Do you have fond memories of schoolyard snack crate or Traditional Jamaican snacks packed in a box with piles of cheese trix, eclipse biscuits and other treats? A little more of what Islsnac Caribbean grocery store has to offer. Children in schoolyards flocked vendor's pop-up shop for these delicious savory Trinidad, Barbados, and Jamaican snack box treats. Break time, lunchtime, and school over time, is always the snack periods during the day. The selections of West Indian and snacks from Jamaica seemed to be endless. The choices of snack crate are so many; and the ping pong chocolate, Tiki bar, catch chocolate, St Mary's and chippie's banana chips, lams plantain chips, and Jamaican cheese trix are usually the crowd's favorite treats.

Homemade Snack Pastries

Next to the branded snack crate treats and cheese Trix are the homemade and playful snack bites such as donkey corn, also known as jackass corn, police button, and busta. Busta is a chewy candy molasses sweet, usually wrapped in white parchment paper. These are set aside in their pile, tightly secured in transparent plastic bags for the strong tooth contestants. At the other end of the vendor's kiosk, Jamaican coconut drops, gizzada, evenly sliced sweet potato pudding, and Budin de pan is available in the glass case, also known as a display case. The queue for these Caribbean pastries and Jamaican desserts usually consists of mature folks. i.e., teachers, parents, and guardians. While the grownups choose their favorite dessert slices, the children continue to hover around the Bermudez and the traditional Jamaican snacks to fill their snack crate and pockets in abundance. 

After School Snacking

In the schoolyard playground, cricket, hopscotch, dandy shandy, ringa ringa rosie, and send mi Nicki guh a school Mrs. Soloman, were the games we played while snacking way on these savory Jamaican cheese Trix snacks. Break time is the first playtime during the mid-morning, around 10 or so. Thereafter, lunchtime follows. School over means final recess. During the grand finale of the school day, pickinis or children have saved and accumulated their snack crate selections for the final session of the schoolyard games before going home.
