Burmese Snacks For Sale on U Bien Bridge in Mandalay

I can find hundreds of photos of the photogenic U Bien Bridge in Mandalay but not so many of the amazing food for sale at the rest stops along the way.

Salty snacks made up of beans, corn or other starchy vegetables are really popular in Myanmar.
