Asian Snack Attack: Towfu Cake

Asian Snack Attack is our ongoing series where we weed out the good from the bad in the wild and wooly world of newfangled Asian snacks.

Asian Snack: Towfu Cake

Manufacturer: Te Chang Food Processing Co., Ltd.

Country of Origin: Taiwan

Pre-Consumption Expectations: Nervous. I've never seen tofu spelled like this and all of the reassurances of "Hi-Quality" make me a little uneasy, despite the fact that the ingredients seem innocuous. They look like Japanese pickled ginger. They are an unnatural, magenta hue.

Texture: Sticky little bits welded together. Moist.

Taste: Cherry-flavored, with the tenuousness of red beet. A bit cardboard-y and sweet. The smell is more promising than the actual flavor.

Quotes from the Snack Panel: "Like faux jerky."

Stars: 2 out of 5. PASS.
