My sons learned that from me. I began doing it during my second pregnancy when even saltine crackers were not plain enough for my level of nausea.
Yes, it's mind bogglingly messy.
(Or, maybe being a teenager starting high school at the time makes my assessment biased).
Mivina. I was very excited to tell my US friends about The Very Ukrainian product they've all been missing out on (with a very Ukrainian brand name).
Until my grad school friend told me that it literally means Noodles From Vietnam in Vietnamese.
Turns out, Mivina was indeed created in Ukraine — and made its creator the richest person in Vietnam .
Deservedly so, I say.
I thought I figured out some amazing snack when I started eating ramen straight out of the pack. My brother and I would mix it with microwave popcorn (two unhealthy snacks cancel each other out, right?)
So it came as a shock when my cousin from Korea came to visit and wasn't impressed with our ramen snacks.
"Doesn't everyone do this?"
Turned out my Half-Korean friends were doing the same thing (we were all Army brats). They were equally surprised to find others doing it.
