I sat around for most of the evening preparing favors for my guests at an upcoming party. I collected all my favorite Asian snacks and treats from childhood including Pocky sticks, cute little stick crackers dipped in such delectable things as chocolate, strawberry and even savory salad dressing flavors. I attached cute little cards to them and they’ll double as place cards.
