Mentos choco

I am not a fan of mentos mints of the fruit flavours but the mentos choco series were sooooooooooooo delicious.
It was chewy caramel filled with chocolate.
There are two flavours choco caramel and mint caramel filled with chocolate.

Got these gorgeous alcoholic whipped creams so used it on nearly every dessert I could get hold of.

The whipped cream makes the desserts so much more delicious because the bitterness of the alcohol goes really well with the sweetness.

As I can't read Japanese I couldn't quite make sense of this flavour but the Chinese labelling seems to decipher garlic, egg white and oxtail as the main ingredients.
The design of the cup noodle is the same as the 45th anniversary series where they had controversial sharks fin and turtle.

Chinese labelling:

I found pieces of black fungus, bell peppers, spring onions and beef which can be found when you peel back the lid.
20161227_191201.jpg

After adding water the broth was quite white and milky.
20161227_195432.jpg
The sauce added in:
20161227_195459.jpg

The smell was strangely like Parmesan mixed with milk and the taste was creamy and oily.

The bits of beef were thinly sliced just like the ones you find at Yoshinoya beef rice bowls.

Cup Noodle’s 45th anniversary

If you are British, you will obviously know that jelly comes in jelly blocks before you make it.
In some other countries they come in powder form like Hartley's glitter jelly.

I decided to post this so that people can see the jelly block before it is made and I always ending eating some of it before making the jelly.

It comes in a packet like this:

20161218_144954.jpg

When you remove the wrapper, there is a pretty jelly block that is firm and tough.

20161220_144344.jpg

20161220_144459.jpg

20161220_144906.jpg

To make the jelly, it is best to cut them into squares cubes.
20161220_145300.jpg

20161220_145314.jpg
Obviously I ate some because some of the cubes have disappeared and they taste amazing just like that with a lovely strawberry fragrance and they are not too sweet!
20161220_145448.jpg

You just simply add boiling water, let it dissolve and pour it into a container and let it set in the fridge for a few hours.

Here is the jelly that is ready.
It is slightly lighter in colour.

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.

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.

20160908_000705.jpg

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.

While I was at the convenience store, the Tuna and Mayonnaise crisps caught my eyes.
Beside it were Tuna Mayonnaise cup noodles also by the same Korean Brand Nong Shim.

IMG_20180319_211040.jpg

Decided to try the cup noodles because I was just curious about how it would taste.
IMG_20180319_214354.jpg

Tuna Mayonnaise is normally a sandwich filling that is slightly creamy with chunks of tuna.

I can't read Korean so the English labelling was helpful and it was strange that the ingredients has Worchester sauce!!!!
IMG_20180319_214231.jpg

When you peel the lid back, there are two sachets, one is the sauce and the other is some yellow thing.
IMG_20180319_214714.jpg

There are some sort of brown bits within the noodles which I believe are possibly soya bits pretending to be tuna????
IMG_20180319_214452.jpg

To eat, you remove the sachets, pour boiling water in the noodles.
Leave it for a while and drain the water.
There are holes at the other end of the lid which you pierce to drain.

The mayonnaise sachet was big and I was quite skeptical about the taste because that much mayonnaise is going to be really sickly.
IMG_20180319_215200.jpg

The colour of the mayonnaise was strangely brown!!!
After mixing it, the sauce turned creamy yellow so there must be a lot of creamer in that paste!!
IMG_20180319_215328.jpg

As for the taste, it definitely does not taste like sandwich filling but there is a strong creamer powder aftertaste in your mouth.
IMG_20180319_215358.jpg

Not quite convinced by these noodles because they are a bit too sweet for my liking,

There are so many ready made meals to choose from these days.
Granny Marys JUST collection appealed to me because the logo was nice and being a graduate from QMUL I liked the Mary in the name.

The JUST collection does not have pasta/rice which is makes it great for sharing and they can be microwaved which saves up to 45 minutes of time and gas when you can have it almost in flash!!

Without thinking, I bought most of the range but sadly forgot to buy the Cottage Pie.

29388552_1622036761244658_107594003121176576_n.jpg

As soon as I got home, I was so excited to try them but sadly I could only try 2 boxes because they are quite big portions.
It was really hard to decide which one to try because they are all British classics.
Luckily, they don't stock the full range or I would probably have to buy it all!!!!
In the end I chose Chili Beef (with pulled beef) as it was pulled beef and not minced beef.
29365518_1622036937911307_5083273504837599232_n.jpg

Basically you remove the card sleeve, pierce the film, microwave it for about 4 minutes, let it stand for 1 minute and put it in for another 3 minutes.
I paired the chili beef with Indian Rice.
29386983_1622036867911314_2936718428766994432_n.jpg

The taste was fantastic with chunks of pulled beef but I underestimated how hot it was and it is spicier than other ready to eat chili con carnes and curries that I have tried.

I also tried the Parsnips in spiced honey because I have to try everything at once if I can because I just can't resist food and all being my favourite British classics!!

29424974_1622036807911320_3936829369258868736_n.jpg

The parsnips were sweet with a nice hint of cracked black pepper.
The sweetness was quite soothing after that hot Chili Beef.
I can't wait to try the others soon but I am so busy with restaurant invitations that I don't have time and appetite to eat at home.

