My Favorite Childhood Snack: Silk Tofu in a Tube

Ever since I was a kid, I loved eating silk tofu. It had to be the kind that came in a tube. I didn’t like the fried one because I thought it tasted like bad breath. Whenever I wanted silk tofu, I’d say to my mom, Mama, please buy me tsup tsup. I called it tsup tsup because of the way I ate it. After snipping off the top of the tube, I sucked out the tofu by slurping it up to the top of the tube.

I guess when you’re a kid, you still miss sucking on a bottle of milk, but you can’t do that because you’re not a baby anymore. Maybe the smooth texture like the tofu in taho and white color reminded me of milk too, but of course it’s not exactly like milk because it tastes bland, and it has a chunky but breakable consistency.

  1. I was a strange kid in the USA when it came to snacks. Of course, I enjoyed candy and other sweets but I had two favorite snacks. One was Slim Jim. A Slim Jim was, and still is, a dried beef stick that is a little salty in taste. One beef stick to a pack and it cost 15 cents when I was a kid.

    The other snack I enjoyed as a kid was pickled pigs feet! Hormel was the brand. The pigs feet are cut up into small pieces and pickled in vinegar and other spices. Hormel Pickled Pigs Feet are sold in small or large jars.

    As an adult, one of my favorite snacks is cheese. I can buy several excellent cheeses at SM Supermarket and I like the cheese from UK best. Red Leicester and Seriously Cheddar Cheese are the two I like best. Both are made in UK by McLelland. The cost is P200 for a 200 gram package. Magnolia Cheezee Spread is also great on Fita Crackers. Both are products of the Philippines.
