In Love with Turkish Food
So the first morning I wake up to one of my kids’ favorite things: Turkish cocoa puffs. They are different than American cocoa nasties, as they have much less sugar. This is true of most Turkish snack foods: better ingredients, less salt, less sugar, more taste. I have a friend who works for one of the major chocolate/snack food companies here, and he’s confirmed that the American market demands more sweetness than the Turkish market.
It being Ramadan, and eating on the street during the day is not OK, I went out to a small shop and bought every kind of junk food I wanted. Have to be aware of those around me who are fasting, which also means no drinking or smoking.
