Are you as excited as I am?

For those who haven't tried bamba, it's sort of like puffy cheetoes, but peanut butter flavored rather than cheese flavored. You eat the first one and think, "I'm not sure I like this." The second one, "This is sort of odd." But by the third one you're obsessed.

These ones have hazelnut-chocolate filling, and they're really really good. And vegan, of course.

Ooooh! I've tried and liked the peanut ones. Those look great! I hope we get them over here soon.

Best bet would probably be a kosher store, I think.

I found something like that in the Czech Republic! I think they were a different brand, though. They were definitely weird, but I'm pretty sure I ate the whole bag. I've never seen them in the US.

I got them at the little tiny kosher section of the standard grocery store here (HEB). Any store with a decent kosher section will probably have at least regular bamba.

I've passed up the regular ones because they don't sound appealing at all, but I would totally try those just for the filling.

The only time I've had (or even seen) Bamba was when a Canadian PPKer sent me some in a swap (noisette... I think she is/was in Toronto, which doesn't help you one bit except that it means Bamba exists in Canada.)

I'm suddenly even more excited about going there at the end of the year!

I got them in Cesky Krumlov at a little store conveniently named "Supermarket." Heh.

Stocked up at the kosher deli and got sesame cream ones too! Can't decide which I like better.

Whoa, there's sesame cream filled ones, too? Dang, gotta find those. My favorites are the hazelnut and chocolate ones, so addicting! I love visiting my parents in NJ. They live in the land of Kosher Experience and many, many kosher supermarkets (macolets) and even a kosher health food store. Soooo many bad-for-you-but-super-yummy vegan by default kosher treats. My favorites include, but are not limited to those kit-kat type wafer cookies (chocolate covered or bare), chocolate covered rice cakes, chocolate everything, actually -especially white chocolate rice clusters, Klein's pistachio icecream, falafel flavored chips, and all types of candy, if you're into that. Junk food heaven.

The falafel flavored chips freak me out. I'm jealous about the white chocolate. For whatever reason, the kosher store here doesn't carry white chocolate or butterscotch chips.
