Falafel Snax

So what are the things that tempt me the most at the supermarket? It's not the Barbecue-flavored potato chips, Taco Doritos<, or Chee-tohs. It's not the Entenmann's Cheese Danish, the fun-size Kit-Kats, or Haagen Daz Coffee Ice Cream.

Well, actually, at one time or another it's all of those things, and more. I am only human, after all.

But every once in a while my eyes will pass over something unusual. And so potentially wrong. So wrong I simply must buy it and take it home with me.

And that is how this package of Osem Falafel-flavor Bissli came home with me. Falafel-flavored chips? What could those possibly be like? I just had to know. When I poured them into the bowl, they reminded me of thicker, crunchier chow mein noodles.And they are similar, at least in texture and crunch. Bu they do not taste the same. Neither do they taste like falafel, exactly, although the cumin and other spices do provide a flavor faintly reminiscent. Their texture also reminds me a little of sesame sticks, but they are even crunchier than that, if you can believe it.

And while they do not taste like falafel, they do taste good. I don't know if I will buy them again, but if they were offered to me at a party I wouldn't refuse them.
