They were there near the register, calling me like the siren’s song one evening at checkout.
Clear plastic packages of homemade snacks.
There was dried pineapple. Sesame sticks. Snack mix. Dried peas.
And, drum roll please, dried okra.
Holy, beautiful bite of deliciousness, Batman!
While I love all of Brookshire’s Snack Packs, I really, really love the dried okra. I guess they dehydrate it. Or bake it until its crisp. Or both. These little nuggets of happiness are crunchy, crispy and salty, all of my favorite things.
The okra is dried whole, so you can grab a piece just as you would a chip or a cheese puff. I can (and do) eat the whole snack container by myself at one sitting.
There are so many different snack packs at Brookshire’s. If dried okra isn’t your thing, try the dried mango or salty, crunchy peas.
Whatever you choose, you can’t go wrong!
