No, that last word is not a typo. I am just a big fan of Hapi brand Japanese snacks. You can see the truth in the photo.
Anyway, on Thursday we really needed to go grocery shopping. My partner suggested something out of the ordinary from our local grocer and I agreed. So we packed a cooler with freezer packs and drove south toward Cincinnati, Ohio in the Midwest United States.
Not a long drive; oh, is it worthwhile. Besides the snack stuffs pictured and that wonderful sizzling Hungarian style bacon we brought home a sour cherry flavored goat cheese spread, fresh baked crusty bread, jellied tongue deli slices, and packages of frozen natto (fermented soybean, a traditional Japanese breakfast food over steamed rice – yum). There is more, too. We spent about $150 and really stocked up.
Sometimes it’s not so bad living in a flyover state packed with boring chain restaurants. I just wish we could pull up a stretch of oceanfront beach. ~sigh~ Thank heaven for Jungle Jim’s!
