Snacks: What do people enjoy?

Many people enjoy snacks between meals, either while at work or after school when they return home. However, the snacks people each can vary widely from culture to culture or family to family. While some people think of potato chips as a snack, I really enjoyed Edamae, or boiled soybeans while I was in Japan. Basically, you boil the beans with the shell in salt and then serve. At that point, you just remove the pod, or outside shell, and enjoy. So, what about you? Share any unique or interesting snacks that people eat where you live. Randall

In Taiwan, there are all kind of street vendors server delicious food as snack. The one I love most is called "Lu-Way." They boil food such as chicken legs, tofu, vegetables with a mixed soup which contains several seasoning to make it smelling good. Every vendors have their secrete recipes for the soup. It's quite popular in Taiwan.

I'm really glad to hear you like Japanese edamame, Randall, because I'm Japanese. I usually have edamame with beer. That combination is nice! When I lived in the U.S. until last summer, I liked corn chips and chocolate covered dry fruits. I still miss them! Now I sometimes have "Okaki" which is a kind of rice crackers. On around New year's day we have "Omochi" which made from sticky rice. We have it with soysauce and seaweed or soy powder and sugar. I'm looking forward it!

I like to eat fruits between meals. I also drink a lot of fruit juice. I know there should be some balance between water and fruit juice, but I'd rather drink fruit juice than water.

Chicken steak is popular with many people here. It is a little like fried chicken, but it seldom has any bones. Every vendors have their own seasonings to make their chicken steak taste better.

In Taiwan, one of famous snacks is the red bean cake which is a crispy brown shelf with mashed sweet red bean. Also, many Taiwanese including me like stinky Tofu as a snack. Unfortunately, lots of Westerns don't enjoy sweet red bean and stinky tofu. They think red bean shouldn't be cooked into sweet one. Also, they are confused about why people can eat stinky food. Actually, you won't smell the odor while you eating; I especially love the preserved vegetables as the side dish with stinky tofu. Eating the tofu with the sour and sweet preserved vegetable is one of the pleasures in the lifetime.

The night markets of Taiwan are very famous. In night markets, there are many foods you can eat as snacks, such as fried chicken, salt-soaked chicken, sausage, and other foods. All of them are very delicous and not expensive. If you go to Taiwan for tourism someday, you can't miss it.

Usually I don’t eat snacks between meals, either while at work or back home because I don’t like brush my teeth many times. But if I have to work extra hours I usually eat a small sandwich or a piece of cake.

However popular snacks in my country (Peru) are potato chips, “camote” chips (sweet potato), “chifles” (fried banana), etc.

In my opinion,children should eat fruit and vegetables. The kids would be healthy. If the parents eat healthy food, the children will eat healthy food too because the kids will follow their example.
Most kids in Qatar like chocolate for snacks but this is unhealthy food.
My favourite snack is fruit salad because there are many kinds of fruit and they contain vitamins.
