Score: 5.9/10

I was wandering around a Chinese supermarket looking for a snack when I saw this and decided to give it a try. I’ve had similarly packaged snacks before and they are freaking spicy. This was as spicy as I expected.

So inside the packaging pictured above are lots of little packages like the one below.


Each bit of veggie meat is packaged in one of these things, so you don’t have to eat all of it at once if you don’t want to. Given how packed with hot oil each package is filled with, you don’t want to eat more than one of these at a time.

The snack itself is gluten I think. After taking it out of the package… it looks like crap. But it’s drenched in hot oil, which makes most things taste better. It’s pretty spicy, but not psychotic and the spice goes away pretty fast.

Overall, this wasn’t a great purchase. It’s spicy tofu in small packages. I’m trying to think who would enjoy this. Maybe vegans who like spicy stuff?
