Default What "snack" goes with rum?

A friend and I are going to taste a few rums this week - and I was wondering, if there was some sort of "snack" that goes well with rum, that we could enjoy while trying to sound clever to each other?

Neither of us smokes cigars, so I was thinking in the lines of chocolate, but I fear it will disturb the taste of the different rums - and salty snacks I presume are all wrong? Cake? Candy? Vegetables? Fruits? Anything?

Anyone have a good suggestion?

(Not that the rum doesn't go nicely alone, hee hee)

Salty is ok with me, I like roasted peanuts and cashews while I sip my rum.

I tried plantains when I was visiting indians outside Manaus a few years ago (in a dish with piranhas and chive), but it is a fruit/vegetable that is not commonly available here in Denmark - maybe one of the smaller speciality-stores will have it. It looks very interesting.

Thank you for the tip. If I can't find the plantains, I will try regular bananas. It'll probably be a mess in the pan though

Cheese! See Rumdood's entry on the subject.

Tortillas con frijoles y queso are good, too.

I agree, chocolate is great with a good rum. Ron Diplomatico usually have chocolate to sample along with their rums at rum festivals and usually a few pretty girls to serve it. Always one of my favourite stands!!!

Whatever you eat with your rum is going to enhance or distract from the experience of drinking rum. But it is important to eat something when you're drinking alcohol. I love to roast fresh coconut meat sprinkled with a bit of sea salt. Too much salt is distracting but a little fresh sea salt really brings out the oils in the coconut and flavors in my first ti punch of the day. Fried plantains are also great appetizers.

With the rum punch served with the first course I like something like conch fritters, fish cakes, roasted shrimp or something that is easy to eat with my fingers.

After dinner it's time for a sipping rum and some chocolate and a cup of coffee. Rich chocolate cake without too much sugar frosting is also one of my favorite foods to enjoy with a sipping rum.
