I love chewy foods...the chewier the better...my favorites are:
teriyaki beef jerky
vegetarian beef jerky
grilled chicken er, gizzards? (korean dakdongjip)
pho w/ tendon
jjolmyun (korean noodles)
now and laters candy
i also love gnawing on the cartilage from chicken wings, though i'm not sure that quite qualifies as 'chewy'
so what are your favorite chewy foods?
squid, chicken hearts bbq'ed
any cut of meat with i guess "grisly" parts? i don't really know what those are but always enjoy them
agreed on cartilages -- too bad it seems to freak out (sound) most other people
oh! and maybe it's unsafe, but undercooked bacon, or thick cut hungarian bacon -- so chewy so salty
stir fried chewy rice cake in korean and chinese foods
tendon/gristle in any soup or marinated chinese style
i read some report from last year's all candy expo that they have come out with chewy atomic fireballs and have only spotted them ONE place online. If anyone has a source, hook me up.
we found the caramel apple sugar babies in my super small hometown in NW MN.. nothing in the metro where we live.. so maybe someone has a hoard of chewy fireballs they're willing to share??
I'm not a huge fan of chewy foods in general, but I do love my bagels, taro cakes, dried figs and tofu skin rolls.
I love mochi Grilled or in soup, I love them all!
And caramel toffee! I only hate it when I go to my dentist...
I really like chewy bread. It's probably not pastry perfect, but I love it. Chewy sourdough is the best.
Runner up - saltwater taffy and milk duds
Anybody else addicted to Goldenberg's Peanut Chews? I can't even walk down that aisle in Duane Reade!
concur with others' picks for sugar babies (sooo much better than daddy!), tootsie rolls (the vanilla minis especially), and hot tamales...
abba zabba (reminds me of my daddy)
oatmeal cooked w/ LOTS of water and cinnamon til gummy... same done with soy grits
also, barley cooked with lots and lots of water to become gooey and chewy
jarlsberg or gruyere nuked in the micro til just a bit melty and chewy
mini candy bars (esp musketeers) nuked in the micro til they melt and get chewy
spicy turkey jerky at whole foods
