If you want to try something different from ordinary snacks and desserts, the latest nitrogen snacks are something that will surely fulfill your expectations. Nitrogen snacks, or as they are still called Dragon’s breath, will amuse you, and for a few moments it will transform you to a mythical being. Dragon’s breath will never be boring, and how is it possible that smoked snacks are not interesting to you?
When, during the 2016, a coffee shop in Philadelphia began to serve ice cream with liquid nitrogen, it probably did not even imagine that it will become very popular in a short time. The demands for this dessert that started to be called “dragon’s breath” were growing, and social networks were soon flooded with photographs of people who looked like a dragon. This unusual snack, though it may seem complicated to make, is actually made mostly of fruity cereal puffs or light and airy snacks such as marshmallows, wafers or caramel popcorn and a liquid nitrogen. Snacks are dripped into nitrogen, and as it has no taste, dragon’s breath therefore has the taste of fruit or other snacks. So, this is a fantastic experience, two in one: a favorite snack and a smoke. Dragon’s breath is most often served in a two-piece bar, and it is certainly a favorite for the youngest. The restaurant in Philadelphia is certainly not the only place where you can try it, your own “smoky” snack. This dessert is very popular so that it can be found in most cafes and in restaurants that serve ice cream. So, basically, everywhere in the world.
Make sure that you eat the dragon’s breath in small quantities to allow your mouth to warm naturally between the snacks. If you are eating nitrogen snack too fast, you can quickly cool your mouth and come into direct contact with the liquid nitrogen, which you certainly do not want.
“Smoky” snack is generally safe to eat, but you still need to pay little attention when eating your fun dessert. First make sure that the liquid nitrogen evaporates before you put the bite in your mouth, in that way the cold will not hurt you. Eat nitrogen snacks just like you would eat very hot food, very slow and carefully. Always take the pieces of snacks with sticks, never by hands, and always in small bites (as well as hot food) because just like you would not like to get burned, you also would not like to get your mouth frozen. Although, you do not have to worry about it much because, thanks to a scientific phenomenon called Leidenfrost effect, a cushion of gas provides a protective wrap if liquid nitrogen comes into contact with your body temperature for a short time.

If you are eating nitrogen snack too fast, you can quickly cool your mouth and come into direct contact with the liquid nitrogen, which you certainly do not want. If you have sensitive teeth, it is necessary to keep a piece of snacks on the stick while holding it in your mouth, so your breath will gradually warm, but you will definitely be able to have fun with smoke. However, if you immediately chew a snack, there may be pain in your teeth. In the end, the most important, but also the most fun, is that you must breathe out the vapors, although no warning is needed for that. The best part in nitrogen snacks is smoke that evaporates after you eat them, and as long as you adhere to these small rules, nitrogen snacks will always be incredibly fun.
