Peanut soup with milk

Whenever we head over to the Vietnamese market, I like to get something I’ve never eaten before.

Peanut Soup with Milk (in the refrigerated beverages section)

I’ll be honest. I picked this primarily because of the folding spoon it came packed with.

I can’t wait to get into this.

Oh boy. Oh boy!

Snaps into place. Surprisingly sturdy.

Oh geez. What have I done?

Feels like water and milk with peanuts in it. Smells like nothing with a hint of peanuts. Makes a really great “slursh plop slurshy ploorg glub” noise when you pour it out.

Ignore the apprehensive expression. Not bad. Not bad at all. Sweet. Like horchata with peanuts in it.
Only one problem, the peanuts are squishy. Like cooked black beans. Mushy.

Fair enough. I should have read that before. It might have been much less frightening.

      The soup basically tastes like sugar water with little chunks of stuff in it (if you didn’t know what it was) :V

    I’m surprised that they even put an expiration date on something so… unique. Reminds me of the first time I ate boiled peanuts (a southern delicacy, or so they say). Peanuts are supposed to crunch, not mush.

    Congrats on your fresh press (pillow cartoon…how original!)

    Most of strange things I’ve
    eaten have been my own
    failed culinary experentments.
    Some foods seem like they
    would be good together but –
    I rest my case.

    Thanks for sharing your experience. I bought one yesterday when I went shopping at Chinatown. I was simply curious as in my country of Ghana we make peanut soup so was curious to see what it is and tastes. I just opened and Oh mine, what is this? Do I have to cook it? Confused! Hence my appearance on your blog.
