This is more of an old school snack. But something that I hadn't tried before, despite having seen it in asian shops all my life. Sugar coated tamarind is a strange and interesting combination - it's hot (the tamarind is a spicy kick), sour and sweet all at the same time. Just like Thai food! Cause that's where it's from. It makes me wince, but not alcohol-wince. It's more of a kick-you-awake kind of wince. It could be just the thing to take to those long boring meetings...
Sour, sweet and hot - can you handle it or not?
