Spanish Snacks Review in Barcelona, Spain
In search of Spain's more unusual snacks and drinks, I ventured deep into a local supermarket in Barcelona, uncovering some unique and unexpected culinary finds.
My mom and I embarked on a unique culinary adventure in the Barri Gothic district of Barcelona, starting our quest at SuperServis, a local store known for its intriguing selection of foods. Our mission was to discover and review some of the distinctive products this vibrant city had to offer, and we returned to our rented apartment laden with our finds.
The first item we sampled was a range of candies that we found to be decent, accompanied by a Spanish sausage that impressed us with its savory flavors. However, our food exploration took an unexpected turn when we tried the Torres Black Truffle chips. These chips, with their peculiar and somewhat overwhelming flavor, quickly became the least likely snack I would ever consider purchasing again.
Next on our tasting agenda were the beverages. The Bitter Kas proved to be an intense experience. Imagine a tonic water amplified tenfold in bitterness – it was certainly not for the faint of heart. However, the Estrella Damm beer came to the rescue, offering a refreshing and familiar taste that helped balance the intense flavors of the Bitter Kas.
Reflecting on our culinary journey in Barcelona, I realized that the city's products have a unique character. They may not always align with everyone's palate, but they undoubtedly provide an authentic taste of the local cuisine and culture.
In conclusion, while our tasting experience in Barcelona had its highs and lows, it was a fascinating exploration of the city's diverse culinary offerings. The adventure highlighted that Barcelona's food scene, much like the city itself, is a mix of the traditional and the unexpected.
