Dominican Snacks

I brought back a few things to try from La Romana, Dominican Republic. I was planning on getting more at the Punta Cana airport but unfortunately we only had 7 minutes before boarding and I choose to grab a sandwich for the plane (fatty). The sandwich was actually not very enjoyable, it had sweet pickles in it! A little different.

This is a guava nectar juice box which was actually really good, it was sweet and strong flavored. I just got a wonderful idea: Guava Mimosas!

These are a bag of Plantain chips. Plantains are very popular in the Dominican, they look like a banana but are actually savory vs sweet which can be deceiving. In one of the restaurants in our resort for lunch they served chips and pico de gallo but instead of the typical tortilla chip they were plantain chips. These chips are 100% natural with only 3 ingredients of green plantain, oil and salt. I ate one, they were okay, kind of bland.

And lastly, what appears to be some sort of cookie. I know this is a processed food item, although I can’t read the ingredients because they’re in Spanish but I just wanted to try them and I only had one bite. The package has a stick of butter, an egg, pecans, and a strawberry on it. They were good, they reminded me of a pop tart and reminded Monkey of a fig newton.

I thought it would be a new fun thing to do to start going to ethnic grocery stores and buying random foods to try.