Having tried DOLL Hello Kitty noodles and finding edible Hello Kitties inside, I decided to get the TRANSFORMERS one to see what edible Transformers would look like.
The flavour was also unique because this is the only tomato flavour that I know of in the DOLL series.
[I made the cup noodles spin using a fidget spinner]


Well, I must say I was quite disappointed because you don't get any edible Transformers but you get a sticker.
The broth tasted like Weight watchers tomato sauce.

Milka is a brand of chocolate which originated in Switzerland and now manufactured internationally by the US confectionery company Mondelēz International (formerly known as Kraft Foods).

The cake and chocolate bar hybrid was appealing so got it.

I was really lucky to get a bottle of this chili sauce delivered by FedEx from the Caribbean!

A tiny drop really packs a punch, the sauce contains Thyme, brown sugar, vinegar, red and green pepper.

McDonald's have launched a new prawn burger with pineapple and a pineapple pie so tried them.

Whenever the ebi burger (prawn burger) is launched, it becomes a popular choice.

Now they have launched the ebi burger with pineapple, which basically has a slice of pineapple in the middle with the same mayonnaise sauce that they use for the chicken sandwich.

01E3DO5DCA3A16AB1D9622l.jpg

01E3DPBA30308F3164D962l.jpg

The pineapple in the burger was a bit too juicy and stole the show with its sweet flavours.

It was also difficult eating the burger because when you bite into it, you are biting against the pineapple fibres so you have to tear the pineapple.

01E3DQ2C1CB41B08D02083l.jpg

To my knowledge the pies that have been launched before in HK are red bean and taro.

Hopefully they will launch peach as well because that would taste quite nice.

01DY709CAC0306FB475BF0l.jpg

★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★☆★

pineapple pie:

01DY6ZDF0AC92786143A6Fl.jpg

The pineapple pie filling is the same as the apple in terms of consistency and viscosity.

It has the same sort of sweetness as the apple but it has small chunks of pineapple instead and the pineapple taste is not that strong.

GinZeng is the first beverage with genuine American ginseng pieces in it retailing at $20 per bottle at Citysuper.

The ginseng is grown in Wisconsin US, graded in Hong Kong and bottled in Taiwan,.

There are three flavours: Original, Goji berry and rose.

Every bottle has pieces of ginseng at the bottom.

ORIGINAL GINZENG:

This contains American ginseng with natural rock sugar and water to help improve wellbeing and rejuvenates the body. American ginseng is known to deepen concentration, sharpen your mind, improve memory, and energize the body, all without caffeine!

I loved the taste of this one because the ginseng tasted natrual with a hint of bitterness and it was not too sweet.

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

DSC_1731.jpg
GOJI BERRY GINZENG

This contains American ginseng and goji berries which are said to be an excellent source of antioxidants, loaded with beta-carotene which helps promote healthy, glowing skin, and are packed with Vitamin C.

Compared to the first drink, the bitterness was stronger.

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

DSC_1730.jpg
ROSE GINZENG

This contains rose and ginseng.

Roses are known to brighten moods, relieve tension and calm your mind.

I didn't try this because I don't like the smell of rose.

The three founders of this drink graduated from the all time prestigious UCL from my lovely country!

As a Brit, bacon and sausages are a must have item on the plate but in Hong Kong you can't find decent sausages and back bacon so you end up dining out for them.

Recently discovered this brand called Golden Pig from the UK selling delicious sausages and bacon.

https://www.facebook.com/goldenpighk

DSC_2749h.jpg

There are three flavours for the sausages:

Pork and apple:

I was greedy so I had sausages, bacon and the pork and apple burger in my lunchbox!!!!!!!!!!

11156126_792653130849696_680434523091208

The star of the show was the pork and apple burger, which was a huge burger patty that was succulent and juicy.

The bacon was flawless with the right level of saltiness on a bed of mixed grain rice.

I was really excited with the Matcha seafood flavor cup noodles because Matcha is such a common flavour that is used everywhere.

20170320_213505.jpg

The design was also attractive, there is so much detail on it from Mount Fuji, a drome with a face on it carrying a lantern, a cute fortune cat, a geisha, a train at the bottom and lots more.

When you peel back the lid, you will see the usual contents found in a seafood cup noodle such as egg bits, octopus slices, cabbage, carrots and spring onions.

The only thing different is that the broth powder is green and the noodles are green.

Got this from someone who went to Universal Studios in Japan.
Apparently they come in a box of four.

On the labelling it actually says MINI MENS and you will notice there is a banana after the word Noodle.

20170319_210730.jpg

IMG_20170319_210806.jpg

There are bits of egg and Minions.
They basically taste the same as the usual Nissin Seafood noodles with an interesting aftertaste of those Banana chews. The noodles are very silky as well.
20170319_211126.jpg

20170319_211450.jpg

Overall, they were quite nice and the banana wasn't that off putting.

Tried the Beehive shaved seasoned ham with basil, oregano and rosemary.
IMG_20161023_0025_39.jpeg

The ham was juicy, flavourful and tender without being too salty but the only weakness was that I could not taste any of the herbs.

I liked the easy peel portion control packs which allow one portion to be opened and consumed while the other pack can be put in the fridge.

20161022_190236.jpg

20161022_190253.jpg

Other options in the shaved meat range:
Honey Baked (100g and 175g), Champagne (100g & 175g), Chicken Breast (100g & 175g) and Milano Salami (90g).
