They're just a pack of thin discs, of dried chopped hawthorn fruit with sugar. Bitter/sweet... sweet/sour? I used to really like them, I think I was buying them in Chinatown back home before I even first moved to Asia. That said, I haven't had them for many years.

Haw flakes are being included in the SG50 funpacks.

OK, I guess it does show up in the "Exotic Asian Food" clip, along with durian and chicken feet:

A German lorry driver in a pub in Newcastle [UK] gobbing off about how lazy the British are because he drives his load from Hamburg, goes through Holland, Belgium,up to Newcastle and back to Hamburg in two days.
This old Geordie [native of Newcastle] man mutters... "Ay! Way back man... I used to pick up my load in Newcastle drop off in Hamburg and be back in Newcastle the same day."
The German trucker snorted and said... "Oh Yeah....what rig were you driving?"
The old fella replied... "A LANCASTER BOMBER!!!"

'Go For an English [sketch title] - Goodness Gracious Me [long-running UK TV series]'
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xdo79znnHl8

In the UK, especially amongst students and in the few years that follow student life, going for a Friday night curry [aka 'cuzzer', easier to say when drunk I suppose :) ] is a social institution and something of a right of passage.

The typical night is going to a pub after studies or work, meeting your mates, getting several beers in you, then leaving the pub early enough so you've time at the restaurant, and aren't so drunk that you can still walk a few hundred metres.

Once there, you'd normally order poppadoms with the pickle-tray for the table, while choosing your meal. To many young Brits, especially from rural areas, going to a 'real Indian restaurant' (that's BrIndian curry of course. And in an Indian restaurant everything on the menu is considered to be 'curry' :lol: ). Choosing the meal takes time as the menus are long, and the newbie has little idea what anything is, so that's time to order some more beers in in the interim. Since everyone is likely drunk already there can be a bit of 'banter' [jokey chat] with the waiters, and very occasionally they'll give it back too. That's when a drunk and 'wound-too-tight' diner can get angry. That said, I have never witnessed violence or even the threat of it in an Indian restaurant (whereas I have in budget 'Chinese' places in London's Chinatown).

Choosing the food is a bit of a maze. Some people don't want anything spicy [aka 'hot'] at all. Others want to show their bravado by ordering the hottest thing they think they can probably handle. It is ironic that back in my student days even a mid-level spicy dish like a chicken Madras was spicier than anything I had had immediately previously during 3 months in India. [I thought the food in India would be nuclear-spicy, and was very surprised to find it almost bland compared to BrIndian food :lol: ].
Anyway, the sketch is going to be intuitive to any Brit, but likely less so to others hence the above. The sketch is a cleverly observed reverse-parody of a group of young Indians going for their regular 'Friday night English' in Bombay.

Sigh* thanks to the British the world thinks we only do curry and Nan's, poppadoms and nothing else.
to a typical Aussie/British person the idea of Indian food revolves around the following dishes
1. kebab or some sort
2. butter chicken, chicken madras,
3. lamb curries and their variants
4. nans, nans and nans
5. samosas, bhajis and the like
6. mango lassi
7. vindaloos of different kinds
8. dals

We have 29 states in India, each with its own unique cuisine, go explore people,don't listen to them curry mongers.
To get there early is on time and showing up on time is late
