Foreign Grocery Friday: The Hyper Chocolate Bar of Hungary
When we travel, one of our favorite things to do is to pop into a local grocery store and check out the food products and candies we'd never find anywhere else. So we're trying out this new feature, Foreign Grocery Friday, where each week we'll feature some of our (and your) favorite overseas treats. Got a recommendation? Let us know!
From just two days in Budapest the other week, it seems like we could fill six months worth of Foreign Grocery Friday features. Offensive, weird, funny-sounding...who knew snacks and candy could be so odd?
The best of the bunch, though, was the Hyper chocolate baror, as the packet has it: "The wafer for big people."
The taste: At about 8in, it was indeed pretty big. The wafer was nice and crunchy, too. Sadly, the chocolate just wasn’t good; it tasted of cardboard. Edible if you’re Hungary (sorry) but one we won’t be going Hyper for. Yeah, sorry.
