Closeup of Adenishiki

I don't suppose you have any idea what those are. Well maybe you do, if you've eaten it before! They do look interesting don't they? They're not anything weird but thing is, I've seen them around but always decided against eating it. Why not?

Well, that's because they're nothing more than just crackers with nuts in them. I am a fan of nuts and thought it redundant to place them in crackers. Haha... well I was ignorant I guess.

Anyway these are called adenishiki, which means mixed bean crackers. I think they're of Japanese origins. I do recall seeing them in japanese packaging all the time. There's just so many! I love Japanese foods, they're so innovative and creative. More about my favourite jap foods another time.

Today, it's all about adenishiki:

Camel Adenishiki

I bought it from school's co-op because I was craving for nuts and felt adventurous as usual.
I like these adenishiki because it's fun to eat! I like the different textures and taste. Some are coated with sesame seeds... and you know what.. these had crispy mini ikan bilis (anchovies) in it. yum. . .

Oh oh, i have a habit of reading labels on whatever I eat... so let's see what the ingredients list says:

read the fine print

check that out! monkey nuts! and silicon... oh oh, and rape seed oil. Haha.. okay I'm being really mean now i know. but can someone tell me what are monkey nuts? peanuts ya? and silicon? do you mean i've traces of silicon in my body? let's hope not. and hmph, rape seed oil? or do they mean grape seed oil! look at the difference one alphabet makes. :p

all right, enough of that... anyway i gotta say I do like adenishiki! okies. i have to go now. have a social research assignment to complete! and exams to study... oh, the life of an undergrad....
