If you're curious about what makes a good Supermarket Souvenir, check out this one that Joan Burns of Silver Spring, Md., picked up on a recent trip to Romania:
"I always look for gifts in supermarkets, and the market in Brasov, Transylvania, didn't let me down. I couldn't resist bringing home packets of Let's dip Dracula, named for Romania's infamous son. I don't read Romanian, so your guess is as good as mine as to the ingredients—but with the Dracula reference, I'm guessing it leans toward a "spicy" mix to share with guests. Even then, as Romanian cooks avoid spices at all costs, I doubt we'd call it hot!"
