May contain traces of nuts, but I prefer to play Russian roulette

Chomping through the snack food shelf at the local superette in China, this next snack is chicken flavoured with a hint of chilli. I can’t read Chinese, so, I have to say that in choosing the flavour, I didn’t really take much effort to look at the graphical hints on the packet. Culinary Russian roulette you might say. The worst consequences could be a trip to the loo, or the least, a waste of money. Fortunately, I’ve never come out on the wrong side, and have never disliked a packet I’ve opted for. The form of the snacks are rice snacks, but taste like Maggi chicken stock. The type used for making soups and… flavouring dishes that are supposed to have chicken in them. Why do all the snacks I’ve tried so have so far have sodding chilli in them?
