Food Gambling # 2












Are you ready for the next round of Food Gambling? By now I’m sure you know, that it’s not always safe to judge a snack by its wrapping. However, that is exactly what I want you to do. Look at this Latvian snack and give me your best bet as to what it might contain. Here are your options:

Food Gambling

So, I haven’t exactly been a regular at this joint recently and I’m very sorry about that. As a way of apologising, I’ve decided to introduce a new game on Velbekomme. It’s called, yes you’ve guessed it, Food Gambling! Part of the reason for my absence is a visit I made recently to the capital of Latvia: Riga. There I had a great old time, especially the part where I tried to guess what I put in my hamper at the local supermarket. Because as you might know, Latvian isn’t exactly my second language. That’s why I am asking you to join in on my quest for goodies by guessing what this funny looking wrapper is hiding from the naked eye… First, take a good look at the picture for any hints, then exercise your right to vote below and finally, click the “read full post” thing to see the results. Cheerio!

What kind of snack is this?

New York – Man, Did I Take a Bite Out of That Apple!

Yes yes yes, it’s been ages since I went to New York but it took me some serious editing to cut my food experiences from one whole greedy week of eating into just one post. Suffice it to say that the pleasures of the palate were never-ending in that city and we pretty much tasted everything in sight. I was very surprised at the quality of the food – was afraid there would be sugar and grease all over the place (Just kidding there. Having read a LOT of “The Girl Who Ate Everything” my expectations were sky high and still, I was surprised). So here are a couple of the highlights:

Snacking My Way Through London

It took me quite a while to digest my London experience (get it? “digest” as in eat, as in “Snacking my way through London”? Eigh? Okay, I’ll leave you alone), but finally I’m done with the last crumbs from high tea, that leftover slab of pickled ginger from some pretty decent sushi and an early bakery breakfast. Let me break it down for you:
