During my visit with my sister in the UAE, I would get so excited when we need to stop for gas.
(Well, once I got past the fact that you don't pump your own gas. They have attendants who do it for you and wash your windows).
She would always end up going inside the gas station store for a soda or cappuccino, and I would run right in there behind her.
I was so fascinated with the foreign snacks. I always heard how they are different from here in the USA. And there I was, seeing it for myself.
Some of my favorites:
This chip was odd, though.
Still good. But I think the equivalent at home is the cheddar sour cream chips (Does Lays make that?)
Hot and Spicy Pringles!
Now for some chips indigenous to that area...
Lebanese mix Baked Lays
Another baked Lays: Labneh and Mint.
Labneh (which is also an ingredient in the lebanese mix above) is basically yogurt. My sister said that it is drinkable yogurt (so I guess that is like "keifer" at home?) I was skeptical about the mint, though. Mint on potato chips? Ick. But it was... okay. I couldn't taste the mint, so I guess that is a good thing. But it tasted like a sour cream potato chip. Interesting. Let's just say, I didn't buy it again.
I was all over those chili and french cheese chips, though! Those were good!
