Italy Epilogue: Candy and Fennel Seed Tea

Vivident Fruit Blast and Fennel Seed Tea

This is a bit late, but better late than never, I suppose. Here were a couple of little things from that last trip to Italy, the first of which was simply gum that I bought in my effort to dump change at the airport. It had some kind of a fruity gel inside the gum, but with a hard shell on the outside; a bit like Fresh'n Up meets Chiclets. I liked it...and it tasted a bit better than it sounded.

The second was some kind of an herbal fennel tea bag. Well, to be more specific, it was pretty much just ground up fennel seeds that one could run hot water over to create a fairly weak tasting drink. It tasted just like the fennel seeds that one might find at the cashier on the way out of an Indian restaurant. Maybe one could steep it together with those artichoke tea bags from Vietnam for a vegetable tea of sorts.
