Fear Conquered! Panko breadcrumbs

When all of the World Markets in Minnesota closed, everything in the stores went on sale. Although I was very sad (no more dark chocolate with sea salt in driving distance for me), I took advantage of some of the sales that they had in their grocery aisle. I found this bag of panko breadcrumbs for a little bit over a dollar. What's the big deal? Well - I had heard about panko but never really got how it was different from the other breadcrumbs that you buy at the grocery store. The difference? Panko breadcrumbs are made out of bread without crusts, making the crumbs lighter and airier. (Got that from Wikipedia. Rock.)
