Food in Hungary
-Bread tastes fine, but is rarely sweet. It seems sugar isn’t added to the bread pastries. We’ve tried chocolate and egg which in my opinion could have used some sugar, but perhaps it’s healthier this way.
-Apple juice tastes like a green apple. It has a tangy tarty taste and isn’t overly sweet.
According to BreAnna: “If you were to eat a green apple lollipop,it tastes just like that.”
-Milk tastes different, although neither I nor BreAnna can describe it well. I suppose different cows eating different grass in a different country could just potentially produce different milk. But I could be thinking a little too deeply.
-Water is sold in 1.5 liter bottles for less than $1. Essentially, water is cheap; America rips us off.
-Chocolate is AMAZING.
-Hungarian paprika comes in sweet and spicy. We have not yet purchased or investigated the uses of sweet paprika.
-You can’t expect to find the same food items in Hungarian stores that you find at home. (We have yet to see oatmeal, peanut butter, muffin mix, refried beans, or pop tarts). However, it’s only been 2 weeks, so perhaps they’re floating around somewhere.
-Words on food packages are * gasp * in HUNGARIAN!
