Click pic to view comments - International sighting: World-wide wasabi round-up International sighting: World-wide wasabi round-up
Posted: 09:02 Sun 11-Jul-2010. Price: 3-3.50 Swiss Francs. Location: Migros supermarket, Interlaken, Switzerland.
Future posts should reassure readers that Zeddy didn't survive solely on horseradish-based snacks while in Switzerland, but there's no arguing with his main thesis on Dar-Vida Snacks Wasabi (bread pieces - pictured here): "Those crazy, crazy Swiss! They love their wasabi (and why not?)" Migros also stock their own-brand Wasabi Popcorn ("Hey, hey, hey! Now you are talking. Butterkist eat your heart out. Nice and fiery. Not what you expect from popcorn."), plus the intriguingly-branded Plan B Funky Chips Wasabi-Taste ("Mmmm! These were good! Pretty hot and tasty. Much better than Pringles' attempts and a lovely lurid green shade to boot.")

...Obviously the UK's slightly behind in this field, though Zeddy also located Golden Cross Party Mix Jalapeno and Sour Cream potato snacks (1 in Asda, Hamilton, Scotland), relating: "Back home and doing the 'big shop' on my return from hols. These were on special at the front of the shop. They are not hot like a jalapeno would be but still have the 'earthy' flavour the peppers have. Very moreish, with different shapes of potato snack within the packet." While first-time spotter "Seamaster" agreed with previous assessments of the Fiery Wasabi Pringles, spluttering: "Being utterly addicted to wasabi peas as the ne plus ultra of salty snacks, I emitted a whelp of girlish glee when I happened upon these in my local Tesco Metro. Sadly, they're absolutely vile. On this occasion I was quite able to pop and promptly stop. The bizarre ginger after-taste alone is enough to cause retching on an industrial scale. Be warned."

Comment: EEk... I hate hidden ginger. Like when you order in Wagamamas and they coat your meal in it!
