Is it me or is there something magical about watching Drew eat and give his opinion on snacks.

Absolutely! They were my favourite parts in the Icelandic video too.

@perkunas: It's an Israel Post package, which means it has both Hebrew and Arabic labelling on it, since those are both our official languages.

@dagan Master of Dimensions? Where did you get it from? I could be mistaken, but I think I got a copy of it from Wiz way back in the day.

@dagan: You, my friend, are a horrible human being. I wouldn't wish Mint Crystal on my worst enemy.

Also, I resent you for getting Israeli snacks to them before I could.

@branthog: How is eating dog different from eating any other animal?

It isn't, it's just a "problem" because people in first-world countries don't like the idea of eating their pets.

I think Drew must have been a goat in a former life, that fella will eat anything :D

Yeah, I gotta be honest though . . . as much as I really do like Drew, the whole dog-eating thing sort of really puts me off the Drew train, (sorry to say), if it was done knowingly. That is just really messed up. (Though, I don't remember if it was knowingly or after the fact - it has been a while).

I'm pretty sure he are the dog knowingly, but it's difficult to hold it against him, surely?

It's like this - He was in North Korea. A country that eats dogs. Has been eating dogs for a long time, and will continue to eat dogs. If Drew had passed up on eating dog, it's not like the dog he *would* have eaten would have remained whole and set free to live on a farm in happy contentment for the rest of its life.

Edelkakaous = high quality chocolate? Finest chocolate? Someone with better German skills translate that one.

Either way, looks good. I love dark chocolate.

Oh wow, doobonim (the first snack shown in the thumbnail), Crystal (the soda drink, like he said, it tastes like bleach) whoever sent these tried to poison you guys.

The stuff from the Israeli dude are not bad, most of the snacks there are considered to be quite good as a local snack (unlike something that is imported like Pringles).

Though to be honest, the only thing that I am sure that he sent as a joke, is the Crystal drinks, because they are horrendously awful to drink, as in texture and taste.

Nice to see some stuff from Israel (I am from there as well). Also the vanilla candy that Drew ate is called Halva which can be made by Sesame have have quite a lot of different flavors and ingredients like Chocolate, Nugget, Pistachio and more, it's really good :)

That chocolate is high cocoa chocolate, the cocoa ratios are even listed on the packaging. Of course it would be more fun if those were alcohol ratios.

Haha, you guys just looked like animals. All on the ground scrounging food, lifting it up and looking at it; immediately stuffing it in your mouths. Made me laugh so hard.

You think you've "seen something..." You suppose it might be time to "say something."

STOP.

When your gut's telling you "dirty bomb," check the label for "Giant Bomb!"

Maybe next time everyone should compartmentalize each item in a zip lock bag.

I love Giant Bomb, but I'm not sure even THEY are cool enough for those bears on the package. That one bear just don't care.

@lazyaza: At first it looked liked they tried to detonate the box. I mean you know the US and a strange box from Israel that says 'Giant Bomb' on it.

That box was annihilated. Hahah exact reason I'm afraid to ever send drinks to the guys. Really should just send a box of vegemite, probably one person in their entire building who would even eat it XD

Bisli and Bamba are the BEST. Imagine cheetos that taste like peanut butter instead of cheese and that's Bamba. Bisli is like non-shitty chex mix. Israel has some crazy-awesome snack food, it's too bad the box got slightly ruined in the mail.

What was going on on the white board behind them?

Avatar image for herbiebug
Edited By HerbieBug

I think maybe we need to write up a Giantbomb specific FAQ on shipping beverages. How to prevent breakage. How to prevent spillage. How to seal beverage bottles in such a way that, if they do become compromised, they will not foul the rest of the box.

Ziplock bags and vacuum packs are your friends.

edit---- Hey Brad, if you're looking for healthy snacks, give roasted chickpeas a try. Preferably homemade. The store bought ones are overpriced and poorly seasoned.

1 can unsalted chickpeas, strain and rinse thoroughly

Pour into clean bowl. Add 1 tablespoon oil. Add seasoning to preferred taste. Salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, sriracha sauce, soy sauce, onions, garlic, etc. all work fine. Chickpeas are fairly bland by themselves so you can season them with pretty much anything you'd like.

Place a sheet of foil on to a cookie sheet. Spread chickpeas in single layer on foil. Bake at 425 for 15 minutes, remove and shake the pan, bake for another 15 minutes. Let cool and serve at room temperature.

Yum.

One is the sixth chapter in the Splinter Cell franchise and one is a foreign treat. Yeah, I think I would be more excited by the latter too.

Even after all these mailbags people still don't know how to properly ship liquids haha

The time is now for a PSA on proper packaging techniques.

I thought to myself, "what is the worst fucking thing I could send soda and energy drink aficionado Jeff Gerstmann". The answer was obvious.

sucks about the Exotic Crystal, but I'm kind of happy that the mint one survived. It's basically like drinking carbonated ammonia.

Although bamba and bisli are kinda edible, sort of like the official Israeli snacks over here in Israel.

Don't OPEN IT! Its probably racist! Its from Israel!

Israel mail bombs people? I don't understand the joke.

The joke is that he is not talking about the German packet. Because racist.

The intended joke was people confuse Israel as being similar to countries like Pakistan or Syria even though they are mainly Jewish.

I'm sorry then.

It was a pretty open ended comment. I just didn't want anyone to think I was a terrible person.

I'm sorry too

More proof that they should just either really better package the liquids (thinking the bottle size was more the issue) or stick with tougher glass bottles well wrapped, rest of this looks quite interesting.
