SnackTAYku International Vs. returns to usher in Christmas in July. Like the Ghost of Christmas Past and the Ghost of Christmas Future, this edition of SnackTAYku International was relevant about six months ago and will be relevant about six months from now. Advertisement Fret not! Maybe you've been noticing ridiculous sightings in retail: Christmas decorations creeping from the back of the stores and lining the shelves. So while retail is being ridiculous, we'll be the same here on SnackTAYku International. No way is this a post that was written last year and missed its December deadline. Nope. I was just reminiscing as I stuffed my face with hamburgers over the 4th of July weekend, is all. Yep. Time Capsuling a post? Madness! Nay! It's not just madness! It's Christmas in July Madness!In Trinidad, there's a type of folk music that will traditionally hit the airwaves around Christmas time called "parang". With its roots in Venezuela (that we borrowed on the sly and made even cooler), - the home of my fellow SnackTAYku International competitor, Nach - parangs document the culture of Trinidadian Christmas. Upbeat, catchy and designed for a good time, there's one parang in particular that captures exactly the sort of food most households in the Island have during the Season.
