On a recent trip to the Spice Center in Manchester, I picked up a couple fun, crazy inexpensive things. The highlights were Indian ramen and Indian soda.
Indian ramen is just what it sounds like: ramen, only Indian flavors instead of Asian ones. I chose this 'masala' flavored one because of the line on the packaging: "Now with Taste Bhi and Health Bhi." Because, you know, we all need our daily Bhi.
I really can't say it tasted like any of those things. Not as strongly flavored as Moxie, it still had that twang, that certain something that I like in my carbonated beverages.
The taste is pretty indescribable. A bit bitter and sour, the manufacturer's website says "Sosyo is a cider-type fruit type drink made of a heady apple and grape cocktail that packs quite a punch"
The best part about the Spice Center is that everything is so dang inexpensive that there's no real risk in buying things. Everything I've purchased has been successful, each time I go I get a little more adventurous.
Of course, its all the polar opposite of eating locally. Moderation in all things except gluttony.
