Excellent hoshigaki (dried hachiya persimmons) at Berkeley Bowl available by twosies

Berkeley Bowl West was selling baggies with two hosigaki. My two cost $3.95. Price per pound is $21.95.

Here's a previous post about hosigaki from a few years ago with tons of info about them

What is good about this is the chance to try these without committing major money. Tokyo Fish sells them, but usually in larger quantities in 2007 they were charging $18.95 for about 10

The Berkeley Bowl hosigaki are every bit as good as the ones I tried at Tokyo Fish. BBW said on the sign that there was a limited supply this year.
