I went to the Russian district near
with some family friends from Russia.
I saw that many of the grocery stores I visited had a large selection of dried
fish in packages. My friends told me that they were a snack that most Russians
and Ukrainians ate with beer or alcohol. They said that most bars in Russia offered these fish as drinking snacks
like bars in America
offer pretzels or nuts. They are made from many kinds of fish. The most popular
type of fish is Vobla, also known as the Caspian Roach fish. The fish are
salted and dried. The package I purchased is labeled “Gold Fish” with the
ingredient “Bigeyes Snapper”. I saved my packet of fish for the Super Bowl. They
taste like a very salty fish bubblegum.
