In Israel, Bamba refers to one of the country’s most popular snacks. Sold since 1964, it’s a soft yet crunchy treat made of puffed corn flavored like peanuts, almost like a nutty Cheez Doodle. Additionally, it’s 100% Kosher. No trip to Israel would be complete without sampling this beloved snack for yourself.
