BELMONT, Calif. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – If you want to get into the Japanese spirit while watching the Winter Olympics in Nagano, try munching on dried squid and shrimp chips.

Those are just two odd Asian snack food delicacies according to Asian snack food expert Peggy Liu.

Liu says there are all sorts of bizarre junk food treats available in Asian food markets that can add a Japanese touch to your Olympic viewing. Some of the goodies include...

  • Tiny whole fish coated in salt, which are the Japanese equivalent of salted peanuts.

  • A “fish jerky”-like product that’s actually dried cuttlefish.

  • If you’re really adventurous, you can always try the chocolates filled with the super-hot Japanese horseradish paste, wasabi.

    Liu runs a website that specializes in Asian culture called Channel A at
