As some of you may know, I grew up and spent most of my life in Israel.
When I went to College in Florida, my mom used to send me care packages every once in a while, with all my favorite snacks from home.
As I was eating them, my friend look at me asking: "Hey, What is that thing you are eating over there??"
They look like this.
The two are very similar in taste but has some differences in shape and their crunchiness.
it made sense! Perhaps the "Kabukim" are originally from Japan?? and served as snacks at the traditional KABUKI Theater shows??
