I love Asian grocery stores, because I like unusual food. Â So I couldn’t resist the Wonderfarm brand White Fungus Bird’s Nest drink. Â The can claims the ingredients are: water, sugar, white fungus and bird’s nest. Â It’s a clear liquid with chunks of white stuff floating in it. Â Oddly enough, it tastes like a liquid twinkie. Â The Wonderfarm web site claims this stuff is a “health supplement”. Â Nothing like a whole lotta sugar to turbo-up your health performance. Â Frankly, this stuff is kinda boring. Â Other than looking a little weird, it doesn’t bring anything to the game.
But then there’s Pocky. Â I happen to love Pocky. Â I could not turn down the chance to try some “Men’s Pocky”. Â At last! Â Pocky – for him! Ok, it’s dark chocolate Pocky, and of course, it’s delicious. Â WTF it has to do with Testosterone-Americans, I can’t say. Â Perhaps if you eat enough of it you become a sumo wrestler. Â Not a bad idea, really.
