Each week I’m featuring snack products from different countries. After eating and reviewing each treat, I’ll create recipes inspired by them! Below are my thoughts and reactions.

 

EXPECTATION: Rice cake with hints of tomato and olive oil.

REALITY: Rice cake with tomato and olive oil seasoning, would taste even better with fresh mozzarella
