Sweet Viet


I grabbed a small packet of “Brown Candy” (‘Sucre en Roche Jaune’) to try, from one of the local Viet-style supermarket-lets.

The ingredient list says “SUGAR CANE, WATER” so I thought to myself, “Yeah, yeah, right!” — but upon breaking the sucker open (literally) & tasting it, I’m afraid it was indeed serious. Crunch, crunch.

As it turns out, mine host may indeed need a sugar rush in the course of cycling to work tomorrow AM, so it’s tactically not a dead loss.

I've had sugar cane before, and it's quite nice. Don't eat the cane -- just suck on it.
