Which is the most popular snack in your country?

6 posts in this topic

coxinha-de-frango-f8-14259.jpg?201301270

Here in my country there is a snack called "coxinha" (I think it's not possible to translate into English because there isn't exist a word for it). The flavors may vary depending on the recipe (chicken, beef, cheese, chocolate , strawberry...)  

I can't describe in detail the ingredients, so ... I preferred to post a picture. ^_^

In the olden days, we have the native food like rice cake and porridge for snacks. Later on we have the banana cue, that is fried plantain with sugar and attached to a stick for convenience in eating. We actually have a  long list of snack foods with main ingredients coming from the farm.

But some 40 years ago, our country was conquered by American fast foods and hamburger slowly replaced our native snacks. Now I would say that the most popular snack in our country is the sandwich (hamburger, cheeseburger, bacon blt, etc) with french fries followed by pizza.

I would say it is banana chips, at least in our State and neighboring ones.  It is prepared by frying banana slices in coconut oil or any other edible oils.  But if you prepare it in coconut oil its taste would be amazing.  I can’t stop myself  eating banana chips and it is the main snack item especially during festive seasons here.  They are crispy, delicious and nutritious too.  They are very easy to prepare and I think that is why they are so popular here.  But there is no compromise on taste too. It makes the perfect tea time snacks and in fact you can eat it at  anytime you wish.

I would say that street foods rule our place. Fried fish balls, squid balls, one day old chick, fried tofu and of course coconut juice. A lot of vendors sell these types of food around our place and all of them earn well. Which means the food is so popular there is no reason for a competition because the demand is way too big. I even remember seeing a whole lot selling the same food and all of them make a lot of earning everyday. If I'm not mistaken, the pace they used was around 400 to 500 square meters and they were selling the same food side by side. there are about 15 to 20 stalls selling the same thing. At the end of the day all of them sold all of their stuff.

The best thing when it comes to Asian countries are their street foods. Whenever I go to visit other countries, I always look for their street foods because that count as an identification of who they really were. So far, I love Korean and Japanese street foods because they looked more healthier and clean. In our country, street foods are the best snack out of the plastic foil wrapped versions because they're not really ours, we've just borrowed them from other countries just say for example corn and potato chips. :D
