Up For Crabs

I discovered these freeze dried crab snacks at H-Mart while on a kimchi run earlier this week.  While they aren't as godawful as you'd think, they are an "acquired taste" -- to say the least.


What type of crab are they?  How are they cooked?  Where do they come from?  -- I have no fucking idea. My best guess is that they hail from Korea or Japan, and are baked and then freeze dried before being candied in a sweet sesame glaze.


They crunch like Cheetos and have a strong, briny taste reminiscent of the "shrimp flavor" packets used to flavor instant ramen.  The sesame glaze is light, but sufficiently sweet enough to balance out this incredibly peculiar treat.
