Top Row ...
Hot Black Bean;
seasoned sesame seed - horseradish;
Hunan chili paste;
Middle Row ...
Knorr Extra Hot & Sour soup mix;
Black fungus (might be called Mo Er);
Knorr Hot & Sour soup mix;
Water chestnut flour.
Bottom Row ...
Sesame seeds - White;
Dried Prickly Ash (Szechuan Peppercorns);
Dried Star Anise;
Sesame seeds - Black.
I might go back and exchange the black and white sesame
seeds for packaging like the wasabi sesame seeds
-- those are in a sprinkle/shaker dispensing jar. Just
a little more expensive, but more convenient to use.
Fun! ... right?
BTW, some details about the camera and the image ...
The camera is a new (new to me) Kodak Z1015 IS
(10 MP, 15X optical and can shoot HD video at 720p)
I shot this hand held without any special lighting in a bit
of a rush ... but might reshoot with tripod and more diffuse
light source (or other effort) to kill the reflections.
p.s. one of the packages was upside down ... which one???
