I’ve been trying to find a place to buy chufas—a nutlike snack from Spain—for the last five years. My search finally ended at La Tienda, an online Spanish foods store, where I found a two-pound bag of them. Although chufas are often used to make horchata, I’ve been eating them on their own. I soak them in water overnight to rehydrate them, and in the morning I am greeted with a bowl of crispy, coconutty goodness. Unfortunately, I also saw a $200 bone-in Serrano ham with hoof on the site, and I can’t seem to shake the compulsion to order it. Proceed with caution.
