Israeli Bamba comes to Trader Joe's

Why are so many Americans proudly posing on social media holding bags of the Israel peanut snack, Bamba?

This unabashed public display of affection is thanks to Trader Joe's, with is now carrying the same Bamba you grew up loving:

Made for us in Israel, where Bamba is far and away the best-selling snack in the country, Trader Joe’s Bamba Peanut Snacks contain just four, simple ingredients: corn grits, peanut paste, palm oil, and salt. First, the corn grits are “popped” under high pressure, turning them into long rope-like lines of white, puffed, unflavored “Bamba.” Next, the Bamba is cut into peanut-sized nuggets and air-baked for 20 seconds in a drying chamber, which gives it an even crispier texture.

Bamba is just one of many fine Israeli products carried by Trader Joe's.

i did a Google search yesterday with the key words Bamba Trader Joe's and i was surprised in just the past week alone how many sites (both web sites and blogs) had something about this. Trader Joe's carrying Bamba could be a bigger BDS fail then i originally thought.
