This month's theme was Taste of Taiwan. I was psyched about this theme. You all probably know now that I love asian food. It is just way better than all other foods in my opinion. I probably sound super biased right now.
Sachima- This was fantastic. It was kinda like a rice krispy treat, but was really light and melted in your mouth. This had a strong caramel flavor. But I really can't get over how great this was. I am definitely buying it the next time I make a trip to the ole asian market.
Rice Cracker- I've gotten this in the Skoshbox Promo Box, and a past dumplingbox. It is pretty much a classic. But this one is more sweet than savory.
Sesame Pastry- This was very similar to the banh cam I made recently (recipe here, it was really good. If you are confused on the name, just call them sesame balls). Except my banh cam had a bean filling, this was very airy in the middle. But the flavor on the outside was the same. I also really liked the texture of this, very light.
Squid- I love squid! I eat squid jerky all the time with a spicy sauce. This tasted good, once you got past the fishy taste. It is kinda sweet tasting, that's why I usually eat it with a spicy sauce.
Pumpkin Cake- I got two of these, but I'm not complaining because they were awesome. The pumpkin flavor was very subtle. I wouldn't describe it as a cake, but whatever.
Peanut Brittle- This was ok, I thought it was a bit hard.
Overall, I loved my June tasting bar, and it was definitely worth the ten bucks. My favorite thing was the Sachima, but the Sesame Pastry was a close second.
Verdict: Awesome Box.
