Another one of those things that caught my eye in the Indian market.  Even though BeetRoots and a carrot are featured on the front of the container, they aren’t the major ingredients. That goes to Pineapple (concentrate) and Orange Juice (concentrate), and water.

There are so many fruits and veggies in this blend…

  • Pineapple
  • Orange
  • Mango
  • Apricot
  • Banana
  • Passion Fruit
  • Apple
  • Guava
  • Beet Root
  • Carrot
  • Cucumber
  • Green Pepper
  • Lime
  • Onion
  • Sauerkraut
  • Celery

Thankfully it tasted alright. The onion sauerkraut, and green pepper did make me hesitate before taking my first sip. It was like fruit juice from concentrate with only hints of the other parts.

Theses banana waffers/chips are seasoned with black pepper and salt.

Quite different from the  sweet banana chips I’m used to seeing.

Eggnog Tiramisu?

Over the holiday weekend I had the chance to try a variation on one of my favorite desserts. The Tiramisu.  Swap out the cocoa topping with a eggnog flavored cream. The flavor/color  is all that was really different. The textures and layers were still present and in line with  Tiramisu.

Overall I still prefer the “classic” Tiramisu. Best to keep the eggnog in drink form and Tiramisu as itself.


Hope everyone had a great Christmas/ Holiday celebration.


Snacks from India: Plain Chakri

This snack from India is for those who like spirals.  This is literally flour and spices in the shape of a spiral. This form does help to add texture to the snack.


MTR Badam (Almond) drink

Badam = Almond in language of India.  Quite simply an almond “Milk” drink with almond bits mixed in. I enjoyed it but, could have done without the bits.

Snacks from India: Puri “for Bhel”

A package of Puri

These are for a lack of a better word, like round chips. Good for the crunch, familiar and easy to eat.  Bombay Magic also offers Masala flavored Puri, but “Puri for Bhel” is the neutral version. mainly flour, and light on the Indian spices.
