In Bali, I spotted milk sodas, which just did not sound appetizing to me. For some reason, I assumed that they were carbonated, but I now see that it says “cultured milk drink,” not “carbonated milk drink.” Granted, to me the word “soda” still implies carbonation. I normally love carbonation – I drink sparkling water like I’m a dehydrated European camel – but I don’t think I would want to drink carbonated, flavored milk. It sounded too disgusting to try, but now I’m wishing I had, just to know what it was like.
In Thailand, I found French Salad Flavored Chips. I really loved the packaging – if you look closely there’s an Eiffel Tower on the far right of the package. I get that the Eiffel Tower is to symbolize the French part of the chips. I’m just not sure what the smiling Asian guy is supposed to symbolize….
