VitaVitasoy has launched two new drinks in the calci-plus series.


The new Coconut Hi-Calcium healthy drink and Almond Hi-Calcium healthy drink are both low in sugar, cholesterol free and high in calcium.

++++++++
Almond Hi-Calcium healthy drink:

The almond is light with a lovely nutty taste and not that sweet just how it is as advertised.
It is said to be good for the skin and cardio.
++++++++
Coconut Hi-Calcium healthy drink:
IMG_20170509_005930.jpg
The coconut is comparatively sweeter than the almond but not that sweet.
I liked it because you could taste the coconut while the taste is not too milky.
According to the carton, it is said to help in weight management.

Yogur Train

Recently discovered this Instant yoghurt drink called Yogur Train at the food expo because of the colorful packaging.
There are many flavours: original, banana, mango and cheese.

IMG_20170727_155927.jpg

Frankly the cheese yoghurt sounds strange but then I haven't tried it.

I got the original which comes in a box of six sachets.

IMG_20170806_151410.jpg

The instant yoghurt drinks are made by mixing 120ml of mix with one sachet of Yogur Train.
IMG_20170806_151053.jpg

The milk normally comes in 2xx ml cartons so it was a bit troublesome to measure out half so I decided to mix a whole carton and a sachet which turned out really good and the sweetness was just right.

It is interesting that McDonald’s have put a Philippine twist to their food with the promotion of Minions.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Eggcellent silly double patty beef

Calamansi McFloat

Banana pie

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++

For the McCafe brand, there is:

McDonald’s Eggscellent silly double beef :

It has two beef patties, onions, egg and cheese with black pepper sauce.

I found the black pepper sauce too sweet and not that peppery.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++

McDonald’s Banana pie:

DSC_3085.JPG

The banana puree was natrual but too sweet otherwise it would have been perfect.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++

McCafe’s Hot chocolate banana:

DSC_3077.JPG

Too sweet with a mildly artificial banana taste.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++

McCafe’s chocolate banana roll:

DSC_3083.JPG

The banana cream in the middle was really artificial

+++++++++++++++++++++++++

McCafe’s iced chocolate banana:

The iced version tastes better because it is not as sweet as the hot version.

Whipped cream is good but alcohol infused cream is even better!!!

These huge canisters of Whipped cream are infused with 15% alcohol content and come in four fun flavours:

Chocolate, caramel, vanilla and strawberry.

proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2F1.bp.blogspot.com

I got my hands on Chocolate, vanilla and strawberry.

The great thing is that IT DOES NOT need to be refrigerated.

The alcohol infused cream can go almost everywhere or you can consume it straight from the canister.

I had fun dispensing it on top of jelly and biscuits.

If I could get hold of some scones, waffles or crepes I would definitely add infused cream to it.

It can also be added to drinks as well.

proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2F2.bp.blogspot.com

The cream was easily dispensed but practice makes perfect.

Orange jelly with alcohol infused chocolate cream

Chocolate dipped biscuit with alcohol infused vanilla cream 
proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2F3.bp.blogspot.com

Chocolate dipped biscuit with alcohol infused strawberry cream

proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2F2.bp.blogspot.com

These creams definitely jazzed things up, the chocolate was the best, while the vanilla was good paired with biscuits and cakes and the strawberry was good on fresh fruits or berries

The alcoholic taste was really strong which was great for sophisticating things with an alcoholic touch.

The canisters are informatively labelled and they have leaflets with suggested recipes.

These are my favourite instant soupless noodles from Taiwan which are popular in Europe.
I always get a stash of them from the Chinese supermarkets in UK.

Years and years ago, the packaging was different and it used to be yellow and green.
I thought they were discontinued when they changed the packaging but recently found out that they are still around but in a white, blue and red design.

The noodles are flat and wavy.

Bean paste:

Broth powder:

I always cook them with the broth powder, then draining it quickly to mix the yummy bean sauce to it.

They taste amazing because the paste in the sachet is spicy with a strong black bean taste to it.

Walkers Pops

Walkers Pops are new crisps which are air-popped snacks and claim to be 50% less fat than standard potato crisps.

Currently available in Original, Sour Cream & Onion, Melted Cheese & Crispy Bacon, and Prawn Cocktail.

Thanks to my mum, I got my hands on the Original and Prawn cocktail.

They look like perfectly uniform round Chinese prawn crackers but the texture is similar Monster munches with that maize feeling in it.
It was surprising how two different flavours could taste so different, the prawn cocktail was very acidic but had that usual prawn cocktail smell and the original was much nicer with a strong potato taste.

There are so many slush makers but this one is exclusive to Vita's VLT.
You can get it for $25 by purchasing $20 more on Vita's Chrysanthemum Tea or Lemon tea at 7-11. Circle K and Vango.

I admit, I was too impatient on my first go so it didn't work.
You have to put it in the fridge for at least six hours!

