4x new discoveries for week 16
It has been known for some time: in addition to chocolate, the cocoa fruit can also be used to make fruit juice, which lends itself well to soft drinks. Very well indeed, because in fact the cocoa juice is a residual product that would otherwise simply flow into the ground. With Kumasi Sappi (without carbon dioxide) and Kumasi Gassi (with carbon dioxide) you can taste that soft drink in the Netherlands. The taste? Sweet, fruity, tropical and fresh. Also very tasty, in short.
Kumasi’s cocoa soft drinks are for sale at Albert Heijn and HEMA, look for them on the ‘special soda’ shelves.
2. Foam bitters
Whiskey sours, we love them. Yet we often find making them a hassle, especially because of those proteins (with which we always have a bit of a fight). Ms. Better’s Bitters Foamer changes that: in addition to 40% alcohol (so use them sparingly), these bitters also have the properties to provide your drink with a layer of foam. That’s handy.
The Ms Better’s Bitters Foamer costs €37.50 and is available through Drankdozijn and liquor stores such as Cane & Grain.
3. Candles with the smell of fried chicken
A bit crazy, but fun: these candles not only have the shape of a deep-fried drumstick, they also promise to spread the same aroma. Whether you should want that in your house or not is up to us, although we know plenty of fried chicken fans who would like to take on that experiment.
The fried chicken candles are sold per 3 and can be ordered through this webshop.
4. Candy vegetable radish mix
Cruditélovers had probably spotted them for a while: Albert Heijn now has a great radish mix with white tip, purple and red radishes. That’s nice, because you wouldn’t buy purple and white radishes separately. Culy’s idea: serve the radishes with the drink with our whipped brown butter. You won’t hear anyone complain about that.
The Candy vegetable radish mix is for sale at Albert Heijn.
