Welcome to Discoveries at the Jungle, where each month we’ll take a look at some of the most interesting, flavorful and sometimes bizarre international items Jungle Jim’s has to offer. This month, we’re featuring snacks from around the world! Last month we explored the world of coffee, so if you missed those posts, make sure you go back and give them a read.
Jungle Jim’s International Market prides ourselves on bringing you the best variety of food from all over the globe, right here in your backyard. And what better food to indulge yourself with than some international snacks?
