My Favorite Asian Snacks

I love snacking and sometimes I have weird cravings when I wake up in the middle of the night. One time I woke up around 1 a.m. & started to crave salt and vinegar Lays chips.

But lately I’ve been craving lots of snacks from the Asian market. When I’m shopping for produce and meat at the asian supermarket, I make sure I grab some of the following snacks each visit. And I’m visiting at least twice a week, so it’s always snack time! I know, I know, I should eat healthier…

Shrimp Snacks (Original flavor)

These are my absolute favorite snack that I pretty much buy every time I’m at an Asian supermarket. They are basically these light and crispy chips supposedly made from real shrimp. I’m not sure if I taste the shrimp, but it is salty goodness that I need in my life. The bag says to grab your favorite dip, but I love them plain and original. The chips just melt in your mouth and lately I’ve been super addicted.

Sweet Corn

These are addicting as well! If you’ve ever eaten cheese balls, these are basically corn balls. They are yellow colored balls with the same sort of texture as cheese balls and they taste like sweet corn. I’m captain obvious today. They’re a perfect combo of sweet and salty, but mostly sweet. It’s kind of like popcorn in a different form.

Prepared Shredded Squid

This is obviously not for everybody since it’s seafood. But if you’re down to try it, it’s dried squid with seasoning and a hint sweetness. I usually go for the original flavor, but it comes in spicy if you like hot stuff.

Boy Bawang

Bawang is tagalog for garlic. Boy Bawang is like the Filipino version of Corn Nuts. And it’s highly addicting. The most common flavor is garlic, but there are so many other flavors like hot and spicy, barbecue, and adobo flavored. Again, I’m basic and opt for the garlic flavor.

Hi-Chew

I believe this year was the first time I had a Hi-Chew. They are basically a chewy candy, kind of like taffy. There are many different fruity flavors, but of the ones I’ve tried, my favorite flavors are mango and melon.

Pocky or Pepero

I always love Pocky or Pepero! They are dipped biscuit sticks. My favorite Pocky flavors are Strawberry and Green Tea. The strawberry ones can get a little too sweet sometimes, but it doesn’t hurt to have some once in a while. As for Pepero, I absolutely love the White Cookie Chocolate Covered Cookie Stick. I just discovered this flavor a few months ago, & it was heaven.


Dragon fruit

Here’s to a healthy snack. When I first saw a dragon fruit, I was mesmerized by its colorful, bright skin and it’s odd shape. It’s a cactus fruit with a bunch of health benefits. I read somewhere that it helps control blood sugar levels, so as a person having diabetes, it’s good to have. I usually buy a pre-cut cup of dragon fruit as opposed to the whole fruit. It’s much easier in my opinion.

What things are you snacking on at the moment?
