The nice thing about having ready access to Uwajimaya is the availability of all kinds of asian flavored snacks, and also some of the harder to find anglo flavored ones (garlic deep fried peanuts, for example). The Uwaj also has an entire ramen isle, which we’ll get into later…
– Uncle Bud’s deep fried garlic peanuts
– dehydrated okra & green beans
– raw cashews
– tamari almonds
– roasted & salted soy nuts
– spicy roasted pepitas
The Uncle Bud’s are the winner here… Harpo and I have been buying them down at Uwajimaya for a minute. You can get the rest of the ingredients at any well stocked store with a bulk department. The key is offsetting the expense of the raw cashews with other cheap ingredients like the spicy pepitas, or sesame seeds if you prefer. Basically, Groucy Mix is salty & mouthy, with some crisp moments and a creamy finish. Them little chipmunks, with their bandit mascara, love it… positive reviews all around.
