Interesting food finds in Oregon

For the last 10 days, I was roadtripping around Oregon.

Oregon has great food, lots of unique and weird items to find. Here are a few that I picked up!

What crazy marketing. I didn’t end up purchasing this, but found the bold packaging very interesting.

Based on the package, I was expecting more pili nuts than chocolate, so that was a bit disappointing, but overall, this product tastes great. I learned about Pili nuts about 15 years ago when my friend from the Philippenes brought me some. She thought they would be a great product in the US, I guess they are finally making their way over here.

Overall, this product tastes like good chocolate bar with nuts in it. Not sure it is worth the high price, but was tasty.

The Whole Bowl is a chain Portland, OR. They are also in Cincinnati, and Brooklyn. Amazing concept for a restaurant. They sell one thing, this bowl. You can remove things from it, if you want. It is basically like a taco bowl without the tortilla or chips. Really simple, really tasty and really filling. We had to wait about 20 minutes in line to order!
Stumptown is a well known local Portand coffee company. I liked the look of this and decided to try it. Cascara is the outer skin or husk of the coffee bean. I’m not sure how to describe the flavor of this. Sort of fruity and tart, but not a flavor I’ve had before. Slightly sweet with carbonation. I enjoyed it, but it would be an occasional thing for me. It isn’t clear to me if there is caffeine in there or not.
The red part is the cascara and the yellow part is the raw coffee bean that was inside.
Jun Kombucha is similar to regular kombucha except that honey is used instead of sugar. This product had a different flavor than traditional kombuchas, lighter and more subtle. I liked it quite a bit, although, if I’m honest, it was the cute bottle that really made me pick it up. šŸ™‚