I am posting this because the cutlery on Virgin Atlantic was impressive.

20161124_210313.jpg
The plastic cutlery was a clear dark purple.
On the handle it says "Designed by Virgin Atlantic in London" but unfortunately it was hard to photograph.

You get a sachet of Salt and Pepper which comes in a nice black an white design.

Despite being born and raised in Eastbourne, I have never dined at the Victorian Tea Rooms located in the middle of Eastbourne Pier.
Thankfully it was untouched by the fire in 2014.

20160908_000314.jpg

20160908_000323.jpg

As a foodie I decided to pay it a visit because I have not written much about my hometown.

Inside the tea room, it was just how it was when I saw it from the outside as a child.

The carpets were really familiar, perhaps they were popular and carpeted everywhere in those days.
20160908_002350.jpg

There were golden crystal chandeliers and a picturesque view of the sea on both sides.

Looking at the menu, the Sussex Tea set was only £3.95 which includes a scone with cream, jam and a pot of tea.

In contrast to that, the Egg and Cress sandwich seemed expensive because it was £3.25 without tea but then it was freshly made with cress which you can see in the fridge cabinet.
20160908_002435.jpg

I ordered the Egg mayonnaise and cress because I haven't had it for ages and not many places have fresh cress in the kitchen.
It was really comforting when my sandwich came, seeing all that luscious green cress in the sandwich and cress sprinkled on the salad.
As expected, it was delicious and the fresh cress did wonders.
The only let down was the service because it wasn't that friendly and it was late in the day so they were not amused when more customers came in.

Normally jellies are fruit flavoured but I happened to come across one that was made of vegetables by a Japanese brand called Woody Village.
13779_795671040547905_404455139142612354
On the side of the cup, it shows the vegetables that are in the jelly.

15574_795671003881242_553501409144862780
After peeling the lid, you can see tomato seeds in the jelly.

11152333_795670897214586_732597088877017
There were bits and pieces of vegetables in it.
As for the taste, there was a strong tomato taste but I didn't like it because it tasted artificially sweet which is really weird because tomatoes are not meant to be sweet.

There was also carrot jelly as well so I wonder how that would taste.

From the appearance, you could be easily fooled thinking it was a tiny Cornetto!

But it is actually a non-icecream confectionary!!

Wrapped just like the real thing, there is a real wafer cone inside with Vanilla filling topped with nuts and chocolate.

At the bottom of the cone, it is also has chocolate too!

DSC04185.JPG

The taste was quite interesting because the vanilla icecream was mimicked by whipped vanilla cream and it was enjoyable and fun eating it!

The first non melting cornetto!

Tried the USA Nissin beef BIG cup noodles that are slightly different to the Asian version because the noodles are wider and similar to linguini with a softer texture when it has absorbed the broth.
The beef flavour was quite light.
As well the noodles, the packaging is different because they use card and not PFC.

Obviously I got this drink because of the design.
There were two flavours: Milk or coconut.
I liked the way it was like a milk bottle with a cow merged into a teabag to represent the beverage inside which was Assam tea.

20161017_175314.jpg

20161017_175321.jpg
I ended up getting the coconut because you don't normally put coconut milk in tea.

There was a strong Assam tea taste but you couldn't really taste the coconut.
Overall, I liked the drink because it was not too sweet.

I love TWIX!!
It was surprising they had this Left and Right Twix.
However I ruined the experiment because I had the Left first and the Right was refridgerated so the texture and taste was certainly different.

Tried the new Tropicavo chicken burger which is a crispy chicken patty topped with avocado, a slice of cheese, mayonnaise and some orange sauce.
The box was quite cute.

02ELK1FCB2A892B86D2C36l.jpg
The paper wrap was also nicely presented, on one side it is avocado for this burger and the other side has pineapples for the prawn burger.
02ELK2F077E5775BDD2D17l.jpg
I was lucky at this branch because they put quite a bit of sauce which differs in different branches.
The burger tasted quite salty and I couldn't quite taste the avocado.

I am not that keen on Sweet potato flavoured drinks because they can taste quite artificial and I think that artificial taste is like Playdoh!!!!
The sweet potato milk by Trappist dairy was not that bad and quite palatable.

When I first came across this snack bar I thought it was a dental product because of the name toosum.

toosum comes from the old English word “toothsome,” means temptingly tasty and delicious.

toosum seeks tasty natural ingredients from around the world and each 100 calorie snack bar flavour is inspired by exotic locations such as the South Pacific islands, the Amazon rainforest, the Greek Mediterranean Sea, and East Asia.

There are four flavours:
10462981_706557036125973_445068419944248
Each bar is clearly labelled.

10404160_706557052792638_123980764156291
My favourites were the greek yoghurt and the cherries and plum really I love the fruity tastes.
The texture of the bar was nice and chewy with crispy chia seeds in it and the overall taste was good because it was not too sweet.
