My significant other’s parents

Right before the pandemic hit, my now-fiancé, a few friends, and I went to visit India. We stayed with his parents for awhile and were absolutely spoiled with home-made food, then went touring around the Golden Triangle. His parents packed a bunch of snacks for us, most of which I do not remember precisely, though I did enjoy Kurkure Masala Munch. These are exactly like Cheetos in format, just with a masala spice blend.

I do not know what “now tastier” on the packages means: perhaps more spice dust?

These corn chips are the definition of “just okay”. They’re basically giant corn flakes, but they have that distinctive corn-y flavor I often taste in Japanese snacks (Crown C Corn Chips are Korean). Almost as if someone added “essence of corn on the cob”. Anyway, these are fine, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to seek them out.

Two bags labeled "rice snack" with a pile of cubes stacked on a plate on the bags. Behind the bags are a pile of the individual rice snacks.
Fave!!

I bought these on a whim while checking out District H, which appears to be a subsidiary of H Mart. I had no idea what to expect based on the little cubes on the front of the package. These ended up being something like a blown-up version of a rice-based cereal, coated in a thin layer of powder that has a subtly sweet taste. These melt in your mouth, and I’m realizing from this whole snack journey that I seem to enjoy melt-in-your-mouth snacks where that is unexpected.
