Sajonara Chocolate Bar
Origin: Fresh Valley grocery store; Hamtramck, MI; 2001
| One of the
nice things about Hamtramck is that youre never too far from a
Mom-and-Pop grocery that sells imported European chocolate. Unfortunately,
its mostly from Eastern Europe.
Dont get me wrong, I'm sure there's some great candy out there in the Balkans, but most of what I've sampled tastes like flavorless wax. Sajonara, from Bosnia, is no exception. As an added bonus, it's got rice in it. Not the Rice Krispies- type stuff of a Nestlé Crunch bar, either. It's got whole pieces of puffed rice. (You know — those dense styrofoam things.)
The rice explains the Japanese theme, though why they chose to call it good bye is anyones guess.
Incidentally, this has to be the most beautifully designed candy bar wrapper Ive ever seen.
