And, what exactly do you do with it?
I bought a package of Tiki because it said on the package it was a Swiss tradition. I thought it would be fun to try out another Swiss product.
I opened the package and found these little guys.
This is what was inside.
As an American, it reminded me of a SweeTart.
I popped it into my mouth not really knowing what to expect. At first, it wasn’t bad. Soon that changed. It started foaming and the taste was strong.
I figured perhaps it was a concentrate and not meant to be eaten but put into water for a drink.
The picture of the boy holding a glass of pink liquid on the package is what gave me this idea.
I gave the kids glasses with mineral water and dropped two squares of Tiki into each. The kids stirred it all up and drank it. Afterwards, they were begging for more.
If you are Swiss or have lived in Switzerland for a long time I know you are most likely on the floor rolling in laughter. I don’t blame you.
Because, after searching on the internet (by the way not a lot of info on Tiki) I found that it is meant to be eaten and not put into a drink.
Why is the boy shown holding up a drink? Can someone explain this to me?
Today, I let the kids try eating it and they liked it.
Kids like anything sweet and foam is a bonus!
Read Swissmiss for the info I found on Tiki. In comments is where I was enlightened on how to properly enjoy TIKI. The post explains that the packaging is in celebration of Tiki’s 60 year anniversary. It was the original packaging. If you go to tiki.ch you can see the modern version.
