Things that shouldn’t typically be green.

Yet another interesting find at the supermarket.

I was always told not to eat bread that had gone green.  But here, they sell it at the supermarket pre-greened.



It says on the label "Kojak Bread", but Google didn't yield any information as to what that might be.  But by going through the ingredients list, I think it might be bread containing pandan.

It took me a little while to work up the courage to try it, and it was one of those strange foods that I felt really ambivalent about.  I didn't hate it, but didn't like it.  It doesn't have any sort of strong flavour at all, but the colour freaks me out big time.  And it smells a bit funny.  It has a slight sweetness, but all bread in Indonesia seems to have a slight sweetness.  Yet you can't buy my favourite sweet Asian bread of all, BBQ Pork Buns, because the majority Muslim population here aren't keen enough on pork for the bakeries to churn out those goodies.

I was umming about whether I should try it with vegemite, but I don't know if I can go there… it just seems so unnatural.

Remembering things that are green that shouldn't be, does anyone remember that tomato sauce/ketchup they were selling in the late 90s that was bright green?  It looked like you were squirting baby diarrhea on to your food.

I didn't like that either.

Green food is good, but only when it's supposed to be green.  I don't like confusing green of an unknown origin.
