The World in Chips
Bamba – Israel
Bamba have officially gone mainstream — a Trader Joe’s branded version can officially be found in their stores in the United States. For Israelis, nothing will replace the original — light corn puffs coated in deliciously salty peanut butter. Bamba makes up a whopping 25 percent of the snack market in Israel, and there’s even a belief that the extensive consumption of Bamba helped limit peanut allergies within the country. Bamba are available in the original flavor, or filled with chocolate, halva, or more peanut butter. They’re the perfect combination of sweet, salty, and crunchy.
