Do you know this food?
I was fascinated upon seeing a box of these for sale in the supermarket and bought them on impulse, having never seen anything like it in the market before. At home, after opening the box I wasn’t sure if they would be good to eat.
This one looks more like a little octopus than candy or fruit. But it is both. It is a sugar soaked dried hibiscus flower and although a bit chewy it is both tasty and fun to eat. Despite being sweetened these have quite a bit of nutrition. I guess that qualifies them as vitamin candy!
Soon we will probably see them covered with chocolate. Does that sound good to you?
