So as I reported earlier, I bought a bag of a peculiar hangover cure-turned-snack-food-concoction from my local conbini (short for convenience store, don’t you know?). Today, well technically yesterday since it’s currently two in the morning, I finally got around to tasting it. Anyways, the video of me actively tasting it is as follows:
So after the relative high of the warm and rich Hokkaido Potato Buns, I was met with a resounding meh from the hangover crisps. They weren’t bad per se but they weren’t all that awesome really, pretty much just weird Cheetos with an aftertaste and not much of the promised tandoori chicken flavor.
Now is this snack effective in warding off alcohol-induced pain? I don’t know… Can plain Cheetos cure a hangover? If they can, then the answer is probably yes. If not, well…
Anyways, I’ve got one other food item lined up for Stephen Eats Weird(ish) Food then I’ve either got to start looking for more stuff or simply wait for the next cycle of fresh funky flavors out of the Japanese food conglomerates. (Japanese convenience stores usually rotate their special flavors of items every month or so but it usually seems like a day.) If any of you, my faithful readers, have any suggestions for stuff I should eat or questions about Japan in general (“Will Fukushima radiation give you wings?”), hit me up in the comments section here or on youtube or you can reach me on Twitter @STEPHEN TETSU. Things will only get better if you guys pitch in because I sure as hell don’t have the talent of skills to make this crap any good.
PS Ukon no Chikara is meant to be ingested before the night of drinking so that the turmeric (the main ingredient in the magic elixir) can kick in before the booze wreaks havoc on your insides. I’m assuming that the situation is the same with the corn snacks as well.
