|Trying out some snacks from World Bites|
We got really excited pulling out snacks from the box one at a time. It was amusing to find out which countries it came from! We actually yelled the countries as though we're announcing contestants in a beauty pageant, haha!
Here are the snacks we tried out :

Kurkure Masala Munch from India are shaped like Cheetos - orange, crunchy, short sticks and filled with strong flavors. My brother commented, "it tastes like India in a snack". Being a fan of herbs, I actually enjoyed its salty, mildly spicy and tangy taste.
After consuming salty food, I always crave for something sweet, so we opened the Crvenka Jaffa Cakes next. Originating from Serbia, these chocolate-covered biscuits with orange jelly has been around for 30 years now. It crumbled easily, a bit messy to eat, but I liked the mix of citrus and chocolate.

My sister and I are huge football fans and another country which we associate to the world's most popular sport is 5-time World Cup winners, Brazil! Finding a snack from the same country turned out to be a nice surprise. Nestle Passatempo are biscuits with milk chocolate filling - you can't go wrong with that. :)
I love eating falafel, balled up chickpeas usually served with a pita. Ossem Bisli Falafel from Israel has recreated its flavors wonderfully into thin, noodle crisps. (Foodie tip : If you want to try some good falafel, the real deal, visit Beni's Falafel in Makati!)
All the way from Romania, Eugenia Original biscuits are crisp sandwich biscuits with a generous and enjoyable filling of cocoa and rum cream.

Samai Jungle Chili Plantain Chips from Ecuador puts a nice twist to plantain chips. Instead of the usual sugar or honey, the chips are mixed with jungle chili and medium hot spices, making it tolerable to the palate.
Another treat for those with a sweet tooth is Ahlgrens Bilar Original. Originating from Sweden, these car-shaped marshmallows are chewy and fruity. It's not too sweet, something you can have to get you to the next big meal.
I've seen Nestle Violet Crumble around but I don't remember ever tying it out. First made in 1913, this bar made of creamy chocolate with a honeycomb in its center is one of Australia's favorite chocolate bars.
Being a curious foodie, it was a great experience trying out a World Bites Classic box. The selection of snacks were quite good - a mix of flavors - sweet, salty and spicy. Serving size is good for one person but it's really fun to open everything at the same time and try it out with a group. It's also a nice gift idea for your foodie loved ones.
