New ready to drink Hong Kong style tea 十字牌紅茶牛奶飲品 by 十字牌 Trappist Dairy.
M&M’S has teamed up with favorite comic heroes to spread colorful chocolate fun in celebration of the new Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 movie.
The new M&M’S commercial, M&M’S “Movies,” is airing now online and in cinemas.
It features iconic characters, Red and Yellow, in a movie theatre.
I am not a fan of Matcha but this is a popular flavour in Hong Kong.
McDonalds Hong Kong have launched this Matcha softserve.
Matcha cone, Matcha waffle cone, Matcha McFlurrys with genmai and Matcha sundae.
Some of them have a matcha Kitkat served with it.
Decided to try the Matcha Cone so that I could try the softserve and matcha wafer cone but it costs different at different branches.
The tea is also charged differently at different branches.
Overall, I wasn't impressed or surprised because it just tasted like the usual matcha flavour with a creaminess but the cone tasted a bit artificial.
I liked the packaging of this because it was a plastic can in a shape of a ball.
The combination of orange wine and cream sound good.
Check their website because there are more flavours and the packaging is really colourful!!
I was really excited with the Matcha seafood flavor cup noodles because Matcha is such a common flavour that is used everywhere.
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.
At the back, it has the usual ingredients and there is a picture of a row of capsule machines.
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.
After adding hot water it was ready to eat but I couldn't quite taste the matcha.
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.
More photos of the cup noodle.
When you peel back the lid, there is a smell of banana which smells the same as the sweets Banana Chews.
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.
Overall, they were quite nice and the banana wasn't that off putting.
Discovered the TWIX EGG at the convenience store, so got one to try.
Evidently American because they call biscuits as Cookies.
Anyway I found it sweeter than the #Twix in Uk.
I only write about gadgets when they are worth bragging out.
Recently my mobile phone died so I had to get a new one asap, so I got a Samsung J1 Mini thinking it would be good but it was slow and the battery goes fast.
In desperation I got another phone which turned out to be a miracle just like its name EVERMIRACLE S.
Before I got it, I googled this phone but all I got was French and Arabic because the makers EVERTEK are located in Tunisia.
Anyway, I decided to risk getting it and it turned out to be so good I found myself wanting to get another one for backup but sadly I had bought the last one :(
The phone specifications were clearly labelled on the factory screen protector which I have stuck to the blue back cover.
Without being wowed by the functions of the phone, I was already impressed with the contents in the box.
Back covers in three different colours and a clear hard cover protector:
These are often slipped in free of charge if the dealer is nice.
Anyway, now to the phone.
Here were the functions which I thought were cool!!!
As I am not a professional tech review, I am just pointing out what I feel is cool so to be honest, I don't know if these features are part of android 5.0 or they are part of the functions from EVERTEK.
If you press the fake call button, it will countdown from 15 seconds and you can stop it within the 15 seconds, when it reaches zero, the phone will ring as if someone called you with a withheld number and you answer it like normal.
It was a bit difficult filming from my other phone so you can only vaguely hear the voice.
(Hopefully I will explore that sometime by setting the language to French and see if it will speak French on the fake call.)
I am curious to know if there is a database of pre recorded languages so it will speak the relevant language according to the language setting on your phone.
Timer for face masks and boiling and egg:
Scheduled power on/off:
Reasonable macro focus:
Record conservations when there is a incoming call by pressing record before you pick up:
Face lock option:
I haven't tried this yet because I don't want to risk locking up my phone permanently.
Included cache cleaner:
(not quite sure what this is, but I hope it can help block spams on some applications.)
Other lovely features are pre-installed Facebook and messenger, app to that reads office docs and a reasonable battery endurance which last for a day.
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.

I love lemon and pepper so these potato hoops were addictive yet at the same time I found them way to spicy for my tastebuds so I couldn't eat it all in one go.
TOHATO BOKUN Habanero Pepper Lemon
More crisps in this range:
I love Guacamole but this one was too spicy for me but the consistency and texture was good with avocado.
I don't know why I tried this Ovaltine Nutritional malted chocolate wafer.
Anyway, I didn't find it impressive because it just tasted like a chocolate covered wafer and there was no malted taste to it.
The new Dreyer's Hong Kong D collection Italian Layer cone basically tastes like a Vienetta.
But after you've eaten the top part of the cone, you are left with plain vanilla and chocolate icecream at the bottom.
The Japanese Snickers MAX CACAO was actually really nice because it is covered in dark choc and the caramel in the middle tastes chocolately and you won't find that nougat layer like the normal ones so it is less sweet :)
Discovered these new Mint Maltesers trending in Australia and I was so lucky to get a pack as my friend was in Australia.
They are so addictive with a minty taste but a bit too sweet so perhaps it would taste better if they had used dark chocolate.
I have always wanted to get this but unfortunately it comes in packs of four which I thought was difficult to finish but they tasted so good that I had two in one go.
When you peel back the lid, there is a pretty swirl of mint green and chocolate.
The taste is so light and airy that it disappears in your mouth hence the reason I can have two pots in one go.
The taste is a bit like mint chocolate flavoured whipped cream.
Discovered this Peyoung chocolate yakisoba which was launched for Valentines day 2017.
I didn't buy this but if I did, I would have probably treated it as a dessert.
Shinichi has tried it and it seems like I haven't missed out!
Discovered this at the supermarket but unfortunately I didn't buy it.
Luckily, it has been review and it sounds delicious so I will probably buy it and review it soon so stayed tuned.
As well as Maple syrup, you can now get Agave syrup.
Naturel Agave syrup is made from Blue agave (Agave tequilana), which is used to produce TEQUILA!!!!
It is claimed to be a healthy sweetener because it is low in glycemic index (GI), gluten free, 25% sweeter than refined sugar, GMO and allergen free whilst being vegan friendly.
I gave this thick syrup a try and indeed I only needed a little bit to sweeten my drink because it was quite sweet.
It was fragrant like maple syrup so I am going to put some on my pancakes next time, although it can be used as a chicken wing glazing for BBQs!!

Great colouful design but unfortunately I didn't like the taste because it was just sweet, sweet and sweet and the curry flavour was lacking.
The design of the cup noodle is the same as the 45th anniversary series where they had controversial sharks fin and turtle.
I found pieces of black fungus, bell peppers, spring onions and beef which can be found when you peel back the lid.
After adding water the broth was quite white and milky.
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.

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:
When you remove the wrapper, there is a pretty jelly block that is firm and tough.
To make the jelly, it is best to cut them into squares cubes.
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.
Video of the jelly wobbling!
These noodles are available in the UK under Nestle.
At the back, there are instructions on how to cook them.
As with all British Instant noodles, it is best to use less water as the flavour get diluted.
The noodles are soft within minutes as the strands of noodles are very fine.
