – a common ingredient in Eastern and Southeast Asian cooking – will definitely bring you a satisfying experience.
If you come from Vietnam, you will probably remember eating crab chips all the time in your childhood. It’s fun to eat when you have a craving for something crispy.
Kit Kat with Red Bean Flavor
Kit Kat is a Japanese brand famous for its unique tastes and beautiful packaging. If your kids love a mildly sweet snack to bring to school, try Kit Kat red bean-flavored biscuit covered in white chocolate.
Calamansi Juice Drink
Summer days are coming, and what better refreshment to have but calamansi juice? The drink is best served cold and will rejuvenate your mind after a long day with a lot of vitamins and a tropical flavor.
Milk Tea-Flavored Potato Chips
As weird as it sounds, Chinese Lay’s chips beautifully balance the typical saltiness of potato chips and the sweetly addictive flavor of milk tea. This snack is perfect for a cozy movie night.
Brown Sugar Bubble Tea Ball
Packaged tapioca balls for your brown sugar bubble tea craving? Why not? The bite-sized snack is chewy and flavorful, although the calories level is probably not for those on diet.
Thai Sweet Chilli-Flavored Peanut
If you have an appetite for sweet and spicy treats, think of this delightful peanut snack from Thailand.
Instant noodles are definitely one of the most iconic and well-loved in Asia. From Japan, you can find a range of noodles, such as ramen or udon, that comes with a packaged soup powder. They are full of flavor and can be just as delicious as those prepared in a restaurant.
The famous Vietnamese dish – phở – can also be found in a convenient instant noodle bowl. The taste is slightly sweeter than an authentic one and it comes with real beef.
