Talk About An Olympics Controversy!
Forget the actual sporting event – the big story at Tokyo’s Olympic Games involves foreign Reporters who showed up to cover the games – and discovered some very uniquely Japanese sandwiches!
Bite Into The “Peanut Cream Sandwich!”
Talk about culture shock! For a world raised on a traditional peanut butter and jelly sandwich – with crust – this has turned their world upside down!
You see, as SoraNews24.com reports:
“Visiting media from overseas covering the Tokyo Olympics recently received an introduction to the Japanese lunch pack, after they were offered for free to journalists at the press centre.sandwiches, which are sometimes filled with fruit and cream, and other times, packed in bags with their crusts cut off, in what’s known as “lunch packs“.
Social Media was immediately inundated with pictures of the unusual snack offerings for the Reporters, but as SoraNews24 reports, there were also many options for food beyond these offerings. They go on to report that these are traditionally considered snacks in Japan, not a main meal – and they were being offered for free!
“Strawberry Jam & Margarine” Anyone?
One International Reporter shared this picture showing her two choices that day…and they are certainly unique food mashups to be sure.
However, I have been to Tokyo 5 times, and am well aware of how they serve these snacks – and no one said they weren’t delicious, just UNUSUAL!
Thanks as always to SoraNews24 for their reporting of all things cool in Asia and Japan…see their entire reporting on the topic here:
I love Japanese food, and have a long history eating their unique sandwiches…but perhaps the uninitiated might balk at a “Strawberry Jam & Margarine” mashup…that said, would you try this mashup from China?
It’s an “Oreo-topped Spamwich”!
It’s real, and I say why not! That looks like a thin layer of Mayonnaise on top as well, so count me in!
