These 8 Sweets And Snacks Will Give You Major Nostalgia If You Grew Up In Saudi Arabia


Growing up in Saudi, like anywhere else, gave most of us the privilege to have tried the best local food (Bukhari or mandi, anyone?), sweets and snacks. Chances are, even if you’ve left Saudi, your mouth will water over these eight nostalgic childhood snacks we’d indulge in.

Check them out below:

1. Almarai Chocolate Milko or Galaxy chocolate milk

Fancy schmancys would walk around school with this in hand, and we would try to conceal the inner bitterness.
