Shkedei Marak- Yummy!

This weekend, you are all invited to go to your nearest grocery store or Supermarket (before Shabbat enters, of course,) and purchase a delicious Israeli creation (in case they sell it.) Yes,  turns out there are foods invented by Israelis:

Bamba - peanut butter-flavored snack which has been manufactured by the Osem corporation since 1966. Bamba is the most common and most popular Israeli snack. 

Limonana - a type of lemonade made from freshly-squeezed lemon juice and mint, created in the early 1990s. The taste is even better when the Limonana is home made. 

Ptitim - wheat-based baked pasta. It is ball-shaped and small, and best made when you let is steam with some olive oil and chopped onion. 

Shkedei marak - small yellow crisp crouton squares used as a soup accompaniment. Be carefull, it is addictive!
