european snacks galore

leave a comment »

I’m a big snacker. Here’s a gallery of snacks I picked up during my Europe travels.

#1: pure pomelo and blood red orange juice – In Italy near the Trevi Fountain. Very tart, no sugar added.


#2: oregano flavored potato chips – Athens Airport. Tastes like you think it would taste like.


#3: citrus shortbread cookies and sour candies – Shortbreads are complimentary on first class Italian trains. Guess what? They contain trans fats! I think I only ate one of ’em. The sour candies are from the Tabacchi in Vezzano Basso. They are in the shape of little pacifiers.


#4: olive flavored crackers – From the bus station in Florence. A nice snack with a light olive-y taste.


#5: french fry snacks – From a vending machine in Paris. Tastes like straight up oil.


#6: candy hippo – From the Tabbachi in Vezzano Basso again. Crispy hippo shaped wafer. Filled with chocolate and hazelnut cream, hazelnut pieces on the underside. Really, really sweet.
