I don’t remember where I came across Dragon’s Breath from — but I’m gonna assume Instagram as that’s where I come across 90% of my food discoveries. As far as I know though there were only primarily places in SoCal to get this (as it seems like that’s suddenly the hub for getting the newest types of snacks, lucky them!) so when I saw a kiosk at the mall here selling them on Black Friday I didn’t waste much time picking one up.
It was actually really hard to snap a photo of the smoke coming off of it! And sadly that effect didn’t last too long.
They’re dumped into I believe Nitrogen and flash frozen. So touching one is like touching a frozen pole, stuff like that freaks me out so I used the pokey stick. My boyfriend however didn’t care too much and just started popping them in his mouth.
The crunch to them was kinda painful in that “tooth freeze” kind of way but you did blow out smoke as you bit down on it. It was a cool effect even if you couldn’t yourself see yourself do it. And even if it was just for a short time.
The taste overall for this snack however I didn’t care too much for… I thought they were cereal balls and my boyfriend said they were Cheetos. I think I read somewhere they ARE Cheetos of some sort… despite the bright colors? Strange.
(Also strange, I’m listening to relaxing sounds on YouTube right now that claim to rid you of headaches and anxiety and my headache is slowly fading, uhm has this practice always been a thing?!)
It was a pretty fun experience but not something I’d make a habit of doing. But glad I could cross it off my foodie bucket list!
Have you ever or ever wanted to try Dragon’s Breath?
