Squishy, spicy, delicious ginger candies. First discovered at a sea salt shop in Ubud whilst wandering around with JBC. Bought out store’s entire stock. Brought back to Jakarta, re-stocked by Rus. Purchased in bulk with parents for trip gifts. Half eaten before plane landed in the US.

Available on Amazon? Yes. As good when they come in a box from a warehouse in Iowa than when they’re carried around in the bottom a backpack as one moseys about Bali? No.

I’ve been hoarding a pack in my desk. First American Lit test = a Ting Ting Jahe event.
