Final thought… several years ago, while preparing to dive into a Zippy’s Zip Pac, I found myself in a real dilemma. Before we go any further, I must acknowledge, I know in the big picture of life, this is extremely trivial. Nevertheless, at that moment, I was in a real pickle. Or is it a daikon? Anyway, I stared at the mouth-watering bento in front of me, struggling to decide what to eat first. Would it be the fried chicken, breaded hoki fish, teri beef, rice topped with furikake, the takuan (daikon) or the slice of Spam?
It got me thinking… I wonder what others eat first? I took my question to social media and asked folks on Facebook, “What’s the first thing you eat in your Zip Pac?” I said I’d reveal the top answer the next day. The answers POURED in for several hours, and some even came attached with photos. In the end, nearly 700 people responded to the unscientific survey. Can you guess what item was the most popular? It was Spam… and it wasn’t even close.

By the way, in case you’re wondering: I go straight for the takuan! What about you?
