Actually I think the smell of roasting chestnuts is better than the taste. But I have Chinese ancestry so I see chestnut snacks also.


Chestnuts roasting !! okay thanks, then you think it's sweet?

English-speaking people will know this song very well - "The Christmas Song" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Christmas_Song) whose first line is "Chestnuts roasting on an open fire..."


Sweet potatos make you fart?? Thanks for the warning, Mari-san! ;) I will remember to avoid sweet potato snacks. Does miso have the same effect? Just a cultural question for ya:

In North America, many folks keep matches in the bathroom. When you make a big stink, you light a match or two and the smell magically disappears - you smell burnt match instead of nasty crap. Do folks in Japan use matches as bathroom air fresheners?

Actually, roasted chestnuts are a traditional Christmas treat. At Christmas time in New York City, street vendors sell them from their carts. The delicious smell always brings back memories of going in to NYC as a kid with my family to go see the big store's Christmas window displays.


"... sweet potates were lonely snack, because it makes farts"

Pure Genius! You are the best, Mari! :-)

some americans just simply have no taste... or they have masacred their tastebuds with burger-rpizza-bacon hi-sodium extravaganca...
met a couple from boston who said they were craving for a genuine italian pizza (no actually the american italian pizza) instead of 京食 which in their opinion was tasteless too...
