Y'know, I still have a package of Peeps that we forgot to eat, from this past Easter. We will now have a Peeps microwave tournament as entertainment for our next barbecue. Since I have one of those new Advantium ovens I will need to find the proper setting so the Peeps don't get blown to h***. Thanks!

    I really like the shrimp flavored chips.

    Some of my coworkers snack on that shing shang stuff through out the day. We politely decline their offers to share...

        The Asians have the lock on this category. Sure, my local Asian supermarkets have plenty of good snacks to offer, but for every delicious Gentlemen's Pocky or Kasugai Peanut and You out there there's a Sakura Shrimp-Flavored Chip or Orchid Hot Prepared Cuttlefish to challenge this Westerner's taste buds.

        And by "challenge" I mean totally gross out.

         
        I encountered these for the first time last weekend:
         

         
        After listening to the comments of others I decided that they weren't for me, and on a weekend where snacks and junk food are consumed in large quantities they went mostly untouched.

            I tried bacon flavored peanuts the other day and they were the worst thing I ever put into my mouth. The flavor of bacon was ok but it didn't mix well with the peanut flavor. After a few minutes it tasted like chemicals and dried out my mouth. I couldn't drink enough beer to get the taste out of my mouth!!!

            Boiled peanuts. I love peanuts, but boiled nuts are like tasteless mush. They are nasty and I don't understand how anyone can eat them.
             
            Boiled eggs. They smell like farts and are not that much better. I do like eggs a lot, but like peanuts above, it's all about preperation.
             
            Peppermint/chocolate candy (like Peppermint Patty's). Love peppermint candy. Love chocolate. Together it's not palatable to me.
             
            Any candy with coconut in it. Coconut tastes like fruity wood shavings.

              I thought you lived in China.  Chinese loved boiled peanuts.  My China born wife is always wanting to stop and buy boiled peanuts whenever we are in the south.  All egg dishes stink, hate them all.  Love peppermint, chocolate and them together.  Agree completely on coconut.

                    The brand you showed is pretty mediocre. Now, mind you, I was introduced to Kroepoek in the Netherlands, where it's very popular. The fresher they are, the better; they go stale within a couple of days (they sell "fresh" kroepoek in an Oriental supermarket near me, but it's usually made with bad oil. Other than going to Indonesia or the Netherlands, the only way to see how good they really are is to buy them uncooked, and deep fat fry them yourself.
