Maria Polka (妙雅) is a Polish YouTuber and is the co-creator behind the channel The Lis (勵家人).
She moved to Taiwan in 2015, and currently runs the YouTube channel with her Taiwanese husband Darren. The two often make lifestyle and traveling videos sharing their multicultural life.
In a recent video, the couple unboxed Taiwanese snacks with Maria’s sisters Konstancja and Adrianna.
They ordered a box full of assorted snacks to try and the YouTubers tried five-spice peanuts (五香花生) for their first item with everyone enjoying the flavourful snack.
Next was guava juice, which some found tasty as they described it tasting like beer without alcohol.
Another item that the four tried was dried fish snacks. Darren explained that the snack is a Taiwanese favorite, but the foreigners did not like it, stating that it tasted like dog food and was very dry.
The next snack they tried was fried chicken flavored chips. The snack was well-received among the four, and Maria especially loved the snack as it reminded her of the fried chicken in Taiwan.
Following that were salted egg yolk crackers. Adrianna stated that the crackers were delicious as they tasted like Taiwanese sweet egg rolls. Maria, however, did not like the snack as she thought the egg yolk taste was too overwhelming.
The four then tried Taiwanese beef jerky, with Maria explaining that Taiwanese jerky is very different from Polish jerky, as Taiwanese uses both salt and sugar in preserving foods, and Polish snacks use only salt.
The last snack they tried was pea crackers (可樂果), and everyone enjoyed the snack because of the strong garlic flavor.
At the end of the video, all four expressed their enjoyment in unboxing the snacks and said they would like to do it again in the future.
