Coyoty eats a shrimpy chip.







Prawn Chips (Original Flavor) Prawn Chips (Original Flavor)

Prawn chips from Hong Kong Market in West Haven, CT. The front says "MADE WITH FRESH PRAWN". The ingredients include tapioca flour, palm oil, prawn flavor, fish meat, white sugar, and salt.  Sounds yummy.

Another package I need scissors to open.  I've never encountered a chip bag that was so hard to open before.

I'm glad they told me it has prawn flavor, because it's barely noticible.  The chips are puffed crisps, and I don't see where the fish meat comes in, unless they mean fish fat, because they're a bit greasy.  They do seem a bit like pork rinds, so maybe they're fish rinds.

Photos from Wally Wabbit's 6/17 furmeet

I can't improve on wally_wabbit's LiveJournal report on the meet, except to offer these odd photos taken at Savin Beach in West Haven, CT.

First live bait vending machine I've seen, across the street from the beach.

Sign at the beach. Once they catch a wild animal on the beach, how do they collect the fine?

Coyoty eats an umbrella cookie.







Umbrella Cookies Umbrella Cookies

Spiral black sesame cookies from Hong Kong Market in West Haven, CT.

Yet another impregnable package.  Maybe people get hungry again an hour after eating Chinese food because they work so hard trying to open the packages.

They're a little firmer than most cookies, like kettle potato chips, but still tasty.  The sesame is subtle, and there's a hint of amaretto flavor.

They don't dunk very well.  I've been holding them under in my coffee for long periods and they don't get any softer.
