Train Snacks, Shanghai

Wow, I'm so glad there's a highspeed (averaging almost 90mph) train to Hangzhou now. Sure beats the old one which took abit too long to get there. Anyway, since I was rushing for the train, I didn't have time for a proper breakfast and hence decided to get some snacks on board. This is a pack of Glico Pretz pizza sticks. Nothing really different from the "Made in Japan" ones, salty and crunchy they were.

Having being always intrigued by these pre-packed sausages that I see some of the other commuters tucking into, I decided to give in to curiosity and picked one up.

Boy did curiosity kill this cat. This was pretty bad, it wasn't soft and mushy but neither did it taste meaty. I don't know how they bulked this up, it tasted like cardboard, then again, it could have been cardboard!
