Next up is Ricanelas by Gamesa. Very similar to graham crackers, but again, not as sweet and a bit crispier. Sugar crystals are sprinkled on top and they have a very strong cinnamon taste. Think Red Hots but not quite as intense. Instead of cinnamon flavor it looks as though the cinnamon is grated from a whole cinnamon stick and sprinkled on top of the cracker. Ricanelas are great paired with a cup of herbal tea.
Also, cantaloupe is for sale, $1.99 each. I tried a sample and it was delicious. Does this mean spring is here?
That just about wraps up todays trip but I want to leave you with a picture from a couple weeks ago. It was Saturday afternoon and I stopped in for a quick trip. I was in the seafood area and noticed one of the chefs placed a fresh platter of some type of sandwich wraps. This immediately caught my attention and I walked over to get more information. I asked if the wraps were free and conversed with the chef for a bit. It was a breakfast burrito made with chorizo sausage, sorano peppers, cheese and a few other ingredients which have escaped my memory. By far the BEST breakfast burrito I have ever tasted. Newport KMP employs extremely skilled culinary artists. I would pay good money for this dish in a restaurant. Behold!
