One of my Favorite Things
I couldn't buy these in the States for love or money, but they are one baht each at a stall near Victory Monument. They are somewhat larger than fruit made from marzipan and have a glossy sheen. When you eat one it has a skin that is very like that on a Sabrett's hotdog. They would be very festive on a birthday cake.
I don't like to eat them but I do love to look at them, and I marvel that they are so carefully made by hand and then sold for what amounts to only a few pennies a piece.
They are called look choob and I'm afraid I have no idea what they are made of--rice flour?? Help me, Mrs. Cotterill!
