Where's the green bag of onion rings?
hmmm...be more specific. asian funyons? theres alot more i couldve listed but i thought of just putting my favorites.
i still LOVE white rabbit candy. my mom's asian students always bring em to her, and she gives em to me =)
and shrimp chips - i think i loved them most because nobody else in my dorm/family liked them AT ALL, meaning i could trust that they would not be snarfed by some ne'er do-well.
pocky - 'nuff said.
don't forget the little yogurt drinks! buy em frozen, thaw and suck em down in 6-pack frenzies. keeps ya regular, too! ;-)
yeah those yogurt drinks are good too. pocky and yan yan are both "nuff said's".
when i was little, my baby-sitter was filipino and she once gave me this ice cream that was purple, and to this day i have no idea what flavor it was, but it was the best damn ice cream i've ever had and i wish i had some right now.
your entry just threw me back into my childhood, lol.

its like purple yams..
but its sooo goood =]
oh my goodness! thank you so much! there's a filipino grocery up my block and i swear tomorrow i'm gonna be out there waiting for it to open!
UBE! yup like the anonymus poster below me has stated, it is UBE flkavored. i wasnt a fan growing up but i like it now. go support UBE flavored ice cream and picket with me in fron of baskn robins and we'll try to make it "32" flavors of ice cream.
hell yeah! i'm all all for making ube ice cream mainstream.
you don't know how happy this made me, just finding out what this flavor is. the last time i had it was when i was 7 or 8. seriously. your livejournal makes me life sometimes. :)
we don't have an asian market here, i think at last count this town had something like 823 asian people, some real countable number. and the little girl i know who came from china three years ago only feeds me seaweed. but now i am educated. what is the white rabbit candy actually?
you know, i dont know what the white rabbit candy is. its really good though. if you ever do come across an asian market, swing in a buy some, most of what i listed are real cheap.
That frog on the bubble gum is so damn cute! it's like something outta Sanrio!
haha, you mean "keroppi?" yeah it sorta does look like him.
craziness, im eating pocky now
i like these peach/green apple
that my japanese teacher, yuki
use to give us in 4th grade.
he also gave us white rabbit
I remember when I was around 4 with my mum going to the local Chinese takawayand the propreiotr's good friends with us so he'd give me 'monster sweets'!? That's all I remember them by! They were green, pink and yellow, I think and they were chewy and yummy!
you know i heard they recalled all those "jellies" that come in those small cups cause a kid choked on it and dies here in the states. i use to eat those up as well.
i remember the jellies, too. they were soooo good.
kids here in the states don't know how to do anything right. everything's a problem with them, lol.
nice... i love yan yan and pocky!
we have a sari-sari store where i live in indianapolis
we go there frequently
wow, i havent heard the word "sari-sari" in a awhile now. bringing it back.
whenever i went to toronto, i'd ask to go to a convenience store to get some reese's peanut butter cups (damn i love them), and sometimes we'd be in chinatown. my mom always hesitated, but when she relented and i went inside, it was as if the asians had never heard of peanut butter. so many weird foods, so many shady packagings. heh. ^_^
is it just me, or does that Calbee logo look an awwwwwwwwwwful lot like the Coca-Cola logo? hmmmmmmmmmmmm
yeah goign to an asian food market isnt the easiest thing to do if your not familiar with what youre looking for, calbee could be owned by coca cola. or both might belong to the same company. you know like these conglomerates that own like 30 different food brands. peanut butter cups are the fucking shit. if crack came in candy form, i swear to god it would have peanut butter in it.
i never heard of these snacks...i lived a sheltered life...lol...i might have to try these one day...but i dont know about the gum....i dont want to lose a teeth now.
