Review: Japanese Sake Kit Kat, JFG March Madness, & Burger or Fries: Which Is The Last Bite?
JFG Nation, March Madness has begun! Sort of. The “First Four” kicked off last night with the first two play-in games. I watched Wake Forest crumble after a Flagrant 1 where a Wake player tried to grab a K State player’s foot while lying flat on his back on the ground. OH THE DRAMA. FYI: two days ago I gave the instructions for joining the 2017 JFG March Madness Pool! To enter, click here. The pool ID# is 95312. All the JFG Rules were spelled out yesterday. JOIN UP!
Now, a question: who out there loves cheeseburgers and fries? We all do, right? But when you’re eating a burger and fries, what do you want your LAST BITE to be? I was out with the JFGal eating a burger and fries and this became a debate. She insisted, “Always end on a fry bite because it’s salty starchy and good.” I always end on a delicious burger bite, finishing my fries before that last bite, because I want a meaty afterflavor to linger. The JFGal was incredulous.
What say you, JFG Nation? Your last bite: burger or fries? Tell me in the comments below.
Today’s junk food: Japanese Sake Kit Kat!!
There are many flavors of Kit Kats out there, and an amazing variety of them come from Japan. Being an avid reader of food blogs like I know many of you are, I’ve seen my share of crazy flavors. But Sake flavored??! When Doctor Sis brought these back from Japan, I HAD TO TRY THEM.
Sake is, by the way, a rice based alcohol very popular in Japan. It’s basically clear and has a floral sweet flavor. I love it. Waaaaay to easy to take shots of.
DO THESE TASTE GOOD? Wow. YES.
WHY OR WHY NOT? When I opened the tall box, I could immediately smell the aroma of sake, which is sort of sweet. The bars themselves weren’t chocolate; they were a white confection. Biting into one, the sake flavor was unmistakeable – sweet, pairing perfectly with the creamy sweetness of the white coating. It was uncanny, like eating a sake-soaked dessert cake. Just…just awesome. I was blown away.
ANYTHING ELSE I SHOULD KNOW? Sorry if my descriptions aren’t great – I guess you have to start from the place of knowing what sake tastes like before anything else. But if you do, THESE WERE THE BOMB DOT COM.
PURCHASED AT: Japan!
WHERE FOUND IN STORE? Big display at the airport.
COST? I’m gonna guess like $3-$4.
